Reasons to Consider Same-Day Crowns

September 12, 2014

Same-Day CrownsA chipped, cracked, broken, or decaying tooth can cause a lot of pain. Not only can it be painful to eat, chew, or even speak, but it can be painfully embarrassing to smile and let the world see a tooth that you feel is unattractive. Porcelain crowns have long been a dental solution for damaged teeth, but typically require a fairly long waiting period between receiving a temporary crown and placing the final product in the mouth. Same-day crowns are a great solution because they are fast and convenient – a must in today’s whirl-wind world. If you are in need of a crown, the following are some reasons to consider a same-day procedure.

Reduced Wait Time

Traditional crowns require at least two visits to the office of your dental group: one to have the dentist shape your tooth and place a temporary crown, and a second to fit your tooth with the permanent crown several days later. The reason that two visits are needed is to give the lab time to design and create the crown. With a same-day procedure, the only waiting comes as your dentist builds your crown at the office.

Up-to-Date Technology

The reason that dentists are now able to create one-of-a-kind cosmetic dentistry products for their patients in such a short amount of time is the new technology available. Specialized 3D software has the ability to design the crown to fit perfectly in the space it will occupy and alongside the other teeth that will surround it. Armed with this technology, your dentist can make a more accurate crown than was previously possible.

Appearance and Durability

Same-day crowns are designed to look just like your natural teeth. They are manufactured using high-quality ceramic or porcelain that mimics the translucence of your remaining teeth. Plus, as your dentist designs the crown he or she ensures that it matches your teeth perfectly and is customized to fit precisely into place. Crowns are just as durable, if not more so, than natural teeth. When taken care of properly, patients often enjoy them for up to 15 years. Avoiding excess pressure on the crown will help keep it strong and sturdy for many years to come.
