If you’re like many of our patients, you lead a busy life and your time is important to you. Taking care of your dental health is also important, and same day crowns can help you get a top-quality crown in the shortest time possible. Through use of innovative dental technology, you can get a crown in our office on the same day as your initial examination, saving you the time and hassle of multiple appointments.
What is a same day crown?
Traditional crown fabrication takes place in a dental laboratory and requires several appointments to complete treatment. Same-day crowns are made in our office and can be inserted in just a few hours. Instead of using gooey impression material, Dr. Sura can capture the dimensions and exact shape of your tooth with a laser camera, using state-of-the-art CAD/CAM technology.
Special 3-D software is then used to convert the impression into a digital model that is used to create your crown. Same-day crowns are milled from a single block of durable high-quality ceramic that mimics your tooth’s natural appearance and texture.
Benefits of Same Day Crowns vs. Traditional Crowns:
- Fabricating a traditional crown typically takes several weeks. During that time, you will have to wear a temporary crownand return to the office to have the crown inserted.
- With same day crowns, the crown is milled right in the office. There’s no waiting, wearing a temporary crown or having to make multiple visits for another appointment.
- Digital impressions are more comfortable than messy traditional impressions. A traditional crown requires impressions and plaster casts to be sent to a lab where a technician designs the crown.
- Same day crowns offer the same long-term durability, comfort, and natural look of conventional lab-made crowns.
- Many people are allergic to traditional metal crowns. Same day crowns are all ceramic, so they won’t irritate the sensitive tissues in your mouth.
- Your crown will look and feel natural. We will custom polish and shape your crown so it fits perfectly and feels comfortable.
