If you have a weak tooth that needs a little extra protection, a broken or severely worn tooth, or a tooth with a large filling and little natural tooth structure left, then chances are you are a prime candidate for a dental crown. Traditionally, placing a dental crown involves shaping and preparing the tooth, performing a dental impression, and sending the mold of this impression to a dental laboratory to custom-create your crown. You can wear a temporary crown until you receive the permanent one, which is cemented to your tooth during your next visit. In the interest of optimizing our patients’ oral health, your Milford cosmetic dentists introduce new technology to provide strong, durable, custom-created dental crowns in just one office visit.
Same Day Dental Crowns
To prepare your tooth and craft a custom crown in the same day, innovative technology is required. This technology comes in the form of the Computer-Aided Design and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) system. The CAD/CAM machine scans an image of your tooth and sends the virtual data to a milling chamber. Following the data’s guidelines, the milling chamber carves the specified crown dimensions out of strong, durable dental porcelain. Without the need to send a dental mold to an outside laboratory, your porcelain dental crown can be fabricated while you remain in the office, and permanently placed during the same visit.

The addition of CAD/CAM technology to our office is a testament to the dedication that our dentists and our staff have for the wellbeing of our patients. We strive to make your visit as comfortable and quick as possible, so you can take care of your mouth without sacrificing unnecessary time.
