Same-Day Crowns with CEREC
Leading the way in durable and low-maintenance tooth replacement, dental implants are the closest thing a person can have to a biological tooth. These prosthetics replace the missing tooth structure below the gums so that a single crown or bridge can be attached to them. Multiple implants can be placed into the jaw to hold a denture, too. Dental implants are ridged metal components that resemble a screw. They are made from titanium and are only a few millimeters wide. After they are placed, bone will stabilize the implant.

Before the development of CAD/CAM technology, receiving a permanent crown took a few weeks because they had to be made in dental laboratories by technicians. This technology, however, allows our team at Parker-Nickolas-Read Dental to provide crown placement the same day as initial treatment. Having crowns placed same-day eliminates weeks of wait time, therefore allowing a person to enjoy a beautiful, natural restoration in as little time as possible.
To produce crowns in one appointment, Parker-Nickolas-Read Dental utilizes the CEREC system, which includes very advanced computer software and an onsite milling machine. The software takes three-dimensional images to create the crown’s specifications. Then, the crown is milled from high-quality blocks of ceramic. At the end of treatment, patients enjoy a restoration that increases oral function, protects their teeth, and enhances their appearance.
Bridges are prosthetics that close the gaps of a smile by filling in missing tooth structure between teeth with a series of crowns. These prosthetics anchor to existing teeth and can replace up to three or four teeth in a row. One of the oldest methods of replacing teeth are dentures. These prosthetics can replace all of the teeth in an arch or just a few missing teeth. Dentures are affordable and helpful to those who have suffered from gum disease or bone resorption. Dental implants are prosthetics that are surgically embedded into the jawbone to replace the missing roots of teeth. Once they are stabilized by bone fusing to them, dental implants can support prosthetics like crowns, bridges, and dentures.
Dental implants can be used for different prosthetics. For instance, a dental implant can hold a crown for single tooth replacement. For edentulous patients, however, dental implants that are slightly smaller in diameter can be embedded throughout the jaw to support a full denture. Dental implants stabilize dentures and prevent their movement during oral function.
