The procedure to have a crown fitted has evolved substantially from just a few years ago. Today’s technology allows our team to create a custom-fitted crown on the day of your appointment. Getting a crown no longer requires multiple visits spread out over weeks. Our same-day crown process saves you time, discomfort and the inconvenience of a temporary plastic crown. Gone are the days of waiting for a mold of your teeth to cure. Using a state-of-the-art digital impression method, our team surveys your tooth with a scanner wand to optically capture your crown preparation. Best of all, you don’t need to go far for perfectly fitting one-day crowns because Vincent Vella DDS provides same-day crowns near you in Rochester, NY.
How Same Day Crowns Work
The advanced technology of optical scanning is what makes same-day crowns possible. Optical scanning allows us to create a 3-D rendering of your tooth and prepare your tooth for its crown. Using this technology in tandem with the Ivoclar Vivadent PrograMill® One, our team will design and fabricate your new crown and have it cemented into place in a matter of a few hours rather than weeks.
Advantages of Same Day Crowns?
Convenience is a huge advantage with same-day crowns. If you have ever cracked a tooth and needed a crown in the past you know just how inconvenient the process can be. The outdated method for crown placement meant multiple visits to your dentist and waiting weeks for your crown to be fabricated in a lab. Afterward, you’d have to return to the dentist who would remove your temporary crown and install the new permanent one. Same-day crowns allow our office to bypass temporary crown installation. Temporary crowns are often ill-fitting and uncomfortable. Their use may require modifications to your diet and dental care to account for the temporary adhesive, which can become dislodged. With same-day crowns you skip the discomfort of a temporary crown and the weeks of waiting. Instead you get to have your tooth repaired permanently, while you wait.
