Are you dissatisfied with the stains on your teeth? Did you recently crack a tooth and need to get it treated soon? You may be eligible for same-day crowns. You can get these restorative covers in one day. This will allow you to get your teeth fixed faster, so you can go back to smiling and enjoying your favorite foods pain-free.
Roberto Palmieri, DMD, at Palmieri Dentistry, located in Mooresville, North Carolina, is very experienced in providing same-day crowns. And not only that, he’s one of just 400 dentists in the world who is an accredited member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, which means your teeth are in good hands.
Same-day crowns are just as natural-looking and effective as regular crowns. The difference is that getting regular crowns requires multiple visits to the dentist, but with same-day crowns, you get them in one visit.
They are designed to look and feel just like your original teeth. They can be made from resin, porcelain, or stainless metals. In general, same-day crowns can go on any tooth.
A dental crown can benefit you in a number of ways, including:
If you want a same-day crown, Dr. Palmieri will examine your teeth and discuss the problem you want to fix. He’ll then tell you what your options are and work with you on how to treat it.
Instead of taking impressions of your teeth to make a temporary crown, Dr. Palmieri takes a 3-D scan of your teeth. A special machine called a CAD-CAM then creates your custom crown. This unique process only takes a few minutes. Then, using local anesthesia, Dr. Palmieri applies the crown over your damaged tooth.
With same-day crowns, healing time is faster, and you get your permanent crown the same day. You don’t have to wait around with a temporary crown until you’re permanent one is ready like you have to with traditional crowns.
