If you have a cracked tooth or large cavity that needs to be repaired, there's a good chance that you need a full coverage crown. After all, there simply may not be enough tooth left to fill!
Unfortunately, traditional crown treatment is difficult for some people to work into their already hectic schedule. Generally, a crown requires about two trips to the dentist office to complete. But not anymore!
CEREC Same Day Crowns
At Atlantic Dental Partners in Jamaica Plain and Malden, we offer same day CEREC crowns. Thanks to 3D CAD/CAM technology, we can create a digital impression of your tooth, mill the new crown right here in our office, and bond it in place on the very same day. All you have to do is sit back and relax.
What are some of the advantages of getting a same day CEREC crown?
- You don't have to take extra time off of work, saving you money in the long run.
- All of your treatment can be completed in one visit, in most cases.
- Prevent unwanted failure or abscess of the tooth, by treating it as soon as possible.
- A durable crown that withstands normal biting forces.

Are Same Day Crowns Expensive?
