If you have ever had a dental crown placed in the past, it likely required multiple visits to the dentist and a temporary crown that you had to “baby” between visits. At Paxton Dental Care, patients in the Paxton and Worcester, MA area no longer must wait – with CEREC® technology, Dr. Scott Siemen can prepare, create, and place your dental crown all in the same visit.
I’ve been a patient of Dr. Siemen’s for over ten years and have always had good experiences. He and his team make me comfortable when I’ve needed to have anything beyond a basic cleaning. Always patient in explaining what he is going to do and why. For anyone looking for a kind, caring and professional dental practice I highly recommend Dr. Siemen.
How same day crowns work
One visit crowns have truly revolutionized the way we place dental crowns. Since dental crowns are one of the most common dental restorations, investing in CEREC technology has enabled us to help our patients get the restorative dental care they need quickly, saving the time and hassle associated with traditional crowns—and even better, without sacrificing quality.
A same-day crown visit usually takes about an hour and a half to two hours. First, Dr. Siemen prepares your tooth for the crown to be placed by shaping the tooth. Then, we take digital impressions of your teeth and use advanced CAD/CAM 3D technology to digitally create your crown, which is then milled using CEREC® technology out of a block of strong and durable ceramic. The ceramic is shaded to match your other teeth so that your crown blends in seamlessly with your smile. You can sit back and relax, take a nap, or catch up on emails while your crown is being created. Once it is ready, Dr. Siemen will place the crown in your mouth to check the fit and adjust it as needed before cementing it into place.
