The Top 4 Benefits Of Same Day Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are one of the best ways to treat dental damage. Whether you have experienced an oral injury or tooth decay, a crown can restore the integrity of your tooth, and prevent infection and further damage.
At the office of Cynthia L. Graves, DDS, we offer same day dental crowns for the nearby residents of Austin, Anderson Mill, Cedar Park, Leander and Round Rock. Using CEREC technology, Dr. Graves can restore your smile in just a single appointment. There are many benefits to same day dentistry. Here are just a few:
1. Less Time Spent on Dental Visits
Traditional dental crowns require at least two appointments at a dentist’s office. First, you come in to have your tooth prepared, and for the dentist to take impressions of your mouth. Then, the impressions are sent to a lab where the crown is manufactured. Two to three weeks later, the crown is placed at a second appointment.
With CEREC crowns, you can get a crown in a day. Your crown will be designed chairside by Dr. Graves, and placed in just a single appointment. This saves you both time and money!
2. No Temporary Crowns
Traditional two-visit crowns require temporary crowns to be placed while the permanent crown is manufactured off-site by a lab technician. These temporary crowns can be imperfectly fitting, hindering your ability to chew and speak normally. Temporaries can allow bacteria access to your prepared tooth and/or irritate your gums. Many times they fall off between visits or allow the teeth to shift making the final crown difficult to fit. Placing your beautiful final crown on the day of the preparation helps prevent these issues.
With same day smiles at Cynthia L Graves, DDS, you won’t need to bother with temporary crowns. You’ll get a crown in a day, and your smile will be restored to normal!
3. No More Uncomfortable Dental Impressions
Dental impressions are usually taken using putty and trays. They’re messy, uncomfortable, and especially difficult if you have a strong gag reflex or extra bone on your jaw. Plus they aren’t as accurate as our digital Omnicam impressions.
The CEREC Omnicam is a precise intraoral scanner used to take images of the teeth and create a 3D digital model of your mouth. This is more precise, faster and easier than traditional dental impressions, and more comfortable for patients.
4. Fast Emergency Service For Immediate Pain Relief
If you’ve cracked your tooth, or you’re suffering from a damaged tooth, the pain can be excruciating, and you’ll need emergency dentistry services right away.
Because we can manufacture crowns, inlays and onlays, and other tooth restorations within a single appointment, we can relieve your pain and restore your tooth to health in a single visit.
