Same-Day Dental Crowns With CEREC

Same-Day Crowns In Myrtle Beach With CEREC

Custom color-matched dental crowns The CEREC PrimeScan and on-site milling system is designed to give you beautiful same-day dental crowns the on your first visit. By combining a state-of-the-art 3D imaging camera with an in-house crown mill gives Dr. Savage at Saint James Dentistry the ability to map, color-match, create, and place your crown right in our Surfside Beach, SC dental office. The process for creating and placing your same-day crowns is simple:

Step #1: Dental Consultation & Examination

After a dental consolation and examination, your dentist may determine the damage to your tooth requires a root canal and crown. At this point Dr. Savage will review your options and explain the benefits and convenience of same-day crowns using the CEREC system.


Step #2: Repair & Preparation

Your dentist will repair your tooth, such as a root canal, and ensure you are cavity-free and ready to proceed with your crown.  At this point, your dentist will prepare the tooth and shape it to form the base for your new same-day crown.


Step #3: CEREC Primescan 3D Imaging

The CEREC system uses a special camera to both take an accurate picture of the area your crown will go, as well as create a 3D computer model of your teeth.  This 3D map will allow for an unparalleled level of accuracy in placing the crown.  Then, your dentist will use CAD/CAM technology (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) to create design your crown, and digitally test fit. 

Once your dental crown is digitally complete, your tooth color will be matched perfectly to one of hundreds of shades of ceramic crown “blanks.” 

Step #4: On-Site Ceramic Dental Crown Milling

Once your new tooth is created and perfectly color matched it is sent to our on-site milling machine that will form your permanent crown right in our Surfside Beach office!  Best of all, from the time we take your digital impression with the CEREC camera to the time your permanent crown is complete is just one hour.


Step #5: Placing Your Custom Color-Matched Crown

The best part of the CEREC same-day dental crown system is after just an hour your new crown is ready to be placed on your prepared tooth.  Thanks to the computer-aided design and color matching process the crown is put in place and only minor fitting is necessary.  


Step #6: Enjoying Your New Beautiful Smile!

That’s it!  In just a single visit you’ll go from having a painful cavity to having a permanent crown that looks and matches your other teeth perfectly.  All you have to do now is relax and be sure to brush, floss, and take care of your new crown just like any other tooth.
