Same-Day Dental Crowns
Dental crowns protect your oral health and restore the appearance and function of your smile, but the traditional process for getting them can be time-consuming. While the results are worth it, not everyone has time for multiple appointments and a two-week wait to get a high-quality dental crown.
At Uptown Comprehensive Dentistry and Prosthodontics, Dr. John Chen offers same-visit dental crowns. Whether you’re on a tight timeline or you just don’t want to wait weeks for your restoration, same-day dental crowns at our Aurora, CO is the perfect solution. Instead of multiple steps and a long wait, now you can leave our office the same day with a durable, customized dental crown that blends beautifully with your smile.
How Same-Day Dental Crowns Work
You might have heard of CEREC same-day crowns, but at our office, we use a different system called E4D that uses 3-D software to help us plan and design your new dental crown. We are proud to offer this fascinating technology to our patients who need a new dental crown but don’t want the wait or inconvenience or wait associated with lab-fabricated crowns.
There are several ways E4D same-day dental crowns streamline the process:
- No need for multiple appointments or injections
- No messy, uncomfortable impressions
- No two-week wait while a lab creates your dental crown
- No temporary crown to deal with while you wait
We start the process by preparing your tooth just as we would for a crown made at an outside dental lab. But that is where the similarity between the processes ends!
The Process for Getting Same-Day Dental Crowns
If you’ve ever had impressions taken of your teeth, you know it can be an uncomfortable process, especially if you have a strong gag reflex. Instead, Dr. Chen uses a digital scanner that takes impressions without the mess and inconvenience.
With cutting-edge digital scanning technology, Dr. Chen passes the small handheld scanner over your teeth. He then uses the digital impressions to create a 3-D digital model of your teeth and design your new crown.
Next, we send the information to a milling machine in our Aurora dental office that works like a 3-D printer. You’ll be amazed to watch while your new dental crown is milled from a block of ceramic, and in about 20 minutes, your crown will be ready!
Placing your same-day dental crown is similar to the traditional process; we check the restoration for proper fit, make adjustments as needed, and cement it securely in place.
