No Messy Impressions!
One Easy Appointment!
PlanScan® is an advanced dental technology that is utilized for the restoration of decayed, cracked, or chipped teeth. With this technology Dr. Smith can create crowns and tooth colored fillings in a single visit. The PlanScan machine crafts a restoration in a matter of minutes. PlanScan restorations are made of all ceramic. The most beneficial feature of receiving a PlanScan restoration is that it is accomplished in one visit. In addition to the benefit of a one visit restoration, there is no uncomfortable impression material to bite on or temporary to wear.
The procedure for placement of a restoration is very simple. The first step is to remove all decay from the tooth. Dr. Smith will then shape the tooth in preparation to take a full color digital picture.
Once this image is captured, the tooth will appear on a computer screen in 3D. This will allow Dr. Smith to design the restoration right in front of you. Once the design is completed, the PlanScan will mill the restoration. This step takes approximately 15 minutes. You can actually watch this process if you would like. When the restoration is finished milling, Dr. Smith will place the restoration. The entire process should take just over an hour.
