Rebuild Your Smile and Confidence with Same-day Porcelain Crowns

Dental crowns are one of the most common solutions for rebuilding damaged smiles. Dental crowns provide remarkable reinforcement to a compromised tooth, allowing it to function optimally for many years. Unfortunately, placing traditional crowns involves several trips to a dentist spanning weeks.

Don’t put off necessary dental work because of lengthy treatment time. Wilmington Smiles recognizes how valuable your time is. Dr. Gregory Garrett and the team are pleased to offer same-day dental crowns with cutting-edge technology that restores your smile in one visit! 

Why you may need a dental crown

A dental crown is a custom-fitted, tooth-shaped appliance placed over the tooth to improve its appearance and structure. Dental crowns are beautiful restorations, and your dentist may recommend them to: 

  • Cover a dental implant
  • Reinforce a tooth after a root canal
  • Strengthen a severely weakened tooth
  • Secure a dental bridge in place
  • Aesthetically improve a misshapen or discolored tooth

Don’t settle for a smile you aren’t proud to show off. Dental crowns in Wilmington, North Carolina, present a viable option for rebuilding your smile. Once placed on your tooth, a dental crown restores your smile to its pre-damage state, if not better!

All about same-day dental crowns

Traditionally, dental crowns are often placed in 2-3 appointments. Thanks to CEREC technology, we can restore your smile with dental crowns in a single visit. CEREC crowns are placed in one appointment because all the processes are done in-house, from planning to placement. 

Once your tooth is prepared, we design your crown with state-of-the-art CAD/CAM technology. Once the crown design is approved, the image is sent to an in-house milling machine that fabricates your crown within 15-20 minutes from a ceramic block.

Once your crown is ready, we make a few adjustments because CEREC restorations are created with ultimate precision. Finally, we use dental cement to bond your crown to your tooth. Now, you are ready to show off your new smile!
