Taking the time to visit a dentist for an aching tooth can be a big pain—and not just in the tooth! Finding a dental office that can solve your dental issues in quick, convenient way is normally a challenge. Your Dublin dentist at our Distinctive Smiles office makes getting a crown for a weak or damaged tooth much less stressful. We have the advanced technology to eliminate the two to three-visit process associated with getting a dental crown, not to mention the one to three weeks wait for your permanent crown to be made. Our dentists are excited to explain the swift process of getting a dental crown in our innovative office.
First, what is a dental crown?
Our advanced practice offers a great restoration option for patients interested in repairing the functionality of their smile. Same day crowns in Dublin are designed to completely cover or “cap” individual teeth. Crowns can also be attached to dental implants to create a lifelike tooth replacement. This process significantly improves the tooth’s health, appearance, and position within the smile. The crowns we create with our E4D CAD/CAM technology crowns are made of porcelain, which can be precisely matched to the color of your natural teeth. There are several reasons Dr. Dann may recommend having a crown placed, including:
- Attaching it to a dental implant
- Rebuilding the structure of a badly injured or fractured tooth
- Restoring a tooth that’s undergone root canal therapy
- Restoring a large area of decay that’s too severe for a filling
- Protecting a weak tooth from the threat of fracturing
- Giving a discolored tooth a dazzling makeover
Why are same day dental crowns better than normal dental crowns?
The technology that our office offers makes it possible for us to create and place completely customized dental restorations in just one single office visit! This means increased comfort and convenience for our patients, whose time we know is very valuable.
Traditionally, your dentist would take impressions of your damaged tooth and the teeth surrounding it. Our technology eliminates the messiness that impression materials create along with the extended wait. Instead, Dr. Buck or one of his associates will use a digital scanner to capture detailed images of your mouth at every angle.
Contrary to having to wait several weeks for your custom, permanent restoration, the information we collect will be used to create your restoration right in our office! Our sophisticated E4D-powered software will develop a 3D model that can be assessed and manipulated on a computer screen. When the design for your crown is ready, our milling machine will start fabricating your customized dental restoration right in our office. Within just a couple hours, you’ll be leaving our Dublin office with your beautiful, new restoration in place.
