If you have a fractured or broken tooth, are experiencing pain when chewing or exposed to hot or cold temperatures, or want to eliminate unsightly metal fillings or crowns, then dental crowns might be a good option for you. Dental Crowns cover the visible surface of the affected tooth, adding durability and stability to it.
Same-day dental crowns are an option that we offer on a case by case basis to patients who would benefit from the procedure. They allow patients to come to our office and leave within a couple hours with their final dental crown in place that same day. This eliminates the need to have a temporary crown placed and then another appointment scheduled for the placement of the final.
Our Same-Day Crowns are made with our Cerec machine that scans the mouth to get the appropriate measurements of your tooth and surrounding teeth, and then makes your crown right there in the office. These restorations are very strong and durable and made out of the highest quality porcelain available. In some cases, a gold crown might be recommended for your posterior teeth (back teeth) if you grind or clench your teeth a lot.
Gold crowns are different from porcelain crowns, and the cost differ between the two and you may want to talk about your budget as well with the dentist. Your dentist will discuss with you the types of crowns available and give you a recommendation based on your particular situation.
