Same-day dental crowns are a modern dental technology that allows you to receive a custom-made dental crown in just one appointment. This process uses advanced computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology to create a precise and durable restoration for a damaged or weakened tooth.
Reasons You Need a Dental Crown
Dr. Jenny Cheung and associates may recommend a dental crown for functional or cosmetic reasons, such as:
- Tooth decay: If a tooth has extensive decay that cannot be repaired with a filling, a crown may be needed to restore the tooth’s structure and function.
- Cracked or broken tooth: If a tooth is cracked or broken, a crown can protect the tooth from further damage and restore its strength and function.
- Root canal therapy: After a root canal, a tooth may be weakened and require a crown to prevent further damage or breakage.
- Large filling: A large filling may weaken a tooth and increase the risk of fracture, in which case a crown may be needed to protect the tooth.
- Cosmetic improvement: A crown can also be used to improve the appearance of a tooth that is misshapen, discolored or otherwise aesthetically unappealing.
What To Expect
During a same-day crown procedure, our dentists will take a digital scan of your tooth using a specialized camera. This scan is used to create a 3D model of your tooth, which is then sent to a milling machine to carve your new crown out of a block of high-quality dental ceramic material.
Once the milling process is complete, we will check the fit and appearance of your new crown and make any necessary adjustments. The crown is then permanently bonded to your tooth, restoring its strength, function and appearance.
