Same-Day Dental Crown (Cap)
Dental crowning, or capping, at most practices usually involves two appointments over a period of a few weeks with a temporary crown. This long wait and inconvenience may seem unmanageable and prevent you from seeking the treatment that you need.
At Reliant Dental Group, we can diagnose, prepare the tooth, design the crown, mill it, and deliver the crown in just a single appointment. That’s the beauty of our vhf Z4 Milling system.
The first step in the same day crown process is to remove any decay or damaged material from the tooth. Then the tooth is prepared for the crown by minimally shaving down a portion of the tooth on all sides. The reduced space will make room for the crown to fit over the tooth and still occupy the same space as the original natural tooth. Once the preparation is complete, we use a scanner to record the measurements of the tooth.
Our doctors will design your crown right in the dental office, allowing you to see what it will look like. The design is sent to the vhf Z4 milling station, which takes the data and mills a block of solid dental porcelain, creating your custom crown.
After the crown is milled, we test the bite and see if you are satisfied with the fit. Once we agree everything is right, we cement the crown permanently onto your tooth. That’s it! You’re out the door with a new crown. Contact the Reliant Dental Group for fast, easy crown fitting in West Roxbury and the greater Boston area.
