Easley Dental Center offers same day dentistry which refers to an innovative new brand of treatment that condenses some traditional procedures into a single office visit. Thanks to in-office dental CAD/CAM technology, patients can receive milled metal-free crowns in one office visit, while they wait.

Same Day Dentistry Procedure
After your Dr. Strange has examined your teeth and determined a same day CAD/CAM restoration is a treatment option, the area surrounding the affected tooth or teeth will be anesthetized and prepared for your metal-free restoration.

A digital impression is taken using an optical or laser scanner and entered into a computerized system. This system is used to create a virtual model of your teeth and design your crown. This process involves identifying the appropriate color, shape and biting/chewing surface for your restoration.

The design then is sent via wireless to a milling unit in our office that will fabricate the restoration in approximately 20 minutes. The metal-free materials used for CAD/CAM restorations include blocks of porcelain, composite and lithium disilicate.

The mill uses burs to cut the block to the precise shape of your specific restoration. When the milling process is complete, the restoration can be polished or stained and glazed to create a life-like appearance that will match and blend with your natural teeth.

Once the restoration is finished and inspected, it is placed and checked for fit, then cemented. The result is a permanent treatment completed in a single office visit.
