A few years ago, dental technology finally reached the point where in-house crown design has become possible. An article in 2013 by the Wall Street Journal stated that one-day crown systems were available in 10-15% of dentist offices nationwide. The biggest advantage of one-day crowns, as the name implies, is removing the need for a third party dental lab and their often lengthy and expensive turn-around time.
There has been much discussion around the negative aspects of dentists making their own crowns. Most commonly, that they lack the same quality and detail of traditional hand-made crowns. While both sides of the argument have some merit, this article is intended to lay out the facts (as well as disprove myths) between digital and hand-made methods. See our Digitally-Fabricated Crown technology page to learn more about our machine and process for same-day dental crowns for our Granbury patients.
