Same Day Crowns

Posted in Crowns

If you’ve ever had a dental crown completed before or know someone who has, you know that they require a lot of detail, precision, and planning. Traditional dental crown treatments take two appointments, with a temporary crown worn between the visits until the permanent crown can be made. Now there’s an option to complete dental crowns in just one visit.

Same day dental crowns use advanced technology that captures virtual data and transfers it into an on-site milling device that creates the custom-fitted crown at the very same appointment. The same day crown is made of color-matched material that is just as strong (if not stronger) than traditional porcelain crowns. Because there is no room for human error, same day crowns typically have a more precise fit than any lab-made dental crown. That means your crown can be permanently bonded into your mouth on the very same day.

Choosing same day crowns is an excellent option when you have a busy schedule and don’t want to return for a 2nd or 3rd appointment. It also allows your dentist to have an opportunity to catch up on all of your dental needs in just one appointment. Your same day crown will last just as long as other types of crowns, giving you the dependability that you need each and every day.

Crowns are typically recommended on teeth that have had large cavities, fractures, or been treated with a root canal. If you think you need a crown are want to consider a same-day treatment instead of traditional 2-visit crown procedures, ask your dentist whether or not you are a candidate for the treatment.
