New Crowns in a Single Visit
Almost every year, dental technology comes up with advancements that make dentistry faster, easier or more comfortable, and the results longer-lasting. That’s certainly the case with our same-day crowns.
How Same-Day Crowns Work
Using a new system called the E4D CAD/CAM System, we use a scanner to record the exact shape of a tooth that’s been prepared for a crown and the surrounding area. This information is then sent to a computerized design system where we plan the shape and exact color of your new crown.
Almost before you know it, a milling unit in our office carves your all-ceramic crown. We ensure it’s a perfect fit and then cement it in place. You’re on your way!
Advantages of Same-Day Crowns
- There’s no waiting for a lab to complete your crown
- No gooey impression trays to bite into
- No temporary crowns that need to be worn for weeks
- No second visit needed
For a tooth that’s been cracked, chipped, fractured or injured, a same-day crown offers a lasting and beautiful solution in a flash!
