Helpful Information About Same-Day Dental Crowns

Because our Rochester, MN dentist’s office provides same-day dental crowns to our patients, we can take care of advanced cavities, dental injuries, and misshapen teeth in a shorter time than you might expect. CEREC technology lets us go through the steps of measuring a tooth, making a digital design of a custom crown, and physically produce the restoration at our office. When your crown is made, it will be ready to offer both functional and cosmetic support! People who are surprised to learn that they can receive a custom crown in one day can be happy to know that they have access to treatment on short notice, and that the restoration they receive is able to provide long-term support.

Can You Receive A Same-Day Crown?

Dental crowns are often needed when patients experience dental problems. An advanced cavity will require more support than dental fillings give, which is why crowns are used instead. If your dentist performs root canal therapy on your tooth to fully treat a cavity, a crown can be needed after to provide the right protection. Crowns are also used to treat dental injuries. Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth require permanent protection, as your enamel will not heal on its own.

What Will Your Same-Day Crown Look Like?

CEREC crowns are made from a ceramic material that can imitate healthy tooth structure. When your dental crown is placed, you can feel relieved to see how well it fits in with your smile. To make sure it has the right look, we will match it to the color of your natural teeth. While ceramic crowns can be used for cosmetic services, know that we do provide alternative treatment options, like the placement of porcelain veneers, that will require less preparatory work and fewer permanent changes to your tooth structure.

Can I Bite And Chew With A Same-Day Crown?

Dental injuries are more than just a cosmetic problem. An unhealthy tooth may be too sensitive or sore to use when you bite and chew. Fortunately, with treatment you can return to a more natural and comfortable bite. Unresolved bite troubles make people vulnerable to TMJ disorder and teeth grinding, which can create new difficulties for you.
