Get your crown/cap done the same day!
In the past crowns took at least 2 weeks with a temporary and then the final placement. We are proud to announce the latest advancement in CAD/CAM technology to our office. The E4D crown milling technology allows a patient to have a crown prepared and placed the same day. In cooperation with 3M and E4D, our patients now have a top grade quality crown with excellent functional, durable, crown materials made by one of the world’s most renowned companies, 3M.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that encase natural teeth that have been damaged. Crowns are generally used to improve the appearance of worn or misshapen teeth since weakened teeth are more susceptible to decay and breakage. They are also used with dental implants or to secure a dental bridge.
Before restoring the appearance of a tooth with a crown, Dr. Gardner will make an impression of the tooth that needs fixing. This allows him to create a cap that will fit perfectly over your existing tooth. He will also take the time to carefully match the color of your crown to your teeth so that the crown looks as natural as any other tooth in your mouth.
To make your dental crown last as long as possible, avoid eating “gummy” foods, like caramel, and raw vegetables, like carrots. These types of foods can cause your crown to break or fall off. Additionally, it is important to follow good oral hygiene practices and maintain regular cleanings with your dentist. With proper care, dental crowns can last as long as 15 years.
At the Dental Office of Dr. William Gardner, helping people look and feel their best is one of our primary goals. To this end, Dr. Gardner uses state-of-the-art equipment, like an E4D machine. The E4D machine is a crown milling machine that enables Dr. Gardner to create his own crowns for patients, eliminating the need for a temporary crown. When you want natural looking restorations and same-day results, contact Dr. Gardner.
