Aspen Dental of Cache Valley Offers Same-Day Crowns
At Aspen Dental of Cache Valley, we have technology that allows us to create same-day crowns. They are made using a CAD-CAM (computer aided designing and computer aided manufacturing) machine. This means everything required to have a crown put in, from preparing the tooth to fitting and perfecting the final crown, can be accomplished in just one appointment. Also because it can be done in just a day, you don’t need a temporary crown. Same day crowns are better for the original tooth, as well, because they need less filing and preparation. Your dentist will create an exact 3D image of your tooth and crown using a computer. Then, the CAD-CAM machine will make a ceramic model of your tooth, and your dentist will fit the crown to the original tooth.
Same day crowns save you time and money. It only takes a few hours from start to finish for the whole process. It costs less than a traditional crown because you only have to pay for one appointment. You also don’t have the cost of a temporary crown to worry about. Dental impressions are not required, making the process more comfortable for you. In some cases, a traditional crown can be better than a same-day crown, because metal crowns are stronger and can make your smile look better. Same day crowns are still the better option, however, because they can be done in just a few hours, so you can return to your routine quickly, and prevent damage and decay to your teeth.
