Rebuild Your Dental Health Without the Wait

When dealing with dental issues, you want them solved quickly. Chipped, cracked, and broken teeth can leave you in constant pain, making it hard to eat comfortably. Missing and damaged teeth can steal your confidence and compromise the function of your smile. Dental crowns and dental bridges are tried-and-true treatments for many tooth problems that can’t be repaired with fillings.

However, the traditional approach to these treatments can take several days or weeks while your models are transported back and forth so a dental lab can fabricate your restorations. Fortunately, today’s state-of-the-art milling technology means you can leave our offices with your permanent dental crown or bridge in just one visit. Dr. Mike McKenzie has years of experience crafting premium quality same-day dental bridges and crowns in Hannibal, MO.

Are Same-Day Dental Crowns Right for You?

A dental crown, or a tooth cap, completely covers a tooth in strong, durable material. Crowns can help hold together the parts of a fractured tooth and repair deep decay that can’t be treated with a normal filling. Crowns also stabilize teeth after root canal treatment which can become brittle, weak, or discolored.

Dental bridges replace missing teeth with a prosthetic fused to two surrounding crowns, using your healthy natural teeth as an anchor. Both crowns and bridges can restore your dental health with natural-looking restorations that will enhance the appearance of your smile for years to come. With CEREC, you can start enjoying the health and beauty of your restorations the same day as your initial treatment.
