How Are Same Day Crowns Made?
Same day crowns are very similar from Knutson Family Dentistry in Vermillion are very similar to traditional crowns, except that they are made in-office instead of in a lab and the impressions are made with a wand instead of traditional molds.
First, the dentist uses a wand with a camera to create a three-dimensional impression of your teeth. The impression is then uploaded to the computer, which suggests a design for the crown. The dentist will tweak the design if needed.
Once the final design is complete, it is sent to the in-office milling machine and the milling machine begins to carve the new crown out of a ceramic block while the patient waits. As soon as the new crown is complete, the dentist can attach it right then and there. The entire process is completed in only one office visit.
