What Is So Great About Single Visit Dental Crowns?

In a normal dental practice, getting dental crowns is a long and often an uncomfortable process that can take a number of weeks to finish. However, our practice uses same day crown technology, which enables us to scan, design, and mill gorgeous tooth-colored crowns in one day.

Picture coming into our dental office to receive a crown and walking out the same day with a strong, durable, and visually pleasing crown already in place. Call us today to learn more!

The Single Visit Crown Process

During your appointment, you and your dentist will talk about the details of the treatment and your dentist will address any concerns you may have. Your dentist will then use a thin layer of reflective powder onto your tooth and will use a special 3D imaging camera to take a photo of your tooth. Using the brand-new software, your restoration will be created according to your tooth's appropriate form and function.

Then, the mill will use diamond burs to develop your restoration out of a piece of ceramic. Finally, the ceramic restoration is bonded to your tooth using cutting edge adhesive dentistry.

Dental Crowns

A crown (or cap) is a covering that covers the entire tooth surface restoring it to its initial sizes and shape. A crown protects and strengthens the tooth structure providing the tooth a longer life span than it would have if brought back by fillings or other types of restorations.

Crowns are full coverage restorations that are utilized to cover a tooth that is most likely to break, or is too broken down to be brought back with a filling. They are most typically done after root canal treatments, or when a large filling breaks. The bigger the hole made by a cavity that has to be treated, the more likely a crown will be required. Even after a filling is put in a huge cavity, a tooth is more likely to break. Keep in mind that the jaw muscles are the strongest in the body. Teeth undergo incredible pressures. Crowns ride over the weakened tooth, providing strength and protecting the tooth against damage. A damaged or split tooth is a far more serious matter and a lot more hard to treat. Crowns prevent this, along with making for a good smile.

It takes 2 visits to bring back a tooth with a crown. In the first appointment any decay is removed from the tooth and it is formed to accept the crown. Then an impression is made of the tooth for use in fabricating a crown. In between the two visits the crown is made, usually of high-strength porcelain over gold alloy, all ceramic material, or gold. A temporary crown is worn during this time. In the second visit this short-term crown is removed. Then the {permanent crown is adjusted as needed then cemented in place.

Exactly What Does Getting A Crown Involve?

A crown treatment typically requires two appointments. Your first visit will consist of taking impressions that will be used to create your custom-made crown. A mold will also be utilized to produce a temporary crown which will stay on your tooth for approximately 2 weeks up until your new crown is fabricated by a dental laboratory.

While the tooth is numb, the dental practitioner will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and shaping the surface area to effectively fit the crown. When these details are accomplished, your short-term crown will be positioned with short-term cement and your bite will be checked to guarantee you are biting properly.

At your second visit your short-term crown will be removed, the tooth will be cleaned, and your new crown will be carefully positioned to make sure the spacing and bite are precise.

You will be given care instructions and encouraged to have routine dental visits to check your crown. As always, proper oral hygiene will help extend the life of your brand-new crown.
