One Day Crowns
Bespoke CEREC Dental Crowns
Here at Southview Dental Care, we embrace the digital tools and technology that improve the experience of our patients. Our UK dental practice has a state-of-the-art piece of equipment called CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics). This machine is a combination of camera, computer, and dental restoration manufacturer.
Using cutting edge computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology, CEREC turns multiple visits for a crown into one single appointment. The machine uses 3D imaging software to create a detailed representation of your teeth, then highlights the areas that need restoring. It passes this blueprint to the milling unit, which sculpts a perfect-fitting CEREC dental crown onsite in twenty minutes or less.
CEREC dental crowns are made from very strong and natural looking materials, and our patients are impressed with how quickly we have been able to achieve such excellent results.
What to Expect at Your One Day Crown Appointment
If you have previously had a tooth repaired, it’s likely that the process started with the dentist taking impressions of the damaged area. They probably had to place a temporary crown over the tooth, which you had to wear for a couple of weeks or so, before coming back to the practice to be fit with your permanent crown.
Our investment in the CEREC tooth restoration system provides a more modern, professional and time-saving alternative. CEREC’s CAD technology eliminates the need for uncomfortable impressions and temporary crown placements. We’ll use a small, intraoral scanner (essentially a fancy 3D camera) to create precise digital impressions of your mouth — no uncomfortable dental putty required.
We use these high-quality images to generate your restoration during the same visit. CEREC restorations are made from tooth-coloured ceramic material, chosen to match perfectly your existing tooth colour. And because the technology is extremely precise, we are able to save more of the healthy parts of your tooth. Once the one day dental crown has been sculpted, we test the fit in your mouth and cement it in place before you carry on with your day.
Caring for a CEREC Dental Crown
As with a normal dental crown, your CEREC crown may feel a little strange for a few days, as it is unlikely to be exactly the same size and shape as your original tooth or teeth. However, you will soon become used to it, and your new crown will soon feel like a normal part of your mouth — you won’t even notice it after a while. If your CEREC dental crown does feel uncomfortable, please let us know, and we will check it for you.
One day crowns can last for many years, but only when you care for them properly. As with your natural teeth, you must brush twice a day and clean around the sides and under the gumline. Our dental hygienists will be happy to advise you on the best way to do this to ensure you’re cleaning your dental crown and the rest of your mouth properly.
Booking regular appointments to see the hygienist or dentist, can help prolong the life of your CEREC dental crown. They will be able to see how you are taking care of it, address any concerns you may have, and ensure the surrounding teeth are healthy too.
