At Smyl Dentistry we offer same-day crowns.
Dental crowns made of composite and resin are used to restore the look and function of a tooth. Because adult teeth can never repair themselves dental intervention is required to regain a tooth’s form so it can align properly with the rest of the teeth.
Crowns are hollow and fit over top of a filed down natural tooth. A crown fits over the natural tooth like a cap and protects the tooth against harmful bacteria and further damage. Crowns are low-maintenance - daily brushing and flossing is enough to keep them in good condition. You have options when it comes to choosing the type of crown you receive but the most convenient option is CEREC. CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. which is often made out of a strong ceramic and is designed,manufactured, and installed using computer-assisted technology. Typically one of these crowns is created and placed in a single afternoon.
Typical crowns can take as long as 2 weeks to be created and fitted. With CEREC you can walk into a dentist’s office and walk out with your new crown the very same day.
The dentist will use computer-aided design to capture digital images of your tooth and jaw, design the crown, and then create that crown for installation — all while you relax at the office. At Smyl Dentistry we encourage our patients to enjoy Netflix, catch up on work or even take a walk while your crown is being created.
Because it lacks a metal core, a CEREC crown tends to look more natural, fitting in seamlessly with the surrounding teeth.
Here are reasons why someone may need a dental crown
Delayed treatment with dental crowns can cause damage to worsen and require invasive procedures like a root canal or the removal of the tooth if the problem is beyond repair.
It’s best to get a crown as soon as possible to avoid complications.
