Dental crowns can enhance your smile in several ways. They strengthen and protect damaged teeth, restore function, and improve the appearance of teeth with cosmetic issues. It used to take several weeks to fabricate custom crowns, but same-day crowns are now a reality. Dr. Scott Wingard and Dr. Caleb Morris, the skilled dentists at Summerville Dentistry in Augusta, and Evans, GA, offer same-day dentistry and can improve your smile with same-day crowns.
How Crowns Help
Dental crowns are hollow tooth-like caps that fit directly over problem teeth. There are multiple benefits to improving your smile with dental crowns. They look just like natural teeth and restore both beauty and function to your smile. Some of the numerous ways crowns help include:
- Strengthening damaged teeth
- Restoring biting and chewing functions
- Filling in the gaps where teeth are missing
- Protecting teeth from excess wear and tear
- Improving the appearance of teeth with cosmetic issues
- Preventing loose fillings from falling out
We use the E4D Dentist system for crowns at our same-day dentistry office. The system utilizes computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) technology to design and fabricate custom dental crowns all in one day. CAD software generates a digital 3D model of the teeth and transfers it to a milling machine where CAM technology produces custom crowns in just minutes. As soon as they are ready, the same-day crowns can be placed immediately.
A major advantage of choosing same-day crowns over traditional dental crowns is that you save so much time because everything can be done in one appointment. With same-day crowns, you won’t have to wait weeks for a separate dental lab to fabricate the crowns and then send them to the dentist’s office. Your custom crowns can be created and placed in a single day in Augusta, and Evans, GA, so you can enjoy your newly restored smile right away.
Another benefit of same-day crowns is the use of a digital model of the teeth. The ability to generate a digital model eliminates the need to create a physical mold, which can be messy. Further, the process of creating a physical mold of the teeth can be uncomfortable for some patients.
Same-day crowns offer many benefits, not the least of which is being able to improve your smile in a single day.
