Same Day Dentistry in Indianapolis
The conventional process of restoring and replacing teeth takes time and leaves many patients with a need for temporary restorations. At Hanson Family Dentistry, Dr. Donald Hanson provides patients with the option for same-day dental restorations using CEREC®.
Whether you are in need of a same-day crown for a large cavity, or are hoping to replace a tooth with a crown supported bridge or singular implant, contact our Indianapolis same-day dentist today. We ensure patients are able to smile with confidence and bite with comfort.
Restoring Smiles in One Appointment
CEREC, or Chairside Economic Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, allows us to fabricate a number of restorations within our office. The CEREC machine requires between four to 20 minutes to craft your restoration, based on your personal needs and the kind of restoration being milled. Once the prosthetic has been fabricated, it is hardened in our in-office ceramics oven and matched to the shade of your neighboring teeth. The restoration is then placed, allowing you to leave our office with a complete and aesthetically pleasing smile.
Same-day restorations provided by our practice include:
- Fixed Bridges
- Implant-Supported Bridges
One of the core benefits of CEREC is that it removes the hassle from taking the impressions necessary to restore your smile. 3D digital images are taken of your bite, ensuring that the restorations we provide are the ideal fit for your smile. These models allow us to be as accurate a possible when planning your treatment, and ensure that every patient’s new or restored teeth feel as natural as possible.
Durable and Aesthetic Materials
Our office’s CEREC machine uses e.max to create restorations that combine durability with the appearance of natural teeth. These materials are strong enough to support the pressures of regular chewing and combine the semi-translucence of real teeth with the ability to be accurately shade matched. These aspects make our Indianapolis same-day crowns and bridges ideal when restoring both front and back teeth.
Emergency Care within the Same Day
Same-day dental care is also ideal for those patients who have experienced damage to an existing crown. If your original crown was fabricated in our office, we can use the digital impressions we have on file to begin crafting your crown before you ever arrive at our office.
