same-day dental crownsYour Independence, MO, dentist believes in offering advanced treatment options for our patients. With a digital approach to dentistry, we can even repair smiles with CAD/CAM technology, allowing our team to create and place a crown in the same visit. In today’s blog, we’re going to look at how we design and craft a restoration in a single sitting.

When Do People Need Restorations?

A crown covers the visible parts of each tooth, everything above the gum line. Which means we employ them to correct a number of both restorative and cosmetic concerns. For example, we offer repair for advanced cavities or treat infections as the final step in a root canal. If you have a cracked, chipped, or broken tooth, we often restore them with a crown. Placement lengthens worn down teeth and corrects issues with the shape and color of them as well. If you have lost one or more natural teeth. We can help by anchoring a dental bridge in place or restoring a single tooth dental implant.

Same-Day Crown Creation

To create them, we start by making room. We remove structure from the tooth and then take a series of detailed digital images. We combine the images to create a 3D model. You no longer have to bite down on a mold filled with sticky material, the impression process is completely digital. We upload the model into the onsite milling machine, which crafts the crown from a block of ceramic. Our team also takes steps to shade the finished product and ensure it blends with the rest of your smile seamlessly.

Placement and Aftercare

Once we create the crown, we check the fit, make any necessary adjustments, and place it with a powerful bonding agent. The entire process only takes one visit to complete, so you leave with a completely restored smile. You don’t have the wear a temporary or undergo two or more visits, which means no further strain on an already hectic schedule. If you have any questions about designing and 3D printing your restorations, or if you have a tooth in need of repair, then please contact our team today to learn more. We want to help you continue to enjoy optimal oral health and avoid uncomfortable symptoms related to injury or poor oral health.
