Why Wait? We Offer Same-Day Crown Restorations

Same-day dental crowns give you all the benefits of a traditional crown without the long wait. Dr. Roberto Palmieri offers same-day crowns right here in the Palmieri Dentistry office. Whether you need a crown to treat damaged or deeply stained teeth, we’ve got you covered!

Read on to learn more about same-day crowns and their benefits. 

Same-day crowns vs. traditional crowns

Dental crowns protect and restore your teeth. The various types of crowns include stainless steel, ceramic, porcelain, metal, and porcelain-fused-to-metal. 

Traditional crowns often take two visits a few weeks apart. At the first, your dentist takes impressions, prepares your tooth, and places a temporary crown. At the second, after the lab makes your custom crown, your dentist replaces the temporary crown with the permanent one.

For some people, even a few weeks with a temporary crown may be too long.

Same-day crowns skip the third-party lab, meaning your crown is made the same day you come in for an impression. This process is made possible through CAD/CAM software that Dr. Palmieri uses to manufacture laboratory-grade dental crowns in minutes. 

Unlike temporary crowns, your same-day crowns fit precisely because they’re made with advanced technology from Planmeca CAD/CAM.

Benefits of same-day crown restorations

The benefits of same-day crowns include:

They provide the same protections as traditional crowns

Just like traditional crowns, same-day crowns support the form and function of your tooth. That could mean strengthening a severely decayed tooth, protecting a tooth after a root canal, enhancing the appearance of stained or damaged teeth, or covering a dental implant. 

A same-day dental crown can also support a dental bridge. Two crowns hold up the bridge that spans the gap caused by a missing tooth or teeth.

They’re aesthetically pleasing

Accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Palmieri makes it his mission to create healthy, beautiful smiles. Same-day crowns are customizable, so we can adjust the shade and shape to make sure your new crown is flawless and blends perfectly with your smile.

They mean fewer trips to our office

Since Dr. Palmieri and our team don't have to wait for a third-party lab to create your crown, you can have a brand-new smile without a second appointment. This process saves you time and money and spares you from needing a temporary crown.

They don’t need as much tooth prep 

All teeth must be prepared to support a dental crown. The process requires us to shave your tooth before placing your permanent crown. Same-day crowns don’t need as much enamel shaved as with traditional crowns. 

They use 3D imaging

Dr. Palmieri uses 3D scans to produce accurate images of your affected tooth. He uses these images to design your new crown. This process results in a well-fitting crown and eliminates the need for physical impressions made with impression material

Physical impressions can cause discomfort, especially for those with a strong gag reflex. So, same-day crowns can be a more comfortable experience.
