Greenville, SC area patients can enjoy same day dental crowns at Palmer Distinctive Dentistry
At Palmer Distinctive Dentistry, Drs. John Palmer and Daniel Knause ensure patients have access to the treatments they need to achieve optimal dental health and wellness. Sometimes, this means that certain restorations need to be placed to protect the teeth and restore the smile’s appearance after decay, disease, or injury. One of the most popular restorations used for patients in the Greenville, SC area is the dental crown.
Dental crowns are often called “caps.” They cover the entire visible area of the tooth to add an extra layer of protection and strength. In our facility, we utilize a material called zirconia. This type of ceramic is extremely strong and closely mimics the appearance of natural tooth enamel. It is safe to use within the smile, unlike metals used by many other dentists in the community.
Drs. John Palmer and Daniel Knause can provide these restorations in just one appointment. Other dental offices rely on a dental ceramist that may be located states away to create their restorations. However, we take impressions for our patients right in the dental chair, digitize them, and then fabricate their new restoration in-house while patients rest. Most times this can be done within 20 minutes. Patients can have preparation, creation, and placement of their dental crowns within one visit, which is unheard of in many area practices. This is all done with CEREC technology, which allows dentists to mill restorations in their office.
Most patients are appropriate candidates for dental crowns. If it is found that a dental crown is not conservative enough, patients may consider alternatives such as inlays and onlays. They are also made of zirconia and can be fabricated with our CEREC machine. The quality of these restorations are just as high as those available through ceramists.
