Single visit crowns afford you to the opportunity to obtain a high-quality, esthetic restoration in a single appointment at our Orono, MN dental office. By eliminating the need for multiple dental visits, we are able to provide exceptional restorations in a fraction of the time.
If your teeth sustain damage either from trauma, decay, or biting into something hard, a dental crown can save your tooth, provide protection, and eliminate pain or sensitivity common with damaged teeth.
Each custom crown created in our office is designed to blend in perfectly with your smile while providing long-term reliability and durability. By opting for a dental crown, you are making a great choice for protecting the beauty and function of your smile.
We begin by removing any decay or damaged tooth structure while making space for your new restoration. Your comfort is our top priority! Our gentle dentists will numb your tooth, making your treatment pain-free.
Unlike most dental offices, we eliminate the need for multiple visits in order to successfully restore the appearance and function of your teeth. CEREC (chairside economic restoration of esthetic ceramics) uses the latest CAD/CAM technology to provide you with the best results in a timely fashion.
Using 3-D scanning technology, we take a digital impression of your teeth, eliminating the need for gooey, easily distorted impressions. Our patients truly appreciate this convenience and our doctors appreciate the accuracy.
Once we scan your tooth, we send it to our CEREC software where it will be processed and transmitted to our milling chamber where your restoration will be created from a single piece of ceramic or porcelain.
After milling, we glaze and color the restoration to match your natural teeth. The result is an extremely esthetic replacement tooth that is tough and long lasting.
The average treatment time from start to finish lasts about two hours, and you will walk out the door with your permanent dental crown. By eliminating the middle man, a third-party dental lab, we achieve better results and affordability on your behalf.
While our single visit dental crowns are superior in strength and durability, they do require care to ensure their longevity. Maintaining good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing as recommended and keeping regular dental exams and professional dental cleanings will guarantee the longest life for your dental crown.
You should also avoid biting into anything other than food. That goes for your natural teeth as well as your dental crowns!
If you have a damaged tooth or suspect you need a dental crown, contact Orono Dental Care to schedule an appointment with one of our experienced dentists. We look forward to hearing from you!
