Waiting for a dental restoration to be made can be a long and frustrating process. However, your dentist in Gaithersburg, Maryland same day crownseliminates that problem by offering same-day crowns at Kenneth Woo, DDS and Associates. If you're in need of a crown after a root canal or other dental procedure, you'll be interested to learn how Dr. Kenneth Woo, Dr. Edmond Woo, and Dr. Ho Kai Wang make the preparation and placement a streamlined, one day process!

How are same day crowns made?

Your Gaithersburg dentist uses CEREC technology to make crowns right in our office. CEREC stands for Chairside Economic Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, which essentially means that instead of waiting for your crown measurements to be taken by your dentist, sent and processed by a dental lab, and the final product mailed back to your dentist's office, you can have a crown on the same day you visit for your procedure! We use a revolutionary machine that uses digital images of your mouth and 3D printing technology to carve a crown out of porcelain. The result is a lifelike, durable, and accurately-fitted crown that your Gaithersburg dentist can place immediately.

What are the benefits of same day crowns?

As we mentioned before, there's no need to wait for your permanent crown to be made in a remote dental laboratory with CEREC. You don't need to take multiple days off of work in order to have your measurements taken and your crown placed. Same day crowns also cut out the need to wear temporary restorations. Crowns made with CEREC technology are also shown to be accurately made due to the digital specs it uses to create the crown.

If you are in need of a dental restoration, CEREC can make a huge difference for you! Contact Kenneth Woo, DDS and Associates, in Gaithersburg, MD to schedule your appointment today!
