iTero Dental Crowns
Dr. Munira Lokhandwala believes in providing the patients of StarBrite Dental Dublin with a beautiful smile they can be proud of. When restorations must be made after trauma or injury, it is important for these restorations to blend in with the natural smile and look beautiful as ever! This is why Dr. Munira Lokhandwala uses some of the newest technologies to repair the smile with dental crowns.
Dental crowns are porcelain restorations that are used for a variety of reasons. They can be placed to:
- Cover imperfections of the smile
- Help in repairing a tooth after trauma has occurred
- Provide structure to a broken or chipped tooth to keep it from breaking further and requiring extracted
- Provide protection for a tooth
- Cover a permanently stained tooth
- Restore a dental implant
- Protect a tooth after root canal therapy
Dental crowns play an important role in general and restorative dentistry. However, when patients visit a traditional dentist, the process of receiving a dental crown can be lengthy. Patients must first have the tooth prepared with the removal of some of the tooth’s structure. Then, impressions are taken and sent to an outside laboratory where a ceramist fabricates a brand new crown. After a few weeks, patients return to the dental practice when their new crown is done to have it bonded in place.
At StarBrite Dental Dublin, we use Itero CAD/CAM technology to provide in-house restorations from porcelain. The process of receiving a dental crown at our practice is much faster and patients can enjoy the benefits of same-day dentistry. Itero allows Dr. Munira Lokhandwala and her team to provide digitized impressions which are used to mill a new restoration from a block of porcelain for a brand new crown in as little as 15 minutes.
In addition to the Itero system, we also utilize iTero, which is a method of taking 3D digital impressions to prepare for fabrication of crowns, bridges, veneers, and other restorations that are available at the practice of StarBrite Dental.
Dr. Munira Lokhandwala invests in her patients with some of the newest technologies to make achieving a more beautiful smile much more attainable.
