How Wesley Dental creates a Same-Day Crown:
The process to diagnose and create a dental crown usually requires at least two dentist visits and a one-to-three-week wait for the crown to be made at an off-site lab. At Wesley Dental you can expect to be serviced here, in the comfort of our office, from start to finish. Equipped with the latest advanced technology, our E4D Dental System allows for extremely precise digital scans and on-site custom designing and fabrication of your final porcelain crown restoration. Implementing this method bypasses conventional, messy impressions, and temporary crowns, which require additional office visits to complete. Rest assured you will leave our office with your final crown restoration at no additional cost to you.
Steps required for a Same-Day Crown Procedure:
After a thorough examination, Dr. Wesley will prepare your tooth for the final crown restoration. He will remove the decayed portion of your tooth and reshape for your final crown. A digital scan will then be taken using an intra-oral wand, which eliminates messy and often inaccurate impressions, creating a 3D image of your tooth and adjacent teeth. A well-trained Wesley Dental member uses Cad-Cam dental software to tweak the crown design and then sends the digital image to a milling machine. The milling machine is used to sculpt the final crown out of a block of porcelain. Your final porcelain crown is then attached to your prepared tooth using strong adhesives. Implementing this method allows Dr. Wesley and his highly skilled staff to raise the standard of care by following each step of your dental crown restoration personally rather then relying on off-site dental lab facilities.
