Same Day Crowns
If you have a damaged or decayed tooth, it’s important to protect that tooth from bacteria and infection. Crowns are a traditional tool that have been used in dentistry for decades. When a crown is installed over an existing tooth, the existing tooth is protected from decay, bacteria and more.
Difference Between Traditional Crowns and Same Day Crowns
Traditional crowns take multiple days to install, because the dentist begins by taking a mold of the teeth and sending the mold to the lab. The lab must make the crown, send it back to the dentist, and then the dentist can make an appointment with the patient to finish installation.
Same day crowns in Fort Myers, FL, are different because they don’t need to be sent to a lab. The dentist can evaluate the patient, grind down the tooth enamel to prepare the tooth for the crown, and create the crown on-site. The crown is then placed on the tooth, cemented into place, and the patient can go home.
Benefits of Same Day Crowns
Many patients prefer same day crowns for their convenience. The benefits of same day crowns include:
- Less time spent at the dentist. Same day crowns allow the patient to get everything done in one day.
- Less expense. Depending on your insurance plan, you may find that same day crowns cost less than the traditional crowns, because one dental visit means one copay instead of two or more.
- Natural aesthetic. Your crown will be matched to the color of your teeth. Once installed, no one will be able to tell the difference between your same day crown and another type of crown.
