What Are One Day Crowns?

In the past, receiving a dental crown meant two to possibly three visits. In addition, the patient would potentially have to wear a temporary in between visits. However, we offer our patients a strong and lifelike alternative with one day crowns. What are one day crowns? How do you fabricate and place a restoration in just one visit?

Answer Key

  1. True. We can place a dental crown to repair a cracked or chipped tooth. We can also address advanced tooth decay, dental infection, or reshape a malformed or worn down tooth. They can also be used to help replace missing teeth by anchoring a bridge in place or restoring a dental implant.
  2. True. Using E4D technology, we can prepare the tooth and take digital impressions. We can use a computer to design the restoration and create a 3D model, which a machine uses to mill to the tooth from a solid block of ceramic. The new restoration will then be placed in the same visit.
  3. True. We use ceramic because the material can mimic the appearance of natural tooth enamel. In addition, the material is very durable and stain-resistant. Your new tooth will blend with your smile seamlessly.
  4. True. With the right care and attention your new crown can last for decades. We recommend brushing and flossing your teeth daily, as well as allowing your dentist to monitor your restoration with routine checkups and cleanings every six months.
