In the past, patients who required a dental crown had to wait weeks for their crown to be made in an off-site laboratory, and you didn’t even know if it was going to fit right. Well now, at Ranson & Ranson DDS PC Family Dental, patients can receive their dental crowns in one day! Dr. Ronald Ranson and Dr. Leticia Fernandez-Ranson are pleased to offer Carestream same-day dental crowns in Morton, Illinois. This means there are no temporary crowns, and you can rest assured that your restoration fits over your tooth perfectly and comfortably. To learn more, we welcome you to schedule your visit with our dentists by calling us at 309-263-2021.
Dental crowns, also commonly called “caps”, are common dental restorations that can be used in a variety of treatments. In most cases, dental crowns are used to restore a tooth’s shape, size, and health when it has been significantly damaged. After the damaged parts of the tooth are removed, dental crowns sit over what is left of your natural tooth, all the way to the gum line.
In most dental offices, your dentist will take a mold of your natural tooth and send it to an off-site dental laboratory, where it can take weeks to create your unique crown. Once the crown is finished, the dentist checks that it fits comfortably in your smile. If the crown is not the right size or shape, you have to wait again for any modifications to be made on your crown. At our practice, however, we are pleased to offer the latest dental technology to make your dental crown treatment faster, more accurate, and more convenient.
We understand that you have a busy life, and you do not have time to keep coming back to the dentist to resize your dental crown. This is why we proudly use Carestream technology to make your dental crowns in just one day. With Carestream technology, our dentists can repair your damaged tooth and take 3D images of your natural tooth. We can then use this 3D image to design and create your perfectly personalized restoration, allowing you to walk out of our office with a complete dental crown treatment.
