Kalispell Dentist Same Day Crowns with CEREC®: 3-D Printing For Your Teeth!

3-D PRINTING MIGHT SEEM like the newest technological innovation, but it has actually been around since the 1980s, when Chuck Hull printed a cup meant for washing out irritated eyes. His process is still the one we use today to print all kinds of things, including dental crowns!

The traditional procedure for making crowns is to fill trays with a putty-like substance. This goes in the patient’s mouth to make an impression, which then goes to a lab where they use it to make the crowns or implants. This process requires you, the patient, to come back for a second visit. Luckily, Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics® (CEREC) streamlines that process, making it easier for dentists and patients alike!

How The Process Works
Once a tooth has been diagnosed for a Crown/Onlay/Inlay/Custom Implant Abutment the first step is scanning. We use a State-of-the-art 3D digital intraoral camera called the OmniCam. We scan the upper and lower arch as well as the bite. Once the tooth or teeth have been prepped another scan is then taken of the tooth. Then it’s design time. Once the design is complete the information is transferred to the CEREC Milling Machine. Once the crown has been fabricated we then complete the initial try in to verify fit. Then it’s off to the customization area where the magic happens. We are able to customize and glaze the crown to match your existing teeth. From there it’s placed into the furnace. The crown is then ready to be chemically bonded to the prep and you’re out the door all in one visit!

    hello everyone my name is Alonzo Perry i am here to share my testimony on how my daughter was saved from tooth pain
    and tooth decay it all started as a joke when she was complaining that she had problems on chewing i thought it was a
    minor problem until it escalated to the extent she couldn’t sleep i contacted my doctor they tried their possible best
    and they came up with an idea that her tooth should be removed i didn’t buy the idea i kept on searching for a cure
    until i came across a dentist called doctor Briant i contacted him and he told me there is a way to treat my daughter
    tooth decay without removing them so i was pretty convinced by what he said we should get when my daughter used the mouth wash that
    was attached to what we ordered, to my greatest sup priced huge worm came out from my daughters tooth it now 4 weeks
    now my daughter can sleep fine now without pains am grateful doctor Briant for giving my daughter another chance to live fine
