Same-day crowns are a convenient solution for fixing damaged teeth or replacing missing teeth. They are fabricated using the latest technology so that the dentist in Springfield, VA can fit them and patients can walk out wearing them on the same day. Unlike traditional crowns manufactured in a dental laboratory, same-day crowns are milled right in our office at Sina Malekuti DDS, PC. This means you can have a new tooth crown while waiting in the dentist’s chair.
The Procedure for Same-Day Dental Crowns
Same-day crowns are a restorative dental treatment that uses CEREC technology. This advanced system allows us to quickly design, prepare, and place your crown in one appointment. The system digitally scans your tooth to prepare the customized crown and there is no need for a temporary crown.
CEREC crowns are made from ceramic, which is strong, durable, and translucent like a natural tooth. They are also metal-free, making them an excellent choice for patients who are sensitive to metals.
The Benefits of Same-Day Dental Crowns
- Same-Day Crowns Save Time
Same-day crowns are made possible by advanced technology. In the past, we would have to send a mold of your teeth to a lab, and they would fabricate your restoration from that mold. Then, we’d have to call you back for a second appointment to place your restoration.
Now, we can create your restoration using CAD/CAM technology. This means we can design and build your restoration in our office, which is more convenient for you. Plus, we typically can place your permanent restoration on the same day.
- Same-Day Crowns Eliminate the Need for a Second Treatment Visit
Same-day crowns are a popular option for patients who want a permanent crown that will restore their smile’s form and function in only one visit. Same-day crowns are milled from a block of ceramic or porcelain, which closely mimics the appearance of a natural tooth. The crown is placed over the tooth and bonded in place, eliminating the need for a temporary crown and a second visit.
- Same-Day Crowns Are More Comfortable
Same-day crowns eliminate the need for a temporary crown, which can sometimes cause patients discomfort or pain and even become loose and fall out, which can be embarrassing. This means you won’t be required to wear a restoration that is less-than-perfect for a week or two before it’s replaced with a final one and you can have your perfectly fitting crown on the same day.
