A dental crown is an artificial cap your dentist places on your tooth to treat various dental defects. It can improve your smile by restoring a decayed tooth, reinforcing a weakened tooth, or protecting your tooth from further damage. You may have to schedule several appointments before the complete placement of crowns. But in the same-day crown, you get your shells in a single appointment. Your dentist will design Glendale same day crown within a short time as you wait for placement. There are many benefits of the same-day crown and below are some.
They take a little time
You must wait several weeks for your shells to be made in an off-site laboratory for traditional crowns. Same-day dental crowns are made in a single day. Crowns will be made during your appointment. You will be in your dentist’s office when your crowns are made, which takes a little time. Your dentist will place the crowns immediately after being made, and you can resume work after the procedure.
You do not need a temporary crown
In traditional crowns, your dentist gives you temporary crowns before permanent restorations are made. You will have to schedule another appointment to remove your temporary crowns and replace them with permanent ones. Temporary crowns can fall out or fail to fit in properly. In some cases, you may have chewing difficulties. Same-day crowns are made and placed in a single appointment; this way, you do not have to use a temporary crown
They feel and look natural
Ceramic crowns are durable and function like your regular teeth. Before making same-day crowns, your dentist will examine the shade and color of your natural teeth. Once your same-day crowns are in place, you will have to differentiate your natural teeth and the shells. Same-day crowns feel like natural teeth. After the procedure, the crowns will improve your smile, boosting your confidence.
Preserve much of your missing tooth
In traditional crowns, your dentist must drill your compromised teeth for the crowns to fit. That means your dentist will eliminate a large part of your existing tooth. Same-day crowns do not involve extensive drilling; this will preserve most of your existing tooth.
Same-day crowns are not temporary. Your dentist designs them to keep your mouth in good condition for a lifetime. Same-day crowns are high quality and do not need replacement in the future as in traditional crowns. Same-day crowns do not irritate your gums and surrounding teeth. They have similar characteristics to natural tooth enamel.
You do not need a putty impression
Most patients cannot tolerate impression putty because it can trigger a natural gag reflex. Same-day crowns do not involve impression putty. Your dentist will take images of your teeth and surrounding gums with a handheld tool for digital dental impressions that do not require any putty or tray. Making same-day crowns is digital and more accurate than conventional methods.
Same-day crowns are convenient, durable, and reliable. After placement, you will regain chewing ability and improve your speech. Schedule an appointment at Canyada Dental Group for same-day crown placement to enhance your smile.
