Dental crowns are one of several dental restorations used at Neal Edwards DDS in Riverside, California, to help patients achieve a strong, functional, and attractive smile. These restorations, sometimes called porcelain “caps,” are used to cover a tooth’s structure to protect it from damage and strengthen it for proper function. Dental crowns are also used over restorations, such as dental implants, to replace a single tooth. Most dental practices offer dental crowns, but they can take weeks to complete. If you are seeking “same-day tooth replacement solutions near me,” look no further. Dr. Neal Edwards utilizes state-of-the-art equipment to ensure patients can obtain same-day dental crowns and other porcelain restorations. This is achieved with CEREC technology which provides in-house restorations while patients wait in the dental chair!
Dr. Neal Edwards describes CEREC, which stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic, as a revolutionary process that combines cutting-edge technology with skilled craftsmanship. Using this system, he takes digital impressions and designs restorations, such as dental crowns, in just one visit! CEREC technology features an advanced software program that can generate 3D models for the restoration desired by patients. This allows Dr. Edwards to create a perfect replica of the patient’s mouth that is incredibly accurate and perfectly fits their unique situation. CEREC also eliminates the need for temporaries, as same-day crowns can be completed in one visit!
Thanks to CEREC technology, patients looking for fast, reliable dental restorations can receive high-quality solutions while they wait, eliminating extra appointments and allowing those with even the busiest of schedules to get the dental work they need. During your initial appointment with Dr. Neal Edwards, he will evaluate you to determine if you are a good fit for a dental crown and then talk to you about the advantages of utilizing CEREC same-day crowns to provide protection, strength, and esthetics to your smile!
First, Dr. Neal Edwards will determine if you could benefit from a crown before he files down the tooth structure. Once the tooth is prepared, digital impressions are taken and sent to the CEREC software for analysis. Using a block of porcelain, the CEREC device then mills out the final restoration within 20 minutes, after which Dr. Edwards will then bond the restoration in place and complete the process.
