Same-day Dental Crowns Can Restore Your Smile in a Single Visit
Dr. Danny O’Keefe can provide high-quality same-day dental crowns at our Jackson, MS practice to restore or replace teeth. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that covers the entire tooth following treatment for decay or trauma. Crowns can also restore a dental implant to replace a single missing tooth. Thanks to sophisticated technological advancements, a process that once took weeks and multiple visits to the dentist can now be completed in a single visit. To learn more about same-day crowns, or to schedule a consultation with Dr. O’Keefe, please contact our practice today.
Same-day Crown Candidates
Patients who are in need of a dental crown to restore or replace a tooth are usually candidates for same-day crowns. After performing a thorough evaluation of the structures of your smile, Dr. O'Keefe will determine your candidacy for a same-day crown and make his recommendation for your treatment. If you require a crown that incorporates metal, the best solution may be a handmade crown.
Our Advanced CEREC® System
Traditional crowns require at least two appointments over the course of several weeks because a partnering dental laboratory must handcraft the restoration. With our sophisticated CEREC® technology, Dr. O’Keefe can create and place your crown in our office during a single visit. Our system takes a digital impression of your tooth, and this information guides computerized tools in crafting a beautiful, natural-looking crown from a single block of porcelain. This process allows Dr. O’Keefe to oversee every aspect of your restorative treatment and deliver your permanent crown within hours, rather than weeks.
CEREC® (Chairside Economic Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) uses computer-aided drafting and computer-aided manufacturing technology (CAD/CAM) to create a restoration according to the precise dimensions of your smile. The principles of this technology are the same that have contributed to the design and manufacturing of complex components used in everything from space shuttles to the cars we drive each day. By applying this sophisticated manufacturing method to dentistry, we can avoid having to use the often messy means of taking dental impressions, reduce the number of visits to the dentist, and help you experience relief faster than ever before.
