Boston Crown-in-a-Day (Same Day Dental Crowns)
Boston Center for Oral Health is pleased to offer the latest state-of-the-art tools and techniques in digital dentistry to produce same-day dental crowns. From the convenience of our Boston dentist office, Dr. Carmine Morreale can take digital scans of our patients’ teeth and produce precise lab-quality restorations. This means that patients can be evaluated, fitted, and placed with a new custom-made restoration — all within a single, convenient appointment.
What is digital dentistry?
Digital dentistry refers to dentistry that incorporates computer-aided design (CAD) or computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) to make dental care easier, faster and, most importantly, better for patients. It allows for increased accuracy and efficiency for dentists when carrying out procedures such as restorations.
What technology do you use?
Our practice utilizes cutting edge “PlanScan” devices from E4D Technologies, which allow us to produce lab-quality restorations in the convenience of our own office. The entire process of scanning, designing and creating these restorations takes just hours.
What are the benefits of crown-in-a-day?
A crown-in-a-day procedure has a number of advantages:
- Conveniently performed in a single office visit
- Increased accuracy and efficiency
- Fast, permanent results
- Beautiful and natural-looking restorations
What does a crown-in-a-day procedure involve?
A crown-in-a-day procedure involves just one office visit, usually completed in three hours or less. Dr. Morreale will first scan your tooth using a high-tech device, rather than take a conventional impression. Next, a custom restoration is designed to fit your unique smile. Then your new crown will be fabricated using a state-of-the-art milling unit right in our office. The final restoration is placed in your mouth the same day.
