If you have ever received a dental crown, you might recall that the treatment process required multiple appointments spaced a few weeks apart. While that method of crown creation is reliable, and many practices still use it, the team at Fresh Pond Dental favors a more streamlined method. We use advanced technology to create one visit dental crowns in Cambridge. Contact us today to learn more about this remarkable and quick restorative treatment.
The one visit crown process begins similarly to the process for traditional crowns. We have to prepare the tooth by removing a bit of enamel. This ensures that the crown will fit well. Then, we take impressions of the teeth. For traditional crowns, the impression process requires that the patient bites down on a putty-like material. For one visit crowns, we use an advanced intraoral scanner instead. The scanner captures countless images of your teeth and assembles them into a three-dimensional digital dental model.
With the help of advanced software, the dentist then designs the crown. We strive to ensure that the size, shape, and color of the restoration is a perfect fit for a patient’s mouth and an aesthetically pleasing complement to their facial characteristics. Once the design is finalized, our in-house milling unit carves the crown out of a single block of dental-grade porcelain. After we verify that the crown’s fit is perfect, we attach it to the tooth.
Most appointments for one visit crowns take a couple of hours or less.
