1-Hour Crowns by Dr. Ackerman
Traditional crown placement takes two appointments, weeks apart. But, Dr. Ackerman’s patients only need one visit. Dental crowns are fabricated and fitted in about an hour.
- Single Visit Convenience
- Minimal Grinding of Healthy Enamel
- No Messy Impressions With Bulky Trays to Gag on
- No Temporaries
- All Done in About an Hour
We use a 3D Scanner Wand to digitally sweep the section of your mouth where a dental restoration goes.
The computer then builds a 3D model of your mouth on a screen right in front of your eyes. Using the model, Dr. Ackerman will prepare your restoration on the computer. Designs are fully functional and sized to fit precisely in your mouth.
From there, the digital file is networked to a precision milling robot that will sculpt a color-matched porcelain block into the final restoration. This restoration is permanent and on par with what we would expect from a dental lab.
After a test-fitting and any final adjustments, Dr. Ackerman bonds the crown to the tooth.
