Same Day Dental Crowns for Irvine and Orange County Residents
At Smile by Design, we understand that your time is a precious commodity. This is among the many reasons that our practice incorporates the latest in dental technology, allowing our patients to receive the care they need quickly and efficiently. In order to help you maintain your busy schedule, the team at Smile by Design utilizes state-of-the-art E4D technology, a system that effectively delivers same-day porcelain restorations.
Same Day Crown Procedure
When you come to Dr. Choi for a crown, you can be certain you’ll receive care that is as professional as it is compassionate. If your tooth is severely decayed or cracked, Dr. Choi will need to restore its health prior to preparing your new crown. An impression of the tooth guarantees that your new crown will fit seamlessly alongside your other teeth and correctly conforms to your bite.
Using E4D scanning, Dr. Choi captures a digital image of your teeth and the surrounding gum and jaw structure. This data can be easily manipulated and displayed with precision clarity for more accurate assessment as compared to traditional impression molds. Your custom restoration is designed and fabricated right here in our office while you relax; there is no need for any temporary restorations or a second visit to complete your procedure.
Metal-Free Dental Restorations Faster Than Ever
Durable and lifelike in its qualities, dental porcelain is commonly used to restore and repair teeth that have been damaged due to injury or decay. When the structural stability of a tooth is compromised, Dr. Choi may recommend a metal-free dental crown designed and fabricated using E4D technology. Custom-colored to seamlessly blend with the rest of your smile, your porcelain crown fits over your damaged tooth like a cap. This crown looks and feels like your natural teeth and helps to preserve more of your natural dentition. Inlays and onlays are used when the damage sustained does not warrant a full crown.
In addition to restoring damaged teeth, crowns also replace missing teeth. A crown can be used to complete a dental implant or an implant-retained bridge that replaces several teeth. Likewise, crowns are placed on teeth that lie on either side of a missing tooth in order to secure the pontic, or artificial tooth, that bridges the gap.
Porcelain is also frequently used specifically to improve the aesthetic appeal of a smile affected by chips, cracks, gaps, and deep stains. Using E4D technology, Dr. Choi can transform your smile in as little as an hour using porcelain veneers. Whereas the process to create and place veneers typically requires a minimum of two visits, E4D allows you to leave our office after just one appointment with a newly revitalized smile.
Modern, Natural-Looking Dental Crowns
The wonderful characteristic about crowns today is that they are not only restorative, they also have a valuable cosmetic quality. Dr. Choi uses either all porcelain or porcelain fused to metal crowns. Together, you will decide with Dr. Choi which option is best for your particular condition. Porcelain imitates the reflective quality of teeth’s natural enamel. Moreover, Dr. Choi will carefully choose the shade of porcelain that matches the color of your natural teeth, so that your crowns are indistinguishable from the rest of your smile. As an Orange County prosthodontist and cosmetic dentist, Dr. Choi will make sure your crowns enhance your smile naturally and beautifully.
