The Secret To Same Day Crowns Is PlanScan Restoration Technology 

PlanScan is a type of 3D CAD/CAM (Computer-Aided Design/Manufacturing) technology, similar to CEREC. This technology uses a hand-held 3D scanner, which can quickly create a 3D model of your mouth and your tooth.

Then, this information is uploaded to a milling unit by Dr. Charles Schof, who can create a dental crown or an inlay/onlay in just a few minutes. Then, the computerized milling unit quickly carves the restoration out of a solid, tooth-colored block of porcelain.

The entire process of creating a restoration usually takes less than 30 minutes, which means that you can have your tooth restored in just a single consultation at the Mandeville Center for Dental Excellence.

How The Process Works – What To Expect From Your Appointment 

Not sure what to expect from the same-day crown process? Your appointment will begin with an oral exam from Dr. Schof, who will ensure that a crown is the best option for restoring your tooth.

If you’re approved, he will clean and numb your mouth, then trim your tooth to remove damaged material and prepare it for a crown. Then, he will take a scan of your mouth using our handheld 3D PlanScan scanner, design your crown, and upload this design into the milling machine. 

Your crown will be automatically created in just a few minutes. There’s no need to take messy impressions of your tooth, or send them to an outside dental lab, which can take up to 2-3 weeks or longer to build your crown.

When your crown has been made, Dr. Schof will retrieve it, and then check its fit. Minor adjustments can be made, or the entire crown may be remade if necessary, to ensure it fits perfectly. Once everything looks good, your crown will be bonded into place permanently using powerful dental cement.

PlanScan Crowns And Restorations Are Extremely Strong And Durable

You may be wondering if PlanScan crowns and restorations are as strong and durable as traditional dental crowns. The answer is “yes!” Thanks to the advanced materials and techniques used by PlanScan, your crown will be extremely durable. 

In fact, PlanScan crowns have been shown to be stronger and more durable than CEREC, a leading competitor in same-day dentistry. That’s why we exclusively use PlanScan technology to create same-day restorations at the Mandeville Center for Dental Excellence.
