ITERO DENTAL CROWNS AND GLIDEWELL MILLING
Dr. Munira Lokhandwala believes in providing StarBrite Dental Dublin, patients with a beautiful smile they can be proud of. You will require restorations following trauma or injury to your smile, and these restorations need to blend in with the natural smile and look beautiful as ever! That is why Dr. Munira Lokhandwala uses some of the newest technologies to repair the smile with dental crowns.
Dental crowns are porcelain restorations used for a variety of reasons and placed to:
- Cover imperfections of the smile
- Help in repairing a tooth after an injury has happened
- Provide structure to a broken or chipped tooth to keep it from breaking further and requiring extraction
- Protect a tooth
- Cover a permanently stained tooth
- Restore a dental implant
- Protect a tooth after root canal therapy
Dental crowns play an indispensable role in general and restorative dentistry. However, when patients visit a traditional dentist, 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 to have their new crown bonded in place.
At StarBrite Dental Dublin, we use iTero CAD/CAM technology combined with state-of-the-art Glidewell milling machines 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. The advanced, on-site Glidewell milling machine uses to manufacture a new restoration from a block of porcelain in as little as 15 minutes.
