For many years, porcelain crowns have been one of the preferable ways to restore a tooth that has sustained some type of damage. However, the traditional crown process has always been a time-consuming one, oftentimes involving several trips to the dentist and several days of wait time between each appointment. Same-day crowns are a much more effective procedure. Here are a few things you will want to know about same-day crowns in Lincoln, NE, at Korte Family Dentistry.
You can have your new crown in as little as a few hours.
The normal crown-making and placing process can take several office visits to complete. However, same-day crowns are made efficiently and in a high-quality way within just a few short hours. The use of modern technology allows the dentist to capture measurements, make the crown, and place the crown with little time between the steps. Your procedure will be minimally invasive, not involve messy impression trays, and will be done in a short amount of time while you are in the office.
Same-day crowns are just as high-quality as traditional crowns.
CEREC restoration methods involve using only the highest quality ceramic materials to create your crown. Therefore, your same-day crown is going to come out just as strong and just as durable as any other crown that may take longer to make. It is not uncommon for the crown to last as long as five to ten years or more.
Digital imaging ensures single-visit crowns are the perfect fit.
Using digital imagery during your visit allows the dentist to achieve the most precise and accurate measurements for your new crown. These measurements are so precise that additional adjustments are rarely necessary once the crown is made and the crown fits seamlessly in place with the very first fitting.
Cosmetic issues with your smile can be a hit to your self-confidence, but with same-day crowns, you can walk in with a problem and walk away as confident as ever.
