So many things can get done in a day. With the fast-paced lives that inhabitants of the 21st century lead, having a procedure drag on for more than just a couple of hours can prove to be extremely frustrating. Dr. Brad Pitts and his team at Brad Pitts Family and Cosmetic Dentistry understand just how you feel. So in the spirit of expediency when it comes to delivering quality dental care, Dr. Pitts has brought One-Visit Crowns to Lexington, SC.
What are One Visit Crowns?
One Visit Crowns mean exactly what their name implies — you can have crowns fabricated in just a couple of minutes and in just one visit to the dentist. This is a huge leap from having to wait for one to two weeks in between your first and second visits to the dentist. Not only will you have your smile ready by the time that you leave your dentist’s clinic, but this brings a whole myriad of benefits to your experience.
How are One Visit Crowns Made?
You will still have to go through the process of having the affected tooth shaved down in order to accommodate the crown or the veneer. However, when it comes time for you to have dental impressions made, your dentist will make use of CAD technology in order to make digital images of the affected tooth. The 3D image then allows the dentist to make a blueprint for the execution and completion of the finished dental work. Once your dentist is finished making the digital blueprints, the information is then sent to a milling device with the help of CAM technology. Overall, the technology will then allow for crowns to be milled in just 20 to 30 minutes, all in the comfort of your dentist’s clinic.
How soon can you get your One Visit Crowns?
You can have your crowns in just one visit to the dentist, and, in certain cases, in under just one hour. This cuts the treatment time significantly, and is perfect for individuals who may need to beat a deadline with regards to fixing their smiles. Also, because you can have your crown just mere minutes after the affected tooth has to be shaved down, this lessens the risk of sensitivity as well as infections due to having a compromised tooth. At the same time, having your crown ready almost immediately eliminates the need for temporaries, which can add on to the cost of the entire procedure.
Why should you opt for One Visit Crowns instead of the traditional porcelain crowns?
Aside from the more obvious benefit of having your smile treated at a faster rate, you will also benefit from a more accurate and precise fit with regards to your dental crown. Dr. Pitt of Brad Pitts Family and Cosmetic Dentistry aims to ensure that his patients receive the best quality of dental care and enjoy their new smiles from thereafter. With the help of One Visit Crowns, you’ll have just that.
