What Are Same-Day Crowns?
Same-day dental crowns, like traditional crowns, are tooth-shaped restorations for broken or compromised teeth. These restorations are designed to cover the entire visible portion of the tooth, encasing it to protect it from further harm and help preserve the integrity of your natural tooth structures. Dental crowns are a versatile solution that can be used on nearly any tooth and are durable enough to withstand daily use.
Our practice is passionate about the health and longevity of your smile. We integrate this into our compassionate care using high-quality materials and advanced technology. If we determine that a same-day crown is best for your situation, we will work diligently to help you understand the process and feel confident in our care. We customize each crown with care to mimic the natural look and feel of your other teeth for an aesthetically pleasing smile.
Why Do I Need a Crown?
When your enamel is damaged, it loses the ability to protect the complex network of blood vessels and nerves inside your teeth. This damage and decay can lead to sensitivity, pain, and possible infection. A crown can help relieve pain and sensitivity and restore function to your smile. While every patient's situation is unique, some common situations where our same-day dental crowns might be right for you include:
- After root canal therapy
- Severe tooth decay
- Cracked or broken tooth
- Discolored, chipped, or misshapen tooth
What Are the Benefits of Same-Day Crowns?
While both traditional and same-day crowns protect a compromised tooth, the main difference is the ability to complete a same-day crown in a single appointment. The traditional process for dental crowns involves getting an impression of the tooth and placing a temporary crown, then waiting several weeks before returning for a second appointment to place your permanent crown. With same-day crowns, you can usually leave the same day with a permanent restoration for your smile. Some of the other benefits of same-day crowns include:
- No temporary crown: Because the crown is completed in just one appointment, you don't need to worry about the potential inconvenience and discomfort of a temporary crown.
- Natural feeling: We customize your crown to fit precisely and feel like a comfortable, natural part of your smile.
- Durability: Same-day crowns are made from a single block of ceramic, making them resistant to cracking or fracturing. The precision offered by our process also allows the crown to bond securely to your tooth.
- Cosmetic appeal: Ceramic crowns mimic the translucency of your enamel, making them look natural. We will consider your cosmetic goals and customize the color, shape, and shade of your crown so it seamlessly integrates with the rest of your smile.
FAQs About Same-Day Dental Crowns
Whether you have just had root canal therapy or need severe tooth decay treated, it's natural to still have questions about what to expect from same-day dental crowns. Our team wants you to feel comfortable and confident in the care you receive, which is why we will take the time to answer all your questions at any point in the process. Some of the common questions we get from our patients include:
How do I care for my new same-day crown?
Although your crown won't decay like a normal tooth, brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits are important to protect your overall oral health, which will help preserve the integrity of your crown. Don't use your teeth as a tool, for tasks like opening bottles or cans, as that can crack or chip your crown.
How long do same-day crowns last?
In general, same-day crowns are durable and can last anywhere from 10-15 years. Properly caring for your crown is a great way to help it last as long as possible.
Are same-day crowns painful?
While the fitting process may cause some discomfort, and you may experience tooth sensitivity immediately after placement, your crown should not cause long-term discomfort or pain. If you continue to feel significant discomfort or pain after receiving your crown, don't hesitate to contact our office.
