Single Visit Crowns
ARIZONA SMILE CENTER: SAME DAY CROWNS
When a tooth cannot be restored with a filling or other type of restoration, a crown is placed on the existing tooth to strengthen and protect the tooth structure. Dental crowns may also be used to securely attach a bridge if the structure of the surrounding teeth is inadequate. They are designed to be cosmetically appealing. In some cases, same-day crowns are possible, so be sure to inquire.
With good oral hygiene and minimal wear and tear, your beautiful new dental crowns can last up to 15 years.
If you are getting a crown, a digital impression will be taken of your teeth and will have the crown made based off that impression. While the tooth is numb, the dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and shaping the surface to properly fit the crown.
Reasons for Crowns
- Broken or fractured teeth.
- Cosmetic enhancement.
- Decayed teeth.
- Fractured fillings.
- Large fillings.
