No Messy Impressions.
One Easy Appointment.
Our office offers advanced dental technology that is utilized for the restoration of decayed, cracked, or chipped teeth. This technology can create full crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers. The technology crafts a restoration in a matter of minutes. The fabricated restorations are made of compressed porcelain or newer materials that are hybrid with composite resin and porcelain. The most beneficial feature of receiving an in-office restoration is that it can be accomplished in one visit. In addition to the benefit of a one visit restoration, there is no uncomfortable impression material to bite on or temporary to wear.
The procedure for placement of an in-office restoration is very simple. The first step is to remove all decay from the tooth. The doctor will then shape the tooth in preparation to take a digital picture. The tooth is then sprayed with a very fine powder. This allows the digital camera to take an acceptable image. Once this image is captured, the tooth will appear on a computer screen in 3D. This will allow the doctor to design the restoration right in front of you. Once the design is completed, the restoration is milled. You can actually watch this process if you would like. When the restoration is finished milling, the doctor will place the restoration. The entire process can be accomplished during your single visit.
