Convenient, Durable Dental Crowns

Receiving a dental crown can require multiple visits to the dentist in order to create and place the crowns. 

Dr. Sanford Barr and Dr. Marianne Diachenko offer same day crowns. We’ve put together 5 reasons why same day dental crowns could be the solution to your smile goals. 

1. Same day crowns offer quick results.

When you’re the patient of a dental team that doesn’t offer same day crowns, you have to make multiple appointments to have your dental crown fitted and then placed. First, your dental team needs to prepare your tooth and then create a mold by taking impressions. At practices that do not offer same day crowns, they need to send the molds to a lab where the crown is fabricated, so you need to make another appointment with your dentist in order to have the final crown placed. In order to avoid missing work or important events, you may have to wait long periods of time between appointments. 

But same day crowns can help eliminate all of that hassle. Same day crowns are created with the CEREC system. CEREC is a computer-guided miniature mill that can mill your new crown quickly and precisely. To guide the milling of the crown, we use a digital scanner to make an exact model of your teeth and mouth. You can have a crown that fits perfectly without the use of uncomfortable impressions. Having dental crowns created and placed in one appointment allows you to see results straight away.

2. Protect your teeth with the best materials.

A dental crown protects your tooth and maintains your tooth’s structure. If you’re thinking about dental crowns, consider the materials that are used. 

Traditionally, a variety of metals have been used in dental crowns. While different types of metal are capable of maintaining the structure of your teeth, metal crowns are often less visually appealing to many people, and they can aggravate your gums. Using certain types of metals can also be hazardous to your health, especially if you have metal allergies or sensitivities. 

Lab-created crowns come in a variety of materials while our same day dental crowns are made of ceramic. Ceramic crowns are significantly more realistic in appearance than traditional metal crowns, are more comfortable, and can last for 15 years or more with appropriate oral hygiene. 

3. Improve your level of comfort quickly.

If you have broken or damaged teeth, tooth decay, or weak teeth, your teeth can cause you discomfort. You might avoid eating cold or hot foods, as well as foods that are difficult to chew, due to sensitivity in your teeth. It is also often hard to sleep if you experience pain in your teeth. Dental crowns can provide you with relief from your symptoms. 

Many dental practices don’t offer same day dental crowns, though, and waiting between appointments means you have to deal with the pain and discomfort for an extended period of time. Dr. Sanford Barr and Dr. Marianne Diachenko offer same day dental crowns, which means that your level of comfort when eating, talking, and sleeping will improve after only one appointment.

4. Boost your confidence and decrease your anxiety.

If you have tooth decay, broken teeth, or tooth discoloration, you may feel self-conscious about the appearance of your teeth. You might avoid smiling in photos or laughing or smiling in front of others. Feeling like you have to hide your teeth can take a toll on your confidence. A dental crown can give a damaged tooth a smooth, natural look and can make you feel happier with the look of your teeth. Receiving a same day dental crown can instantly help to lessen your anxiety about the appearance of your teeth. After you receive a same day dental crown, you’ll feel less anxious because you won’t have to worry about hiding your teeth. You can feel proud of how your teeth look when you smile, laugh, and talk.

5. Leave with a long-lasting solution.

Whether you need a dental crown for cosmetic reasons or for restorative work on your teeth, permanent dental crowns can be a great option. Permanent dental crowns are durable and last for years. With good oral hygiene, permanent dental crowns require minimal maintenance. 

If you go to a practice that can’t provide you with same day crowns, however, you’ll likely receive temporary dental crowns until your permanent crown is ready. Temporary crowns protect your teeth for a short period of time, but unlike a permanent crown, they are considerably less durable and not made for long-term wear. If you don’t want to wait to receive a reliable, long-term resolution, then a same day crown is the ideal choice for you.

Going to the dentist to get a dental crown doesn’t have to be a time-consuming and anxiety-provoking process. Same day crowns are a great option if you want to receive a comfortable and durable dental crown without having to make multiple appointments. Consider same day dental crowns to help improve your smile and your life.
