An Introduction to Same-day Crowns

A crown is an exquisitely crafted covering, carefully tailored to closely resemble and replicate the natural appearance and feel of a tooth. Its purpose is to replace a damaged or disfigured tooth resulting from various causes such as decay, root canal treatment, staining, or irregular shape. By fitting seamlessly on top, it effectively restores the intended strength and functionality of the affected tooth.

With our advanced CEREC same-day process, we have the capability to design and create a custom crown that perfectly complements your smile, all in a single visit. This means you won’t need temporary crowns or impressions, making the entire process quick and convenient for you!

The New Leading Edge

In the past, obtaining a crown used to be a cumbersome process, necessitating up to three appointments and enduring the discomfort of wearing a notoriously uneasy temporary crown. However, our team has embraced innovative techniques and technological advancements, making the experience of getting a crown now remarkably smooth and hassle-free.

A few of these advantages include

  • At our facility, we employ an exceptionally precise and comfortable digital 3D scan, eliminating the need for messy impressions.
  • You’ll only need a single visit to undergo the entire treatment.
  • With reduced drilling, you can preserve more of your natural tooth structure.

Same-Day Crown Treatment

Step One: Examination

Our process begins with a thorough examination of your tooth to assess its condition and check for any signs of decay. Carefully, we remove the affected areas and proceed with a meticulous cleaning. In cases of stress fractures, a crown is employed to provide additional protection and prevent any further breakage along the fracture lines. We then shape your tooth to ensure a precise fit for the crown, guaranteeing optimal results.

Step Two: Creation

Next, we employ a cutting-edge 3D scanner to conduct highly accurate digital scans of your tooth, eliminating the need for traditional impressions or trays. These scans create an exceptionally detailed digital model of your new crown. While you wait, our skilled team expertly crafts the porcelain crown to perfection

Step Three: Implementation

Lastly, as soon as your new crown is prepared, it will be promptly bonded or cemented in place. Our team will meticulously ensure that it fits flawlessly, making any final adjustments if needed. Thanks to our streamlined procedure, there’s no need for additional appointments or temporary crowns. Once we give it a quick final polish, the process is complete, and you can enjoy your fully restored smile!

The Cost of a Same-day Crown

Out-of-pocket costs for dental crowns may vary according to the unique situation of every patient. A typical insurance plan usually leads to a single crown ranging between $200 to $600 and up. For patients without insurance, a reasonable estimate usually amounts between $800 to above $1200. While for many, a dental crown is a necessity to restore the functionality and aesthetic of a smile, we understand its cost is something many patients need to take into consideration before making a final decision.

The Deciding Factors of cost

• The type of crown you’re in need of

• Where the crown needs to be placed and the complexity of the procedure

• The number of crowns you require

• Combining crowns and other dental appliances, such as bridges

• The equipment and supplies necessary to accomplish your unique treatment

Always Remember…

It is crucial to understand that a dental practice cannot asses your situation over the phone, simply because each unique smile requires a unique strategy. It is necessary to visit a dentist and undergo an oral exam to indicate all of the treatment options suitable for your situation, and generate an accurate quote. This gives you the opportunity to contact your dental insurance before the procedure, making you fully aware of any out-of-pocket costs before you make a final decision.

Frequently Asked Questions

The need for crowns typically varies based on the tooth’s location within the mouth. Teeth positioned at the back, such as molars and premolars, which are responsible for chewing, often require crowns. On the other hand, teeth with different functions, like incisors or canines, usually do not necessitate crowns.

Compared to fillings, crowns offer significantly higher durability. The constant pressure of chewing or habits like clenching can lead to chipping or dislodging of fillings on the biting surfaces of molars. In contrast, a crown maintains its strength as a solid, unbroken surface from gumline to gumline, making it specifically engineered to withstand much greater force over an extended period.

The popularity of crowns stems from their ability to fully restore the functionality of your tooth, allowing you to open and close your jaw without any discomfort or pain. Moreover, crowns are meticulously crafted to seamlessly blend in with the shape and colour of your natural teeth. So much so, that over time, many of our clients have even forgotten which tooth is their original and which one is the crown. The result is a remarkably natural and indistinguishable appearance.

A post is not to be confused with a dental implant, as it doesn’t require surgical implantation into the jawbone. Rather, it acts as a medical-grade post that can be cemented into a prepared root canal, providing additional support and stability for a dental crown. This option is typically considered when there isn’t enough healthy tooth structure remaining to securely hold the crown in place. It serves as a valuable solution to reinforce the base and core of the crown, ensuring its reliable placement.

The experience of getting a crown usually varies based on the condition of your tooth and overall oral health. In most cases, the process is similar to getting a filling. We take great care to ensure that the specific area is adequately numbed, minimizing any discomfort during the procedure.

After the treatment, it’s normal to experience some sensitivity or soreness around the gums for a brief period. If you ever feel anxious about visiting the dentist, please don’t hesitate to inform us. We are here to address your concerns and create a comfortable and reassuring environment for your dental visit. Your comfort and peace of mind are important to us, and we’ll do everything possible to make your time with us as pleasant as can be.

Typically, the lifespan of dental crowns is around 15 years. However, with diligent care and proper maintenance, they have the potential to last for an extended period of 25-30 years.

Maintaining a dental crown is nearly identical to caring for a natural tooth. The same dental practices and advice you’ve received apply directly to keeping your crown in excellent condition! Regular brushing and flossing are crucial to keep the crown and the surrounding gum area clean and healthy. Moreover, attending routine dental checkups and cleanings is essential to monitor the crown’s condition and ensure its longevity over time. By following these practices, you can ensure the continued health and durability of your dental crown.
