Same day crowns represents the latest in dental science and technology and is offered by offices that are equipped and trained to give you these amazing benefits. Our Family and Cosmetic Dentistry of the Rockies practice is one of the few in the area that is prepared to offer you this amazing service. The traditional process of receiving a dental crown was more time-consuming, less customized, less comfortable, more invasive and not as durable as current methods. Same day dentistry incorporates an E4D Dentist System so you can enjoy benefits not available from conventional treatment. Learn how you can benefit from same day crowns today!
Like the name suggests, same day dentistry procedures and systems are those that let you get a dental restoration with just one appointment. Instead of conventional treatments that require two or more visits to complete a restoration (crown or veneer) same day dentistry allows you to complete the treatment in one appointment with advanced dental technology.
Same day dentistry means that you can have your crown made and placed in the same appointment, unlike with traditional crowns that you have to wait weeks for. After your digital images and impression are gathered, your scanned information is then transferred to the design center in our office where a 3D model of your tooth is created chairside. Our sophisticated milling machine creates your crown in just minutes from a single piece of porcelain. Drs. Willey and Murri will design and customize your restoration to fit your unique characteristics, after which it is created in a milling unit right in the our dental office while you wait, eliminating the need for a second visit for placement. Your restorations will look and feel completely natural.
The advanced laser technology provides your Family and Cosmetic Dentistry of the Rockies dentist the ability to gather extremely accurate results that give you a more precise fit for your particular mouth shape and needs.
The technology involved in same day dentistry allows a member of our team to take an impression of your mouth digitally so you can forego the traditional method that included messy dental impression materials and trays.
The process for receiving your same day crown is simple and easy with the comfort of new, advanced technology. The procedure involves the insertion of a comfortable oral camera into your mouth to take 3-D digital images of your tooth. The E4D system was designed to take fast, accurate in-house digital impressions with advanced laser-scanning technology. This gives your dentist clean, fast, digital scans in just a few minutes from a series of photographic images taken in your mouth. These images are used to digitally design your crown right in our office.
Traditional crowns take weeks to return from the lab after an appointment where impressions are made of your mouth. This would require that you wear a temporary tooth (or teeth) until your crown was done and back from the lab. Sometimes crowns would return from the lab and not fit appropriately, because of how they were milled, requiring that the patient wait even longer and face the complications that temporary teeth can bring. With same day crowns, the technology produces digital scans that offer a much more accurate and precise picture of what your mouth needs,from the very beginning, and results in crowns that rarely need adjusting. On the rare occasion that adjusting is needed, it can be done right away in our office instead of being sent out to a lab and necessitating another visit.
