Same Day Dental Crowns
Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “pasted on gold” crowns to make the smile appear “as new”. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite. We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using this technology. These treatments are used for a long-lasting correction of major dental problems. It is usual for these treatments to last for 20 to 30 years, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get.
Key Benefits of Dental Crowns

Intraoral Trios Scanner
We use the most advanced dental impression technique to be introduced in decades to take an impression of your mouth. Using today’s technological advancements, the state-of-the-art TRIOS 3Shape® scanner provides an alternate method to taking impressions of the jaw, tooth, or teeth, for implant treatment planning, dental crowns & dental implant crowns, dental bridges and partial dentures. The scanner delivers a superior result for our clinicians and is more comfortable for the patient.
Planmeca PlanMill 40
Using CAD/CAM technology, the scanner provides our dentists with a high quality digital impression. A prepared 3D image of the tooth is shown both in color and in real time on our computer screen. The need to retake impressions due to material set up complications is eliminated. And with excellent color-matching technology, the scanner selects the tooth shade, which results in a more accurate shade match. The scanned result is sent to our laboratory via secured online communication, reducing turnaround time. Equally important – the accuracy of the digital impression is greatly improved over traditional impressions.
Computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology has been revolutionizing many industries, including dentistry. Remember when it used to take two separate appointments to get a dental crown? Even just a few years ago, patients had to endure mouthfuls of messy impression materials and wearing temporaries for weeks at a time. Now, with our Planmeca PlanMill 40, it is all a thing of the past!
Dr. Walls can now complete beautiful restorations like crowns in-office, in only one appointment!
