Seamless Smiles: Unveiling the Advantages of Digital Crowns
Experience the convenience of digital crowns. At Dental Spa of Artesia, our advanced technology restores teeth in a single visit.
Traditional crowns usually require multiple appointments, temporary crowns, and waiting time for the crown to be created in a dental laboratory. However, digital crowns offer a more streamlined and efficient process.
Here’s how the process of getting a digital crown typically works:
Tooth Preparation: The damaged or decayed portion of the tooth is prepared just like with traditional crowns. Any decay is removed, and the tooth is shaped to accommodate the crown.
Digital Impressions: Instead of using traditional putty-like impression materials, a digital scanner is used to capture highly accurate 3D images of the prepared tooth and surrounding areas.
Virtual Design: The digital impressions are used to create a virtual 3D model of the crown on a computer screen. The dentist can adjust the design to ensure proper fit and aesthetics.
In-House Fabrication: The crown’s design is sent to an in-office milling machine, which carves the crown from a block of ceramic material. This process typically takes only a short amount of time.
Placement: Once the crown is ready, it is bonded directly to the prepared tooth. The fit, color, and shape are checked to ensure it matches the patient’s natural teeth.
The advantages of digital crowns include convenience, as they can often be completed in a single visit, and accuracy, as the digital impressions lead to precise fitting crowns. Patients also avoid the discomfort of temporary crowns and the need for a second appointment. Digital crowns are an excellent option for restoring damaged or decayed teeth efficiently and effectively.
