Natural-Looking Crowns Made While You Wait
xYou know the routine. You visit the dentist. You need a crown. The dentist prepares the tooth, takes an impression, and installs a temporary crown. You then wait two weeks to return to the dentist, and he installs the permanent crown. And if the fit isn't perfect, it goes back to the lab and you wait again. And return to the dentist again.
But now, that's all changed. With new technology, our doctors can reduce that two-week waiting period and the two or three office visits to just a single visit! Carestream Dental's amazing intra-oral camera and on-site computer-aided design and milling device allow us to create a permanent crown in just a few minutes. Now, there's no more waiting for the lab and no return trips to the dentist. Our patients love it!
Carestream Dental's system allows us to repair a damaged tooth in about an hour. In most cases, gooey impressions and temporary crowns are not needed, and patients are thrilled with the long-lasting, high-quality ceramic restoration that is indistinguishable from their real teeth.
The CS 3500 intra-oral camera takes true-color, 3D images of the tooth. The pictures are then displayed on a computer screen, enabling us to design the restoration, which the CS 3000 mill immediately creates on site. Once it's complete, we bond your beautiful new restoration to the surface of the old tooth. All in the same day!
