Oakland, OR September 28, 2006--Stephanie Bright , CDT and Lynn Forbes, Metal Framework technician of Crown Works Dental Laboratory, an Oregon based dental lab, recently attended training at the NobelBiocare Institute in Yorba Linda, California.  Stephanie is the senior ceramist at the dental lab and oversees the finished Procera all-ceramic restorations.  Lynn scans for the all-ceramic understructure for each of these dental crown restorations using the NobelBiocare Procera Forte CAD/Cam scanning equipment.

This training prepared them for working on the latest in CAD/CAM designed  dental restorations,  teeth-in -an-hour.  Crown Works is working closely with a leading oral surgeons dental group based out of Eugene, Oregon to provide patients throughout the Pacific Northwest the opportunity to have a full crown restoration placed on the same day as the implant.  These restorations are on the leading edge in cosmetic dentistry. 

These cases are planned in advance by the oral surgeons, using a software system that incorporates a CT scan of the patient’s maxillary and mandibular arches and allows the doctor to view the bone and nerves for optimal placement of the implants. The teeth-in-an-hour system for implantology allows the dentist to place the implants and the crowns all in one visit, eliminating the need for a dental bridge and the lengthy temporary crown period. NobelBiocare has recently been promoting this new technology, concerning teeth-in-an-hour with commercials on the major television networks and these advertising spots have been generating patient interest throughout the United States.
