Same Day Crown FAQ Portland OR
Dental crowns are a great dental restoration solution, which can help to fix a wide range of issues, from tooth decay to dental cosmetic issues. However, the idea of spending several weeks awaiting your restoration is not all that pleasing. However, at Hunter Dental Care, we can offer you a faster and more convenient option for the delayed crown procedure – the same day crown procedure. Performed using CEREC crowns, the procedure takes a single dental visit - from evaluation to the placement of a custom crown on the damaged tooth.
CEREC crowns are custom-dental crowns that are designed based on your natural teeth using computer software. The design is then fed into a 3D CEREC printing machine, which creates the custom crown in a matter of minutes. This allows you to receive the crown on the same day as your initial appointment, instead of having to wait several weeks while your crown is being made in a dental lab.
CEREC crowns offer several advantages over standard dental crowns. These include:
How Long Do Same Day Crowns Last?
Whether you have a broken tooth or a cracked tooth, this crown works perfectly and helps to restore your smile. Although some people believe that these crowns are not as long lasting as traditional crowns, the truth is that CEREC crowns are just as effective and when you have good oral hygiene you do not need to worry about replacing this crown for a long time. Dental crowns typically last 10 to 15 years before needing to be replaced.
Same Day Crowns vs. Traditional Crowns?
The best part about a CEREC crown is that it is less invasive in comparison to a traditional crown. This simply means that when you come in for a traditional crown, the dentist needs to do a lot of drilling, which means you will lose a lot of your tooth for the crown to fit properly. With CEREC crowns, the measurement is more convenient and you manage to keep a lot of your actual tooth. This makes it really convenient for people who do not want to lose the majority of their tooth just because they need to fit a crown. Crowns also help to protect your tooth against further decay or infections and it keeps your mouth and your gums healthy.
The best part is that same day crowns are durable and you'll be able to enjoy your favorite food without having to worry about the crown coming off. If you want to get a CEREC crown fitted instantly then give us a call at (503) 256-3737 so you can book an appointment.
