Same-day Crowns Restore Your Smile in a Single Visit
Finding time for dental repairs during your busy schedule can be difficult. In the past, patients who needed to receive a dental crown had to go through a multi-step process that would typically span several weeks. At Jeppson Dental, we can dramatically restore your smile after only one visit with same-day crowns at our Provo, UT, practice. Contact us today to find out how Dr. Joe Jeppson can use same-day crowns to repair your bite and rejuvenate your confidence.
Lasting Results Without the Waiting
For decades, dental crowns — also known as caps — have remained a trusted and effective restorative dental treatment. A crown is a custom restoration that is placed over a damaged tooth to provide support and help improve its function and appearance. Traditional dental crowns are crafted by technicians at an off-site laboratory based on impressions and photographs of your teeth. This conventional method requires you to schedule multiple visits, usually over the course of several weeks. Patients also need to wear a temporary crown while the permanent one is being created.
Same-day crowns eliminate the need for multiple visits, saving the patient considerable time and energy. Recent advances in technology have allowed skilled dentists like Dr. Jeppson to create high quality crowns directly in-office. Using our CEREC® (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) machine, we can fabricate and place your custom crown, often in a single visit. This innovative technology allows us to restore the function of your tooth and achieve your desired look without excessive waiting periods or multiple procedures.
The Same-day Crown Procedure
When you choose to receive a same-day crown at Jeppson Dental, we will begin by taking digital images of your teeth. The images are transferred directly to a chairside computer, which uses innovative software to create a detailed 3-D map of your tooth. Next, an advanced milling machine will use this information to fabricate your custom crown, matching it in shape and color to your natural smile. Dr. Jeppson will make final adjustments to ensure an optimal fit before securely attaching the new crown to your tooth. Unlike traditional crowns, this entire process is completed in a single trip to the dentist's office, so you can leave our practice feeling confident in your new smile.
Advantages of Same-day Crowns
Same-day CEREC® crowns boast an array of benefits over traditional dental crowns for the right patients. Many patients choose to have same-day crowns placed when they consider their many advantages:
- Same-day crowns are made from special dental-grade porcelain to mimic the look and sheen of natural enamel.
- Patients do not need to return to the office at a later time to complete their procedure.
- Patients do not have to wear a temporary restoration.
These strong, durable crowns can last for years with proper care. Crowns can be brushed and flossed just like natural teeth, and simply require periodic check-ups by your dentist.
