Damaged, lost, and broken teeth make smiling and communication difficult. Besides the aesthetic, these dental issues also lead to further dental issues; it’s a cycle that does not end.

Fortunately, your dentist in Elk Grove Village, IL offers dental crowns, restorative therapy, and tooth replacement to give you a smile you can be proud of and a fresh start with your oral health.

CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns in Elk Grove Village, IL

Typically, you go to the dental office, endure gooey impression materials to measure you for a dental crown. Then you wait a week or two for that crown to arrive. You go back to the office for a fitting, and finally, you are all set.

In our dental office, we do things differently because your time matters. We believe your restoration should be completed as soon as possible.

CEREC same-day technology allows us to take digital and comfortable impressions without gooey materials. We use the digital results to fashion your crown in our on-site milling machine while you wait. Your dentist then makes all final adjustments, including shading your crown to match your teeth. Typically, this is done during a single office visit!

What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a cap that is shaped like a tooth. It goes over a damaged or broken tooth to restore function and aesthetics. It is often the only thing standing in the way of extraction, making it a crucial component of dentistry.

A dental crown can also hide tooth flaws and work to restore missing teeth through dental implant technology and in support of a dental bridge.
