For your comfort and safety our practice utilizes Dex’s digital radiography system to minimize radiation exposure while getting the best images possible of your teeth.
To minimize time away from the office and family we offer same day dentistry for crowns. Our office has been fabricating our own crowns for 6 years now utilizing the E4D/Planscan technology. Your customized all porcelain crown is fabricated while you comfortably relax and is completed start to finish in about two hours.
Our Planmeca E4D CAD/CAM system allows us to provide a radically improved patient experience for crowns, bridges and other restorative procedures. This state-of-the-art system allows us to deliver exceptionally high quality crowns to our patients in 2 hours, rather than in 2 weeks. We can even clone your existing tooth. No goo, No wait, No temporary crown.
CAD/CAM stands for computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing. We utilize state-of-the-art CAD/CAM equipment from Planmeca E4D Technologies in order to offer our patients cutting-edge treatments like customized same-day dental crowns.
First, we scan your tooth using an intraoral camera with blue laser technology. We then upload the scan and use the computer to make a 3D image that captures the structure and shape of your tooth. Using this data, we design a custom-fit crown. The computer controlled milling speed diamond bur and calculated precision. Finally, we bond the restoration to the tooth using a resin material.
The bottom line? No temporaries. No return visits. You can have a complete restoration in one day.
