A porcelain dental crown is beautiful and luminescent and reflects light just enough to look like a natural tooth. Although porcelain crowns look natural, they are, in fact, artificial. Crowns can be shaped precisely in order to restore tooth damage and enhance your smile. This makes them very beneficial both physically and aesthetically.A crown can…
Why You Should Get Same Day Crowns
When someone damages a tooth, there is no better solution for restoring it than CEREC®/Same-Day Crowns. This convenient solution uses modern technology to create crowns while the patient waits at the office instead of taking several weeks. Thus, patients will not have to struggle with loose temporary crowns and no secondary appointment. Instead, everything is complete at one time, making it possible to visit our dentist office for a restoration and leave with said restoration on the same day.
Why you should get CEREC/same day crowns
#1. The procedure only takes one day
There is no greater benefit than receiving a dental restoration in one day. Patients will only need to take one day off work and to coordinate childcare for the appointment. Rather than needing to juggle and coordinate one's schedule around several dental visits, it only needs to be done once.
Since we can complete the restoration in one day, anyone who suffers sudden dental damage can have the tooth restored before anyone notices. This is important for anyone who is in a professional setting that demands a very precise appearance.
#2. They look natural
Same-day crowns look like natural teeth. Once we place the crowns, no one will be able to tell that there was any damage in the first place. It may even be difficult to remember which tooth the restoration was placed on.
#3. Crowns are a durable restoration
Even though we create these crowns in one day, they are still highly durable. These crowns can last for over a decade and make it possible to eat everything, including crunchy apples or a nice piece of steak.
#4. Restorations prevent other issues
Restoring a tooth is important for preventing additional problems. For example, a damaged tooth can break further. A damaged tooth is also more susceptible to infection, which can cause a lot of pain. Restoring the tooth quickly is the best way to avoid these additional and uncomfortable complications.
Benefits over traditional crowns
By comparison, restoring a tooth with a traditional crown is going to take longer. The tooth must be measured, an impression is taken of it and that information sent to a dental lab for the crown to be created. While waiting, we will prepare the tooth before placing the dental crown.
A normal restoration procedure can take an average of two or three appointments before a patient has a permanent dental crown. However, we can avoid all of these inconveniences.
Do this next
After reading about the benefits of CEREC®/same-day crowns, most people are ready to get started. In this case, it is necessary to visit a dentist office that offers this convenient solution. Since this is improved technology, most are still restoring teeth with traditional crowns. After scheduling an appointment, it is possible to come in for an appointment and receive a new crown the same day.
