Get a Crown in One Day!

At North County Dental Specialties we want to make dentistry as convenient as possible for our patients. The latest modern dental technology allows us to help you save time at the dental office. One way we do so is by the type of dental crown we offer. In fact, you can get a crown in one day!

Proud to Offer a Single Visit Crown

Getting a dental crown can take a lot of time. After all, it involves messy impressions, multiple dental visits, and not to mention temporary dental crowns. However, we can save you  so much time at North County with the help of Cerec technology. This allows us to design, create, and deliver a brand new crown in a single day!

How Does It Work?

Once the tooth is prepped, a special hand-held camera will take images of the tooth which will be sent to the computer. Here, a three-dimensional model will be adapted and shaped on the computer by an operator in the dental office. This information will be sent to a milling machine which will create the design using a porcelain block. Almost done! The final steps are to try the crown on for size, glaze and polish it, and finally cement it down! The entire process generally takes 2 to 2.5 hours.

You will be in and out before you know it! We love answering any and all of your questions! Give us a call with any more questions you may have about this fabulous dental technology. We can’t wait to hear from you! 760-233-5887
