If you’ve ever had a crown placed, you’re familiar with the traditional process: You come to the office and the dentist shapes your tooth, takes a bunch of impressions, places a temporary crown, and sends you on your way to wait for the lab to do their job. In a few weeks, your crown gets back from the lab, and you return to the office to take off the temporary and have the new crown placed.
While this process is adequate and you do eventually get a custom-made crown, it can be time consuming and you run the risk of having to return to the office (yet again) if the lab didn’t make the crown exactly right.
At Shapiro Family Dentistry, we know there’s a better way, and we’re excited to be able to offer it to our patients.
At our practicee in Boca Raton and West Palm Beach, one day crowns make life simpler and much more convenient for our patients. Using special software, we can actually create your crowns right here in our office during your appointment. This means that you can leave our office in just one appointment with your permanent, custom-made crown.
We can use one day crowns to treat a range of issues, both aesthetic and functional. Broken, cracked, or otherwise damaged teeth will benefit from crown placement, and crowns can also conceal teeth that are unusually shaped or severely discolored. Your tooth will be milled from a solid block of durable dental porcelain that perfectly matches the natural shade of your teeth. Our goal is for your crown to fit so well and look so realistic that nobody will ever know you’ve had dental work done!
