Porcelain One Day dental crowns (iTero) available with Dublin, CA, area dentist
Dental restorations are commonly used to keep the smile beautiful while protecting the teeth and strengthening them for improved function. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala of StarBrite Dental in Dublin, CA use dental restorations regularly to repair imperfections and damage that can occur to the natural teeth. One common dental restoration used is the dental crown. But the team at StarBrite Dental use Itero Scanning technology to offer same-day dental crowns for new and established patients.
What is a dental crown?
Our dentists at StarBrite Dental describe the dental crown as a restoration used to cover the exposed portion of the tooth above the gumline. The crown is made in many different scenarios. Below are a few examples of patients who might benefit from the fabrication and placement of a dental crown, or cap, over a natural tooth:
- A tooth has a large filling that compromises the structure and integrity of the tooth
- A patient has had root canal therapy and needs to protect the weakened tooth structure
- A patient has trauma to a tooth that needs coverage
- A tooth root replacement, known as a dental implant, is placed and requires a crown to function as a false tooth
What are the benefits of One day dental crowns?
Traditional dentists often require several weeks from start to finish to complete the process of placing a new dental crown. With Itero and in-house crown milling, this can be shortened to minutes! Patients have their natural tooth prepared, and then digital impressions are taken and transferred to the Milling machine. Specialized software creates a 3D image which is used to mill a dental crown from a block of porcelain while patients wait. The dentist can bond the dental crown into place during the same visit, saving everyone time and money! Porcelain dental crowns are just as strong, durable, and natural-looking as those made in a dental laboratory.
