Same Day Crowns

Same day crown technology plays an important role in our practice. This remarkable innovation in chair side dentistry provides us the tools to develop, produce, and position crowns, inlays and onlays in a single visit.

The Same Day Crown Difference

The standard approach to a crown or inlay and onlay often needed a return appointment after the client waited (with a short-term restoration in the tooth) for about two weeks while the restoration was manufactured in a different lab. Same day crown CAD/CAM innovation eliminates the wait!

How Do Same Day Crowns Work?

Same day crowns utilize a special camera to take an accurate photo of the broken tooth. This optical impression is transferred and shown on a color computer screen, where the dental practitioner utilizes CAD (computer-aided design) software to develop the restoration.

Then CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) takes over and automatically mills the restoration while the patient waits. Finally, the brand-new restoration is bonded in place.

The whole procedure takes about one hour, and there are no annoying temporaries or 2nd appointment needed!

Proven Technology

With twenty years of scientific research and more than 20 million restorations carried out worldwide, same day crowns have actually shown to be a an efficient, safe and hassle-free innovation that we are delighted to provide to our clients.

Today's Topic Is:

Dental Crowns

A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and reinforces the tooth structure providing the tooth a longer life span than it would have if restored by fillings or other kinds of restorations.

Crowns are full coverage restorations that are used to cover a tooth that is likely to break, or is too broken down to be restored with a filling. They are most commonly done after root canal treatments, or when a huge filling breaks. The larger 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 large cavity, a tooth is most likely to break. Remember that the jaw muscles are the strongest in the human body. Teeth undergo remarkable pressures. Crowns ride over the weakened tooth, offering strength and securing the tooth against damage. A broken or split tooth is a much more serious matter and much more difficult to treat. Crowns prevent this, as well as producing a nice smile.

It takes two visits to bring back a tooth with a crown. In the very first appointment any decay is eliminated 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, normally of high-strength porcelain over gold alloy, all ceramic product, or gold. A temporary crown is used throughout this time. In the second visit this short-term crown is removed. Then the {permanent crown is adjusted as needed then cemented in place.

What Does Getting A Crown Involve?

A crown procedure typically needs 2 visits. Your first appointment will include taking impressions that will be used to produce your customized crown. A mold will also be utilized to create a short-term crown which will stay on your tooth for approximately 2 weeks till your new crown is produced by a dental lab.

While the tooth is numb, the dentist will prepare the tooth by eliminating any decay and shaping the surface area to effectively fit the crown. Once these details are accomplished, your short-term crown will be placed with temporary cement and your bite will be examined to ensure you are biting properly.

At your second appointment your temporary crown will be removed, the tooth will be cleaned, and your brand-new crown will be thoroughly positioned to ensure the spacing and bite are accurate.

You will be given care directions and encouraged to have regular dental check ups to examine your crown. As always, correct oral hygiene will help extend the life of your brand-new crown.
