Apr 17, 2024 | General Dentistry

Welcome to Briargate Dental, your premier destination for dental care in Colorado Springs, CO. We prioritize your dental health and strive to offer comprehensive solutions tailored to your needs. One common dental procedure that many individuals may require is getting a crown. Whether you’re addressing damage or seeking cosmetic enhancement, understanding the process of obtaining a crown is crucial. At Briargate Dental, we’re proud to offer same-day crowns, ensuring a seamless and efficient experience. Let’s explore the journey of acquiring a crown with us.

Understanding Same-Day Crowns

Same-day crowns, also known as CEREC crowns, revolutionize the traditional crown process by enabling patients to receive their permanent restoration in just one visit. Utilizing advanced CAD/CAM technology, we can design, fabricate, and place custom crowns in a single appointment, eliminating the need for temporary restorations and multiple visits.

Initial Consultation:
Your journey towards a same-day crown begins with an initial consultation at Briargate Dental. During this appointment, our experienced dentists will assess your oral health, discuss your concerns and treatment goals, and determine whether a crown is the ideal solution for your needs. With our commitment to patient-centered care, we ensure that you feel informed and empowered throughout the decision-making process.

Treatment Planning:
Once it’s established that a crown is necessary, we’ll collaborate with you to create a personalized treatment plan. We’ll discuss the available options for crown materials and address any questions or concerns you may have. Our goal is to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of your treatment options, ensuring that you feel confident and comfortable moving forward.

With same-day crowns, the preparation process is similar to traditional crowns. We’ll prepare the affected tooth by removing any damaged or decayed portions and shaping it to accommodate the crown. Local anesthesia is administered to ensure your comfort during the procedure.

Digital Impression:
Following tooth preparation, we’ll take digital impressions of the treated tooth and surrounding teeth using our state-of-the-art CAD/CAM technology. These digital impressions provide precise 3D models, allowing us to design your custom crown with unparalleled accuracy.

Design and Fabrication:
Using the digital impressions, our skilled team will design your custom crown using advanced computer-aided design software. Once the design is finalized, the information is sent to our in-house milling unit, where your crown is fabricated from high-quality ceramic material. Our streamlined process ensures that your crown is crafted to exact specifications, guaranteeing a perfect fit and natural appearance.

Final Placement:
After the crown is milled, it is immediately ready for placement. Your dentist will carefully fit the crown onto the prepared tooth, ensuring optimal aesthetics and functionality. Once the fit is confirmed, the crown is permanently bonded in place, allowing you to leave our office with a beautiful, fully restored smile in just one visit.

Post-Treatment Care:
Following the placement of your same-day crown, our team will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your new restoration. Proper oral hygiene practices, including regular brushing and flossing, are essential for maintaining the health and longevity of your crown. With proper care, your same-day crown can provide years of durable, aesthetic enhancement.
