Same Day Crowns - A Smart Innovation

We aim to stay current with the multitude of technological advances that are occurring in dentistry. We are proud to have the same day crown technology in our office. It allows us to produce crowns and bigger restorations in our office. Same day crowns use the most sophisticated dental innovation, including 3D video imaging and CAD/CAM innovation. In layman's terms, it is a computer-designed restoration for your tooth. The entire treatment takes in between 1-2 hours and can be completed in one sitting.

Normally, a crown in the past would have required two visits. The very first appointment includes preparing the tooth, taking the mold, and fitting a short-term crown. During the second appointment, the short-term crown is replaced with the permanent one. With a same day crown, the whole treatment can be completed in simply one visit. We will use video imaging technology to tke a picture of the tooth and use CAD/CAM technology to develop the crown. This 3D design is wirelessly transmitted to a milling device that sculpts the restoration out of a vacuum formed ceramic block. We will then adhere the brand-new crown to your tooth. This removes the need to get a temporary along with a 2nd appointment.

Restorative dentistry procedures can be very important to the general health of your teeth and mouth. Please call our office and request a consultation.

Dental Crowns

A crown (or cap) is a covering that covers the whole tooth surface restoring it to its original sizes and shape. A crown protects and reinforces the tooth structure giving the tooth a longer life span than it would have if restored by fillings or other types of restorations.

Crowns are full coverage restorations that are used 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 frequently 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 needed. Even after a filling is put in a huge cavity, a tooth is most likely to break. Keep in mind that the jaw muscles are the strongest in the body. Teeth are subjected to incredible pressures. Crowns sit over the weakened tooth, providing strength and protecting the tooth against damage. A busted or split tooth is a much more serious matter and a lot more hard to treat. Crowns prevent this, in addition to producing a good smile.

It takes two visits to restore a tooth with a crown. In the very first visit any decay is removed from the tooth and it is shaped 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, typically of high-strength porcelain over gold alloy, all ceramic product, 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 procedure normally needs two appointments. Your very first visit will consist of taking impressions that will be used to create your customized crown. A mold will also be used to produce a short-term crown which will stay on your tooth for roughly two weeks up until your brand-new crown is made by a dental lab.

While the tooth is numb, the dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and shaping the surface to appropriately fit the crown. As soon as these details are achieved, your short-term crown will be put with short-term cement and your bite will be examined 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 thoroughly placed to guarantee the spacing and bite are precise.

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