How do dentists treat broken, discolored, weak, and decayed teeth? The ideal solution to these dental issues is dental crown placement. There are two types of dental crowns – crowns made in the lab and same-day crowns in Orlando. Today’s crowns are ingeniously designed to mimic the look of natural teeth.
Despite being artificial, dental crowns are cleverly made using superior quality materials to provide you with long-term results that improve both your smile and oral function. Many patients want to know if crowns made in the lab are better than crowns made in the dental office.
Same day crowns utilize CEREC® technology. CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. It’s a modern method of creating dental prosthetics like crowns using CAD/CAM dentistry or Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing.
Same-day crowns are made in the office using this innovative dental technology wherein 3D scans of your tooth are obtained as a model for creating the crowns. The waiting time is roughly 60 to 90 minutes.
Lab-made crowns are created outside the dental office. They can be made from porcelain-fused-to-metal, base metal alloys, or gold alloys. While same day crowns can restore your smile on the same day, traditional lab made crowns require at least two separate appointments.
The first appointment is acquiring an impression of your mouth. The impression is sent to the lab and used as a guide when designing your crown. It may take 2 to 3 weeks before your final crowns are made.
