Crowns are one of the most common dental restorations available, with thousands of patients visiting the dentist daily for a crown nationwide. Removable restorative treatment is meant to provide durable retention for years to come, and Glidewell Crowns, with our same-day service at our Port Washington dental office, are the solution every patient needs.
What is Glidewell.io Crown Technology?
Glidewell.io is a new generation of same-day lab and treatment technology that allows you to receive crowns, bridges, and implants with the convenience of being able to stay at home while your treatment is completed. This process removes the need for multiple appointments, extended treatment times, and expensive office visits.
3V Dental + Glidewell: The Perfect Same-Day Crown Process
The Glidewell process uses a state-of-the-art milling system to create the final crown in the exact shape of your teeth. This process allows the material to be removed faster, more precisely, and with more consistent results than any manual means of creating a crown.
At 3V Dental Associates, we use a high-density resin material that is much stronger and more durable than traditional porcelain. It will give you a crown that can withstand the pressures of chewing and speaking and any type of physical damage.
After the crown is made, it is inserted in a special resin with the same texture and feels like natural tooth enamel. Through this process, you’ll have a beautiful smile, and natural-looking teeth that can stand up to anything life throws your way.
Advantages of Same-Day Crowns from 3V Dental in Port Washington
Glidewell.io has several advantages over traditional dental crowns and bridges. Some of our key benefits include:
1. Highly aesthetically pleasing, the aesthetic value of crowns and bridges is challenging to match with any natural tooth structure. With Glidewell.io, you’ll be able to have a perfectly-fitted crown that will look like a natural tooth structure due to its unique material and appearance. The result of the same milled crown. While other techniques sometimes achieve this kind of crown, imperfections in the milled finish often lead to unsightly scratches and aesthetic concerns. With Glidewell.io, you’ll have a high-quality, milled finish that can last for years.

3. Digital scanning and milling allow for precise cuts, meaning you won’t experience any bleeding during the procedure. Only one appointment is required. Because our crowns are milled to fit your teeth exactly, we can provide you with a perfectly-fitting crown from start to finish in a single visit. Moreover, this is combined with an excellent new resin material that is stronger and more durable than any traditional crown or bridge.
Same-Day Crowns vs. Typical Crown Procedure
A typical dental crown procedure can take up to three separate appointments to restore your teeth with a high-quality crown. It includes an initial appointment where the tooth is cleaned and shaped, a second appointment for the temporary crown, and another appointment for the permanent crown.
With the Glidewell process, you’ll be able to have all of these treatments completed in one day. We will use our state-of-the-art milling technology to create your custom crown at our lab facility. Once the crown is ready, we’ll send the finished product to your home or office and have the restoration placed on your teeth.
How Long Will My Same-Day Crowns Last?
With the technology we use in our Glidewell Same-Day Crowns, we can ensure your crowns will stay in place as long as a regular porcelain crown. It means you can enjoy years of service and beautiful smiles without worrying about whether or not your crown will hold up.
