Benefits of Same-Day Crowns – Warsaw, IN
By William Stofer on December 22, 2017
Dental damage is one of the most prevalent oral health problems to be treated by the experienced team of dentists at Dental Solutions. Whether it is caused by an oral injury, tooth decay, dental erosion, or simple wear and tear, it is very common for tooth enamel to become compromised. Once enamel is damaged, the sensitive nerves and tissues that lie at the center of the tooth become vulnerable to infection. Dental crowns rebuild a tooth that has suffered from moderate to severe dental damage. Dental crowns prevent infection, preserve the natural tooth, and restore a full range of oral functions. Traditional dental crowns are placed over two dental appointments, which are spread a few weeks apart. At our dental practice, we offer same-day crowns. Same-day crowns allow patients to restore a damaged tooth within a single dental appointment. Some of the many benefits of same-day crowns, as offered at our Warsaw, IN dental practice, can be found below.
Less Time at the Dental Office
At Dental Solutions, we put a lot of effort into creating a comfortable environment that will allow our patients to have a positive dental experience from start to finish. But as pleasant as our dental office may be, we know that patients have other places they need to be. Fitting one dental appointment into an already busy schedule can be difficult enough, so the thought of two dental appointments is a bit daunting to most patients. By offering same-day dental crowns, we essentially cut the treatment time in half, allowing our patients to spend less time at our office and more time checking things off their to-do lists.
No More Concerns About Temporary Crowns
When a traditional dental crown is placed, the tooth is reshaped at the first dental appointment. Since the tooth cannot be left unprotected during the time that the permanent crown is being fabricated, a temporary crown is placed. Temporary dental crowns are not as durable as a permanent crown. Patients may need to avoid certain foods while the temporary crown is in place and will need to be careful about oral care and practices while they are waiting for their permanent prosthetic. Temporary crowns also tend to be a little uncomfortable, as they are not completely customized to the patient’s mouth. With same-day crowns, patients can avoid temporary restorations altogether, along with all the hassles and worries that come along with them.
Durable Restorative Dental Care
Some patients worry if a same-day crown will be as strong or durable as a traditional dental crown. Same-day crowns are made using proven CEREC technology and the highest quality materials. Although same-day crowns are milled on our CEREC machine in just about an hour, patients do not have to compromise the strength, durability, or aesthetics of the dental crown. CEREC same-day crowns stand up to any traditional dental crown when it comes to quality, only they are much more convenient for the patient, and allow them to restore the strength and health of the smile in a matter of hours instead of weeks.
If you are in need of dental crown treatment to repair a damaged tooth, you owe it to yourself to consider same-day restorations. The experienced dentists at Dental Solutions can answer any questions you may have about same-day dental crown treatment. To learn more, contact us at your earliest convenience.
