What Are Same-Day Dental Crowns?
With advanced technology, our team can prepare the damaged tooth, design the crown, and fabricate it on-site – all within a matter of hours. This eliminates the need for a temporary crown and a follow-up appointment, providing patients with a convenient solution for severely decayed or damaged teeth. With same-day crowns, you can enjoy a seamless restoration experience without the prolonged treatment timeline, ensuring both your oral health and schedule are well taken care of.
The Process of Getting a Same-Day Dental Crown
To begin, a small amount of enamel is gently removed from the tooth to ensure a precise fit for the crown. Local anesthesia is typically administered to ensure a pain-free experience.
Next, digital impressions are taken, eliminating the need for uncomfortable putty molds. These impressions generate a 3D model of the tooth, which is then transmitted to the in-office milling machine.
In approximately an hour, the machine sculpts a custom crown from a solid block of dental porcelain or ceramic, perfectly matching your natural tooth's size, shape, and color. After a final fitting, any necessary adjustments are made by our team. Finally, the crown is securely placed over the tooth, and you're all set to go!
Benefits of Same-Day Crowns vs. Traditional Crowns
One day, you may find yourself in a situation that calls for a dental crown. Maybe you have a tooth with severe decay, or you’ve experienced a sudden dental injury. In either case, a same-day crown can hold the tooth together to prevent further issues.
They also provide the following incredible benefits:
- Complete your treatment in just one visit, eliminating the need for multiple appointments spread over weeks.
