Dental Scanning

Our experts at Distinctive Dental Solutions believe that crown creation doesn’t have to be an unpleasant, inconvenient process. You deserve a comfortable experience that delivers perfectly fitting crowns. It’s unlikely that you have time for extra appointments to adjust a misfitting crown. Even if you did, you shouldn’t have to spend more time in the dentist’s chair than necessary. We value your needs, which is why we employ professional tooth scanning technology to make sure your same day crown fits right from the start. 

Accurate Scanning Technology

Here at Distinctive Dental Solutions, we ensure that your crown fits accurately, so you don’t need to return for adjustments. Typically, crown creation requires forming a mold of your mouth that is sent back and forth between the dentist’s office and a laboratory. Not only is this inconvenient, but if the impression or any step in the crown-making process is inaccurate, you must return and undergo the process all over again. No one should have to sit through multiple appointments for a crown, which is why we take impressions and fabricate restorations differently. Our specialists use PlanScan, a premium dental technology for same day crown creation. We’re sure you’ll find this technology convenient and precise. Here’s how it works: 

PlanScan is a computer-aided imaging solution designed specifically for dental restoration. This technology allows us to go above and beyond the average crown creation method by relying on intraoral scanning. Intraoral scanning involves holding a laser scanning wand near the location where your crown will be placed. We then take the scan of your mouth moving the scanning wand over the preparation and adjacent teeth, and the technology creates a 3-Dimensional “impression” of your tooth down to the last detail. The scan can be completed within seconds in many instances. 

Since your scan is done digitally, we can instantly see the image and send it anywhere within our clinic or we can share it with any partner through a secure internet connection. You don’t have to wait for an impression to set or for feedback from a laboratory: your impression is done right away! Considering this, PlanScan excels even against other dental scanning technology. Some intraoral scanning technologies need contrast powder applied to the inside of the client’s mouth to take a more accurate image. PlanScan does not involve putting any powder or substances in your mouth. Instead, it allows the scan to be done externally by employing precise sextant scanning technology. When it comes to crown creation, PlanScan has been proven in independent clinical studies to be the best and most accurate option available on the market today!    

A Stress-Free Experience

Efficiency isn’t the only benefit of this option. You’ll appreciate how PlanScan provides a comfortable user experience. No need to worry about having to face an awkward, tedious process to get crowns. By using this technology, we’ll make sure your appointment is fast and relaxing. Usually, tooth impressions involve a goopy solution that hardens in the mouth. This is often an uncomfortable experience that many people would rather avoid, especially those with a sensitive gag reflex. If that sounds like you, you’ll benefit from PlanScan’s ability to scan the mouth without any messy materials. This noninvasive method will let you rest easy knowing your crowns will be a perfect fit–without the unnecessary discomfort!

You don’t have to wait any longer. It’s time to get a brand new, same day crown with PlanScan technology. Call us today to schedule an appointment!

Office Re-Opening

Hello from the team at Distinctive Dental Solutions.  You may or may not be aware of this, but our office has been closed since March 19, 2020 by decree of the Governor of Indiana and by Federal recommendation.  Since the time of formal closing, fortunately we have been able to see and help patients with emergency level treatment, but no “routine” schedule has been allowed since that time.

On April 20th, Governor Holcombe issued Executive Order 20-22 which stated that dental offices among other health related fields would be allowed to return to practice as early as April 27, 2020.  This Order, as with all items related to this crisis, is subject to revision and will be revisited by the Governor’s office weekly for the duration of the crisis.

As Distinctive Dental Solutions, as you have come to expect and rely on, we are hard at work to re-invent our office experience to present the best and safest experience possible to ensure the health of our team and each of you, our valued patients.  It is because of this need to plan for and execute changes to the office and gather all needed items of personal and patient protective equipment needed, we will open to direct patient care on May 4, 2020.

You will notice multiple changes to the way you are welcomed into the office, where you will wait, if needed, prior to or after your appointment, and even the door where you will exit upon completion of an appointment in the office.  Each one of these have been designed to keep you and us as safe and “individual” as possible in keeping with the social distancing rules that have been so successful in controlling the spread of the Covid-19 virus.  What will NEVER change is our total commitment to providing only the best care possible delivered by the best possible team of care givers in the high-tech and “home-like” setting to which you are accustomed. 

We have missed you all very much and look forward to seeing you back in the office for your dental care as soon as possible, but we will not move forward until we can be confident in our systems and protocols to keep everyone involved safe and healthy. 

Here is to seeing you in the office very soon!!
