Same-day crowns allow you to restore your smile in one dental appointment instead of 2-3. A dental crown, a custom-made cap shaped like a tooth, restores the shape, size, and color of damaged or decayed teeth while preventing additional harm. The crown forms a barrier around your tooth, sealing out bacteria and protecting the underlying tooth structure from injury.
Crowns typically take two appointments to place. During the first, the provider takes impressions of your teeth and sends the scans to a dental lab. The lab fabricates your crown, which can take 2-3 weeks.
However, same-day crowns eliminate the need for outside fabrication. Dr. Rizvi can create your custom-made crown in one visit with an onsite milling machine.
Same-day crowns are versatile restorations that can address dental concerns, including:
Same-day crowns can also join a bridge or connect to a dental implant. Dr. Rizvi may recommend placing crowns after root canal therapy to strengthen your treated teeth.
The process for getting same-day crowns involves several steps, including:
Dr. Rizvi performs a thorough dental exam and cleaning before preparing your tooth. She reduces the shape and size of your tooth to accommodate the crown.
Digital impressions use a scanning device to create accurate molds for your same-day crowns.
Computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology allows Dr. Rivzi to design and fabricate your same-day crowns onsite within minutes.
Once your crowns are ready, Dr. Rizvi places them, makes any necessary adjustments, and cements them to restore oral function and appearance.
Same-day crowns typically last 10-15 years. With proper care, you can ensure their longevity. Along with brushing, flossing, and scheduling regular dental exams and cleanings, avoiding hard, crunchy, chewy, and sticky foods can help protect your same-day crowns.
