Benefits of Same-Day Crowns
If you need to get a dental crown, you might choose the traditional dental crown procedure, but there are many reasons to get same-day crowns. With same-day crowns, you will enjoy:
- Convenient scheduling
- Less time spent at the dentist’s office
- No need for temporary crowns
- Great aesthetics
- Outstanding fit
- Long-lasting results
We know your schedule is busy, and it’s often hard enough to schedule one dental visit for your crown, let alone two. Same-day dental crowns are easy on your schedule, letting you take care of your dental needs without putting too many things on the back burner.
It’s not just the pain of scheduling a second appointment that matters: it’s your time. With less time spent going back and forth and less time at our office, you will find it easier to get everything done while taking care of your teeth.
Another problem with the traditional dental crown procedure is having to wear a temporary crown. Temporary crowns look okay, but they’re just strong enough to last until your permanent crown arrives–usually. Temporary crown failures happen, especially when your permanent crown gets delayed in shipping, and that can be a nuisance to your schedule and potentially damage your tooth.
Same-day crowns are as attractive as lab-made crowns–or better. When Dr. Siegel is responsible for making the crown from start to finish, he can control the aesthetics better and ensure it looks perfect in your mouth, including some last-minute color adjustments that can’t be achieved with lab-made crowns. If a lab-made crown doesn’t look right, you either have to accept it or send it back and wait another two weeks for the replacement.
With the precision of modern scanning and milling equipment, your same-day crown will fit perfectly. The fit for same-day crowns is as good as or better than the fit for crowns made at the lab.
Perhaps most importantly, same-day crowns are as strong as lab-made crowns. In practical use, they last just as long. You can expect a decade or more of good use out of your same-day crown.
