You may have been through the routine before. The dentist tells you that a broken tooth needs a crown. The tooth gets prepared, an impression is taken, and a temporary crown is installed. You then have to wait up to two weeks to return to the dentist for the installation of the permanent crown. If the fit isn't just right, sometimes it has to go back to the lab and you wait again. And return to the dentist again.
But now, that's all changed. Dr. Butler can reduce that two-week waiting period and the two or three office visits to ONE visit with new technology! The Planmeca FIT™ System is a computer-aided design and milling device that we have here in our office. It allows us to create a permanent crown on site. Forget about waiting for the lab or making return trips to the dentist. Patients love it!
The Planmeca FIT™ System eliminates the need for gooey impressions. It makes temporaries unnecessary, too, and enables us to satisfy patients seeking a long-lasting, esthetic alternative to silver or plastic fillings. To make the restoration, we use a special camera to take an accurate picture of the tooth. With the picture displayed on a computer monitor, we are able to design the restoration. Then the machine takes over and automatically creates it. Finally, we bond the new restoration to the surface of the old tooth. Easier, faster crowns will make your day! We will discuss which option best suits your needs before any treatment begins.
