Same Day Crowns
The same-day crown is a technology that allows our dentist to have a crown fabricated and placed during the same appointment. At Fallbrook Dental Care, the same-day crown is a restoration created from a digital impression of your tooth by a machine called a CEREC machine. It can be made from all ceramic, porcelain fused to metal, or gold.
Are Same-Day Crowns Right for Me?
Same-day crowns can be a great choice for those who have a tooth knocked loose or fractured. You can avoid coming in for a temporary crown and then having to come back for another appointment when the final crown is ready. Same-day crowns are also a good choice for those who may have a tooth that has a large filling that is beginning to fail.
However, same-day crowns are not the right choice for everyone. Some situations may require a lab-made crown to give you a more functional and natural-looking restoration. Same-day crowns are also not a good choice for those who have a weakened immune system. Bacteria in your mouth can cause infections, and if you have a weakened immune system you may not be able to fight them off.
What Are Same-Day Crowns Made Of?
Same-day crowns are ceramic dental crowns that are designed, fabricated, and delivered in one appointment. That means you won’t have to wear a temporary crown, and you won’t have to wait for days on end for your permanent crown to be made.
Same-day crowns are made of high-quality ceramic. They are designed in a computer and then milled from blocks of ceramic. The ceramic is then shaped into a tooth-shaped mold, and the crown is bonded to the tooth with a special adhesive.
Same-day crowns are a great choice because they are virtually identical to your natural teeth. They can be color matched to your natural teeth, so they’ll blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
Benefits of Same-Day Crowns
Same-Day Crowns Improve Patient Experience
Same-day crowns are a great solution for patients looking for a restoration that can be completed in just one visit. For patients whose schedules are already busy, this means missing more time from work.
Same-Day Crowns Use Advanced Technology
Same-day crowns are special crowns that can be created and fitted to your teeth in just one visit. Same-day crowns use CAD/CAM technology, which eliminates the need for messy, uncomfortable impressions. Instead, your dentist can take digital photos of your teeth. The crown will be created using those photos. As a result, the crown will be a perfect fit for your mouth.
Same-Day Crowns Use Digital Scanning Equipment
Same-day crowns use digital scanning equipment to capture 3D images of teeth. Once the images are captured, they’re transferred to a lab where a milling machine creates a crown in about an hour. You’ll leave the dentist’s office with the crown in place.
