Gone are the days of your crown procedure requiring more than one visit. At Pastel Dental in San Francisco, California, Alex Pastel, DDS, Leah Life, DDS, and the expert dental team offer same-day crowns to restore your teeth. If you have a damaged tooth, call the Laurel Heights office for an appointment or use the online booking tool.
Dental crowns are placed over your damaged, natural teeth to protect them. They mimic the look and feel of your very own teeth.
In the past, traditional crowns required at least two visits to your provider. In some cases, the process could take weeks or even months.
At Pastel Dental, the team uses highly regarded CEREC® one-hour porcelain crowns. With state-of-the-art technology, your provider can create custom crowns for you in just one visit in about an hour.
Same-day crowns fix a host of dental issues, including:
A porcelain crown allows you to keep your natural tooth and its root, preventing tooth loss and avoiding bone loss in your jaw, as well.
Before creating your crown, your provider prepares your tooth. The team at Pastel Dental then creates your same-day crown by:
The final step involves placing the crown over your prepared tooth, securing it with an adhesive.
Most notably, CEREC porcelain crowns eliminate multiple trips to the dentist’s office. The one-hour treatment also means you don’t have to wear a temporary crown between visits. The process saves you time and discomfort.
Additionally, to create the impression of your teeth for your crown, you don’t have to bite into the sticky, plastic mold once used for traditional molds. The advanced computer scanning technology does all the work and produces a more precise impression than the former ones.
