Restore Your Beautiful Smile in Just One Visit with Dental Crowns
If you’ve had root canal treatment or you have one or more teeth with moderate to severe damage or decay, you may be in need of dental crowns. These are prosthetic teeth anchored onto your existing teeth, and once they’re in place, they look and feel exactly like healthy, natural teeth. They are custom shaped to fit with your bite, and they’re color matched to your natural teeth.
“My last visit was for a crown and it was incredible to have the procedure done in one day! Throughout the entire procedure, I was very comfortable and had no pain the day-of or the next day. The fit is perfect! Hats off to Dr. Erlander and Judy and the entire staff at HollowBrook. Thank you!” -Joan
What Sets Our Dental Crowns Apart?
Dental crowns have been incredible tools for restoring healthy, vibrant smiles for years. However, when you visit most dentists for crowns, the process takes at least two visits. At HollowBrook Family Dentistry, we have an on-site laboratory and an amazing full-time lab technician who creates E4D dental crowns for our patients.
While other dentists have to schedule an appointment to take bite impressions and send them off to a laboratory, we can do the whole procedure in a single visit. This not only eliminates the inconvenience of clearing your schedule for two potentially lengthy dental visits, but it also saves you money.
When you choose our practice in Colorado Springs, you won’t have any need for a temporary crown while you wait on your permanent crown to be made. Thanks to superior E4D technology, your dental crowns will be created and milled while you wait. Then they can be perfectly fitted with the rest of your teeth, all in one single visit to our office.
Not only can you have your teeth prepared and your permanent dental crowns placed all in the same day, but the process for creating your crowns is more efficient and more pleasant at HollowBrook Family Dentistry. Traditionally, your dentist would take a physical impression of your teeth using a gummy substance. This can be inaccurate and really unpleasant for the patient.
Instead of using this kind of substance, we take digital impressions of your teeth and your bite impression. Through the use of laser technology, we can get a more accurate impression in less time without leaving anything up to chance and without filling part of your mouth up with goop. Then our lab technician uses that digital impression to create perfectly shaped dental crowns while you wait, and we can complete the entire process in a single appointment.
Taking Care of Your Dental Crowns
After the procedure is complete, your crowns will be safely and permanently cemented in place. You can take care of them by brushing and flossing your teeth as normal and by visiting our office in Colorado Springs about once every six months for a cleaning and checkup. No other special treatment is necessary.
