Same-Day Crowns (CAD/CAM)
in North Scottsdale, AZ

Struggling with a cracked or damaged tooth is a pain. Realizing you have to wait 2-4 weeks for a permanent crown only adds to the stress. Same-day ceramic crowns let you skip the wait and get your smile back in just a single visit.

Why should I get a same-day crown?

If you are dealing with a broken, cracked, or deeply damaged tooth, getting a Same-Day Crown can restore it in just a couple of hours. Same-Day Crowns are manufactured in house from a compressed CEREC E.max block, comprised of lithium disilicate glass-ceramic. This material, E.max, is chosen for strength and translucency, which look, function and feel like natural tooth enamel. With proper care and regular visits to your dentist, your crown can last for decades.

Because Same-Day Crowns are completed efficiently in a single visit, there’s no need to worry about a second appointment to schedule. The entire procedure is efficient and straightforward, allowing you to conveniently restore both your tooth and leave you with better oral health than when you came in!

Intraoral Scanner = Mess-Free Treatment

Traditional crown procedures often involve taking messy impressions of your teeth using molding materials. CAD/CAM technology uses digital impressions, which are more comfortable and less invasive.

Biologically Compatible Materials

E.max is a dental restorative material that is biocompatible with your mouth! E.max crowns show to be well-tolerated by the body and unlikely to cause allergic reactions or other adverse responses. This makes it a safe choice for dental patients.

Custom Designed Crowns In-Office

CEREC crowns are designed and fabricated on-site, so you can leave the dental office with your permanent crown in place on the same day as your initial appointment. This means you don't have to wear a temporary crown or go without a tooth covering for an extended period.

Nightguards? Not a Problem!

CAD/CAM scanners are used to take digital impressions of a patient's teeth and oral structures. Instead of using traditional physical impressions made with molds and dental putty, CAD/CAM scanners capture precise 3D images of the patient's teeth and bite. This process is more comfortable for the patient and eliminates the need for messy materials.

The Benefits of Same-Day Crowns

Treatment Is Done In Just A Couple Hours

If you have a busy schedule, same-day crowns give you a brand new tooth restoration in just a couple of hours.

No Temporary Crowns Necessary

Same-day crowns prevent complications that can occur with temporaries or multiple appointments, and give you a permanent dental solution quickly.

Fully Digital with CAD/CAM

CEREC technology utilizes computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) to create crowns with exceptional precision and accuracy.

The Same-Day Crown Treatment Process

Digital Models & Milling

After a procedure or retainers, the area of interest will be dried, and Dr. Wytko will begin taking pictures of the prepared tooth, teeth in the area, and your bite using the intraoral scanner. These pictures are then stitched together to produce a precise 3D model of your teeth! Once the crown design is finalized, the CAD/CAM system generates instructions for a milling machine. The milling machine carves the crown out of a solid block of e.max ceramic material. This milling process is highly precise and efficient.

Fit Inspection & Adjustments

Since CAD/CAM crowns are fabricated in-house, there is less risk of issues like miscommunication between the dental office and the laboratory, leading to a higher likelihood of a well-fitting crown. Dr. Wytko, or assistant, will try- in the crown and make any small adjustments to ensure you can keep it clean.

Permanent Crown Placement

Once the crown is out of the oven, it is prepared for the cementation process. The tooth receiving the crown is isolated, dried, and conditioned for cementation. After cementing the crown, Dr. Wytko flosses around the crown, bite is verified comfortable, and the patient leaves with better oral health then when they came in!

Frequently Asked Questions

What issues can a same-day crown treat?

Same-day crowns with CAD/CAM technology like CEREC, can be used to treat a variety of dental issues. These crowns are versatile and can address both functional and esthetic concerns.

Same-day crowns can restore teeth with significant decay or cavities. They cover and protect the damaged tooth, preventing further decay and restoring its function.Teeth that have experienced fractures or minor breaks, whether due to trauma or wear and tear, can be repaired and strengthened with crowns. Same-day crowns are particularly beneficial for quick restoration in such cases.

Teeth that have undergone root canal therapy often become more brittle and are susceptible to fractures. A crown is typically placed over a root canal-treated tooth to strengthen it and prevent fractures.

How do I know if I need a same-day crown?

If you have a damaged or severely decayed tooth, or are in need of emergency care, you may need a same-day crown. You should see your dentist if you are experiencing tooth pain and discomfort, or if your teeth are visibly damaged or discolored. Depending on the cause of your dental issues, they may recommend a same-day crown or another restorative treatment.

How long do same-day crowns last?

A well-made and properly placed same-day crown can last up to 15 years. It’s critical to maintain good oral health habits to enhance your crown’s longevity. These practices include brushing twice per day, flossing once per day, and seeing your dentist every 6 months for a professional cleaning and exam.

How do I care for my same-day crown?

You can treat your same-day crown just like a natural tooth. Make sure you brush twice a day for at least two minutes, ensuring you scrub the full surface of every tooth. You should floss at least once per day, preferably at night. This should only take a few minutes, but be sure to floss against the tooth and below the gum line. You should also see your dentist every six months for a check-up to make sure that your dental work and teeth are healthy.

Are same-day dental crowns covered by insurance?

Same-day dental crowns that are required for restorative purposes, such as severe cavities or a broken tooth, are typically covered by insurance. The exact amount of coverage you receive will depend on the deductible and yearly limits of your policy.

If you require a crown for cosmetic purposes, such as covering up a discolored tooth, the procedure may not be covered by insurance. To make sure your procedure is covered, we recommend consulting with your insurer.

Can I get same-day crowns on my front teeth?

Yes! A same-day crown will cover any visible discoloration or chips on your tooth. This coverage is especially beneficial in the case of highly-visible front teeth. Your dentist will match it to the color of your other teeth so it fits in with the rest of your smile.
