Dental Crowns in Just One Day
Your teeth are unique in many ways, particularly in their size, shape, and appearance. Therefore, when restoring a tooth, accuracy and precision are paramount to creating a restoration that looks, feels, and functions just like your healthy, natural teeth. Dental crowns are designed with those needs in mind; each restoration is custom-made to mimic the dimensions of your tooth, then placed over the tooth to restore its function and appearance. At Bailey Dental Care, we utilize advanced CAD/CAM technology, in the form of E4D, which allows us to prepare your tooth, measure it, create your crown, and permanently place it, all in just a single visit.
How a Same-Day Crown Works
Traditionally, dental crowns are crafted by hand in a trusted laboratory based on measurements and molds that your dentist takes of your teeth. After your initial visit, you may have to wait several weeks for the crown to be crafted and sent back to your dentist before returning to have the restoration bonded in place. With a same-day crown, however, the entire process is streamlined and digitized so that we can complete the procedure in just one day. E4D’s imaging technology produces precise measurements of your teeth without the need for a mold, and the measurements are sent to an on-site milling machine. The machine automatically crafts your crown from a block of customized porcelain so you can leave your appointment with your lifelike restoration already in place.
