We want to help our Tucson, AZ, patients enjoy optimal oral health. Which means when they see us for damaged or decayed teeth, then we may suggest a dental crown. With advanced digital technology and CAD/CAM systems, we can place a crown in just one visit. How do we create these same day crowns?
When Do We Prescribe Them?
Since a crown covers the visible portion of a tooth, we can employ them for a number of cosmetic and restorative concerns. For example, they help stop the progression of advanced the decay. We use them to complete a root canal, treating infections and preventing tooth loss. If a tooth becomes broken or chipped, or develops a fracture, a crown can restore it. They also lengthen teeth worn down by bruxism and reshape malformed or discolored ones as well. If you lose a tooth, then the restorations help anchor a dental bridge in place and also restore a single tooth dental implant.
The E4D System
The E4D system employs CAD/CAM technology to offer a new restoration in one sitting. We begin by preparing the tooth receiving the crown, which means removing a small section of outer tooth structure. We then take digital impressions using intraoral cameras. The images help the dentist create a 3D model of the tooth and design them. We then upload this information in to the E4D milling machine, which sits onsite. The machine then creates the crown from a solid block of ceramic. Once complete, we can then place them with a bonding agent. We use ceramic to create them due to the material’s lifelike appearance and powerful strength.
Preserving Your Restorations
Routine care helps ensure your newly repaired tooth stays strong and healthy. When you brush and floss daily, you not only safeguard your natural teeth, but any restorations as well. You should also see us every six months for a checkup and cleaning. We monitor your smile (and your restorations) during the checkup, and a cleaning removes all plaque from the smile, protecting your teeth from tooth decay, infection, gingivitis and gum disease. If you have any questions about repairing your smile, or about our same day dental improvements, then contact our team today. We want to help you enjoy optimal oral health and a stunning smile!
