Convenience is the biggest benefit of same-day crowns. Traditionally, crowns take at least 2 appointments over a period of 2-3 weeks. You also have to wear a temporary resin crown to protect your tooth between appointments. Temporaries can be prone to loosening, breaking, or even falling off of your tooth completely.
With a same-day crown, you can avoid all these complications, and get your new tooth in just a single, 1-2 hour appointment at Bespoke Dentistry. Dr. Stempfle will work closely with you to ensure a perfect fit, amazing results, and a long lifespan for your new crown. Same-day crowns offer excellent protection and are easier to fit into your busy schedule. Get in touch now to schedule your consultation in San Diego.
To begin the CEREC process, Dr. Stempfle will clean your mouth and numb the treatment area. Next, she will numb the treatment area and use a dental drill to remove any unhealthy tooth material. She will trim your tooth to create a stable platform for your same-day crown.
Next, Dr. Stempfle will use a digital scanner to scan your mouth and create a 3D image of your tooth. She will use this scan and a special computer program to begin designing your new dental crown.
Once Dr. Stempfle has completed your initial crown design, she will send it to our CEREC machine. She will load a block of tooth-colored porcelain into the machine, which uses a special robot to carve your crown. This only takes a few minutes.
After your crown is finished, Dr. Stempfle will retrieve it from the CEREC machine, then check the fit. She will make sure that it fits properly and make any necessary adjustments. She can even remake the crown if necessary. Once everything looks perfect, she’ll use special dental cement to permanently bond your crown to your tooth, and you’ll be sent home to enjoy your new smile. The entire process usually takes less than two hours at Bespoke Dentistry.

If you’re considering same-day dental crowns, it’s understandable to be concerned about cost. Perhaps you may wonder if this treatment is covered by your dental insurance. The truth is that insurance can cover crowns only under certain circumstances.
If dental crowns are done for medical purposes, coverage is possible with a coverage cost of 50 to 80 percent. However, they might not be covered if it’s done for cosmetic reasons. The best way to know what’s covered and what’s not is to talk to your San Diego dentist to explain your dental insurance coverage in detail. The team at Bespoke Dentistry will gladly answer any questions you might have.
