Crowns are a classic smile solution when it comes to modern-day dentistry! But, even traditional practices can evolve to provide more convenient service. Same day crowns are a great option for those looking for quick and quality work. Here’s what you should know:
What Do Crowns Help With?
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped “caps” that are placed over weak teeth to provide protection. They are cemented into place and completely cover the visible part of the tooth above the gum line. One placed, a crown can restore the appearance of a misshapen tooth and the strength of the tooth.
Who is a Candidate for Crowns?
People get crowns for a multitude of reasons. And, the versatility makes it a popular smile solution. You may be a candidate for a crown if you have a tooth weakened by decay, a broken or worn-down tooth, a misshapen or discolored tooth, a dental implant or more.
If you are in a position to receive a crown your dentist will be able to tell during a regular visit or during a visit made specially to address the potential for a crown. Either way, your dentist will be able to address any concerns and lead you in the best direction.
What is the Crown Placement Procedure Like?
Crowns can be made of metal, porcelain, ceramic, or others, depending on what your dentist’s lab offers. The procedure – which no longer needs to take two visits – will begin by filing down the existing tooth. If you receive a root canal prior or need a foundation needed, there may be other preparatory demands that your dentist will address with you personally. But, with same day crowns, you can sit in the dental chair while the on-site technology makes your crown right away. It will then be placed and there will be slight adjustments will be made, if necessary.
