What are same-day crowns?

Same-day crowns are dental prosthetics fitted during a single visit to Impressive Dental Care. Your dentist makes your same-day crowns to match your natural teeth’s shapes, sizes, and colors.

Your dentist color-matches the material of your same-day crowns to the natural shade of your teeth. You can have your teeth whitened beforehand if you choose to do so.

These crowns restore broken or weak teeth. Your dentist examines and prepares your tooth before taking impressions using 3D digital technology.

Using the scans of your teeth, your dentist mills your crowns in the Impressive Dental Care office. Once they’re ready, your dentist makes final adjustments before permanently bonding them to the prepared teeth.

Who can benefit from same-day crowns?

Same-day crowns are beneficial for busy people who need to restore one or more teeth but don’t have the time for several appointments. You can get custom same-day crowns to restore teeth that are:

  • Cracked or broken
  • Damaged by cavities
  • Missing their pulp after root canals
  • Heavily discolored

Same-day crowns don’t only improve your smile’s appearance. They also restore the original function of damaged teeth or those prone to damage. Once in place, your same-day crowns function just like your original teeth, so you can chew and speak without worry.

How can I maintain my same-day crowns?

Once your same-day crowns are bonded in place, you won’t want to damage the improved appearance of your smile. Impressive Dental Care gives you detailed instructions on caring for your same-day crowns to make them last as long as possible.

For the most part, you should care for your crowns as you care for your natural teeth. Following these instructions helps make your crowns last.

  • Brush over and around the crown twice a day
  • Floss between your crowns and teeth once a day, including below the gumline
  • Come in for professional dental cleanings every six months
  • Avoid using your teeth for cutting or tearing
  • Avoid biting down on solid objects like candies, seeds, or ice

As long as you take proper care of your crowns and continue getting the dental work you need, you can expect your same-day crowns to last 15 years.
