Same Day Crowns: A Modern Solution for Immediate Dental Restoration

Busy schedules, and sudden important life events like interviews, and weddings can make you anxious when you have sudden broken or severely damaged teeth. Pain and discomfort can be debilitating and negatively impact your important events, and quality of life. 

Thankfully, the  Ankeny dentists and their team of expert specialists offer same-day crowns that cut down your visit times and costs. These modern crowns have been trending and are excellent alternatives to traditional crowns. 

Understanding same-day crowns

A same-day crown is a shell that is tailored to enclose or cover a damaged or decayed tooth that is usually fabricated and placed in just a single appointment. This saves your time and significantly avoids long waiting periods. This is possible through advanced and innovative technology like CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic). CEREC crowns use specialized computer-aided design (CAD), and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) technology. 

They offer a quick and effective solution not only during emergencies but also when you are short of time to wait for regular conventional crowns.

  • Protect a weak tooth
  • Restore a broken tooth
  • Cover and support teeth with large extensive fillings 
  • Support and anchor dental bridges
  • Camouflage discolored teeth
  • Restore root canal-treated teeth
