Frequently Asked Questions About Same Day Dentistry in Rochester MN

Question: Why do we need crowns?

Answer: A crown offers both restorative and cosmetic capabilities. On the restorative end, we use them to repair teeth that have become damaged or developed advanced tooth decay. We can also use them to restore a tooth following a root canal procedure.

Question: Do restorations have cosmetic capabilities?

Answer: Yes. If a tooth is misshapen, damaged, or even missing, then a crown can help return the smile to full function and appearance. For tooth loss, we use our ceramic crowns to anchor a dental bridge into place or to restore a single-tooth dental implant. We can also use them to mask the appearance of permanent discoloration.

Question: Will my same day crowns look natural?

Answer: Yes. The same day restorations are crafted from a solid block of ceramic. This material mimics the translucent appearance of natural tooth enamel. In addition to being stain-resistant, ceramic is also durable and can withstand powerful bite forces.

Question: How do I keep my restorations bright?

Answer: In order to keep your new same day crowns bright, you need to maintain good oral hygiene. This includes brushing your teeth every day, flossing each day, and attending checkups and dental cleanings twice a year. We can also answer any questions you have about receiving same day restorations or caring for them.
