No Messy impressions/ No Temporary crown

 

With digital Omnicam and Cerec  CAD/CAM technologies were are now able to offer strong, aesthetic, functional same day crowns in many dental situations.  I’m sure you do not get excited about having see the dentist and having to survive a messy impression taken over and over causing you to gag.  With digital impression the process is much more comfortable for you as patient.  After the tooth is prepared we simply scan your teeth to take a digital impression.  This impression is extremely accurate and allows us to fabricate a crown with precise fit. 



Having a Cerec milling machine in our office then allows us to make that crown same day, no temporary crown for 2-4 weeks.  When the appointment is over you leave with an aesthetic all porcelain crown.   The appoint does tend to be slightly longer but the pay off is in 2 weeks when you don’t have to come back, be re-anesthetized, and have your temporary changed out for the final restoration.  This saves patients from having to re-work their busy schedules for multiple appointments.  If you need a crown or just an exam to determine what needs to be done, please contact my office at 423-639-2176 to set up an exam/consultation today.  At ABC Family Dentistry we strive to have the most up to date dental technology to provide our patients with the best services we can.
