Benefits of Same-Day Dental Crowns
In the course of your life, your teeth can be damaged, discolored, or worn down. Dental crowns fit over your natural teeth, transforming their shape and protecting them from further damage. Our dentists use crowns to help restore the appearance, size, and strength of your smile. If you need a dental implant or a root canal treatment, or if you have a crown that is about to come off, we can help you. Explore your crown options with our trained team so that you can make the best-informed decisions about your dental health.
You may need a same-day dental crown for several reasons, including:
- Restoring a tooth that is fractured, broken, or severely worn
- Covering a tooth after root canal therapy
- Protecting a weakened tooth
- Replacing or protecting a large filling
- Completing a dental implant
- Holding a dental bridge in place
- Enhancing a tooth's aesthetic appeal
Quality Same-Day Dental Crowns
Unlike traditional crowns that require at least two appointments, same-day crowns are fitted in just about two hours. Innovating on traditional crowns, our dentist can create a beautiful and durable crown in just one visit. It takes just a few minutes to create a digital impression of your teeth by scanning your teeth with a digital scanner.
The digital scan allows us to make a precise digital model of your tooth, eliminating the need for a mold of your teeth. The software uses these pictures to create a 3D model of the tooth that is then sent to our CEREC machine.
Our process of creating a dental crown relies on computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM). Using the digital map provided by the scan, the machine mills the shape of your tooth precisely from a block of tooth-colored porcelain. We match the color of your crown to your natural teeth for a beautiful and lasting restoration. Once complete, your new crown can be fixed firmly in place, and our dentists will make any necessary adjustments to deliver an ideal fit. You can expect your new crown to last a decade or more with proper care.
Same-Day Crown FAQs
We know you likely have questions about our same-day crown service, and we're happy to provide whatever information you would like to know. Some common questions we receive include:
CEREC® crowns are made the same day that your tooth is prepared and can be used just like traditional dental crowns. They can be made in mere hours, unlike traditional crowns that usually take two weeks to be created offsite in a laboratory and shipped to our office.
On average, same-day CEREC crowns can last anywhere from 10 to 15 years. However, they may last much longer if they are properly maintained. Today's crowns are carved from a single block of high-quality ceramic, making them highly durable.
Our dentists will use a local anesthetic to make the crown placement and any other treatment as comfortable for you as possible. A tooth that's received a crown should not be painful, but you may feel some discomfort and sensitivity that last for several hours or a few days. This will gradually go away as your mouth heals. If needed, you can take over-the-counter pain medication to alleviate discomfort until your tooth has fully recovered.
