Same-Day Crowns

CREATING CUSTOM DESIGNED SAME-DAY CROWNS
WITH CEREC ® TECHNOLOGY
At Mona Vale Dental, we are excited to offer same-day crowns with our advanced CEREC technology, patients with damaged or decayed teeth can have a crown designed, crafted and placed in a single dental visit.

A TRUSTED AND CONVENIENT TREATMENT
Patients have relied on dental crowns to repair compromised teeth, for years. A dental crown (also known as a ‘cap’) completely covers the tooth after the necessary preparation is completed to resolve structural issues. With the use of our modern dental techniques and equipment we fabricate crowns that feel and look natural. All of our dental crowns are custom fabricated to restore the functional and aesthetic features of your teeth. All this is done in a single visit for most cases. This eliminates the need for you to visit the practice multiple times, spread out over weeks, while an external laboratory fabricates the crown, and you have to wear a temporary crown. With our advanced CEREC technology, your crown is made and placed in a single visit.

THE SAME-DAY CROWN PROCESS

  1. Your dentist will first take digital impressions of your treated teeth. This method requires no messy, uncomfortable putty, and is especially beneficial for those who have a gag reflex.
  2. The digital images will then be directly transferred into a chairside computer which designs the new tooth and guides a milling machine to make your crown.
  3. During the milling process you can relax in our waiting room. In all the entire process takes about an hour. When the crown is complete, your dentist can make some fine-tuned adjustments to the crown to ensure an optimal fit.
  4. Finally, the crown will be securely attached to your tooth with a special bonding agent. There’s no need for temporary crowns or additional appointments.

THE ADVANTAGES OF SAME-DAY CROWNS
Same-day CEREC crowns offer significant benefits:

  • Less discomfort and fewer appointments. Since CEREC restorations only take a few minutes to be created, there is no need for a second appointment, or multiple injections of anesthesia and you won’t need to wear a temporary crown.
  • Strong, durable CEREC crowns can last for years, with proper care. One of the many benefits of the CEREC system is that each restoration is milled from a single, solid block of porcelain, making it resistant to cracks and fissures. The traditional method of pressing and layering to create crowns lacks the strength and durability of the CEREC method.
  • CEREC crowns look natural, they are made from ceramic materials that mimic nature with its opalescence and transparency, much like the natural prisms in tooth enamel. Each ceramic block is offered in a range of 17 different shades. We then carefully custom-tint and glaze your restoration to match your natural teeth precisely.
  • With CEREC, we can scan your mouth digitally, eliminating the need for foul-tasting, messy impression materials.
  • Biocompatible, metal-free materials. CEREC restorations are made of ceramic porcelain that is compatible with your body. Unlike restorations that use metal, there are no mercury or gray lines at the base of the tooth near the gum line.
  • Faster recovery time with less tooth sensitivity. CEREC restorations can be used to restore a tooth that has undergone a procedure, such as Root Canal Therapy. Restoring a tooth immediately after a treatment provides protection, resulting in a lower risk of fracture of the tooth and prevention of further infection.

What Our Customers Say

I took Alistair's advice and Hayley & Alistair made me up a SomnoBrux to address my Bruxism. Wish I had taken his advice a long time ago - I found the guard really easy to sleep with and am now sleeping so much better and not waking up with a saw jaw and a headache every morning. Can't thank you enough Mona Vale Dental !read more

The team at Mona Vale Dental is not just top notch but world class. Dr. Graham has made sure he's always a master of the latest techniques. The fact that crowns and overlays can be done in a single session (without waiting to send away for molds, etc) is awesome. The quality of the work is always high. I personally have a challenging medical background and the Mona Vale Dental team is phenomenal at making sure all the specifics of my case are considered. And, on top of this, they're simply a really friendly bunch. Couldn't recommend them any more!read more

Our company designed and built the new practice environment for Dr Alistair Graham and I must say that the entire team at Mona Vale Dental were a real pleasure to work with from start to finish. They were and still are wonderful clients and people. His team are so caring and whilst we were shooting a video on location for a whole day, I saw first hand how the team greeted and looked after their patients. Wow was I impressed. The place looks amazing too and I recommend anyone in the local area to make an appointment and go and feel what it is like to be treated by such great professionals in an amazing space. We wish you all the best Dr Graham and team in your new practice.read more
