Restore Your Smile with Convenient Same-Day Crowns
For patients who require a dental crown to protect and strengthen a compromised tooth, or replace a missing tooth, we offer convenient same-day restorations at our Pensacola, FL, practice. At Taylor Dental, we know your time is valuable, which is why we have incorporated advanced CEREC technology into our treatment plans. This innovative system enables us to design a custom, high quality crown, and precisely manufacture it in under one hour. To best serve our patients, Dr. Andrew Taylor and his team can also place same-day-crowns in a single office visit to immediately restore the function and beauty of your smile.
What Is a Dental Crown?
A crown is a dental prosthetic that encapsulates the entire visible tooth structure, restoring the strength and structural integrity of a damaged tooth. We may place a dental crown after root canal therapy, or recommend an implant-supported crown in combination with a dental implant after tooth loss.
Design and Fabrication
Traditionally, at least two office visits were required for dental crown treatment. During the first visit, your dentist would take manual impressions, which would then be used to fabricate your dental crown at a laboratory over a period of two weeks. In the interim, patients would need to wear a temporary crown to assist with dental function. Now, thanks to CEREC technology, patients can enjoy a fully restored smile in a single visit, without the need for temporary restorations.
CEREC incorporates CAD/CAM (computer aided design and computer aided manufacturing) technology, which enables us to take 3-D scans of your smile. As a result, you do not have to undergo traditional, manual impressions. These images can then be used to construct your custom restoration in-office. After creating a digital mold of your dental crown, your doctor can send the precise measurements and shade information to our on-site milling machine. This tool uses metal-free, durable materials to craft your crown in less than one hour. Once your restoration is finished, we can ensure proper fit and aesthetics before securing your crown in place.

"Everyone that I interacted with was professional and friendly. My dental hygienist, Holly, did an exceptional job cleaning my teeth. She was proficient and kept me as comfortable as possible. The office is very clean, and I just love the heated massage chairs as well as the TV, headphones, and sunglasses provided. Genius!"Donna S.
