Reliable, state-of-the-art technology is at the forefront of dental restoration. Breakthrough methods and techniques make it possible to offer same day dental crowns for many conditions. Today's technology presents us with opportunities our forefathers never had. Stuart Prosthetic Dentistry in Stuart, FL provides the dental solutions you've been searching for today.

How Is a Crown Done?

 In the past, the process of delivering a crown took two to three visits to the dentist. It included messy impressions, a temporary crown that could come out or break and a two to three week waiting period for the dental lab to fabricate the finished crown. While you have a temporary crown, the tooth may be more sensitive to hot and cold and you will be told to avoid sticky and crunchy foods.

Today, using CEREC, an advanced dental technology, crowns can be made of tooth-colored materials (ceramics, porcelain, composite resin) in a single visit. Apart from speeding up the process, CEREC crowns are 50% more accurate than lab-made ones. This is because with CEREC the impression is made by digital scanning of the teeth and then the crown is virtually designed and milled (CAD/CAM) by Dr. Tyler himself. The digital process eliminates the need for messy impressions, stone models, wax, and metal, including their inaccuracies. In addition, a temporary crown and second appointment is not needed.

Why a Prosthodontist?

A prosthodontist like Dr. Tyler is a dentist who has attained advanced education and training, efficiency, and expertise with advanced technology. They are extensively trained in state-of-the-art techniques and procedures for treating complex dental conditions and restoring optimum function and esthetics. Rigorous training and expertise give a prosthodontist a special understanding of the dynamics of a smile and the preservation of a healthy mouth.

A Dental Lab Approach

By becoming a Certified Dental Technician prior to becoming a Prosthodontist, Dr. Tyler gained a clear and wide-ranging understanding of restorative, cosmetic and digital dentistry. His dental lab background has provided him with a keen eye for quality. He chooses to complete most lab procedures himself in the office. He only delivers high-quality restorations that are customized in detail, down to the shade for each patient he treats.

An Accurate Diagnosis

 

X-rays that are taken digitally allow dentists to see below the gum line. This state-of-the-art diagnostic technique helps in identifying problem areas before they get worse. Early diagnosis is essential in treating the teeth and gums in a shorter amount of time.
