How Same Day Crowns from your dentist in South Glastonbury, CT, can improve your smile

Dental crowns are an excellent solution to protect damaged, worn-down teeth, but did you know it’s possible to have a new crown in one dental-crownsday? It’s true! There is a revolutionary new technology brought to you by Planmeca, which enables you to have a new, beautiful crown in a single day! Dr. Steven Hinchey at Glastonbury Center For Dental Medicine in Glastonbury, CT, offers Same Day crowns using Planmeca technology to give you a beautiful, strong smile.

Planmeca technology makes crowns use a unique technology known as CAD/CAM (computer-assisted design/computer-assisted manufacture) to create Same Day Crowns. This advanced system uses a digital camera to capture images of your teeth, negating the need for those messy traditional impressions. Capturing these images is much faster and can provide our Glastonbury, CT, general dentist with the exact measurements of your tooth to then create a restoration with the precise fit.

Just consider these important benefits you will enjoy when you choose Same Day crowns at your Glastonbury, CT, dentist:

  • Your crown will look completely natural because it has been precisely matched to the color of your adjacent teeth.
  • You will receive your crown the same day your tooth is prepared, so there is no more waiting for your crown to come back from a dental laboratory.
  • Your crown will fit comfortable from day one.
  • You won’t have to wear an unsightly, uncomfortable temporary crown, because you will leave the office with your new dental crown in place.

The high-grade dental ceramic doesn’t pick up stains the way natural tooth enamel does. That means your crown will give you years of beautiful use, even if you drink coffee or smoke.
