5 Advantages of Same-Day Crowns

Do you want to improve the appearance of your smile quickly? Same-day crowns might be what you need. In fact, there are five advantages to using same-day crowns that you may not be aware of. Read on to learn more.

1. They Look and Feel Like Real Teeth

Your dentist will ensure that your crown’s colour, shape and size matches your real teeth before they bond the crown to your tooth. Once your crown has been bonded, you can smile without feeling self-conscious as your crown will blend in seamlessly with your real teeth, therefore making your smile look great. You will barely notice your crown either, as it’s designed to feel just like a real tooth.

2. They’re Durable, Safe and Reliable

Same-day crowns are made out of either ceramic or porcelain. These materials are very similar to natural tooth enamel, making them aesthetically appealing. Not only that, but they are also very durable, making them a safe and reliable choice that can last for many years.

3. They’re Made and Placed Quickly

Patients used to have to wait weeks for their dental crowns to be created at an off-site laboratory, but now dental crowns can be made during a single appointment due to developments in dental crown technology. Same-day crowns can be placed in a very short amount of time, allowing patients to get back to work or home right after their appointment.

4. Temporary Crowns Are No Longer Necessary

Patients who opt to get a traditional dental crown will need to have a temporary crown placed in their mouth for a few weeks while their permanent crown is being made. Temporary crowns eventually need to be taken out, and as they’re placed in the mouth with a weak adhesive, it is possible that your crown might fall out of your mouth. It’s also possible that it might not fit properly, making it harder to chew. These hassles can be avoided by opting for a same-day crown instead.

5. They’re Made to Fit Your Mouth Perfectly

After your dentist has taken an impression of your teeth, they will utilise CAD/CAM technology to design a same-day crown that fits perfectly and feels comfortable. A special milling machine is used to sculpt it from a porcelain or ceramic block.
