Same Day Dental Crowns
A Caring Dental Group has invested in state of the art technology that allows us to complete most of our crown treatments in just one day. Traditional crowns require at least two, sometimes three visits to complete. Not anymore! Our beautiful, all ceramic restorations are made right here in our office while you wait.
How Does it Work?
First, we prepare your tooth, removing all decay or damaged enamel that may need to be replaced. Then, instead of taking a gooey impression, we are able to scan the surface of your teeth with a 3D virtual impression tool.
Most visits would stop here, and have you return back in 2 weeks for the crown to be made at an off site lab, and then tried in once it arrives back at our office. However, our dentists combine the entire process into a single appointment.
The data taken with our scanner is then transferred into a piece of milling equipment in our in-house lab. We select a shade of ceramic that closely resembles the color of your natural teeth. Then, the milling machine crafts the porcelain to the precise shape and contour necessary as you sit back and relax.
Once it’s ready, we will try the same day crown into your mouth to ensure optimal fit and comfort. Then, it is permanently bonded into place. Because there is no human error involved, these treatments have a very high success rate!
There are some situations where we may recommend a different type of crown, depending on your smile’s needs. We’re happy to discuss the advantages of each type of treatment during your consultation.
If you’ve recently had a root canal, a large cavity, or a broken filling – then you may need a crown to save your tooth. Call our office today to book an exam.
