Same Day Crowns And The Benefits

Same day crowns have revolutionised the way dental crowns are placed, making the process quicker and more convenient for patients. Traditionally, getting a dental crown placed meant multiple appointments spread out over several weeks. The first appointment would involve preparing the tooth, taking impressions, and placing a temporary crown while the permanent crown was being fabricated in a dental lab. This waiting period could be inconvenient and uncomfortable for patients, as they had to deal with the temporary crown potentially coming loose and causing discomfort. With same day crowns, all of this hassle is eliminated. The entire process can be completed in a single appointment, thanks to advancements in technology. Using computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology, the dentist can create a customised crown right in the office while the patient waits. The process begins with the dentist preparing the tooth and taking digital impressions using a special scanning camera. The images are then uploaded to a computer, where the dentist can design the crown to match the shape and colour of the patient’s natural teeth. The design is then sent to a milling machine, which prepares the crown. Once the crown is ready, it is bonded to the tooth, completing the restoration. The entire process can usually be completed in just a couple of hours, allowing patients to leave the office with a fully restored smile on the same day. Not only do same day crowns save time and inconvenience for patients, but they also offer other benefits. The digital impressions are more comfortable and quicker. The ceramic material used is also durable and natural-looking, blending in seamlessly with the rest of the teeth. Overall, same day crowns are a convenient and efficient option for patients in need of dental crowns. With advanced technology and skilled dentists, getting a crown placed has never been easier.

So, if you ever find yourself in need of a dental crown, consider asking your dentist about same day crowns for a fast and convenient solution
