A dental crown is a tooth restoration device that can be used after a root canal, to replace cracked or broken teeth or to put on top of an artificial dental implant root. They look and feel like natural teeth. Thanks to advances in technology, same-day crowns can be milled and fitted in one visit. Some of the main benefits of same-day crowns are:
• Speed – Same-day crowns can give you a new smile in one visit. You don’t need to live with a missing tooth or a temporary crown for weeks before you are fitted with the new one. With only one appointment, you don’t need to miss work or find time for multiple appointments. No more devoting your days off to the dentist.
• Digital map – With a digital map of your mouth, our dentist can see all of the contours of your teeth and gums. A 3D camera takes a picture of your teeth and any modifications are made by our specialist.
• Durable – Same-day crowns are just as strong as traditional crowns. They look like real teeth. They also function like natural teeth and require the same flossing, brushing and regular visits to the dentist as your natural teeth.
• High-quality materials – The ceramic used for same-day crowns is very durable and rarely cracks. It expands and contracts with hot and cold food to allow fewer, if any, dietary restrictions. The ceramic comes in many different shades as to enable a close match with your natural teeth. Our specialist will show you the choices and help you pick the best shade. Traditional crowns may irritate your gums, are bulky and may leave a black line on the gum line. This isn’t the case with same-day crowns.
Same-day crowns have become the industry standard when it comes to dental crowns. They can be done quickly, hence the name same-day, they may last for years, they fit perfectly and they look and feel natural.
