The Benefits of Same-Day Crowns

There are several reasons a dental crown could be necessary. While not an exhaustive list, a crown is ideal for the following situations:

  • A crown can provide better structural support for a severely decayed tooth than a filling while restoring its original shape and size.
  • Teeth grinding can lead to weakened teeth that need structural support. The compromised tooth can be supported and protected from further damage.
  • Missing teeth can be treated with crowns that support a dental bridge or cover dental implants.
  • Misshapen or discolored teeth can be covered by crowns, which are more durable than tooth-colored fillings.
  • Following a root canal, a crown protects the damaged tooth.
  • Cracked teeth are protected from further damage or exposing the tooth’s nerves.

If you are considering a dental crown, we will first need to assess the condition of your tooth and make sure that a crown is the best treatment option. Then we can fabricate a crown in our dental office and place it that same day.

How to Care for Your New Crown

With proper care, a crown can last for many years. Here are a few tips for caring for your dental crown:

  • Brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to reduce the risk of decay.
  • Floss daily to remove plaque and bacteria from the gum tissue around the crown.
  • Avoid hard and sticky foods that can damage or loosen the crown from the tooth.
  • Use a mouthguard when playing sports or participating in any activity that could cause trauma to the mouth.

Will my dental crown be noticeable?

While dental crowns have been used for many years to improve the appearance of teeth, recent advances in materials and manufacturing techniques have resulted in crowns with a natural appearance that is indistinguishable from the surrounding teeth.

Thanks to these breakthroughs, dental crowns can now be made from porcelain or ceramic, which mimic the translucency and color of natural teeth. In addition, the latest generation of crowns is precision-crafted using computer-aided design and advanced milling technology. This allows for previously impossible accuracy, resulting in crowns that fit snugly and blend seamlessly in your smile’s appearance.
