One of the disadvantages of getting dental work is needing to wait for the replacement teeth that you’re getting to come back from the laboratory. However, thanks to innovative dental technology, some patients no longer need to wait on their new teeth. Some options like dental crowns are available the same day your dentist orders them.
Instead of needing to wait two weeks or more to have our laboratories customize a crown for you, our dentist at Embrace Dental can see to it that you go home with a crown on the same day they recommend it to you. Same-day dental crowns in Sparks, NV are metal-free options that we can make to fit your tooth perfectly.
Our dentist has access to the latest dental technology, such as CAD/CAM, that uses digital imaging technology that takes an image of the injured tooth instead of impressions, which can be uncomfortable. The image is then displayed on the screen so that the machine can then construct the crown.
Once it is ready, your dentist will apply the crown to the tooth, cementing it in with an adhesive so that it permanently covers your damaged tooth. Instead of waiting two weeks or more for a crown, this process takes around an hour before our dentist has one ready to place over your tooth.
Like crowns that take some time to make, same-day versions consist of porcelain, which is also known as ceramic. They look like real teeth because our laboratory at Embrace Dental can match the shade of your teeth to allow the crown to blend with your natural teeth.
After our dentist in Sparks, NV adheres the crown to your tooth, most people won’t be able to tell the crown is not your real tooth because we make them life-like and fit in with your other teeth. Also, they function like your natural teeth as well, allowing you to eat the foods you love and maintain your appearance.
Same-day dental crowns are also durable because. With proper care, they can last the same amount of time that traditional crowns do, which can be up to 25 years. If you need a crown for a tooth, talk to our dentist about same-day crowns.
