Traditionally when a crown is needed, it requires several appointments over a period of several weeks. The initial visit is when the dentist will determine that a crown is necessary, and another appointment is scheduled to prepare the tooth for the crown. At this appointment, a mold is taken of the tooth and sent to the lab for construction. Dr. Breiterman then places a temporary crown, and you return several weeks later to have the permanent crown placed.
For those who simply don’t have the time to visit the dentist three or four times, we have a new, more advanced option in which the crown is placed in one visit. Same day dental crowns are a valuable option for those who are busy.
How Do They Work?
At Advanced Dental Technologies, we are committed to providing our patients with the best in dental care. That’s why we have invested in the Planmeca E4D machine that allows us to create permanent dental crowns in office. You visit us to get your tooth prepared for a crown, we create the crown in office and it is placed the same day.
Every patient is unique, and you will want to meet with Dr. Breiterman to determine if you are a good candidate for a same day dental crown. If you are in good health, have a healthy root to bond the crown to and don’t have a lot of time for multiple visits to the dentist, you are likely a good candidate for a same day crown.
Many of our patients work full time or go to school and it can be difficult to visit the dentist three or four times. The Planmeca E4D machine makes it easy for our busy patients to get the treatment they need without sacrificing their time.
If you need a crown and have been putting it off because you don’t have the time, call us today to schedule an appointment to learn more about same day dental crowns in Wayne, NJ!
