Everyone wants a smile they can be proud of. And sometimes, a little damage or decay on a tooth can make you hesitant to show off your smile. The team at East Ridge Dental offers state-of-the-art technology right here in office. Dr. Reckling, Dr. Seaborn, and the team can design and mill same day crowns!
Goodbye gooey impressions. Goodbye second visit. Goodbye temporary crown. Hello same day dentistry!
After Dr. Reckling or Dr. Seaborn has prepared the tooth for the placement of the crown, their assistant will design and mill it. The process takes only an hour or two producing a durable, ceramic crown with a natural look and feel. Same day crown technology is priced the same as traditional crowns sent to an outside lab.
If you’re ready to setup an appointment, give us a call! If you still have questions or concerns about your need for a crown, we are here to answer some questions you may have about how same day crowns work at East Ridge Dental.
A crown is a prosthetic placed over the remaining tooth surface to replace a damaged or decayed tooth. It’s made of extremely durable ceramic, designed to match the exact shade of your smile and is cemented onto existing teeth or implants.
Materials for crowns typically include ceramic, porcelain, gold, E-Max or Zirconia.
Typical crowns are made by taking an impression of the tooth to be crowned, then sending the impression to a dental lab to create the crown which could take a few days. However, at East Ridge Dental, we have the latest advances in dental technology which allows us to make crowns in-office!
Rather than taking an impression like a normal crown – which can be uncomfortable for some patients – we use a 4-D scanner to make a computerized image of your teeth. This process is much faster and more comfortable for you.
We also have the ability to mill the crown in our own office, which is the real time-saver. Our dental assistants are highly-trained in using this system and we offer a 5-year guarantee on the crown. Our same day crowns save you time away from your work or family so you can get back to life!
When you feel good about your smile it shows, and East Ridge Dental offers an array of services to help you look and feel your best!
