If you’re struggling with one or more teeth that are damaged or decayed, it can seem like a lifetime while waiting several weeks for a permanent replacement. However, with same-day dental crowns, you’ll be able to effectively restore your compromised pearly whites with a natural-looking and durable solution in just a single appointment! Not too familiar with the process? Read on to learn four things you should know about same-day dental crowns.

Fact #1: They Usually Take Two Hours to Complete

If completing your restoration treatment in a single visit isn’t enough, you’ll be happy to know that you can get your new crown in only two short hours! Compared to this, traditional options usually need two or three appointments to complete, which are spaced out over a few weeks to a whole month. This can sometimes mean using more of your paid time off or even missing classroom time to be at the dentist’s office. With same-day dental crowns, you won’t have to worry about shuffling your schedule around.

Fact #2: No Gross-Tasting, Messy Impressions Necessary

Many traditional dental crown treatments usually require taking gooey, messy, and bad-tasting impressions of your smile. Fortunately, this part of the process isn’t necessary for same-day alternatives. Unlike traditional restorations, CEREC technology utilizes a digital scanner that renders 3D models of your pearly whites. This provides more comfort and a higher level of accuracy for your impressions.  

Fact #3: They Aren’t Always More Expensive

It’s normal to assume that getting CEREC same-day dental crowns might cost more due to the use of cutting-edge technology. However, this isn’t always the case. Since your restoration treatment doesn’t require you to wear a provisional set or for a dental lab to fabricate your crown, you can end up saving money for both you and your dentist. Also, you won’t have to take time off work, so you can keep most of your PTO while avoiding needing to schedule multiple appointments that might require paying a co-pay.

Fact #4: They Are Custom-Crafted From Porcelain

The only thing that same-day and traditional dental crowns share in common is that they’re constructed out of porcelain material. Not only does this offer an incredibly durable restoration, but your tooth replacement will also reflect light similar to your natural enamel. This means you’ll be able to enjoy brand-new pearly whites without others even noticing them.

So, if you have a tooth that’s sustained significant decay or damage, you can quickly repair it with a same-day dental crown. Speak with your dentist if you’re interested, and they’ll be happy to determine if this is the best solution for your smile!
