Yep, you can get a dental crown in one visit!
For many adults with a chipped, cracked, or badly damaged tooth, a dentist will recommend a dental crown to help restore the tooth. After the tooth is repaired, the crown will cover the existing tooth, restoring it to its natural appearance and function. And once a crown is in place, it will feel just like your normal tooth, making it a great solution for cosmetic or functionality issues. Traditional dental crowns require multiple visits, which can be hard to swallow for busy adults with various pressing responsibilities. This is why single-visit dental crowns have become quite the game changer.
Who needs dental crowns?
There are various reasons why your dentist might recommend a dental crown, including:
- Protecting a weaker tooth from breaking
- Holding parts of a cracked tooth together
- Restoring a tooth that is broken or extensively worn down
- Holding your dental bridge in place
- Covering and supporting teeth that have been treated with a large dental filling, resulting in less healthy tooth structure
- Covering teeth that are misshapen or discolored
- Covering a dental implant
- Helping to make a dental modification
Children also occasionally need dental crowns on their baby teeth. Your family dentist may suggest a dental crown for your child to help save teeth that have been eroded from dental decay and can’t withstand a filling. Crowns are also helpful in protecting baby teeth that are at risk of decay, which mainly occurs when children do not practice good daily oral hygiene.
You’ll most likely be a candidate for a same day dental crown if you are also a candidate for a traditional dental crown. All in all, same day crowns are ideal for those who have a busy schedule or experience dental anxiety and would like to avoid sitting in the chair for a long time.
What are single-visit, same day dental crowns?
If you have received a dental crown in the past, you probably recall that it took more than one visit to complete the treatment. During the first visit, your tooth needed to be prepared for the crown, and a temporary crown was put into place. Then, over the next two weeks, a dental laboratory fabricated your new crown and sent it to your dentist.
Finally, you went back in for your second appointment, where the temporary crown was removed and your new, permanent crown was set in place. Overall, you most likely dedicated two to three hours across two different appointments that spanned a two- to three-week period. For busy adults, this is often a lot to take on.
But now, single-visit dental crowns are becoming increasingly popular, and more and more patients are giving them a try. Tomasik Family Dental offers state-of-the-art CEREC same day dental crown technology. This means you can get a lifelike crown that is natural, aesthetic, and durable, and you won’t have to wait two to three weeks with a temporary crown. This makes it far easier for busy adults to get the restorative dental treatments they need.
Here are 7 reasons why patients love same day dental crowns:
Same day dental crowns are so comfortable, you will likely forget you even have one.
The cement used to make the crown stay put dries quickly, so it isn’t typically a problem. And if you suffer from MCS (multiple chemical sensitivity), where multiple symptoms occur repeatedly as a result of low-level chemical exposure, we can work with you to ensure your procedure is as comfortable as possible.
The placement of your same day dental crown will be highly accurate and will blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth.
You won’t need a temporary crown and can largely eliminate the risk of your permanent crown falling out at the most inopportune of times. Plus, your CEREC same day crown should last 10 to 15 years with proper oral hygiene and regular dental checkups.
5. No gag reflex
Same day dental crowns don’t require a gooey impression that can trigger many patients’ gag reflex.
You’ll love the beautiful and strong results of your same day dental crown.
Since you’ll only need to make one trip to the dentist, you won’t have to worry about taking extra time away from work or your family. Plus, we’d rather you visit us for your dental cleaning and oral examination once every six months than for multiple restorative treatment sessions.
