Dr. Sedwick is excited to announce that we now have a Glidewell.io same-day crown system!
Patients can receive their crowns in only one appointment. That is just one of the many benefits! Patients will no longer have to take uncomfortable silicone impressions, be anesthetized at multiple appointments, or worry about a temporary crown coming off while waiting for a dental lab to fabricate their permanent crown. The Glidewell.io uses an intraoral camera to scan the prepared tooth into a computer system. After the tooth is scanned, the crown is then designed on the computer. Once the designing process is complete, the crown is ready to be milled out in the milling machine. The milling machine will make the crown out of a solid zirconia block (the strongest non-metal crown material available). After the crown has been milled, we check to make sure it is a perfect fit. The crown is then ready to be cemented. After checking your bite, if everything is perfect you are ready to go with no second appointment. We have been very pleased with our Glidewell.io crowns, and you will be too!
When her dentist was able to use digital technology to provide a crown for her in just one appointment, it gave Anna a whole new outlook on how fast and convenient dentistry can be. She’s thrilled to have received the same superb quality care and results in only one visit.
When my dentist told me I needed a crown, I was concerned about the time I’d have to take off from work. I was extremely happy when I was advised that I’d get my crown that same day without missing any additional work.
