Did You Know We Can Place Crowns In One Visit?

A restoration corrects problems with a tooth while also protecting it from further decay, infection, or damage. A dental crown is a common restoration and one we use frequently to help patients. In the past, the placement process took between two and three visits and often necessitated the wearing of a temporary in between visits. However, we’re proud to offer our patients a chance to receive a crown in one visit.

  1. True or False: We can address a variety of oral health issues with them.
  2. True or False: We can design and place them in a single sitting.
  3. True or False: You don’t need to bite down on sticky impressions.
  4. True or False: The completed crown will look completely natural.

Answer Key

  1. True. We can fix tooth decay, complete a root canal, and repair cracked or chipped teeth. We can also reshape teeth with cosmetic issues, anchor a dental bridge in pace, and even restore a single tooth dental implant.
  2. True. First, we prepare the tooth by removing a small amount of structure, we then take detailed impressions. Using the CEREC system, we can mill a completed crown from a single block of ceramic. We can then place the retraction with a powerful bonding agent, all in the same visit.
  3. True. Instead, we can take digital impressions. Using a small wand with a camera on the end, known as an intraoral camera, we can take a number of pictures comfortably in seconds, which we use to design the restoration.
  4. True. The ceramic we use can mimic tooth enamel and even be shaded to better match the rest of your smile.
