Crowns strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure and can improve the appearance of your smile.
OneVisit Crown Procedure
The highest quality dental restorations IN JUST ONE VISIT to the dentist.
Most dental restorative methods require more than one visit to the dentist. This means that on the first visit, you get an injection of anesthesia, your tooth prepared, an impression taken, and a temporary restoration put on your tooth. You make a second appointment for a couple of weeks later, get another injection, have the temporary pried off, and have a permanent restoration put on.
With OneVisit by Benco Dental, the procedure is done in 1 single appointment, start to finish. The procedure can simultaneously design and mill, enabling our dentist to prepare perfectly fitted ceramic restorations in 1 patient visit, with huge savings TO THE PATIENT in time and laboratory costs.
First, will examine the tooth and determines the appropriate treatment. It could be a simple filling, or a full crown, depending on how much healthy tooth structure is remaining. Next, an anesthetic is administered and your tooth is prepared for the restoration, removing decayed and weakened tooth tissue.
An Optical Impression with the 3MTM True Definition Scanner will be taken of the prepared tooth (instead of filling a tray with impression "goop" that you must bite into and hold in your mouth until it hardens). A color video camera is then used to take a digital picture of your tooth.
This only takes a minute or two.
The OneVisit IOS software takes a digital color image and converts it into a 3-dimensional virtual model on the computer screen.
The restoration is then designed using the IOS Fast Design Software. The restoration design data is sent to a separate milling machine in the office.
On Site Milling Machine
Next, the milling machine helps our dentist create the restoration for your tooth.
A ceramic block that matches your tooth shade is placed in the milling machine. About 10 - 20 minutes later, your all-ceramic, tooth-colored restoration is finished and ready to bond in place.
The restoration is inserted into your mouth to ensure proper fit and bite. It is is then polished and bonded to the prepared tooth.
