Why Patients are Choosing Same Day Crowns
Dental crowns can give you a smile that hides a lot of dental issues, including gaps, cracks, discoloration and crooked teeth. In the past, the procedure was complicated and would require two appointments and several weeks to get your new smile. However, thanks to technological advances, you can now get same-day crowns, which basically means that your new teeth are designed and fitted on the same day.
This innovative technology allows the dentist to use an in-office machine to create quality crowns on the day of the dental appointment. Like traditional crowns which are fabricated at a laboratory off-site, same day crowns are protective caps used to restore a cracked tooth, to cover a dental implant or to restore a tooth after a root canal.
However, there are a lot of people who are skeptical of new technology. One of the major questions people ask is whether there is any a dental difference between traditional and same-day crown procedures. The answer is yes.
