Single Visit Crowns with CAD-CAM Dentistry

Traditionally cracked or broken teeth required multiple procedures and appointments. With the latest technology, Annese DMD creates ceramic restorations to fix teeth in just a single visit.

Benefits of Single Visit Crowns

We utilize computer-assisted design (CAD) software and a dental milling machine (CAM) that creates custom ceramic restorations.

Convenient single appointment without need for followup
No temporary crown necessary
All ceramic crown is highly esthetic
Excellent fit and long lasting results

How do you make a single visit crown?

Single visit crowns are completed with the help of CAD-CAM technology. CAD-CAM means Computer Assisted Design and Computer Assisted Milling. The system has three major components:
Intraoral Digital Scanner: This device is home to a high-quality medical camera that takes many pictures and stitches them together to create a 3D image. The 3D image is an extremely accurate rendering of the patient's mouth, which the dentist uses to design the perfect ceramic restoration.
Three-dimensional CAD software: This software allows the dentist to visualize a patient's mouth in 3D and design a custom restoration, whether it be a crown or veneer, in a very short amount of time.
Milling machine: This unit actually manufactures the custom restoration from the dentist’s design. A ceramic block or disc corresponding with the patient’s tooth color is placed into the milling machine. Within 20 minutes, the milling device produces the restoration the dentist designed.

What happens in my single visit crown appointment?

The first step in the procedure is preparing the tooth for the restoration. Depending on your particular case, the dentist will take intraoral scans of the affected teeth.
These images are transposed onto the computer screen, where the dentist will view the tooth from every angle and design the final restoration. When the design is complete, it will be transmitted to the milling unit.
The dentist will insert a block of ceramic, matching your tooth color, into the milling machine which will then create the full crown, onlay, inlay, or veneer. Before affixing the restoration to the tooth, the dentist will try in the restoration. Once a perfect fit is established, the restoration will be polished and cemented to the tooth with bioactive dental cement.
