We don’t believe that getting restorative dentistry should be difficult or stressful. We know that our patients lead busy lives; however, the health of your smile should still take priority. If you are dealing with a damaged tooth that requires a dental crown, we know how important it is to restore your smile as quickly and effectively as possible. This is why our Portage, MI, dentist Dr. Keith Cohrs offers same visit dental crowns, or CEREC crowns.

Just as the name suggests, same-day crowns are designed, made and placed in just one visit. They look and feel just like a traditional crown the only difference is that instead of turning to an outside dental lab to create your restoration, our Portage, MI, general dentist can do all of this in-house. Here are some of the benefits of single visit dental crowns.

Streamlined dental care: Instead of having to wait weeks for a dental lab to fabricate your crown we can now make it a lot simpler to get crowns, overlays/inlays and veneers. With CAD/CAM technology, we can now design and make your restoration right here in-office.

No need for temporary crowns: Since we can place CEREC crowns in just one visit this negates the need for a temporary crown. Since temporary crowns are only meant to protect the prepared tooth while the permanent crown is being made they are a bit awkward, bulky, and unnatural. With same-day crowns you won’t even need a temporary crown.

No messy impressions: Since restorations are custom-made to fit your smile our dentist will need to take impressions of your mouth. With traditional crowns this meant applying a goopy material over the teeth and letting it harden. Now, we can take quick digital impressions that are automatically sent to a computer so that we can get to work designing your restoration. Less mess, faster results.
