Grande Prairie serves as the business hub for the Peace region. This is a big area making dental efficiency a must. By offering same day crowns at Wapiti dental we strive to do just that.
Some might think: Does efficiency come at the expense of quality? The answer is no they are made out of the same material one made by the milling machine in the office the other required a lab to fabricate.. Here is a list of some of the benefits of these crowns milled in office.
Traditional crowns are made in an outside lab which takes at least two visits to get a crown. On the other hand, same-day crowns are manufactured in the dentist’s office then can be ready in approximately 30 min. .
These crowns are an excellent option for patients who don’t want to take much time off of work to get a crown placed.
A misconception is that perhaps, same-day crowns are made from weaker material and are limited to temporary use.
That’s not true.
These crowns in most cases are made from the same materials, the difference being one is made in house the other is outsourced. Outsourcing requires more people and more time..
These crowns look incredibly natural. The zirconia used to make the crowns comes in a variety of shades to match your smile. Furthermore they can be stained to mimic the characteristics of your existing dentition. From your bite pattern to tooth shade, same-day crowns blend in seamlessly with your smile.
The zirconia used to fabricate the crowns is a very strong material. Due to its strength it is not required to be overly thick inorder to safely protect the tooth. This allows for minimal removal of the natural tooth, thus conserving your tooth.
For conventional crowns, the dentist requires impressions to be taken to send to the lab. This process is uncomfortable especially if you have a strong gag reflex.
Thankfully, same-day crowns eliminate the need for impressions. Instead, digital mapping is used to get impressions. The overall procedure is much more comfortable.
Aside from all other benefits, these crowns have a personalized fit. The 3D model produced by the digital scanner ensures precise measurements of your tooth and the software used allows for a natural feel to your teeth.
Same-day crowns save time and offer a customized fit for your tooth. They look natural and are suitable for long-term use. Perfect for the need of people in Grande Prairie.
It’s true that you have a genetic contribution to the symmetry and color of your teeth. But the health of your teeth is greatly determined by how well you take care of them.
Why spend more time at the dentist than absolutely necessary? Same day crowns can minimize dental headaches and give you more time to do what you love doing.
