Same Day Crowns
Serving Highlands Ranch & Surrounding Areas
Have you been told by a dentist that you need a crown but are not sure what it is or why you need it? A dental crown is a device which covers a tooth. Its function is to strengthen a decayed tooth, repair a broken tooth, or improve the cosmetic appearance of a tooth.
If you have broken, decayed, or otherwise damaged teeth, a crown may be the best option for you. Similar to both a filling and a veneer, the crown can both correct decay and cover damage to improve your smile and dental health.
At Willow Creek Dental, we offer our patients same-day crowns using the latest technology with CEREC®. Our CEREC® machine allows us to take a digital scan of the tooth and it then sends it electronically to our milling unit to make the crown right in our office. The all-porcelain crown is then custom stained to match your other teeth.
The entire procedure takes about two hours and while you are waiting for your crown to be made, you can relax and watch a movie, browse the Internet with our free WiFi, read a magazine or listen to music. Once your permanent crown is placed, there is no need to come back for another appointment!
