From start to finish, the process of getting a crown is much easier and faster for the patient with our new technology.
Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) November 10, 2015
Powell Ohio Family Dentist Dr. Jerry Cheung has worked many years to perfect the patient’s experience in the office by continually seeking out the most cutting edge technologies for comfort and convenience. Most recently, the Powell, OH dentist added PlanMeca E4D as a resource to make the process of developing and implementing crowns much simpler.
Dr. Cheung comments, “From start to finish, the process of getting a crown is much easier and faster for the patient with our new technology. Traditionally, and in most offices, the crown must be sent away to be created. Now, we can simply take an impression and the patient can watch as it is being made. To boot, the crown is created with laser point precision through an extremely cutting edge system that beautifully handles custom tooth shading—the very same quality as lab-milled crowns.”
The new technology takes away the need to use the traditional “goop” that has been utilized for taking impressions. Now, impressions are taken digitally by a camera directed by laser (much like scanners in the supermarket). In addition, the PlanMeca E4D allows Bright Smile Dental the ability to custom shade the tooth as the patient waits. This key feature matches crown color with the natural distinctions a patient may have.
Crowns are created on-site on the the same day the impression is taken. Unlike most offices, patients can forgo the second appointment and any discomfort associated with a temporary crown. Overall, patients prefer to have all of the treatment and care within the same visit, rather than returning to the office weeks later to have the crown seated.
Dr. Cheung adds, “This truly state-of-the-art tool gives me and my staff much more control over the details of the crown design. We are perfectionists by nature, so we love having more leverage when it comes to designing the crown to truly tailor the shape for function (bite, chewing habits, etc.)
Dr. Cheung has made it a commitment to continue to add technology that enhances the patient’s experience. The dentist adds, “The PlanMeca E4D is truly the future direction of dentistry. We are committed to giving patients access to the future, today!”
