Do you have a broken tooth, severe decay, or some other cosmetic concerns but find yourself too busy to make two dental visits? Garden Dental & Orthodontics provides the people Spruce Grove Alberta and the surrounding Stony Plain and Parkland County areas with a quick restoration in a single visit with natural-looking all-ceramic or all-porcelain same day crowns.
We have state-of-the-art imaging and on-site technology that enables us to create custom dental crowns in your first office visit, so you don’t have to rely on a temporary crown accompanied with multiple office visits for your permanent crowns.
Technology perfected over the last couple of decades has given us the tools to prepare and place same day dental crowns in your first appointment.
Previously, patients had to bear with the downsides of conventional crowns, which include:
Today, we take advantage of advanced dental technology referred to Computer Aided Design or Computer Aided Manufacturing – CAD/CAM to fabricate laboratory-grade restorations such as dental crowns in a matter of minutes.
It is an amazing technology considering how lengthy and troublesome conventional crowns can be, and best of all, numerous studies have indicated that CAD/CAM-based dental restorations are just as successful as those made with conventional techniques and materials. So, same day crowns:
The process of placing a crown starts out the same way regardless of whether it is a traditional or chairside crown, with “preparation” of the damaged tooth. During preparation, we will remove any decay on your tooth and use a drill to shape the tooth so that it fits perfectly inside the crown. Beyond this point, there are no other similarities.
If you were receiving a traditional crown, we would then take an impression of your teeth using a putty-like substance and use it to create a model for creating your crown. But with one-day crowns, we will simply dust some reflective powder on your teeth and then use a small scanning wand connected to a PC to take digital pictures inside your mouth.
In a matter of seconds, the PC will generate a very accurate 3D model of your tooth, and we can design your crown immediately while you wait.
When the design is complete, we will choose a dental ceramic material in the shade that closely matches your natural teeth, transmit the computer digital design to a milling machine, and watch it carve your custom crown from the ceramic block in five minutes or so.
After we verify the crown and stain and glaze it for aesthetic enhancement, we shall bond it to your tooth, and you’re good to go.
Our same-day crowns are durable and resistant to stains. So, with proper care of your crown, your restoration should last up to 15 years. For more information, contact the Garden Dental & Orthodontics team today!
