Same-Day Dental Crowns & Bridges

Dental crowns and bridges are two of the most common treatments for replacing and restoring missing or damaged teeth. During your initial consultation at our Keene Family Dentistry, our experienced dentists will carefully examine your mouth to determine if these treatments are good options for you.

Same-Day Dental Crowns

Traditionally, getting a dental crown has required two appointments. However, with advancements in dental technology, we now offer same-day crowns. Using state-of-the-art CEREC technology, our dentists can create and place your crown in a single visit, saving you time and eliminating the need for multiple trips to our office.

When you receive a same-day crown, you can expect:

  1. Examination: Our dentists will thoroughly examine your teeth to ensure that a crown is the right treatment for you.
  2. Preparation: We will remove any weakened, decayed or broken tooth material to prepare your tooth for the crown.
  3. Digital Imaging: A digital picture of your mouth is captured, which is then converted into a 3D model.
  4. Design: Using the 3D model, we design your custom crown.
  5. Milling: Your crown is milled from a block of tooth-colored material right in our office.

In just a few minutes, your crown will be ready. Our dentists will then place it in your mouth, ensure it fits properly, bond it into place and polish it to complete your treatment. Same-day crowns are designed to restore the strength, functionality and appearance of teeth that have been damaged by decay, disease or injury.

Same-Day Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are replacements for missing teeth. When you lose a tooth, your remaining teeth can shift out of position, causing you to develop a bad bite and making it more difficult to chew and speak normally. A dental bridge will literally “bridge” the gap in your smile to keep your teeth in the correct position, maintain a healthy bite and give you back a beautiful smile.

Thanks to advances in dental technology, we now offer same-day dental bridges. Using the same technology that allows us to create same-day crowns, our dentists can design and place your dental bridge in a single visit, saving you time and eliminating the need for multiple appointments. The process for bridges is the same as for crowns, though your bridge will be anchored in place by crowns on the teeth adjacent to the gap or by dental implants.

In just a few minutes, your bridge will be ready. Our dentists will then place it in your mouth, ensure it fits properly and bond it into place to complete your treatment. Same-day bridges are designed to restore your ability to chew and speak effectively, maintain the shape of your face and prevent your remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
