Do you have fragile teeth and not a lot of time in your schedule?
Are you afraid of losing your teeth?
Do you need one or more dental crowns and don’t have a lot of time in your schedule?
You don’t have to wait weeks anymore to get a natural-looking crown. Spa dentaire Laurier’s “One-visit crown” procedure allows for the restoration of damaged or worn teeth in a magnificent and efficient manner.
What is a One-visit crown?
Dental crowns (sometimes called “caps”) protect and consolidate teeth. This can help save teeth that are extremely worn, decayed or broken. Crowns are made of IPS e.max porcelain with the help of CAD/CAM (computer-assisted design and creation) CEREC dental technology.
If you have a cavity on part of a tooth, it is also possible to use this technology as a very high quality dental filling that will last many years.
The advantages of One-visit crowns.
- Practicality—Dr Comeau’s dental clinic is equipped with CEREC technology. Contrary to traditional crowns, which necessitate two visits, this procedure allows for the fabrication and moulding of a custom-made crown while you wait.
- Comfort — Since the crown is placed on the same day the tooth is prepared, there is no need to wear a temporary crown between visits. Temporary crowns may irritate gums and become unstable, and even come off at awkward moments.
- Composition — One-visit crowns contain no metals. They are made of the highest quality ceramic and have a natural appearance.
- Precision—CAD/CAM technology uses 3D videos produced by an optical digitization of your teeth. The computer then creates a dental restoration that precisely adapts to your natural tooth and your chewing style, offering you an excellent protection and optimal comfort.
How long does this type of crown last?
You may consider your “one-visit crown” as a natural tooth. Floss daily and brush your teeth at least twice a day, preferably with an electric toothbrush. This will help prevent any possible sickness of the gums or new cavities. If you care about your dental hygiene, this type of crown can last ten to twenty years.
Above all, let Dr Comeau know if you grind your teeth or have a tendency to grit. The pressure exerted by grinding or gritting teeth can damage your crown. We will propose solutions to help you preserve your crowns.
