Do you wish you could walk out of your dentist’s office with a brand new crown the same day you go in for treatment? Fortunately, John Abajian, DDS, offers same-day crowns and dental restorations with E4D technology at Esthetic Smiles in Oxnard, California. To learn more about same-day crowns, call the office or book an appointment online today.
Traditional crowns and bridges would require at least two visits to your dentist and could take weeks or months to complete. With cutting-edge E4D technology, Dr. Abajian and the team at Esthetic Smiles create custom crowns and dental restorations in a single visit.
A dental crown is a protective covering that restores a damaged tooth to its normal shape and size. You may need a crown to strengthen a tooth or improve its appearance. Crowns also cover dental implants and attach to bridges, which fill the gap left by a missing tooth.
Dr. Abajian and the team at Esthetic Smiles use E4D technology to make your same-day crowns. This method utilizes computer-aided design (CAD) to create detailed and precise models of your teeth.
Then, the computer uses that model to fabricate beautiful, natural-looking restorations of high-quality porcelain. The restoration matches your tooth color so perfectly that no one will realize it’s a crown.
In addition to crowns, Dr. Abajian uses E4D technology to create other same-day tooth restorations, including bridges, veneers, and dental inlays and onlays.
Same-day crowns offer many advantages compared with traditional tooth restorations. Most notably, a same-day crown eliminates the need for a second appointment. This saves both time and discomfort. It also means you don’t need to wear an awkward temporary crown in-between visits.
Additionally, advanced E4D computer scanning technology replaces traditional dental impressions, which involve biting into a mold to make a plaster model. The E4D software is both more precise and less messy than conventional dental impressions.
First, Dr. Abajian performs a dental exam and reviews your medical history. Then, he creates a personalized treatment plan for your same-day crown, bridge, or other restoration.
The process of getting a crown begins with numbing your mouth to reduce discomfort. Dr. Abajian removes any damaged tissues and dental structures and prepares your teeth for restoration.
He then uses the E4D software to capture an impression of your teeth and design a custom restoration. The team at Esthetic Smiles mills your crown from high-quality porcelain right in the office. This may take a few hours, but it’s dramatically faster than traditional crowns.
Before you leave the office, Dr. Abajian provides you with instructions on how to care for your new restoration at home.
