Same-Day Dental Crowns
If you need a dental crown, you may be worried about the time and inconvenience of multiple appointments and temporary restorations. At Santa Fe Dental in Edmond, OK, we offer same-day dental crowns, which are custom-made and placed in a single appointment using advanced technology. This technology means you can leave our office with a fully restored tooth in just one visit without needing temporary crowns or multiple appointments. Our experienced dentists, Dr. Michael Hansen and Dr. Ryan Flake, are committed to providing our patients with the latest dental technology and techniques, including same-day crowns.
What are Same-Day Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are a type of dental restoration that covers a damaged or decayed tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength. Traditionally, dental crowns are made in a dental lab, requiring multiple appointments to complete the treatment. However, with same-day dental crowns, the restoration is designed, fabricated, and placed in a single visit.
Santa Fe Dental uses advanced technology and materials to create custom dental crowns in just one visit. Our CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) technology allows us to create a 3D digital image of your tooth and design a precise restoration that matches your natural teeth’ color, shape, and size.
What can Dental Crowns be Used to Correct?
Dental crowns are a versatile dental restoration that can help correct many dental issues. These custom-made restorations are designed to fit over a damaged or decayed tooth to restore its function, shape, and size. Dental crowns can help correct many issues, including:
Tooth Decay: We can use dental crowns to treat advanced tooth decay that has caused significant damage to the tooth. A crown can protect the tooth from further damage and restore its function and appearance.
Cracked or Chipped Teeth: If you have a cracked or chipped tooth, we can use a dental crown to cover and protect the damaged tooth. The crown will prevent further damage and improve the tooth’s appearance.
Worn-Down Teeth: Teeth worn down due to grinding or other factors can be restored with a dental crown. A crown can cover the worn surface of the tooth, restoring its original shape and size.
Misshapen or Discolored Teeth: Dental crowns can also be used to correct them, improving their appearance and restoring your confidence in your smile.
Tooth Loss: Dental crowns can be combined with dental implants or bridges to replace missing teeth. A dental crown is placed over the implant or bridge to create a natural-looking, functional restoration.
Dental crowns are a versatile and effective solution for many dental issues. At Santa Fe Dental in Edmond, OK, our experienced team can help determine if dental crowns are the right solution for your dental needs and goals.
Same-day dental crowns offer numerous benefits over traditional crown treatment, including:
- Convenience: Same-day crowns can be completed in just one visit, saving you time and reducing the number of appointments needed for treatment.
- Accuracy: CEREC technology allows for a more precise and accurate restoration, ensuring optimal function and aesthetics.
- Strength: Same-day crowns are made from high-quality ceramic material, which is strong and durable, providing long-lasting results.
- Aesthetics: Same-day crowns are custom-made to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, providing a seamless and natural-looking restoration.
- Preservation: Same-day crowns help preserve your tooth’s structure and prevent further damage or decay.
Benefits of Same-Day Dental Crown Treatment
The first step in same-day dental crown treatment is a consultation with one of our experienced dentists. During this consultation, we will examine your teeth and discuss your goals for treatment. We will also take X-rays or 3D images of your mouth to determine if same-day crowns are the right option for you.
If same-day crowns are the right option, we will begin the treatment by preparing your tooth for restoration. Preparation involves removing decay or damage from the tooth and shaping it to fit the crown.
Next, we will digitally scan your tooth using our CEREC technology. We will use this digital scan to design your custom restoration, which we will mill from a block of ceramic material in our office.
Once the restoration is milled, we will bond it to your tooth using a unique dental adhesive. We will make necessary adjustments to ensure the restoration fits comfortably and functions appropriately.
