If you have a decayed or damaged tooth and we have recommended a crown, you may be wondering how this works.
A dental crown is a cap that can restore a tooth and improve the tooth’s appearance and function. A crown can strengthen the tooth and improve your bite. This type of cap looks just like a tooth and will fully encase your tooth when applied.
Crowns can also attach a bridge if you have a missing tooth. We will build a bridge that caps the adjacent teeth and stretches over the gap where your tooth was.
We Use Same Day Crown Technology for a Quick Turnaround
Conventional methods for creating a crown that specifically fits your tooth used to require making an impression of your teeth and bite, wearing a temporary restoration for weeks while your crown is manufactured off-site, and then returning to the dentist for application of the device.
Here at Candlewood Dental Care we use the E4D Dentist System for same day service! In just one office visit, we will use this state-of-the-art imaging technology to get precise measurements and shaping for the crown. We’ll send this information to our in-house milling station for a virtual design of your restoration. You can even preview its appearance in advance!
In just a short time, you’ll be fitted with your crown which has been further customized by shade and luster to match your own teeth.
We use the same technology for cosmetic restorations such as inlays, onlays and veneers.
You will love the comfort and convenience of same-day dentistry almost as much as you’ll love the natural look and feel of your custom-made crown.
