The biggest shift in dentistry has been convenience. You know, my goal is to limit treatment time as much as humanly possible to give people a better result.
At some dental offices, it takes several weeks to get a crown from an off-site lab. But you won’t have to deal with the inconvenience of waiting when you choose Macatawa Smiles. Dr. Habecker offers same-day crowns, which can be placed in one appointment.
This saves you the hassle of dealing with a temporary crown while you’re waiting for the permanent crown.
Here’s what else you should know about same-day crowns.
Done in One Appointment
Our dental crowns are made by our very own dentist under our own roof. This means that you’ll be able to go home with your new dental crown in one appointment instead of waiting on a third-party dental lab.
Here’s what two of our patients have to say about their experience at Macatawa Smiles.
During my root canal, the tooth was being made at the same time so I did not have to come back for a second visit.
After a root canal, a CEREC crown strengthens and restores the appearance of the tooth so you can leave our office with a healthy smile.
Comfortable and Convenient
In the past, dentists would use a tray filled with thick putty to take dental impressions. They would insert the tray into your mouth, then press it firmly against the roof of your mouth.
Not only was this uncomfortable, but it often triggered the patient’s gag reflex. While some dentists still take physical molds, Dr. Habecker takes non-invasive.
During your appointment, he’ll wave a small handheld scanner over your teeth. This scanner will then take accurate and highly precise images of your teeth and send them to his computer.
Dr. Habecker will then use a shade guide to select a ceramic block that best matches the rest of your teeth. That way, your new dental crown will blend in with the rest of your smile.
Previously, I had one crown that was done and it was…a month-long process. Here, it’s outstanding. You sit in the chair, you wait, and an hour later you have it and you’re done.
After designing your new crown, Dr. Habecker will send it along to the milling machine in our office. The machine will then sculpt your new tooth out of a solid block of ceramic.
Once the crown is ready, Dr. Habecker will cement it onto your tooth. The result is a healthier, more attractive smile.
