Making an appointment with the dentist can be a time-consuming project. There may be limited availability with the dentist and you may have to take time away from work. Same day crowns are available with some dentists, and as a result, can save you a significant amount of time so that you can focus on the things that you need to do.
A dentist will often suggest dental crowns to improve the appearance and restore the overall shape and size of a tooth. It will fully and case a tooth that may lie at or above the line of the gum. If there is tooth decay, this will be a necessity to protect your teeth from future problems. This may be a necessity prior to invisible braces.
Whether the tooth is cracked, decaying or otherwise broken, a crown can be the best possible solution. Same day crowns are always advantageous because it provides protection on the spot as opposed to waiting for the solution to be installed.
It is important to look at how crowns are made. Permanent crowns can be made from the ceramic, resin, stainless steel, or porcelain that is fused to metal.
The crowns will need to be molded to fit your mouth, and therefore can take several days to prepare. This means that in the interim, you have to wait and ensure that your teeth are not exposed to anything that could damage them further. Additionally, you will need to make another appointment to visit your dentist.
Remembering how much time it took to create the first appointment, having to create a second appointment means taking more time out of your workweek, and potentially requesting more time away from work. This may be a significant inconvenience and may not even be possible based upon your line of work.
Same day crowns can be used as a permanent solution that allows you to get the crown that you need without having to make multiple visits to the dentist. You will be able to go in for the crown and have it fit and installed at the same time. This is going to save you a substantial amount of time and minimize the risk for damaging the tooth that the crown goes over while you wait.
Not every dentist offers this kind of service and therefore you will want to find one that does. You may already know that you are going to need a crown based upon your last dental visit and because of the condition of your teeth. When you make an appointment to see the dentist, you can ask to find out whether crowns can be made and installed on the same day so that you know how much time it is going to take out of your schedule.
When you are a busy person, same day crowns can make a lot of sense.
