The Benefits Of Same Day Crowns
For those seeking dental restorations with the help of cosmetic dentistry, Smile Designers in Gresham, OR is a great resource for patients of all ages. Crowns are used to strengthen damaged teeth so they can function and look the same as a natural tooth. They are generally custom made to help prevent further damage from occurring in the mouth.
The Benefit of Same Day Crowns
Same day crowns are used when tooth decay is advanced. A crown can help protect a tooth if this happens. With the help of cosmetic dentistry, cracked teeth can be protected from worsening. A CAD/CAM system is used for same day crowns as well as veneers, inlays and outlays in our Gresham dental office. We believe in using the latest technology in terms of modern dentistry to help treat our dental patients in the best way.
With this system, we can get fast digital photos in a few minutes with our digital scanners. These photos help us to custom make dental restorations for patients of all ages while they’re still sitting in the dental chair. The impression itself is sent to the machine who creates the crown. No need for impression materials, temporary crowns or multiple dental visits. Everything is done in just one visit. After it is created by the machine, it is placed in the mouth with bonding material that is hardened properly with a curing light. The bite and fit will be checked to ensure that the patient is comfortable with their new restoration.
A comprehensive examination is needed to determine whether or not same day crowns are a viable treatment for you. To schedule an appointment regarding cosmetic dentistry with Dr. Terry Tennant and Dr. Anna Dneprov of Smile Designers in Gresham, OR, call our office today at 503-661-6613.
