Technologically-advanced single crown impression procedures have significantly reduced the time it takes to cap your teeth. Having a crown fitted can take several visits to your dental clinic. It typically involves taking many impressions to ensure accuracy. Today however, it is possible to use the latest dental techniques and materials to achieve the perfect fit via a single impression.
A crown is a dental restoration that caps a damaged, malformed or misaligned tooth. Made from porcelain/ceramic, gold or other metal alloys, it is mostly used to protect teeth with large cavities or a dental implant. It may also be used for cosmetic purposes, to improve the appearance of your teeth and smile. Since the fit of your crown depends on an accurate impression, this is one of the most important steps in the restoration procedure.
Single impressions have revolutionized the dental crown procedure which was previously tiresome and uncomfortable for patients as well as stressful and time-consuming for dentists. Challenges ranged from selecting the right impression tray to preventing bleeding during retraction (removal) and using the right material to capture a sharp impression. Thanks to single crown impressions, patients now enjoy superior prosthetic restorations with reduced time in the dental chair.
