Same-Day Crowns in Fairfield, CT
With Same-Day Crown technology, we’re able to streamline the process of getting dental crowns, reducing what was once a weeks-long process into one that takes only a single office visit. In the past, crowns required two separate dental appointments: one in which the tooth is prepared for the crown and impressions are taken, and a second appointment a few weeks later to bond the permanent crown to the tooth.
How Same-Day Crowns Work
Same-Day Crowns eliminates the long wait and the need for a temporary crown. In one appointment, your tooth will be prepared, your crown will be fabricated on-site, and will be bonded in place.
Once your tooth is prepared for your crown, we use Same-Day Crowns advanced digital impression technology to take a 3D scan of your teeth and jaw. With these models, we can project how your restoration will interact with your surrounding teeth and make refinements to the design as needed. Next, we fabricate a custom-fitting crown that is tooth-colored, your Same-Day Crown is bonded to your tooth and your restoration is complete.
