Same-Day Crowns in Placerville CA
We know that when you need a crown, dealing with a temporary and hoping the laboratory makes the crown perfect the first time can be frustrating. Here at Pacific Street Dental, we have the option of utilizing CAD/CAM technology to make your crown the same day – avoiding the need for a temporary and knowing the crown is being designed by the people who know what the actual tooth looks like.
Good oral health is critical to maintaining your teeth. Untreated tooth decay can lead to further cavities and periodontal disease which can lead to needing root canals or even tooth extractions. Because most oral health conditions are preventable, practicing good oral health and seeing your dentist regularly is key to keeping those problems at bay.
Good oral health starts with excellent oral hygiene. Brushing your teeth, flossing daily, and seeing the dentist for regular appointments are a must. Treated in the early stages, tooth decay and tooth disease are manageable.
The use of technology aids many current dental procedures. In addition, this advanced technology makes same-day dental corrections easy.
- CAD/CAM dentistry: computer-aided design, computer-aided manufacturing technology can be used for your dentist to make dental procedures more efficient and more accurate. This technology can be used to make a perfectly fitting crown all in one day.
- CAD/CAM Crowns: This technology allows your dentist to prepare the tooth, take an impression, and create the crown in one visit.
- CEREC: The crowns made using Cerec technology can be a variety of different materials for a customized fit and look while being designed right in front of you.
The treatment for getting a same-day crown in a dental clinic works in a way that is similar to a 3D printer. The dentist will take pictures of the tooth that needs a crown. Then, with the CAD/CAM pictures of your tooth, the software will create a perfect crown for you and your smile makeover.
The machine then uses the pictures to make a 3D tooth to the identical specifications for that tooth. Since your tooth is ready to receive the crown, the dentist will polish it and affix it to the tooth for a permanent cover.
Although you might have excellent dental health, sometimes things happen that are out of your control – a crown is a perfect solution to cover a tooth trauma or decayed tooth.
