What is a Dental Crown?

  • Helps to repair broken or damaged teeth
  • Cap that covers the full tooth

A dental crown is often used when a tooth is so damaged that the dentist is not able to repair the damage with a traditional filling. Crowns are caps that are shaped like the tooth that is missing and that cover the tooth entirely. They are often used when a tooth is very damaged, when there is extensive decay, or where the tooth simply cannot be repaired with fillings.

What is a Same Day Dental Crown

Crowns generally take several days to complete, you often first get the tooth filed down and cleaned out, then get the temporary crown, wait for your crown done, then come back for installation. The main difference with same day crowns is that you are not going to have to come back to get your permanent crown placed. Your dentist is going to have special equipment that can create a 3d image of the tooth that is being crowned, then create the crown the same day, in the office while you have the rest of the procedure done.

It only takes about an hour for this crown to be created so that while the dentist is preparing the tooth, the crown is being created so that it can be installed at the end of the visit. This helps you to get your tooth done quickly and easily so that you are not going to have to deal with making several visits. The main difference with this process is that it takes less time, and it may cost a little more.

This is a great option if you are busy, and you do not want to get out to your dental office several times to get your crown done and to get it placed.
