Atlantis, FL area dentist explains technology and benefits of one day dental crowns
In a conventional dental office, ceramic restorations such as dental crowns required extensive time to complete from start to finish. However, at Atlantis Dental Care, patients can speak with Dr. Yagi Patel and her team about metal-free restorations that are completed in just one day. Our dentist explains to patients the benefits and technology used in creating one-day restorations in the Atlantis, FL area to restore broken teeth and improve teeth shape.
What are single visit crowns?
Single visit crowns are restorations that are used to enhance or repair the smile in a natural-looking way. Crowns are porcelain “caps” that are custom-made to cement over a tooth to offer it an extra layer of protection and strength. They are often needed when patients have teeth that:
- Are broken or chipped
- Have large cavities or fillings
- Are missing and have dental implants in place
- Are unusually shaped or discolored
- Teeth that are root canaled
What is the process of obtaining a crown?
When patients are told they can benefit from the placement of a dental crown, they start with their dentist in preparing the tooth, which may require filing down natural tooth enamel. Then, images are taken with a special digital camera and transferred to a milling machine, where the crown is fabricated in approximately forty minutes while patients wait. The final porcelain crown is cemented in place and completed during the same visit.
