Dental crowns are an essential part of the tooth restoration process. Whether you are dealing with a damaged tooth because of trauma or a root canal, a dental crown will help protect and restore the health and appearance of your tooth.
However, the entire process can take up to two weeks. The dentist has to take impressions of your tooth and send them to a lab where a team of technicians will create a custom-made crown that will perfectly fit in with the rest of your teeth. If you want to shorten this process, you may consider same-day dental crowns. But, are same-day crowns as effective as regular ones?
The short answer is yes. Keep reading to find out more.
Same-day crowns are a revolutionary dental technology that allows a dentist to create a custom-made crown in just one appointment. The dentist will use CAD/CAM technology to take digital impressions of your tooth and create a crown in just a couple of hours.
One of the main benefits of same-day crowns is that the process is significantly shorter compared to traditional crowns. While traditional crowns require multiple appointments, same-day crowns can be completed in just one appointment, which saves you a significant amount of time.
Same-day crowns are also convenient as you don't have to wear temporary crowns, which can be quite uncomfortable.
Temporary crowns can also fall off, forcing you to schedule another appointment to have it reattached. With same-day crowns, you can have a permanent crown placed on the same day.
Same-day crowns are created using advanced computer technology, which ensures accuracy in the fit and function of the crown. This technology allows the dentist to create a digital impression of the tooth, which is used to create the crown. The computer software also allows the dentist to customize the crown to match the color and shape of the surrounding teeth. This results in a crown that looks and feels natural and provides optimal functionality.
The process of getting a traditional crown can be a bit uncomfortable. The dentist will use a putty-like material to take impressions of the teeth, which can cause discomfort and gagging.
Same-day crowns eliminate this discomfort as they use digital imaging technology to create an impression of the tooth. This is a painless and non-invasive process that takes only a few minutes.
