Same Day Crowns using E4D Technologies
Crowns are a type of dental restoration which, when cemented into place, fully covers that portion of a tooth which lies at and above the gum line. In comparison, composite fillings/inlays/onlays are dental restorations that are used to fill in or cover over just a portion of a tooth. Since dental crowns encase the entire visible aspect of a tooth, a dental crown in effect becomes the tooth's new outer surface.
Crowns are used to rebuild broken or decayed teeth, to strengthen teeth, and as a means by which to enhance the cosmetic appearance of teeth. Crowns can be made out of porcelain/ceramic, gold alloy, or a combination of both. Dental crowns are often referred to as "dental caps".
While traditionally crowns take at least two appointments several weeks apart as the crowns need to be custom ordered from a lab. E4D technologies allow our clinic to manufacture custom crowns on site. Same day crowns not only eliminate the need for multiple visits but also eliminate the need to have temporary crowns saving both time and money.
