How Do You Place Same Day Crowns?

When you develop a damaged tooth, or if you suffer from dental decay or infection, then you may need a restoration. Using advanced technology, we offer our Tucson, AZ, patients custom-made restorations in a single visit! Find out more about our same day crowns and the E4D system in today’s blog.

The Benefits of a Dental Crown

The dental crown fits over the tooth’s visible portion, which means we can use them to completely alter the shape and color of the teeth, addressing a variety of cosmetic and restorative issues. For example, we often use them to repair cracked or chipped teeth, lengthen worn down teeth, and address advanced cases of tooth decay. Placement also reshapes malformed teeth and anchors dental bridges in place. We even use them to restore single tooth dental implants, providing lifelike tooth replacement.

Creating Lifelike Restorations in One Visit

We begin by preparing the tooth. In order to make room for the crown, we need to remove a small amount of tooth structure. We then take detailed digital impressions, which allows our team to create a 3D model we can upload into the E4D machine. The machine then crafts the new restoration from dental ceramic, a strong material that contains stain-resistant material and blends with the rest of your smile. We then place the completed restoration. In a single visit, we can repair and restore your smile!

Keeping Them Strong and Healthy

By continuing to maintain good homecare and see us for regular six-month checkups and cleanings, you help keep your natural teeth healthy and safeguard your brand-new restoration. You should be flossing every night before bed and taking time to brush your teeth twice a day. If you have any questions about same day crowns or routine homecare, then contact our team today.
