Aurora Family Dentistry Aurora CEREC Same Day Crowns

Aurora Family Dentistry of Aurora, Colorado today announced they will offer CEREC same-day crowns.

Crowns are used to cover damaged teeth, realistically replicating the appearance of the natural tooth. Traditional crowns are sometimes used to hold dental bridges in place as well. Because they are used for such a wide range of dental issues, crowns are very common.

The standard procedure for crowns takes weeks, but thanks to Aurora Family Dentistry’s adoption of CEREC, same-day crowns are now available to new and existing patients!

Dr. Ricks and Dr. Bailey have a team in place to answer questions about CEREC same-day crowns. In the meantime, learn more about Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics below.

According to an article published in the Journal of the American Dental Association, CEREC technology has been evolving continually since its first use in 1985 as new tools became available. Since then, many improvements have catapulted same-day crowns to popularity among both dentists and patients.

Here are a few reasons CEREC crowns are a preferred service for many offices:

  • Same-day service – The most obvious reason to opt for CEREC is that it eliminates the waiting period between designing new crowns and inserting them.
  • Strong ceramic material – Traditional crowns can be made of metal, porcelain, resin, or ceramic. Of these, ceramic is the optimal material due to its realistic appearance and its strength.
  • Little room for error – CEREC crowns are designed by a computer program while the patient sits in the dental chair. They are fitted in the same visit, so dentists can tell if there are any issues.  
  • Natural appearance – Ceramic crowns most closely replicate a patient’s natural tooth, and because CEREC crowns can be done the same day, the patient never has to leave the office without a crown in place. No one will ever know unless the tooth is actually a crown.

Aurora Family Dentistry is one of the only dental offices in the area to offer CEREC crowns. The doctors and staff want patients to have ALL the information necessary to make a decision about having a CEREC crown.

One thing to note about same-day crowns is that they are more expensive than traditional crowns due to the convenience of this service and the durability of the resulting crown.  

Aurora Family Dentistry provides a comfortable office for everyone in the family. With a focus on health and preventative care whenever possible, they take the dread out of dentist visits. Dr. Ricks, Dr. Bailey, and the rest of the staff work tirelessly to give patients one office with endless options, now including CEREC same-day crowns.

New and existing patients are welcome for crowns, extractions, TMJ treatment, Invisalign, and other cosmetic services.
