Regain Your Confidence In 1 Day With Same-Day Dental Crowns

It is the fastest and most convenient way to get a beautiful smile. It restores the form and function of your teeth in just one dental visit.
A dental crown is a cover that fits over the entire surface of an affected natural tooth. It provides additional strength and security to protect it from damage or decay.
Same-day crowns provide a fast, convenient alternative to traditional dental crowns. This is worn over the natural tooth for restoration, protection, and aesthetic enhancement. They are made from tooth-coloured materials and do not require temporary crowns during dental treatment.
At Gateways Dental Centre, we offer a wide range of treatments and dental services. A common procedure for tooth restoration is the use of same-day dental crown technology called CEREC® or chair-side crowns. We have invested heavily in this new technology because it allows us to provide our patients with quality dental restorations and excellent service. With this technology, our team of dentists can produce high-quality custom-made dental crowns on-site in one session.

Common Dental Problems that Same-Day Dental Crowns Can Fix

These are the common dental issues that scaling and cleaning can fix:

1.) Restoration after root canal therapy

After root canal treatment, a dental crown is often fitted to reinforce the tooth and minimise the likelihood of treatment failure. Root canal treatments are frequently done on infected teeth to remove the infection while preserving the tooth. This avoids the need for extraction; however, the tooth is vulnerable and at risk of fracturing due to chewing pressure, so the dental crown protects the tooth.

2.) Large dental fillings

Your tooth could break if it has a lot of cavities or a few large cavities. If you have a lot of fillings or large fillings, the tooth is more fragile, so the tooth structure and filling may break. A crown restores the tooth’s strength by entirely covering it. This provides for uniform pressure distribution over the tooth. It also keeps the teeth from decay and infection.

3.) Cracked tooth

When your tooth has a small crack, it becomes a weak spot. The more you chew or grind the tooth, the more likely it will break down completely. If the tooth breaks, your dentist may fix it, but if the damage is too severe, the tooth may need to be removed. This is why it’s essential to see your dentist right away. Even if the tooth is restored, you will still require a crown to keep it from breaking again.

4.) Worn-down enamel

If you have worn-down enamel, your dental practitioner may suggest dental crowns to serve as replacement enamel to preserve the tooth. Based on the placement of teeth and the severity of the damage, the dentist will decide if porcelain veneers or dental crowns are the best options. Tooth veneers are preferred if only your front teeth are compromised, as they require less tooth tissue removal.

The Benefits of Same-Day Dental Crowns

An entire restoration can be performed in a single dental clinic visit. The patient is not required to wear a temporary crown or return later to finish the dental procedure.
Same-day crowns are great for repairing the structure of your teeth after dental trauma because they look completely natural.
We use CEREC technology to build dental crowns that are durable and long-lasting.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Crowns

Same-day crowns are easy and quick, making them ideal for extremely busy or apprehensive individuals. They are not suitable for people with substantial decay or tooth loss, since these conditions demand additional time, preparation, and alternative dental preservation or restoration methods.

People who are good candidates for same-day dental crowns usually have a combination of cosmetic and structural problems that weaken their teeth. These problems include things like:

  • An intact tooth with some minor fractures or cracks that do not necessitate removal.
  • Dental fillings that are too large to appear natural.
  • An inability to repair decayed teeth to look natural.
  • Missing teeth
  • Restoration after root canal therapy when the structure of the tooth has been compromised.
  • Severe tooth stains
  • Uneven or misshapen teeth
  •  In the first step, decay is removed, and the tooth is shaped to fit perfectly inside the crown.
  • Digital images of your teeth are taken using a scanning device.
  • The computer’s software uses these photos to create a 3D model of the tooth. Once the design is digitally prepared, it is sent to another machine that cuts a block of ceramic into the shape of the crown.
  •  Your dentist will place the crown with dental cement after making it. Depending on its complexity, it could take anywhere between one and two hours to complete your crown.

Same-day crowns are not available to every dentist. If you do not have a dental health fund, get a quote for the anticipated cost of a dental crown.

Same-Day Dental Crowns

  • The dental procedure doesn’t take any extra time away from work or other obligations.
  • There is no need to have temporary crowns while waiting for the dental crown to be made at the dental lab.
  • Adjustments may be made immediately because the patient is present during the preparation and shaping.

Traditional Dental Crowns

  • They’re made in a dental laboratory and are usually more robust and created from more durable materials.
  • A conventional dental crown needs at least two sessions, spaced around two weeks apart, since the dental appliance is created in a dental laboratory.
  • A temporary crown is fitted to safeguard the dental work, but because it is not a permanent solution, it tends to slip off.

Same-day crowns are as durable, and they can last for five to fifteen years if given the proper dental care. Maintaining proper oral hygiene is essential for its longevity and overall oral health.

  • The tooth beneath must still be kept from decay or gum disease. Therefore, as a result, you should practise proper oral care. These include brushing twice daily and regular flossing, particularly around the crown area, where the gum meets the tooth.
  • Avoid biting on hard or chewy foods to prevent the porcelain from shattering. 
  • Use a mouthguard if you grind at night to avoid having broken teeth.
  • Refrain from eating sugary or acidic foods to prevent tooth decay. 
  • Visit the dentist twice a year for professional teeth cleaning. The dentist could also check if any oral disease needs to be treated.
  • Porcelain fused to metal crowns – $1529 to $1760 per tooth.
  • Ceramic Crowns / Porcelain Crowns – $1539 – $1890 per tooth.
  • Metal alloy and gold crowns – $1614 – $2131 per tooth, subject to current gold and metal prices.
