Same-Day Crowns with CEREC | Al Gulum, DDS
Receiving a crown typically takes several visits to the dental office. With the latest advancements in dentistry, patients are able to receive crowns in a single visit instead. Dr. Al Gulum offers same-day crowns and restorations services to patients in Fresh Meadows and across Queens, New York.
One-Visit Crowns in Queens
Keeping a beautiful smile involves maintaining optimal oral health. At times, that includes restoring teeth treated for decay or damage with crowns, inlays, or onlays. While traditional restorations would typically require several visits to the dental office to gather impressions, send the impressions off to a lab, and repeat if the restorations did not fit properly at first, our practice provides convenient same-day treatment for crowns and similar restorations. Additionally, adjustments for ill-fitting crowns are done on the same day.
The process of crafting customized same-day crowns involves gathering impressions and taking a single block of porcelain or other dental material compatible with the CEREC milling device and using that to craft a restoration.
Providing Crowns in a Day in Fresh Meadows
Computer aided designing/manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology allows Dr. Gulum to gather digital impressions that are directly downloaded into the smile designing program. The impressions are then translated to the CEREC milling machine where a block a dental material is ground down and fitted to the unique shape of the individual’s smile. This eliminates the need for temporaries and second or third visits to the dental offices to follow up with treatment.
In addition to the same-day services provided by crowns crafted from CEREC, these restorations boast a list of positive qualities, including:
- Highly Accurate Restorations
- Natural-Looking Appearance
- Completely Metal-Free Design
- Incredibly Durable
Same-day crowns are perfect for patients that cannot schedule more than one dental appointment in a short period of time.
It can be essential to a person’s dental health to restore a tooth after it has been treated or damaged in order to maintain the integrity of adjacent teeth and surrounding bone. Patients that receive same-day crowns avoid any time without the complete structure and avoid shifting and other potential issues.
