5 Benefits of a Same-Day Dental Crown

Same Day Crown Dentists Ann Arbor MI

Our Ann Arbor, MI, dentists may recommend a same-day dental crown to restore an injured or decayed tooth. Unlike traditional dental crowns, same-day crowns are planned and placed in one appointment.

This means that you won’t have to deal with an uncomfortable temporary crown and the hassle of scheduling a second appointment. Instead, you’ll be able to enjoy a new dental crown that looks and feels natural.

Here are the top 5 benefits of getting a same-day dental crown.

1. Done in One Appointment

In the past, the dental crown procedure took at least 2 trips to the dentist. This was because the dentist had to send the physical impressions of your teeth to an offsite lab. With digital impressions, there’s no waiting for a third party during your appointment. Instead, our dentists will be able to plan and place your new same-day crown in one visit to our Ann Arbor, MI, dental office.

2. No Messy Impressions

Traditional dental impressions are messy. While most of the putty stays in the trays, some of it may dribble out onto your shirt when it mixes with your saliva. The good news is that we’ll drape a paper bib over your shirt to keep you clean and dry during your appointment.

However, having to undergo such a messy procedure can still be a hassle. For this reason, many of our patients prefer digital dental impressions over traditional dental impressions.

3. No Testing Your Gag Reflex

Nothing is more uncomfortable than having a tray of impression putty pressed firmly against the roof of your mouth. This tests your gag reflex and increases your discomfort during your appointment. The good news is that our dentists are able to take highly accurate digital impressions with a handheld device that scans your smile and takes precise 3D measurements. This process is minimally invasive and doesn’t make you react unfavorably.

4. No Temporary Dental Crown

In order to place a dental crown, we have to file down and shape the receiving tooth to create adequate space. With our CEREC technology, we’re able to plan and place your dental crown over your tooth using computer-aided design and manufacturing. This streamlined process makes it possible for you to get your permanent dental crown in a single appointment.

If you had a third-party lab fabricate your crown, you would need a temporary crown to protect your tooth while you waited for your next appointment. By eliminating the need for a temporary dental crown, we’re able to improve the comfort and convenience of your experience.

5. A Tooth That Looks and Feels Natural

A CEREC same-day crown is made out of a ceramic that matches the exact color and translucency of your enamel. This means that no one will be able to tell what tooth received a dental crown. Instead, you’ll be able to enjoy a healthier, more attractive smile without feeling self-conscious. CEREC crowns are also durable, which means you’ll be able to continue eating your favorite foods.
