Frequently Asked Questions About Same Day Crowns in Rochester, MN

Question: How do I know if I need a crown?

Answer: If you have an aching or chipped/cracked tooth then you may benefit from a dental restoration. Common reasons include sudden tooth sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures or a toothache that doesn’t subside after 48 hours.

Question: What functions do dental restorations serve?

Answer: We may place a dental restoration for a variety of reasons, such as repairing damaged teeth, address severe tooth decay, securing a dental bridge, restoring a dental implant, and completing a root canal procedure.

Question: How are same day crowns made?

Answer: First, we prepare the teeth by removing a small amount of structure. We then take digital impressions of the tooth with an intraoral camera. We use the images to create a 3D model of the tooth. After the doctor makes any changes to the design, we upload the information into the CEREC machine, which fabricates the tooth from a solid block of porcelain. We use ceramic because the material offers a natural looking appearance and durability.

Question: Will they be made from metal?

Answer: No. The ceramic we use is completely metal free. We do this to ensure the new restoration will blend seamlessly with your smile. If you have any questions or concerns about our same day crowns then please contact our office for more information.
