What is a Same Day Crown?
Our office uses the CEREC system to create beautiful crowns for your teeth here in our office while you wait. Dr. Maher takes photographs of your teeth using a special camera, which are then uploaded into the computer. The computer allows us to fine tune the shape of the teeth and then mills your crown -- while you wait -- from a solid piece of porcelain in the same shade as your teeth. The entire process can usually be done in one day, and once the crown is bonded to your tooth, you will be able to leave with teeth that have been restored to normal functionality.
Using the same CEREC system that creates custom-made crowns, Dr. Maher can also fabricate your custom-made bridge. Just like with crowns, your teeth will be photographed and those pictures uploaded into the CEREC computer. Each section of your bridge will be milled, and the completed bridge will then be bonded to the supporting teeth. Some bridges may still require traditional fabrication through one of our top-notch and trusted dental labs. Dr. Maher will be happy to discuss your options with you.
