Dr. Joel Johnson Offers Patients Digital DentistryNew technology creates natural-looking crowns, veneers, and fillings in a single dental visit.
Joel E. Johnson DMD PA is pleased to offer same-day crowns, fillings, and veneers to qualifying patients. At the forefront of dental technology, Dr. Joel Johnson recently incorporated PlanScan into the treatment options available to his patients. As a result, Dr. Johnson can take a digital laser scan of the patient’s tooth and design and create a custom, permanent restoration in the dental office, all in a single appointment.
“We are so excited to bring this technology to our patients; the range of benefits we can now offer is more comprehensive and convenient,” said Dr. Johnson. The PlanScan allows Dr. Johnson to replace conventional impression methods that include an unpleasant material followed by an uncomfortable waiting period. The clean, fast digital laser scan is obtained in a few minutes through a series of photographic images taken in the mouth.
The scanned information is then transferred to the design center where a 3D model of the tooth is created chairside. Dr. Johnson can then design and customize the restoration to fit the patient’s unique characteristics, after which it is created in a milling unit right in Dr. Johnson’s dental office.
The final result is a natural-looking restoration that beautifully fits the surrounding teeth, making the crown, veneer or filling virtually undetectable. “The elimination of impressions, temporaries, second appointments, and waiting for the permanent restoration revolutionizes the entire dental experience for both Dr. Johnson and the patient. Patients will love watching their new tooth come to life, as well as the convenience of same day dentistry,” said Dr. Johnson. The E4D Dentist and PlanScan system empowers Dr. Johnson to treat his patients with ÂÂdentistry that truly fits their lifestyles.
