Got a busy schedule? Dr. Randy and the team at Houska Dental can help. We offer same-day crowns, so contact us today to restore your smile and get the care you need.
To prepare for the procedure, Dr. Randy will numb your mouth and trim your tooth. Then, he will use a hand-held intraoral scanner to take digital impressions of your teeth.
Dr. Randy will use the scans to design your crown. He'll then load a tooth-colored block of porcelain into the CAD/CAM machine which will carve out the crown based on his design.
Dr. Randy will remove the crown from the CAD/CAM machine, check it to make sure it fits, and then bond it in place to complete the procedure.
Normally, crowns take at least two appointments over a period of 1-2 weeks or longer, since the crown has to be built at an outside dental lab. However, CAD/CAM dentistry allows us to offer crown treatment in just a single, 1-2 hour appointment. Whether you need a crown to repair a damaged or decayed tooth or you’re replacing an old, worn-out crown, this makes it easier to fit your treatment into your busy schedule.
Normally, you would get a temporary resin crown to protect your tooth while you wait for your final crown to be made. These can be bulky, uncomfortable, and unnatural-looking, and are more difficult to brush and floss. They also may fall off of your tooth prematurely. No temporary crowns are needed with same-day CAD/CAM crowns from Dr. Randy.
Many patients find trays to be uncomfortable, especially if they have strong gag reflexes. Instead of bite trays and dental putty, Dr. Randy uses a hand-held digital scanner to take digital impressions of your smile.
I actually love coming to the dentist thanks to Dr. Randy. Would highly recommend.
This dentist and his staff are amazing. I was traveling from Pa and broke a tooth. They got me in, extracted the tooth and were very reasonably priced. The staff and dentist answered all questions and were great. I cant say enough good about them.
My experience here has been without a doubt the best experience I have ever had with a dental office. Everyone here is friendly and they recognized me on my second visit! Questions are answered and concerns are addressed in a friendly manner.
