When it comes to appointments that take time away from your daily life, faster is better. Creative Smiles understands that not everyone has time to take off work and it’s hard enough to make your semiannual dental appointments as it is. Thankfully, if you are in pain because of a decayed, fractured, or damaged tooth, you can now get your tooth restored in one appointment. No, you didn’t misread that! Your dentist in Columbus has the advanced technology and training to turn the lengthy process of getting a dental crown into a fast, effective, single appointment.
What is a dental crown?
Our innovative practice offers a great restoration option for patients interested in restoring the functionality of their smile. Same day crowns in Columbus are designed to completely cover or “cap” individual teeth. Dental crowns can also be attached to dental implants to create an effective, lifelike tooth prosthetic. This process significantly improves the tooth’s health, appearance, and position within the smile. The crowns we create with our E4D CAD/CAM technology crowns are made of porcelain, which can be precisely matched to the color of your natural teeth. There are several reasons Dr. Dann may recommend having a crown placed, including:
- Protecting a weak tooth from fracturing
- Repairing the structure of a badly injured tooth
- Attaching it to a dental implant
- Restoring a large area of decay that’s too severe for a filling
- Reinforcing a tooth that’s undergone root canal therapy
- Giving a dark, discolored tooth a lifelike makeover
What makes a “same day dental crown” better than a normal dental crown?
The equipment that our office has combined with our expertise makes it possible for us to create and place customized dental restorations in one single office visit! Our patients time is valuable. The least we can do is make each dental visit as comfortable and convenient as possible.
Originally, your dentist would take impressions of your damaged tooth and the teeth surrounding it for a traditional crown. Our technology eliminates the mess that impression materials create along with the extended wait it takes to create them. Instead, Dr. Buck or one of his associates will use a digital scanner to capture detailed images of your mouth at every angle.
Instead of waiting several weeks for your custom, permanent restoration, the information we collect will be used to create your restoration right in our office! Our sophisticated E4D-powered software will develop a 3D model that can be manipulated right on our computer screen. When your crown has been designed and ready, our milling machine will start fabricating your customized dental restoration right in our office. Within just a couple hours, you’ll be leaving our Columbus office with your fitted, beautiful, tooth-colored restoration in place.
