General Information for Same-Day Dental Crowns

Services - Dental CrownsOver time our teeth begin to weaken and become more susceptible to problems such as decay, cracks, discoloration and others. If you feel your smile isn’t what it once was, dental crowns can help you recover your smile. If your dentist notices that a tooth is decayed or seems weakened/cracked a crown may be necessary to make sure that there are no additional problems with the tooth. In cases like this a filling or bonding will not be sufficient.

Dental crowns can be made from porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or a full gold crown. To maintain a natural look and feel a porcelain finished crown is best, as it can be matched to the shade of your other teeth. This will allow it to blend in and appear just like one of your natural teeth.

Now Offering Same-Day Dental Crowns!

Our office is proud to offer same-day crowns. The process involves reshaping your tooth by filing down the enamel so that the crown can be placed over it and a scan will be taken of that tooth and the surrounding teeth. This scan will be used to fabricate your crown so that it can be made to fit in the spot created for it and looks the same relative to the surrounding teeth. When you look in the mirror, you will see your old smile back!

With same-day crowns, there is no need for a temporary crown or waiting 2-3 weeks for a lab to fabricate your crown. Dental crowns are durable and will usually last about 10-15 years. You should care for it as you would any of your other teeth with regular brushing and flossing. Call us today if you would like to learn more about how crowns can help restore your smile.
