Are you suffering from a cracked, chipped, or damaged tooth? You can now repair your smile in just one day with our same day dental crowns.
At Hanson Dentistry in Independence, MO, Dr. Robert N. Hanson uses E4D CAD-CAM technology to design and mill a crown or cap in under three hours. This fast and innovative process eliminates the need for messy impressions, temporary crowns, and repeated visits to our office.
E4D CAD/CAM Technology
E4D CAD/CAM technology makes it possible for patients to receive metal-free crowns in as little as one office visit. This state-of-the-art technology uses a digital infrared camera to obtain an optical impression of the damaged tooth. Next, 3D CAD software is used to design the tooth restoration. Finally, CAM technology uses a high-speed drilling machine to accurately construct the new crown.
Same Day Crown Process
Same day dental crowns begin in the same way as traditional crowns: by removing decay from the tooth and preparing it to be capped. The dentist will then take optical impressions with a small scanning wand. The digital pictures taken will then generate a 3D model of your teeth. The milling unit of the CAD/CAM machine is used to create the tooth from a ceramic block. After making any necessary aesthetic enhancements, the crown is bonded to the tooth.
With same day dental crowns, patients can receive a permanent restoration in just a few hours. Cutting-edge CAD/CAM technology has helped tens of thousands of patients restore the function and appearance of their teeth without long wait times in between visits.
