What To Know About Same-Day Crowns

Did you know that you can now get a permanent dental crown on the very same day? 

You have a broken tooth that could benefit from a dental crown but perhaps you’ve been putting it off because you know it’s going to involve coming back and forth to the dentist’s office for several weeks. However, what if we told you that our Columbia, SC, dentist Dr. Joel Johnson can now design, make, and place your crown in just a single visit thanks to Planmeca E4D Technologies System?

What is the Planmeca E4D Technologies System? 

Technology has made it possible for our Columbia, SC, dental team to create a mini dental lab right here in the office. Now, instead of turning to an outside dental lab to craft your inlay/only, crown or veneers, we can now craft them in-house in just a single visit. You no longer have to come back to the office for a final fitting and to have your crown placed, we will do all of this in one appointment.

What makes same-day crowns unique? 

There are many reasons to consider same-day crowns. Here are just some of the amazing benefits of same-day crowns:

  • Thanks to state-of-the-art laser technology, we can now gather more precise measurements of your teeth to provide a crown that is perfectly shaped to your smile’s shape and needs
  • The Planmeca E4D Technologies System takes digital impressions of your teeth, so you never have to worry about those cumbersome trays or messy impressions anymore
  • You also don’t have to wear those awkward temporary crowns anymore since we are able to craft and place your crown in just a single visit
  • Getting same-day crowns can save you a lot of time, making it easy to get the dental restoration your smile needs but without eating up too much time of your already busy schedule
  • The crowns and restorations that are made are also incredibly durable and stain resistant
  • We choose the appropriate shade of porcelain that most closely matches the color of your natural smile before placing it into the milling machine, which will chisel out your new tooth
