A fractured or severely decayed tooth is often associated with discomfort and inconvenience. Attending multiple dental appointments to obtain a new crown can further add to the hassle. At River Park Dental, Dr. Phing Saurer is familiar with innovative technology used to create same-day crowns, so his patients can save time and optimize their oral health. Patients near Dublin, Columbus, Hilliard, and Worthington/UA, OH have access to immediate dental treatment that can provide beautiful, natural-looking results.
What are same-day crowns?
Using computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), Dr. Saurer can create your customized crown in a single dental appointment. Same-day crowns are an excellent option for patients who need a new fitted crown or for those who are looking to replace existing restorations. At River Park Dental, Dr. Saurer thoroughly assesses your teeth and dental history during an initial consultation to determine if same-day crowns are right for you.
How can same-day crowns save you more time?
Same-day crowns remove the time needed to obtain impressions of your teeth and to receive your final restoration from an off-site laboratory. This means that you can be fitted for your crown and walk out of your first appointment with a beautiful smile without the hassle of scheduling a follow-up appointment.
What other same-day restorations are available?
Dr. Saurer has used the same computer-aided technology to create custom, bridges, inlays, and onlays in a single appointment. Each restoration is made from long-lasting, durable materials that fit the unique dental needs of each patient. Crowns can be made using medical-grade ceramics, porcelain fused to a metal substrate or a precious metal such as gold.
Candidates for same-day crowns
Individuals are ideal candidates for same-day crown restoration care if they:
- Have broken or cracked teeth
- Are displeased with existing restorations
- Have moderate tooth decay
- Need to finish a dental implant procedure
- Need to replace large fillings
Dr. Saurer will measure your teeth and assess the current health status of your gums and jawbone to see if a same-day crown is appropriate for you.
How the treatment process works
During your appointment at River Park Dental, Dr. Saurer collects digital impressions of your teeth with a virtually painless, electric scan. The measurements are uploaded, and your restoration is milled through a machine. Once the crown is ready, Dr. Saurer polishes and prepares it for your fitting. Patients are free to return home the same day with little to no downtime.
How long do same-day crowns last?
With the proper care and hygiene practices, same-day crowns have the potential to last many years without the need for repair or replacement. Get more mileage out of your same-day crowns by practicing the following tips:
- Brush and floss twice daily
- Avoid chewing excessively hard or sticky foods
- Eat nutritious meals
- Attend regular dental check-ups and cleanings
