Is your smile filled with stained, bent, crooked, cracked, or chipped teeth that make it not much of a beautiful smile at all? For those of us who have any or all of these dental deficiencies in our mouths, there's a common solution that can shore it all up: dental crowns.
At the office of Ronald L. Morse, DDS, PC, patients suffering from bad teeth find lasting solutions for patching up and restoring their smile back to full beauty. That's because Dr. Morse and his staff are well-versed in the placement of dental crowns, which are small "caps" placed atop broken or disfigured teeth.
Dr. Morse even offers E4D™ technology on site. This innovative dental technology is the future of dentistry, and allows a high-tech analysis of patients' teeth. The E4D™ uses computer-aided design (CAD) and manufacturing (CAM) that allows dentists to retrieve digital impressions of a patient's dental profile. This means no awkward impression process needs to be used. E4D™ brings the analog crown creation process, which once took days to complete, into the 21st century of no mess and quick turnaround.
This technique puts the crown creation process on the fast track, and it can expedite and improve upon the traditional veneer and filling process as well. In fact, the E4D™ is so powerful that numerous dental restorations can be created during the same visit.
Once the crown is ready to be made, it is constructed from a very strong material, identical in appearance to natural teeth and just as reliable. E4D is fast, too, as patients who need crowns can get theirs in one day at Dr. Morse's office in Lakewood, CO.
For more information on dental crowns, and why they're one of the leading options for restoring your smile, give Dr. Morse a call at (303) 279-6929, and begin your journey to having more beautiful teeth today!
CAD/CAM Technology Improves Dental Care for Lakewood, CO Patients!
Computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) is used in dentistry to provide a range of dental restorations, such as dental crowns, dental veneers and dental implants. CAD/CAM dental restorations are milled from solid blocks of ceramic or composite resin that closely match the basic shade of the restored tooth.
Both Dr. Ronald Morse & team utilize CAD/CAM technology to improve cosmetic dentistry and general dentistry in our Lakewood office so that our patients can receive the care they need without having to visit multiple locations. Through this improvement in technology, Dr. Morse is able to create dental crowns in Lakewood in one easy visit. With only one visit needed to create a patient’s ceramic crowns means fewer shots, less drilling, and less time out of their busy schedule for dental care.
Other benefits of utilizing CAD/CAM for patients in Lakewood in need of dental crowns, include:
- No gooey impressions
- No temporary crowns
- Tooth colored ceramic material
- Conservative restorations retain more healthy tooth structure
Only our dentists can determine if same day crowns with CAD/CAM technology are right for you. With CAD/CAM, Dr. Morse and team can achieve the same quality and esthetic in a single visit.
