Previously, it was necessary to place a temporary crown on a tooth to protect it while the lab created a final restoration, which could take up to two weeks or more. Temporary crowns are notorious for coming off and feeling a bit bulky because they are essentially placeholders and not of the same quality as final crowns.
Toothsavers Dentists have implemented the latest ceramic technology into our Mount Annan dental clinic to eliminate the need for a dental lab to create a final restoration. We use digital impressions to scan the tooth and upload the information into our computer-aided design software where your restoration design is processed before being sent to our in-house milling machine. Similar to a 3-D printer, the ceramic mill will create a durable, aesthetic crown out of a single piece of ceramic.
Because our dentists oversee the entire crown creation in a single visit, patients enjoy fewer complications from lab-related errors and can leave the dental clinic with their final restoration in one appointment.
Not only does this reduce the time patients spend in the chair, but it also provides beautiful results for cosmetic cases.
Our dentists can create indirect fillings and veneers in a single visit as well.
