Sometimes called chair-side crowns, same day dental crowns are natural-looking restorative caps made and applied in just one sitting, instead of multiple office visits.
Designed and handcrafted to replicate the original look and feel of your teeth, dental crowns are fabricated from porcelain, resin or metals (such as stainless steel or gold).
Dental crowns allow us to save teeth that would otherwise require extraction. Other benefits of having a crown include:
The procedure for same day dental crowns is essentially the same as traditional crowns, but minus the uncomfortable impressions and multiple office visits.
No more trays of impression material to suffer through. Digital scanning is much more comfortable, doesn't trigger a gag reflex, and is much faster to perform. Instead of using putty to make a physical impression of your teeth and making a temporary crown, Dr. Palmieri takes a 3D digital scan and uses a CAD-CAM machine to fabricate a highly customized crown in just minutes.
Patients receive their precisely milled unique crowns the same day reducing the amount of time the patient may have lost at work or with family and friends.
Due to local anesthetic, dental crowns are virtually painless. Our office also offers other amenities to control anxiety such as noise reduction headphones, Netflix and warm blankets to make the experience as comfortable as possible.
You may also experience minor discomfort in the hours after the anesthesia wears off. It’s uncommon, but the procedure could irritate your oral nerves and require a root canal if your teeth are severely weakened.
