Same-Day Dental Crowns

What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown provides a hard, protective covering for your tooth, often required if your tooth has become weak or damaged. It restores the shape and strength of your tooth, allowing you to eat and talk much easier than before. A dental crown can also help with your tooth’s appearance, ultimately improving your smile.

How Does the Process Differ for a Traditional Crown Versus a Same-Day Crown?

Traditional crowns involve multiple visits to your dentist, requiring manual impressions and the placement of a temporary crown while your permanent one is being prepared. This process can take weeks.

Same-day crowns allow The Masters Dental Group to prepare and place your permanent crown in a single appointment. A comfortable oral camera provides 3-D digital images of your tooth. The Masters Dental Group uses these images to design your crown digitally.

In minutes, a machine creates your crown from a single piece of porcelain, allowing The Masters Dental Group to cement it on before you leave the office.

What Are the Advantages of Same-Day Crowns?

Same-day dental crowns are the most modern technology available in dental restoration, providing numerous benefits to both you and your dental staff. Advantages include:

Time savings

No need for a temporary crown

Preserve more of your tooth and reduce the risk of further injury

Comparable cost to lab-produced traditional crown

Get back to your normal life in a day

Precise digital impressions

How Do I Know if Same-Day Crowns Are for Me?

If you need to replace a tooth toward the front of your mouth and appearance is your highest priority, a same-day crown might not facilitate the most natural looking result. In a lab, different colors of ceramic can be layered to achieve a specific match to your tooth’s color.

Offering Lab-Made Traditional Crowns, As Well As Same-Day Dentistry.

If you clench or grind your teeth often, you have a higher risk of breaking your crown. In this case, The Masters Dental Group might recommend using a lab-made crown, made from gold alloy, which is the most durable type of crown.

Same-day crowns provide high-quality dental restoration work, fast. Call The Masters Dental Group or schedule an appointment online to discuss if same-day crowns are right for you.
