Tooth problems can adversely affect your oral functions and comfort. Hence it becomes vital to resolve the issue at the earliest. If you do not have the time for lengthy treatment, we can help. The Dentist in Las Vegas, NV, can reinstate damaged or impaired teeth at our Dream Dental Clinic Las Vegas practice and improve your oral health more quickly than before with a same-day dental crown.
What Is a Same-Day Crown?
Ceramill® system utilizes CAD/CAM technology in fabricating permanent dental crowns and dentures in a single visit with a high level of precision. For patients requiring dental crowns or dentures, digital impressions of their teeth are to be obtained before manufacturing the custom teeth. After obtaining dental impressions, they are transferred to the in-house digital lab. By using Ceramill technology, we design and produce high-quality crowns or dentures with great precision and accuracy. The all-in-one machine captures digital impressions, creates a digital model of the teeth, and builds the mold using the milling machine right away.
When Do You Need a Dental Crown?
You may need a dental crown in the following situations:
- Have suffered trauma to the mouth
- Visible cracks or breaks in the tooth
- Cover a dental implant
- Support a dental bridge restoration
- The tooth looks discolored or grey
- Safeguard a tooth after a root canal therapy
The Same Day Crown Process
Our dentists will examine the affected tooth and then plan the best course of treatment. If we find any infection, we will treat it before proceeding with the crown process.
After any oral conditions are addressed, we will begin work on the same-day crown by taking digital impressions of your tooth. These precise intraoral images will help us plan the dimensions of your crown to fit your smile accurately.
Our in-house milling unit is configured with the measurements of your ideal shade of porcelain to match the color of your existing enamel. You may have to wait for a while until your new crown is manufactured.
Once ready, we will place the same-day crown over the affected tooth and inspect the look and fit. If everything is satisfactory, we apply special dental adhesives to your tooth and cement the crown into position.
Benefits of Same-Day Crown
Traditional crowns fabricated at off-site dental labs may take several weeks. While you wait, you may need to wear a temporary crown that is often ill-fitting and uncomfortable. A same-day restoration eliminates a temporary crown requirement and provides instant protection.
CAD/CAM technology uses digital impressions quicker and more comfortably than conventional putty impressions. Our intraoral camera scans your teeth in seconds and promptly transfers the images to a computer screen.
The same-day crowns are distinguished for their accuracy and precise fit. The quality of a same-day crown often outshines traditional restorations, lasting longer and providing the natural-looking aesthetics of lab-made options.
