Dental crowns are a versatile and reliable restoration option. Some people, however, do not like having to wear an uncomfortable temporary crown while they are waiting for a dental lab to create their permanent restoration. Thankfully, you do not have to! Dr. Surjit Chahal is proud to offer same-day dental crowns in Modesto, California, to give you a healthy smile in just one visit. Call Allure Dental Care & Orthodontics at 209-521-3400 to learn more and set up your appointment with our dentists today.
Dental crowns traditionally required two or more visits to completely restore your smile. But thanks to state-of-the-art CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) technology, our dentists and team can create your restoration in just one visit to our office. What used to take days or weeks can now be done in just a few minutes with more precision than ever before.
The process for receiving a same-day dental crown is similar to the traditional method; the steps are all just done in a single visit and in a much shorter period of time. At your appointment, our dentists will:
- Examine and prepare the tooth for the crown. This includes removing any broken or decayed parts of the tooth.
- Create a 3D model of your mouth and your restoration.
- Mill the restoration from a block of tooth-colored material.
- Place the crown and make any adjustments you need for it to fit perfectly.
Once the crown is placed, we will polish it, and your treatment will be done! We will make sure you know how best to care for your crown. If you would like to learn more, contact our office today!
