At Great Northern Dental, we know that dental procedures can be inconvenient and time-consuming for many patients. Fortunately, advancements in dental technology have allowed us to offer same-day crowns as an alternative to traditional crowns. Dr. Jarvis can design and deliver tooth-colored crowns at one appointment using CEREC technology.
Same-day crowns can save you time and money, providing a durable and comfortable restoration and a convenient option for emergencies. If you want to learn more about same-day crowns and whether they are the right option, please get in touch with Great Northern Dental Care in Kalispell, Montana. We are happy to answer any questions and help you get the smile you’ve always wanted.
CEREC crowns are a same-day solution for tooth restoration, allowing you to walk into the practice with your existing teeth and walk out with a brand-new crown. They are the same high-quality porcelain crown or resin crown but are ready within a couple of hours instead of weeks. It is the perfect solution for busy patients, as you won’t have to wait for your crowns to be made. Dr. Jarvis can finish everything for you in just one single visit.
In some situations, crowns in your smile zone may require additional time to design the ideal tooth shape and shade. Still, they’re usually ready within a few days.
Patients often ask how long a crown will last. The most common reason a crown fails is recurrent decay at the edges or excessive grinding and clenching.
Keeping your cavity risk down and regular visits to your dentist is your best insurance. With the proper aftercare, crowns can last more than 10-20 years before needing to be replaced! We look forward to helping you decide if a same-day crown is a suitable treatment for you! Text or call Great Northern Dental Care at (406) 257-5696 to make an appointment.
Before starting the crown process, Dr. Jarvis digitally scans your tooth. We use CAD-CAM technology for a perfect fit with your new crowns. This ensures they fit precisely with your bite and look as natural as possible. Once he removes the defective tooth material, the design process begins. A lot of our patients like to watch the design, milling, and firing process. We look forward to serving you and sharing the benefits of this amazing technology.
Feeling anxious? We have several options like overhead TVs with Roku remotes and headphones, nitrous/laughing gas, and mild sedation. Our goal is a pain free and comfortable experience. Dr. Jarvis is known for gentle dentistry. From communicating your dental needs to the delivery of anesthetic, and treating your teeth, Dr. Jarvis always strives for a pain-free and comfortable experience.
Saves You Time
Same-day crowns are created using state-of-the-art technology that allows Dr. Jarvis to take digital impressions of your teeth. He then uses computer-aided design/(CAD/CAM) technology to create a custom-made crown on-site using a milling machine. You can receive your permanent crown in just one visit instead of the two or three visits required for other types of crowns. It saves you time and minimizes your needing to take off work or pull away from other commitments.
High-Quality and Durable
Another benefit of same-day dental crowns is that they are made from high-quality, durable materials designed to last. These crowns are typically made from ceramic or zirconia, which are strong materials that can withstand the wear and tear of everyday use. This means that your crown can last for many years, allowing you to avoid the cost and inconvenience of needing a replacement soon.
A Perfect Fit
Additionally, they are designed to fit your teeth perfectly, meaning they are comfortable and function just like your natural teeth. It allows you to eat, speak, and smile confidently, knowing that your crown has a natural tooth color and looks and feels 100 percent natural.
Same-day crowns are a convenient option for emergencies. Suppose you have a dental emergency and need a crown quickly. In that case, we can often provide you with a CEREC crown on the very same day!
