Dental crowns are the perfect solution for damaged and severely decayed teeth, and they are the finishing touches on dental implants used to fix missing teeth. Now you can get dental crowns in Puyallup, WA in a single dental visit, instead of waiting for weeks and attending multiple appointments to get the smile that you want. If you’re ready to improve your dental health and your self-esteem, here are some of the reasons to smile about same-day crowns.
No Temporary Crowns
When you get dental crowns that are not completed in a single day, your dentist will provide you with a temporary crown to wear while your final crown is being created. Although your temporary piece may be an improvement over having a missing or damaged tooth, these crowns are notorious for being uncomfortable and unsightly. With same-day crowns, your dental work will be completed by the time you leave your appointment, so you won’t have to go through the discomfort and embarrassment of temporary crowns.
With traditional dental crowns, you have to attend multiple appointments before your treatment is complete. Each appointment involves a visit fee in addition to a fee for the services performed. Same-day crowns only require one appointment, so you can save the money that you would have spent on multiple appointments. Same-day crowns also do not require impressions to be sent to a labor the same number of injections, so the overall costs are less. Because a scan of your crown is saved digitally, you can also get a replacement crown for less than the cost of a traditional replacement crown, should you need a new one in the future.
Same-day crowns are made using CEREC technology, a cutting-edge CAD/CAM dentistry program that allows your dentist to create a personalized crown using 3D imaging in an hour. The imaging software makes it easy for your dentist to design your crown to fit your mouth more accurately than crowns created using impression molds.
