Same Day Crowns, Veneers and Onlays
What is it?
Using the latest laser and CAD/CAM technology, Dr Hinchey can take digital images of prepared teeth, design crowns and veneers on a computer screen, and mill beautiful porcelain crowns and onlays ready for placing in your mouth.
What is in it for me?
While it still takes time, you do not have to wait weeks to complete treatment.
Depending on your dental situation, you can schedule your appointments in one of three ways:
- One long appointment - we prepare your tooth and then you can wait while it is designed and milled – bring a book, music, your lap top or knitting – we will keep you comfortable. The wait time may be 1 ½ to two hours.
- See you in the morning – see you later in the day. We prepare your tooth – you go to work or run some errands, and then later in the day we insert your new crown.
- Old school – two appointments on different days. This works just as well, but you do not have to wait one to two weeks for a dental laboratory to send us your crown.
The choice is yours – the fee is the same
