For decades now, dental implants and crowns have been used to replace missing teeth. Today, patients can enjoy greater convenience with same day crowns. These restorations come with all the same benefits as traditional crowns except patients only need to schedule one appointment at our prosthodontist’s office.
In the past, patients would need to schedule multiple appointments over the course of several months. Now you only need one visit before you get to enjoy your new crowns. Thanks to the latest advancements in CEREC same-day restorations, our prosthodontist can fabricate a permanent crown quickly, and you will be able to walk out of the office with a rejuvenated smile.
Traditional crowns require removal of most of the remaining tooth so that the crown can fit firmly over it. With same day crowns, our prosthodontist can keep more of the natural enamel intact. This results in less drilling, so patients enjoy greater comfort during the procedure.
Many patients worry if these same day dental crowns will be of an inferior quality to traditional ones. These patients can rest easy because in both instances, the crown is made of durable porcelain. This means it will retain its strength for years to come, and porcelain is highly resistant against stains.
While waiting for traditional crowns to be made, patients require temporary crowns. These are not as resilient, and as a result, patients are unable to eat raw vegetables, nuts and other foods for a couple months until the permanent crown can go in. Same day crowns eliminate the need for this entirely.
