Implant, Cosmetic & Family Dentist Serving Aurora, Centennial, Parker, Green Valley Ranch & Nearby Areas of Colorado
Would you rather finish your dental work in one visit or two? Traditionally, the process of planning, creating, and placing dental crowns takes three to four weeks and multiple visits to the dentist. This can make the process seem long and drawn out. What’s more, a temporary restoration must be placed following the preparation of your tooth and the placement of your crown. Temporary crowns are not often ideal matches for your smile and can impact both its aesthetic and functional quality. Unfortunately, how long you have to wear a temporary crown is reliant on how quickly a third-party dental laboratory can make your customized restoration.
Highpoint Dental Care possesses lab technology in the office allowing for fabrication of a crown during the same visit. This appointment lasts two hours and completely avoids the need for a second appointment. Our office strives to offer the same services that we ourselves desire, helping ensure we are able to give you the fastest, safest, and most effective treatments available. Imagine walking in with a badly broken tooth, and walking out two hours later not having to return until your next checkup. This is the modern age, and modern techniques in dentistry should allow us to enjoy the outside world more than the dental chair. As with all of our crowns, Same Day Crowns come with a 5 year warranty that will be honored against all defects as long as a person maintains their hygiene and check-up visits.
If you are interested in learning more about this time-and-money-saving option, call our Aurora office at 303-617-9100 to schedule your initial consultation right away.
We use the a scanning and milling machine to create life-like, customized crowns for our patients. This technology, known as Planmeca E4D, uses computer aided design (CAD/CAM) technology to create highly detailed electronic models of your teeth, enabling the milling machine to produce a crown that looks, feels, and functions like the tooth it is replacing. The entire process takes just a few hours and requires no impressions or other time-consuming and uncomfortable planning tools to complete.
E4D maps teeth with lasers. Unlike CEREC crowns, there is no need to dust your teeth with messy powder before making the digital impressions.
Single visit crowns offer all of the benefits of lab-created crowns in a fraction of the time. The quality, durability, functionality, and appearance of same day crowns make them an ideal solution for many of our patients.
The best way to learn if they are a good fit for you is through a one-on-one consultation with our dentist. During this visit, we will listen carefully to your concerns and goals, discuss all possible treatment options, and work with you to select the most effective option for your needs.
In addition to ceramic crowns, our CAD/CAM system can be used to mill:
While not appropriate for every need, same day restorations provide a strong, reliable, and attractive solution for both general and emergency dentistry needs and can be used in combination with other treatments for more comprehensive smile improvement.
