FAQs About Same Day Crowns

Are you wondering whether same day crowns are better than traditional crowns? Do you want to know how long same day crowns are expected to last and how much they cost? You can get these and other questions answered with the help of this blog post, which contains a number of frequently asked questions about same day crowns. Read on to learn more.

What Are Same Day Crowns?

Same day crowns are identical to traditional crowns in that they cover and support a compromised tooth with a material that mimics the natural shape and colour of your teeth. The only significant difference is that they only take a few hours to create rather than a few weeks.

Are They Better than Traditional Crowns?

Using state-of-the-art digital scanners, highly accurate impressions of your teeth can be created that capture the smallest crevices and shape variations. This gives same day crowns a lifelike feel and appearance compared to traditional crowns. In addition, they circumvent the need for a poorly fitted temporary crown that can expose your tooth to bacteria.

Is the Process Painful or Uncomfortable?

Same day crowns are considered to be less painful and uncomfortable than traditional methods. Fewer injections are required, and no sticky putty or uncomfortable impression trays are used. The procedure involves shaping your tooth and removing the decay, which may require local anaesthetic, but the effects are mild.

How Long Do They Last?

With sufficient care, same day crowns can last for years. Made from ceramic, they aren’t quite as durable or long-lasting as metal or porcelain crowns, but with regular brushing, flossing and dental check-ups, you can expect your crown to remain intact for a decade or longer.

How Much Do They Cost?

The cost of same day crowns will depend on the clinic and the dental extras insurance you hold. Given that only one visit is needed, however, appointment-related costs are usually lower than traditional crowns.
