Same-Day Dental Crowns
If you need a dental crown, talk to the dentists and team at Pleasant Avenue Dentistry. We use CAD/CAM technology to create same-day crowns in Park Rapids, Minnesota. This system allows us to give you your new smile in one visit to our office. Call 218-237-7200 and we can schedule your appointment with Dr. Ben Sitz, Dr. Elise Soulliere or Dr. Carolyn Disse.
CAD/CAM (Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing) is a versatile technology that can be used in a variety of restorative treatments. Using CAD/CAM technology, our skilled dentists can design and create a variety of restorations, including fillings, veneers and porcelain crowns, as well as plan a more precise and effective treatment to meet your needs. State-of-the-art equipment allows us to produce any single-tooth restoration the same day as your procedure so that you can complete your appointment in one day rather than stretching out your treatment over two or more visits to our office.
During your appointment, our dentists will:
Examine your teeth to determine an appropriate treatment plan
Remove any weakened or decayed tooth material
Capture a digital picture of your mouth
Convert the picture into a 3D model on the computer screen using CAD/CAM software
Create your restoration using the 3D model
Immediately mill your restoration from a block of material that matches the color of your natural teeth
Within a few minutes, your new restoration will be complete! Our dentists will check to ensure that it fits properly, polish it and bond it into place.
