Same Day Crowns: A Time Saver for Patients!

Time is a “non-renewable resource”. That means when it’s gone…it’s gone! If you’re like most of us, saving time is a high priority. If you need a crown, you need a same-day crown! This keeps you from coming back for multiple appointments, which takes a lot of time. In one appointment, a dental office that offers same-day crowns can complete your entire treatment, allowing you to get back to your life!

What if your dentist doesn’t offer same-day crowns? Think about the time away from work or your family. The time spent travelling to and from the dental office. Waiting in the lobby if someone is running behind. You get the picture. Same-day crowns just make sense!

Looking for another benefit to same-day crowns? How about fewer injections to numb the area around your tooth? Since you are already numb, you will be able to avoid subsequent injections on future visits. While this may not be a big deal to many people, for those with needle phobia it will be a real game changer!

The technology available in today’s modern dental practice makes it easier than ever to save time with same-day crowns. Our office uses CEREC® (Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic) to create metal-free, tooth colored restorations. The milling unit located in our office creates the needed restoration, matching the color to your original tooth.

If your dentist tells you that you need a crown, ask about same-day crowns. If his or her office doesn’t offer them, you may want to consider the time factor involved in going the “traditional” route of waiting for your crown to be built in a lab and then sent to your dentist. Are you willing to give up the extra time involved in a second visit? If you are like a lot of people, you will be looking to save time whenever possible.
