Do you have a cracked or severely damaged tooth? If so, you may be a good candidate for a same-day crown.
At most practices, you have to wait several weeks for a manufacturer to create a customized dental crown. Since Dr. Roberson continually invests in learning and new technology, Roberson Dental Care in Mountain Brook is proud to ensure that our patients can receive their dental crowns in only one visit.
Dental crowns, also referred to as caps, fit securely over a damaged tooth, and completely cover it with a natural colored material that replicates your original tooth. Dr. Roberson takes special care to match the color, shape, strength, and general appearance of your new crown to your existing teeth.
The process to receive a crown is very simple. Dr. Roberson starts by numbing the area and gently shaping the tooth to ensure the crown is a perfect fit. Rather than taking an impression of the tooth as most dentists still do, he creates a three-dimensional image of it using the latest scanning technology, then sends the scan directly to a computer which constructs an instant image of the restored tooth.
The details of your new dental crown, which include its ridges, indentations, size, and shape, then transmit to an onsite milling machine. This machine crafts your custom crown from porcelain to replicate the image from the computer screen.
After only 15 minutes, the process is complete!
When the crown is finished, Dr. Roberson completes the procedure by adhering the dental crown in place.
Our entire team at Roberson Dental Care is excited about this new “same-day crowns” technology. Not only does it make placing crowns easier, it also speeds up and improves the dental implant process. Our priority at Roberson Dental Care is ensuring that all our patients in Mountain Brook, Birmingham, Vestavia Hills and Homewood are able to access the most modern technology available. In this way, any dental issue that arises can be resolved quickly and with minimal discomfort.
