One Visit Crowns

When you’ve got a damaged tooth that requires more than a filling, you’ll be relieved to know your Yuma dentist offers the latest in technology to make the process for dental crowns more efficient and effective than ever before. Our office invested in a CEREC milling machine, a device that uses CAD/CAM technology to help us plan for, create and place your metal-free dental crown in just one visit to The Yuma Dentist, Dr. Sam Carroll.

Dental Crowns: The Basics

A dental crown is a thin, tooth-shaped covering that surrounds a damaged tooth. The device can restore teeth that have been affected by some problems, including:

  • Severe decay
  • Broken teeth
  • Restoring dental implants for single tooth replacement
  • Strengthening a tooth after root canal therapy

Dental crowns can also be used to make cosmetic improvements in imperfect teeth. The appearance of misshapen, severely stained or oddly-textured teeth can significantly enhance with a ceramic or porcelain crown.

CEREC Makes One-Visit Crowns Possible

Traditionally, the treatment for dental crowns required at least two visits to the dentist, with a couple of weeks in between while the top created in a separate lab. A temporary device was worn during this waiting time. But with CEREC technology, your dental crown can be milled from a single block of non-metal material, right here in our office. That means your dentist can complete the entire treatment, from planning to final placement, in just one appointment, eliminating the need for a second visit and the use of a temporary device in the meantime.

In addition to the efficiency offered by CEREC one-visit crowns, the method may also give you a better-fitting device overall. Digital impressions taken with the Omnicam scanner are more accurate than is possible with the traditional, gooey way, improving treatment planning and likely resulting in a device that looks, fits and feels better than ever before.

Caring for Your CEREC Crown

Maintaining your CEREC crown isn’t much different from caring for your natural teeth. Keep your new tooth strong and the rest of your teeth healthy by brushing gently for two minutes, twice a day, flossing daily (concentrating on the area around the base of the crown) and visiting your dentist as recommended for checkups and cleanings.

Whether you need to restore the function of a weak or damaged back tooth, or if you’re looking to enhance the form of one of your front teeth, a dental crown may be just the solution you need. Sam Carroll, DMD, Your Yuma Dentist, takes care of your dental crowns or any other dental restorations in only one visit with CEREC technology.

Dr. Carroll has state-of-the-art equipment and can do it all. I was able to get my new crown replaced on the same day with only the one visit. I've been going there for years and never had to wait past my appointment time. The office staff are all friendly, helpful, efficient, prompt, and make you feel at home and more importantly, comfortable. Dr. Carroll remembers details from prior visits and always follows up on them. A real bonus for me is that he has a way with giving the shots to numb your mouth without it hurting! I'm very grateful for the excellent care I get from Dr. Carroll and his staff.

I had such a wonderful experiance at this office! Switching from another local dentist was the best decision I ever made. Shanel, the hygienist, was absolutely amazing and Dr. Carroll was incredibly down to earth and attentive to any questions or concerns. The whole staff is just awesome and I can't recommend this office enough!

I was terrified of the dentist from past bad experience. My daughter had a traumatic experience at a local dentist as well. We have both started seeing Dr. Carroll and have had the most comfortable, reassuring experience. They are kind, knowledgeable and patient!! Thank you Dr. Carroll and Staff!! Second visit - 2/4/16 - Deep Clean Procedure and a Wisdom tooth extraction - Again, I can't say enough about my visit. The staff from the moment you walk in the door are professional and friendly. My procedure was 99.5% pain free and the extraction was 100% pain free. I was given information every step of the way and was made to feel comfortable at all times. This is an office with compassion, caring and understanding. I highly recommend this practice. I can't say thank you enough for the positive experience and dental work. Thank you!!

I have had an excellent experience with Dr. Carroll over the past -I have been with him since he started practice in Yuma. He and his staff have always treated me professionally and respectfully. I say 'had' because I just moved out of state and now I hope to find a new dentist as skilled as Dr. Carroll. My last visit was a highlight for me. He gave me a brand new, much improved smile by replacing my top front six teeth with crowns made by him on site. The change is amazing and I say "thank you Dr. Carroll!"

Sam Carroll , DMD, is knowledgable about all the latest and most effective dental procedures and treatment to make you SMILE... I have seen a caring and gentle approach with the very young patients ( My Grandaughter) and the concern he had with my 90 year old Father. Very comfortable yet professional atmosphere at all times!
