Same Day Crowns
This device is fast and painless! No more biting into gooey, bad tasting molds! A simple scan around the mouth with the precision tool and we will have everything we need.
Even better than the fast, convenient exam is the evolution of same-day dentistry. That is right! No more getting a temporary crown until your new one is being made at our lab. No more waiting. No more extra visits to the dentist! No more taking off work or trying to find a baby-sitter! By using the Plan Scan system, we are able to design, create, and place your crown or other restoration in a matter of just a couple of hours.
One visit and that is it!
You may wonder how we can possibly take the uncomfortable two visit restoration process and decrease it to just a few hours... it is all part of the technology! We are able to easily import the details of your teeth and bite into the system and use the data to define the exact prosthetic device we want. It will fit perfectly because the design will have been created from 3D imaging software. The 3D images provided by the PlanScan are used with software on our computers for actually creating our own 3D image of the prosthetic we wish to create.
Once the restoration is planned, we send it to our mill system. The mill takes the data imported from the PlanScan and the dentist's input for the restoration. From there, the dentist may add information about the type of material and shade to be used for the restoration. The dentist will click "send to the mill" and your prosthetic is on the way to be created in the mill.
At the mill, the dentist will check the material, shade, and orientation so that the restoration is correctly created. The restoration is milled within an hour or so, depending upon the size and complexity of the restoration.
Once milled, we can take the newly mill restoration, which has been designed exactly for your mouth with more specification than ever, and begin the application process. Usually this is unable to be performed before your second visit. The crown or other restoration fits perfectly and will match your teeth. The restoration will be undectable!
