What Are Same-Day Crowns?

Traditionally, dental restorations required at least two dentist visits since physical dental impressions were made and shipped to a dental laboratory. At River Park Dental and Esthetics, we are pleased to offer same-day crowns by using computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) technology to make your restoration at our office as you wait. Dr. Phing Saurer uses this advanced system to generate customized bridges, crowns, onlays, and inlays. This revolutionary option enables you to bypass the hassle and time of physical dental impressions and temporary covers. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Saurer in Dublin, OH to find out more about same-day restorations.
