Is it possible to merge old-fashioned values with the new technological breakthroughs that are driving our society forward? At Chambers Family Dentistry, we prove that the two supposed polarities can co-exist, as we combine our commitment to excellence with the use of the latest technological advancements to ensure you save valuable time on the placement of your same day crowns in Annapolis. Read on to learn how you stand to benefit from our in-house Intraoral Scanner and Milling system!
The Traditional Crown Placement Method
The most common protocol for crown placement is after having any restorative work done, dental impressions are taken and then sent to a fabrication lab. Meanwhile, you’ll be fitted with a temporary crown to protect the tooth. Weeks later, you’ll head back to the dentist to have the final restoration placed.
A new era is upon us, though. No longer do patients have to wait to have their dental procedure completed so they can get back to living a normal life. Welcome to the world of same day crowns!
How the Same Day Crown Process Works
Now, with the use of our Intraoral Scanner and in-office Milling System, patients don’t have to waste time setting multiple appointments to have a single restoration process finalized. This is how our process works.
With our Intraoral Camera, you won’t have to undergo any messy impressions. Instead, we’ll quickly and accurately capture a 3D image of your smile. Better yet, the images almost simultaneously appear on a chairside monitor so you can be involved in the process.
The information received will then be communicated to our in-office milling machine.
When your smile information is input into the CAD/CAM design software, we’ll be able to create a final restoration that meets the desired color, size and shape criteria to create a balanced and appealing smile.
Why Convenience Matters
In the fast-paced world we live in, it’s imperative to have ways to protect one of your most valuable assets: your time. By having your tooth fully restored in just one visit, you don’t have to worry about making schedule accommodations. That amounts to less stress and more time to dedicate to completing other important tasks.
Here are some other benefits you stand to gain by receiving a same day crown:
- Greater quality control
- Non-invasive procedure
- Precision-designed to fit comfortably
- Natural looking tooth that fits perfectly into your smile line
- Made from safe, effective and durable ceramic material
