Am I a candidate for a same-day dental crown?

When it comes to same-day crowns, oral health, function, and overall smile goals are important factors to consider. In most cases, candidates should have good dental hygiene and healthy gums before treatment. If you have cavities or other oral health problems, we will recommend treating those problems before getting a same-day dental crown. Good oral health factors will increase the longevity and effectiveness of the dental crown.

What is the procedure for getting a dental crown?

Advances in dental technology have made it possible to provide a variety of treatments, like dental crowns, in a faster, more convenient, and more comfortable way. The procedure for getting a dental crown begins with preparing the tooth. We use a local anesthetic to numb the tooth before reshaping the enamel. We reshape the enamel to accommodate the newly designed crown. With digital imaging, our in-house milling machine converts these images into a new crown that matches the exact dimensions of your mouth. We will permanently and comfortably fit the crown, all during the same visit!

Does getting a dental crown hurt?

Dental crowns are one of the most common restorative dentistry procedures completed. A dental crown can significantly improve a patient’s oral health and function. While some patients may be nervous, getting a dental crown is a straightforward process, and our team will numb the area to encourage minimal discomfort. We also offer sedation dentistry should you feel extra nervous about the procedure.
