Quality Dental Crowns Preserve and Protect Your Teeth for a Lifetime of a Healthy, Stunning Smile

You may need a dental crown for several cosmetic and non-cosmetic reasons. Dr. Chitra Pradeep can recommend a dental Crown (cap) to beautify your stained or fractured tooth. Restoration-wise, we may recommend a dental crown to strengthen a weakened tooth or to complete a tooth replacement process, such as an implant or bridge.

While crowns are incredible appliances in dentistry, most patients are turned off by the lengthy treatment process, which typically may stretch over several weeks. However, thanks to CAD/CAM technology, dental offices like Aqua Dental can prepare and install dental crowns as you wait! Don’t believe it? There is only one way to confirm. Please book an appointment with Aqua Dental and see for yourself.

iTero Digital scans for Dental Crown Procedure

The initial steps of getting same-day dental crowns aren’t much different from traditional crowns. After examining your tooth, we prepare your tooth by shaving down your enamel—the procedure is done under anesthesia to minimize discomfort. However, instead of gooey impressions, we use an iTero intraoral scanner to capture images of your mouth.

The images are fed into the CAD/CAM unit, which designs and fabricates your crown as you wait. We don’t send dental molds to an off-site dental lab—after Dr. Pradeep approves the crown design, fabrication is done right here in our office using an in-house milling machine.

Once your crown is ready, we make minor changes for a comfortable fit. Then, we use dental cement to bond it permanently on your tooth.

Same day Dental Crowns are Durable and Have Other Benefits

Often, good things are worth waiting for, but this isn’t the case with same day crowns. When we restore your teeth with same-day crowns, they are just as durable and strong as crowns fabricated through the traditional route. So, you aren’t trading quality for speed when you opt for single-visit crowns.

The other benefits include:

  • They save time – everything from preparation to installation is done in one appointment
  • More accurate ­– your crown is produced with the exact specifications of the design
  • They don’t need temporary crowns, known to loosen or fall out before your next appointment

If you have a damaged or decayed tooth or your old filling has fallen out, we are here to help. At Aqua Dental in Austin, Texas, we offer same-day dental crowns to restore your smile in a single appointment. Please dial (512) 643-6571 to book an appointment.
