Your Crown in One Visit at Half the Cost
Ok so you have a tooth or a number of teeth that have been excessively worn down, are cracked or broken, have large sections affected by tooth decay or for aesthetic reasons you are considering cosmetic treatment.
That’s the bad news.
40% of Dental Patients Choose Not to Proceed with Treatments
According to the 2016 Dental Economics Practice Survey, 40% of patients, when faced with important but potentially expensive treatment do not proceed. Of course, cost is a major factor, if not the only one.
This is the elephant in the room and we need to address it because a weak, untreated tooth can become a much bigger problem.
Cost shouldn’t be the barrier to getting the crown you desperately need.
When appropriate, we utilise the latest OVC3 technology that will cut the cost and the time it takes to install a crown – dramatically.
When you need a crown, for example, whether it is:
An emergency treatment for a broken or chipped tooth,
A regular treatment to strengthen a weak or decayed tooth or
You need treatment for aesthetic reasons,
We now have a solution that is fast, effective and approximately 50% cheaper than alternative traditional crowns.
One Visit Crown (OVC3)
OVC3 is a revolutionary dental procedure. With OVC3 we can perform a crown procedure in one visit, at half the cost.
This revolutionary crown procedure encases the visible tooth, and will in effect become the tooth’s new outer surface. You walk out of our clinic with ceramic crowns that look exactly like your own teeth.
When do you use a single visit crown?
A Crown restoration is used to:
Protect a weak tooth from fracturing,
Restore a fractured tooth,
Cover a discoloured or poorly shaped tooth
Cover a tooth that has had a root canal treatment.
OVC3 Crown Vs Traditional Porcelain Crown – What is the difference?
An OVC3 crown differs from traditional crown restoration treatments because the OVC3 crowns are pre-fabricated and come in 5 sizes. The dentist chooses the best size for your tooth and easily shapes the pre-fabricated crown to fit your tooth. The whole process takes approximately 40 minutes so you walk out after one appointment with a new crown. (See video)
A traditional Porcelain Crown is tailor made from the beginning and thus requires the dentist to make a mould, send it to the lab and then install and shape it to fit. This process takes between two to three weeks and requires at least 2 visits. You will have a temporary crown fitted to protect your tooth between visits.
So as you can see, an OVC3 crown does not require moulds to be sent to a dental lab, or temporary crowns created. Your treatment will take place in a single visit! That is a huge saving in time and money.
OVC3 Vs Traditional Crowns – Off the shelf Vs Tailor made
OVC3 Crowns look good, they are strong and robust and last well over time so why are they so much cheaper than a traditional Porcelain crown?
A simple analogy is; an OVC3 crown is like buying a suit off the rack verses having one tailor made. Rhondium, the maker of OVC3 has worked out that there are basically 5 sizes of crowns regularly used and they have been able to produce these in quantity, thus reducing the cost.
We stock all five sizes and use a sizer to determine which one you need for your crown. Each crown is hygienically packaged and you will see us open the packet and remove the crown before we use it.
When we install the crown, we shape it to make it a perfect fit before we harden it. The whole process takes approximately 40 minutes.
Aesthetically, no one will see that you have a crown, it looks just like a normal tooth and can be coloured to match your existing teeth.
