Dental crowns can be recommended for both cosmetic and restorative purposes, and are one of the most common dental treatments performed today. Dr. Donald Reid places high quality ceramic and porcelain crowns in his Truckee, CA dentist office, often during a single visit.
A dental crown may be recommended for the following reasons:
- Damaged tooth
- Misshapen tooth
- Discolored tooth
- Strengthen a tooth after a root canal
- As part of a treatment plan for missing teeth
Same Day Crowns with CEREC: What To Expect
Dr. Reid uses CEREC technology (CAD/CAM) to provide same day dental restorations that are custom color matched and fit for a lasting result. Your procedure will begin with easy and convenient digital impressions- no messy impressions trays and gooey mess!
Dr. Reid will use the high resolution images to design and fabricate your dental crown while you wait using the CEREC milling machine. Once complete, he will permanently secure the crown and make final adjustments for a comfortable fit. You can leave the same day with your final dental crown- and new smile.
If necessary, a local anesthetic is used for comfort, but otherwise the entire procedure is relatively painless- and there is no return trip to the dentist.
