What is a "one visit" or “same day” crown?
When it’s time to get a crown, many people despise the idea of scheduling the multiple visits usually required for the procedure. At our practice, however, you don’t have to deal with that anymore. With Planmeca FIT, this innovative solution allows our staff to use CAD/CAM technology to custom design your crown—right here in our office.
With a same day crown, our dentists prep your tooth in the usual way, but then we can custom design the tooth while you wait. Since we do it all right here, that means no more waiting weeks for an outside lab to do the work.
That also means no more messy impressions. With same day crowns, we take a digital image of your teeth—something that allows our skilled staff to design your new crown so it fits precisely in place the way you’d expect it to. Plus, the innovative technology allows us to match the crown color to the natural color of your surrounding teeth.
No more temporary crowns either. Once the crown is complete, our dentist checks the fit, cements it in place, and you are good to go.
