Now you can get a dental crown in just one visit.
Need to get a dental crown to restore a damaged tooth? If so, you’ve come to the right place. Our downtown Atlanta, GA, dentist Dr. Thomas Kauffman uses the latest CEREC technology to be able to design, create and place crowns in just a single visit.
How does a same day crown work?
CEREC, which stands for chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics, is a special dental technology that utilizes CAD/CAM so our Atlanta, GA, restorative dentist can create a dental crown right here in our dental office without ever having to turn to an outside dental lab for help.
First, our dentist will take digital measurements of your damaged tooth or teeth. The images we capture of your tooth will be uploaded onto the computer where they will be turned into 3D images. This special computer software will help us map out the size, shape and fit of the crown based on measurements taken of your tooth to ensure a perfect fit.
Then we will choose a porcelain block that will most closely match the shade of your teeth. The block will be placed into the milling station where it will chisel out the crown in a matter of minutes. Once the crown has been made we will check the fit before cementing it into place.

You will get a new and improved smile in just one trip to our office. While it can take anywhere from 1.5-2 hours to make and place your crown, the process from start to finish occurs in a single appointment. Time is precious and getting same day crowns can certainly save you time.
