Now it’s possible to get a dental crown in one visit to our Vermillion, SD, dental practice.

You didn’t read that wrong. You absolutely can have a dental crown made and placed in the very same day when you turn to our Vermillion, SD, family dentists Drs. Matthew & Richard Knutson and Dr. Brandon Jensen. CEREC, which stands for chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramic, is a unique and state-of-the-art technology that allows our dental team to be able to create and place permanent crowns in one easy appointment. Here are just some of the top benefits of getting same day crowns,

No more temporary crowns!

Traditional dental crowns require us to send impressions of your smile to an outside dental lab, where it can take up to four weeks to make your crown. Thanks to CEREC technology, we can remove the middleman and simply bring all this technology in-house so our dental team can now make your crowns, veneers and onlays/inlays. Since we can make and place your CEREC crown in just one appointment, you no longer need to wear a flimsy, awkward temporary crown for weeks.

Bye, bye messy impressions

Another benefit to having this incredible technology is that we can also capture amazingly precise measurements of your teeth using digital technology rather than those messy impressions that you may remember from the past. Traditional impressions can be uncomfortable, but CEREC crowns are ideal for all patients, even those with sensitive gag reflexes.

Save yourself time

The goal of our dental team is to make sure that you get the dental care you need as quickly and efficiently as possible. That means keeping up with the latest technology, which provides us with more effective solutions to your dental problems. Plus, we know you’re busy and don’t have time to keep coming back into our office every week just to get a crown. Luckily, CEREC technology significantly cuts down your treatment plan and allows you to get back to your daily routine even faster.

Save a damaged tooth

The purpose of a dental crown is to cover and protect a weak or damaged tooth. The crown will restore strength and durability back into the tooth. Same day crowns ensure that our Vermillion, SD, dentists are able to provide you with a strong, high-quality dental crown that is built to last up to 15 years with the proper care. When you are dealing with a damaged tooth it’s comforting to know that you can fix this dental problem in just one visit at our dentist’s office.
