No more wait: Same Day Crowns

Are you tired of having to go to the dentist for multiple visits when getting a permanent crown bonded on? We now offer same day crowns services at Koplon Implant & Family Dentistry, which allows you to have your entire dental procedure completed in one visit, without the need for additional visits. Our Same Day Crowns services requires no need for temporary crowns or multiple impressions throughout several appointments, and we we can complete the crown procedure in one day from the comfort of our office. 

 If you’ve ever had to have a root canal or have gone through the dental implant process, you know the drill. Once the procedure is near completed, the dentist takes a putty impression of your tooth, sends it off to the lab to be developed and in the mean time, places a temporary crown in your mouth. Often times, the putty impression is messy and your temporary can fall out from normal everyday wear, causing discomfort and inconvenience. 

At Koplon Implant & Family Dentistry, we are proud to offer a new alternative to temporary crowns through our CEREC Same Day Crowns technology, also known as Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing, or CAD/CAM. Now, our team can take a digital impression of your mouth, design your crown and develop the crown all in one appointment, all in our office. You can leave with a permanent crown the same day of your procedure, eliminating the need for a temporary restoration and future appointments. 

We have many people ask: how does it work? After we take a digital impression of your mouth, a highly effective alternative to molded impressions, a block of dental ceramic is milled in our in-office lab, always in a color that matches the shade of your natural teeth. In minutes, we are able to have a carved permanent crown ready to permanently bond to your tooth. No more appointments or temporary crowns needed, just Same Day Crowns– how easy is that?
