If you have ever had the crown procedure performed on one or more of your teeth then chances are that you went to your dentist for the initial crown preparation appointment, during which your tooth was numbed, the work was performed on your tooth, an impression was made, and a temporary crown was made. You then went back to your dentist for a second appointment in about 3 weeks to receive your permanent crown. During that 3 week period, you had to be very careful about eating on and around your temporary crown, and if you were really unlucky, your temporary crown may have fallen off causing sensitivity and inconvenience until you could see your dentist to have it put back on. Our office is one of only a handful in the Golden Triangle area that can make your permanent, all porcelain crown in a single appointment utilizing the E4D/Planscan System. No second appointment. No temporary crown. Imagine not having to have the same tooth numbed a second time! You can eat whatever you want just hours after the appointment, instead of eating a restricted diet for 3 or more weeks. The quality of the crown is the same or even better than that of a traditional crown made at a dental laboratory. Dr. Ferguson and Mary Higgins, lead dental assistant, have been extensively trained at the D4D institute in Dallas, Texas, to utilize this amazing technology and have already performed hundreds of cases with tremendous success. If a crown is part of your treatment plan, Dr. Ferguson will be happy to determine if an E4D/Planscan System single appointment crown is right for you.
