There just never seem to be enough hours in the day to accomplish everything you need or want to do. If an innovative solution comes along that promises to streamline your routine and uncomplicate your life, you want to know about it!
Same-day crowns are such an innovation because they save hours normally spent getting traditional crowns. CEREC is a technology that many people have heard of, but our dentist in Aurora uses E4D same-day crowns for their superior strength and durability.
How Is It Possible to Get a Dental Crown in One Day?
If you have ever gotten a dental crown, you know it's a time-consuming process. It can involve messy impressions, multiple injections, multiple visits to the dentist, and the inconvenience of living with a temporary crown.
Same-day crown technology does away with all these steps and consolidates the process into a single dental appointment. Instead of having an impression taken with goopy paste, E4D same-day crowns use digital impressions to create a 3-D virtual model of the tooth.
Your dentist uses the impressions with 3-D software to digitally design the crown and customize it for your needs. When the design is finished, an onsite milling unit works like a 3-D printer to fabricate your crown. The entire process takes about two hours, and you will walk out of the dental office the same day with a high-quality crown in place.
Gone are the days of goopy impressions. With E4D technology, Dr. Chen will make an optical impression of your tooth via a digital camera and a tasteless powder. A model of the crown is made and adjusted as needed with E4D's three-dimensional software.
Once the crown is finalized, the onsite milling unit receives the specifications and creates a perfect-fitting crown. Within a few hours, you will be on your way with a brand-new durable dental crown fitted on your tooth.
