PlanScan Same Day Crowns

PlanScan Same Day Crowns

Planmeca PlanScan™ CAD/CAM Restoration System allows New Horizons Dental Center the ability to design, create and properly fit a new crown in a remarkably short amount of time. Previously, this process could take as long as two weeks or more to complete, however with PlanScan, you can enjoy a bright new smile in a single visit!

How does the PlanScan Process Work?

  • First, the target tooth is prepared for the crown. A digital picture is taken using extremely precise blue laser technology. The picture is then converted into a 3D model of your tooth.
  • Using the 3D rendering, your crown is designed and created using a fabrication machine.
  • The crowns are fabricated from ceramic blocks, which are available in a variety of shades to precisely match the color of your other teeth.
  • The completed crown is then polished and correctly fitted to the target tooth. Once properly fitted, it’s cemented into place.

Why choose PlanScan?

  • The process can be completed in one visit in a short period of time, so it saves you the hassle and time of several appointments.
  • The crown is created in-house by New Horizons Dental Center, so we have complete control of how it will be designed and fitted.
  • No need to wear temporary crowns while the final product is being created in a lab, as your final crown is fitted that same day.
