At Greater Long Island Dental, we can create crowns in just one day for patients who need their prostheses immediately. Our in-office CEREC machine creates on-site restorations customized to match with each patient's natural teeth. Our same-day dental crowns are made from the highest-quality materials.
Crowns are indicated whenever there's been a large amount of tooth
structure that's been lost, whether it be to decay, to a fracture, if
there's been a crack in a tooth as a result of trauma. Typically, anybody
who's interested in maintaining their tooth for the rest of their life and
if there's been a lot of tooth loss, we'd pursue a crown to protect the
tooth and provide adequate support.
At Greater Long Island Dental, we've invested in CEREC technology. It's our
ability to use digital impressions to provide same day, single visit
The other restorative procedures we offer here in the office with CEREC are
we can do traditional fillings with CEREC where the computer actually mills
the filling out of a larger filling material. We can do inlays and onlays,
which are more conservative options to crowns. We always want to preserve
the integrity of our tooth structure, and we don't want to remove any tooth
structure that doesn't need to be removed.
We can perform all ceramic crowns with CEREC as well as porcelain veneers
and bridge work as well, all ceramic bridges.
The next step for anybody interested in any of our restorative procedures
would be a free consultation with our office where we can take a look and
see if you'd be a suitable candidate for this type of CEREC technology.
