Are Same Day Crowns As Durable As Those Made in a Lab?
Posted on 7/20/2018 by ARCHPOINT
We all agree that good oral hygiene leads to a healthy mouth and teeth that will last a very long time. There are times when, no matter how well you take care of our teeth, you may find yourself needing a crown.
Perhaps one or more of your teeth have been damaged, but not badly enough to be extracted? Capping a damaged tooth with a crown is the best way to protect it.
Not only from further deterioration and damage, but to strengthen it as well. When it comes to crowns, you have a couple of options. We can either fit you with a traditional lab made crown, or we can do a same-day crown.
What Is A Same Day Crown?
A same-day crown is exactly that, a crown that you get the same day that we prepare your tooth for it. Instead of waiting for a lab to make the crown and send it back, we complete the procedure that day in our office. Not only are our same-day crowns customized to your mouth, they're natural looking and much more convenient as there is no need for a temporary crown.
Since our same-day crowns are made out of ceramic material, they're more durable than the traditional crown. They have great strength and minimize your risk of breaking the tooth underneath the crown due to teeth clenching or hard biting.
Additionally, same-day crowns are faster and more convenient than a traditional crown. There is no need for multiple visits and you will be in and out of the office in just a few hours. Completely done in a single appointment!
Give us a call and schedule your next cleaning today, and when you're in, if you think you may require a crown, let us know. Let us show you how we're advancing to help you stay healthy!
