One of the things we can do to give back your smile is create a crown, a tooth-shaped cap we place over the damaged area. For either cosmetic or functional purposes, crowns are a resilient, and until now, time-consuming procedure. The process starts as before, numbing the area in the mouth and using a drill to shape the tooth for the crown. But with our new technology, instead of making an impression of the tooth, we use a small camera to create a 3D image of the drilled tooth and a computer program to build an image of what the tooth will look like with the crown. If same day crowns are an option for you, we will take digital impressions of your tooth, then mill, fabricate and place the crown for you, during your appointment, with no additional visits or temporary restoration required.
Being able to walk out and get back to your life quickly, with no follow up appointments is just one of the benefits from a same-day crown. Other benefits of this technology include, no sticky impressions, no metal, no temporary restoration period, and a natural looking, durable porcelain crown with a minimally invasive procedure.
