Crowns are a great option for correcting a variety of cosmetic dental issues. These versatile restorations are custom-made to fit over your teeth and enhance their appearance, and reestablish shape, size, and symmetry. Crowns can also be used to replace missing teeth, hold bridges in place, or restore a dental implant. At Wedgewood Dental, we offer same-day crowns.
There are many benefits to getting same-day crowns, including saving time and money on treatment.
Because the crowns are made and placed on the same day, you save time and money by not having to get temporary crowns and coming back for a second appointment. This means you don't have to put your life on hold while you get your smile restored. It also means you won't need to have a temporary crown placed that you have to remove later. Once your permanent crown is placed, you don't have to worry about it falling out or breaking. While your permanent crown is durable, you still need to be careful about eating hard foods. If you do end up damaging your crown, we can simply replace it without having to place another restoration.
One of the biggest benefits of getting same-day crowns is that they allow you to get your smile back to looking and feeling great again quickly.
The crown process usually requires two visits with the dentist, but with the same-day option, you can have your permanent restoration placed with just one visit. This saves patients from the hassle of multiple appointments and helps them avoid missing work or other obligations.
Another benefit of same-day crowns is the fact that the porcelain material used in their fabrication is very strong and durable. This makes it ideal for helping to strengthen and protect teeth that have been damaged due to chips, cracks, or decay. Plus, these porcelain restorations look just like natural teeth, so no one will be able to tell that you've had a procedure done.
Anyone with tooth decay or damage to their tooth can benefit from same-day crowns. The process is simple, and the results are beautiful. The only difference between traditional crowns and same-day crowns is the amount of time it takes to create the crown. At my practice, we use CEREC® technology to produce digital impressions of your teeth. From there, we can build your crown in a fraction of the time it would take to create it using a lab. That means you can receive a crown on the same day you come into our office.
