The Old Crowns Process
The common practice ever since the world knew about getting synthetic crowns requires for a visit or 2 in a dental facility and a waiting period of1-2 weeks for the crown to be available and fitted. It’s a big pain and hassle to patients especially those who are working. Who would like to have their teeth removed and not have their crowns readily available? What if the damaged tooth is the front tooth? Would you want to go around to the office looking like a disheveled person with a missing tooth?
The New Same Day Crowns Process
Through research, dentists claim that with digital technology advancing in the dental field, crowns can be available to the patient while waiting in the doctor’s office. Yes, you heard that right, dentists can now produce your crowns the same day you had your damaged tooth extracted.
How It Works
The dental office you need to visit should have the system that makes these same day crowns available. This system will have to be an investment on the dentist’s part which is about $100,000-$200,000. Yes, it’s fairly expensive but this system includes a computer that takes digital image of your tooth and help design the crown that will replace it. This system also has a milling machine needed to complete the task. This system is also known as CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics)
You can have your crown in ONE visit!
Gendler Dental Center has this newest technology to cater to your dental needs. How do we exactly do it?
- Our special system will take a photo of your tooth and prepare it for a crown.
- The computer (which is part of the system) will then create a model of your tooth through the photo that was taken.
- The same system will design your crown.
- And of course, the same system will precisely manufacture the crown so you can have it the same day.
What does this mean to you?
This is a win-win situation for both the patient and the dentist. With this new technology, your productivity won’t be severely affected as you can return to your office the next day without a hint of a damaged tooth extracted. This can also mean more patients can be accommodated by the dentist due to the one-day-fix it offers.
