Crown In An Hour: Impression Saver!

Now that you know how the dental crown in an hour is created, lets look at what it replaces.  One of those things is the impression.  

An impression is the "goop" that dentists place in your mouth to record your teeth.  Typically for a dental crown a dentist will use something called PVS.  This material takes about 5 minutes to set up.  The material is very accurate, but it does tend to shrink a small amount.  When a dentist sends the impression to a dental lab, depending on the time it takes, more changes can occur.  

When it reaches the dental lab, the lab pours a model from the impression.  The model is typically created from a plaster or stone.  This stone in turn, to compensate for the shrinkage of the impression, tends to expand.  But the amounts of expansion and shrinkage are not typically the same.  So inaccuracies can be built into the model.

Because of these inaccuracies it becomes more likely that the dental crown will not fit when you go back in for your appointment.  This is not always the reason for the crown not fitting, but it can be.  With the dental crown in an hour we know your crown fits right away.  There is no guessing and there is no two week wait, we know right then an there.  And because the 3D picture is so accurate we are always confident of a perfect fit.  

So say good bye to dental impressions and all the goop.  With a dental crown in an hour we can get it right for you, right away.  So that you can get in, get out, and get on with your life.  For more general information, please read our article on the dental crown in an hour.
