Do you need to strengthen teeth with severe injuries or decay? If so, our dentist in Hobart, IN, may recommend same-day crowns. While the traditional dental crown procedure takes two or more visits, we’re able to streamline the process so everything is done in one appointment.
Here are the top five benefits of same-day dental crowns. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our office.
1. Done in One Visit to Our Office
The main advantage of same-day ceramic crowns is that they’re done in one appointment. This means that you won’t have to wait for an off-site lab to create your dental crown or return to our office for a second visit. Instead, our dentist is able to use computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) to create your tooth crown in one appointment.
2. No Uncomfortable Dental Impressions
It’s not uncommon to gag while having physical impressions of your teeth made. This is because a bulky tray filled with impression putty is being pressed firmly against the roof of your mouth. Not only does this trigger your gag reflex, but it can also make you dread sitting in the dentist’s chair.
The good news is that we’re able to avoid taking physical impressions of your teeth. Instead, we wave a digital scanner over your teeth which takes precise 3D models. This makes for a much more comfortable experience for the patient.
3. No Temporary Dental Crown
If you’re waiting on a third party to fabricate your dental crown, you’ll need a temporary crown to protect your tooth until your next appointment. Not only is this inconvenient for the patient, but it also lengthens the treatment time for the dental crown procedure. With our CAD/CAM technology, we’re able to plan and place your dental crown in one day. No temporary crowns necessary!
4. Crowns That Match the Rest of Your Smile
During your appointment, our dentist will use a shade guide to select a ceramic block that best matches the natural color of your smile. That way, no one will be able to tell what tooth received a dental crown. Same-day crowns also match the natural translucency of your teeth so you’ll be able to smile with confidence.
5. Stronger, Healthier Teeth
If our dentist recommends a dental crown, it’s usually to restore a weakened tooth after injury or decay. For example, you may be a candidate for a same-day crown after a root canal treatment to ensure your tooth remains strong and healthy after removing diseased pulp. Once we place the crown, we’ll be able to restore the full strength and appearance of your tooth.
