iTero Dental Crowns
Conventional dental crowns typically need two sittings with the dentist. The first sitting involves tooth preparation and placement of a temporary crown. The second sitting comes a few days later after the dental crown is produced in the laboratory. However, this two-sitting procedure can be time-consuming for many people who are hard-pressed for time or do not wish to spend a lot of time at the dentist’s office.
Now there are advanced technologies that allow Dr. Munira Lokhandwala to offer dental crowns in a single visit. Dr. Lokhandwala specializes in the placement of iTero crowns, using Glidewell’s state-of-the-art milling machine for manufacturing your crowns on the spot instead of sending them away to a lab. With these technologies, it is possible to have the crown placed in a single appointment with the dentist. Dr. Munira is a recognized specialist for iTero crown treatment.
If iTero crowns are right for you, Dr. Munira will use a particular iTero machine to create a digital image of the prepared tooth. She will then use Glidewell’s advanced milling machine to manufacture a customized crown tailored to your specific bite. With iTero’s precise measurements, the milling machine can produce a perfect, reliable ceramic crown.
Your crown will be ready in a short time, and Dr. Munira can then quickly place the crown over the prepared tooth. The entire procedure can be efficiently accomplished in only one sitting.
ADVANTAGES OF ITERO CROWNS
iTero is a much more efficient and speedier alternative to traditional crowns. It eliminates the need for two visits to the dentist’s office, two anesthesia applications, two occasions of leave from work, and avoids the need for wearing temporary crowns. It also saves the expense of a lab technician and a second visit to the dentist. In terms of quality, iTero crowns are reliable and durable. Since it does not use any metal, the iTero crown is also aesthetically appealing.
INTEGRATION OF ITERO AND GLIDEWELL TECHNOLOGY
Our dentist utilizes iTero, a specialized 3D impression scanning device that can take full arch scans in as little as 60 seconds to create digital impressions. This technology can be used in many dental treatment areas and eliminates the need for messy manual impressions and molds performed at other dental procedures. Integrating iTero technology ensures a better patient experience and precision impressions for creating iTero dental crowns and restorations.
Our Glidewell milling machine interprets the precise data provided by our iTero scanners, using state-of-the-art technology to create custom-made crowns on-site tailored to fit your mouth.
