Our teeth may become damaged, or develop serious problems, such as decay or infection. In order to stop discomfort and restore the health of smiles in Riverside, MO, we may suggest a dental crown. Instead of requiring two to three visits to complete, we use E4D technology to create and place them in one visit. In today’s blog, let’s take a closer look at our same day dental crowns.

The Same Day Placement Process

First, we need to prepare the tooth receiving the crown, which means removing a small segment of outer tooth structure. We then take detailed digital impressions of the tooth with an intraoral camera. The images will be used to create a 3D model of the tooth, allowing the dentist to design the restoration. We upload the information into the E4D milling machine, which then creates the crown from a block of ceramic. After fabrication, we will check the fit and if needed, make a few adjustments. Finally, we place the crown with a bonding agent, offering you a restored tooth in just one sitting. No need for a temporary or multiple visits!

The Lifelike Appearance of Your Smile

We take steps to ensure the newly repaired tooth looks natural. We use ceramic because the material can be shaded to match the surrounding teeth. The material also mimics the translucent appearance of tooth enamel and contains stain-resistant properties. Ceramic is also strong, able to withstand serious bite forces and pressures. We want your crown to blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile! We may employ the same material to create inlays, onlays, or even our cosmetic porcelain veneers.

When We Prescribe Restorations

When do we prescribe one for our patients? We may suggest a same day crown to repair cracked, chipped, or broken teeth. They also help lengthen worn down teeth and reshape malformed teeth. Placement addresses permanent discoloration and issues with the tooth’s surface, such as pits or grooves. We’ve also employed them to help with tooth replacement, anchoring a custom-made dental bridge in place or even providing a natural looking restoration for a single tooth dental implant. As you can see, our custom restorations offer a host of cosmetic and restorative repair options. If you have any questions about creating a restoration in a single visit, or if you have a tooth in need of treatment, then contact our team today.
