At the office of Philip Shindler, DDS, our skilled and experienced dentist maintains a position at the forefront of the latest advances in care to provide patients with the highest quality services. Today, it’s no longer necessary to make multiple trips to the dentist for teeth that require restoration with a full coverage crown. Attractive, durable, and long-lasting ceramic crowns can now be fabricated in just a single visit!
When the structural integrity of a tooth becomes compromised by injury of decay, a full coverage crown to restore its appearance and function is often required. With conventional approaches to care, the process of fabricating a crown typically takes two to three visits. Multiple trips are necessary because this method involves several separate and distinct steps. First, the tooth gets prepared, an impression is taken, and then a temporary crown is placed over the tooth until the permanent restoration comes back from the dental lab. While this approach to care is still widely used today and offers excellent treatment outcomes, thanks to advances in CAD/CAM technology (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing), treatment time can be effectively reduced to a single visit with the same high-quality results.
Thanks to same day crowns, we can prepare your tooth, optically scan it, virtually design your crown and then send all of the specs to a chairside milling machine to fabricate your ceramic crown all while you wait. That’s right, all this in one visit! Messy impressions, dental temporaries, and waiting for lab work to be returned have all been eliminated. With same day crowns, we can restore your smile more quickly, comfortably, and conveniently. What’s more, your new crown is fabricated from the highest grade of dental ceramics to give you a smile that is naturally beautiful, durable, and long-lasting.
At the office of Philip Shindler, DDS, we’re dedicated to providing the highest quality of skilled and compassionate care. For more information on our office and the many services that we provide, give us a call today.
