Hi, I’m Dr. Jason Mount and today I want to tell you a little bit about Same Day Crowns. For years in dentistry, we’ve been doing crowns and it’s been a pretty good experience but we’ve got something going on now that makes it such a better experience. Now we do not have to do the GUI impressions anymore, so you don’t have a mouthful of material, and the other thing that people have always disliked it is the temporary crowns that you have to wear for a couple of weeks when the crown goes off to the lab, no more of that either.
With same-day crowns you come in, we do the same type of work on your tooth as we were doing before, but now instead of putting a temporary crown on there and waiting a couple of weeks and coming back to us. Now we’re making the crown while you’re here. What we do is instead of the GUI impressions, like I was telling you about, we actually have a really small, like a little wand, that goes inside your mouth and it just takes digital pictures of your tooth. It’s kind of like taking a three-dimensional image of your tooth with photos so instead of having a mouthful of the gooey stuff, now you just have a few pictures here and there. That’s how we gather the information to make your crown.
