Having your tooth treated, restored, and protected in one day is the obvious benefit to same-day dental crowns. However, there are additional advantages.
Due to its in-house nature, our technology gives Dr. Dan Drake the ability to design a crown that fits comfortably in a short period of time. During the process he is also able to take digital impressions for potential future use.
If possible, avoiding a temporary crown is highly important! Temporary crowns are usually more susceptible to coming loose and causing injuries.
Its important to have your teeth restored as soon as possible! Broken, chipped, and damaged teeth affect your speech patterns, eating habits, and appearance. With same-day crowns your pain, eating, and speech are almost immediately restored. You wont have to deal with a weak, unreliable temporary crown that might chip or need to be replaced.
It saves money & time
Traditional crowns almost cost about the same as a same day crown. However, patients save money by not needing to pay for additional appointments and a temporary crown. Additionally, same day crown appointments only take 2-3 hours allowing you to get back to what’s important.
The Drawbacks of Same-Day Crowns
There are only a few disadvantages of same day crowns vs traditional crowns. Same day crowns tend to not be as durable and are more prone to wear and tear. These crowns are made of ceramic, which is less durable as metal or porcelain.
The other drawback to same day crowns is that they are the right fit for all patients. Your dentist may have issues using the imaging camera to get a good map of your tooth, if it is fractured under the gum line.
