Same Day Dental Crowns

Dr. Christopher Henes and his dental team are proud to offer a wide variety of services, including CEREC technology with same day crowns in Aurora, CO

What makes Dr. Christopher Henes and his dental practice unique? We offer our  patients the comfort of digital treatment processes with CEREC. Did you know that digital technology has been around for years?  Why trust any old digital dental technology when you can get the best and the one who has been around the longest. For more than 30 years, CEREC has been synonymous with single-visit restorations. CEREC has continuously developed and optimized same-day crowns,  always keeping the needs and the expectations of the patients in mind. Today, CEREC‘s capabilities extend far beyond same day crown. The Cerec  solution spectrum covers three key areas: restorative, implants, and orthodontics.

Same Day Crowns

Did you know you can get a crown in a day? At Iliff Family Dental, our team is trained in the revolutionary  technology of CEREC. This technology provides our team the ability to be in the chair and get a crown the same day.

Just like the typical process for dental crowns a CEREC same day crown is very similar.  Once your tooth and the area around the tooth is numb the tooth is prepared for a crown. Once the tooth is prepped then the magic of CEREC takes over.  

In as little of 4 steps you can walk away with a crown and don’t have to worry about a temporary crown.

1. Digital Impression

Due to the digital impression the patient doesn’t have to worry about the discomfort of conventional impression materials. Digital impressions with CEREC, is simple and easy and takes less time than conventional impressions.  The precise 3D models can be seen on the monitor and will impress our patients.

2. Design

Once the digital impression is loaded the CEREC software designs your crown right in front of your eyes. The Cerec software creates outstanding design proposals, based on their unique algorithm. It will automatically reconstruct genuine tooth restorations that are customized for each individual patient. This saves time since the initial proposal is so accurate that you can generate the final design of your restoration in no time at all. You benefit from the simple, clearly structured and intuitive user interface. Once the design portion is completed the crown is now fabricated.

3. Grinding or milling

The CEREC grinding and milling units and CEREC software are completely synchronized. The grinding or milling process for your designed restorations is extremely precise and creates smooth surfaces and margins, as well as ultrafine structures. The milling and grinding process can take as little as 12 minutes. The good thing about CEREC is that there are a large variety of materials to choose from because every patient and their teeth are different.  Even the strongest material, zirconium oxide, can be processed and placed in a single session

4. Finishing

Once the milling / grinding process is completed the crown is then placed on the tooth to make sure it accurately fits the tooth. All-ceramic zirconium oxide restorations can be sintered and glazed in the CEREC SpeedFire furnace right at Iliff Family Dental. In addition to zirconium oxide, all other glass ceramics can be processed. If we are using a non zirconia material then that material like E.Max is then glazed and fired before cementing the final restoration.

CEREC’s same day crown process

There are two great advantages of CEREC’s same day crown process. The first, is that the patient doesn’t have to worry about those pesky temporary crowns. Temporary crowns are temporarily cemented but can either fall off or crack while you are waiting for your final crown.  With CEREC you don’t have to worry about temporary crowns anymore. The second advantage is that with Cerec and getting a crown done in a day you don’t have to come back for a second appointment for cementing the crown. We all have busy schedules. Wouldn’t it be great just to get everything done at once so you don’t have to come back?
