Why Select Single Visit Crowns?

It is extremely important for a person to have a strong and healthy set of teeth. However, there are some cases where dental cavity formation is inevitable. It is frequently caused by the person's diet, habits and hygiene. Cavities that are not fixed early might cause substantial damage to the tooth's enamel which may need a dental crown to restore its natural appearance and function.

A dental crown is a cap formed like a tooth which is used to cover the tooth that has actually undergone extensive damage caused by dental cavities. Getting it usually needs two dental appointments. During the very first visit, your damaged tooth is cleaned up and the decayed part is eliminated. The dental practitioner will then get the impression of your tooth that needed the crown and will send it to a dental laboratory where standard dental crowns were made. It could be made from a metal, ceramic or porcelain material. Only during the second visit, your custom-fitted dental crown is cemented to your broken tooth.

With the advancement in dental innovation, the process of getting and wearing a dental crown has actually been made readily available. Dentists use the new technology in making inlays/onlays, crowns and veneers. After your damaged tooth is prepared, they will use an intraoral camera that will take the picture of your broken tooth and have it uploaded to a computer. It will use a computer-aided design in taking the digital impression of your teeth and the impression is transmitted to the computer-aided manufacturing machine which will mill a color-matched ceramic block to your same day crowns. Choosing a same day crown over a traditional dental crown has its benefits and disadvantages.

Ultrasonic Tooth Cleaning

We use ultrasonic scalers for most adult dental cleanings. These devices utilize ultrasonic vibrations to help breakdown the plaque and calculus on the teeth that trigger gingivitis and gum disease. The ultrasonic cleaners produce tiny bubbles that implode on the surface of the tooth, killing microbes and removing plaque and tartar in the process. Our instruments use a thin tip to better navigate in the gum pockets to help maintain optimal gingival health.


  • The procedure only uses water, no chemicals are used.

  • It can get rid of tartar buildup in hard-to-reach areas, with no damage to the tooth enamel.

  • Manual scaling often uses pressure for cleaning, while the vibration produced by the scaling tip of an ultrasonic scaler is barely perceptible. This makes ultrasonic cleaning suitable to those with sensitive teeth.

  • The cleaning process is quicker than manual scaling making your visit more comfy.


After your teeth have actually been cleaned with the ultrasonic cleaner, your teeth will be hand scaled to check for any residual deposits and after that polished.
