Do you need a crown but don't have time for multiple visits to the dentist? Dr. James Outlaw, your Winter Park dentist at Outlaw Dental, shares several benefits of same day crowns.
Less time at the dentist's office
Traditional crowns require two visits to your dentist's office. On the first visit, he'll file your tooth and make an impression of your mouth that will be sent to the dental laboratory that will create the crown. Approximately two weeks later, you'll return to receive your new crown. When you choose a same day crown, your dentist creates a ceramic or resin crown in his office, which means you'll only need one visit.
No need for temporary crown
If you opt for a traditional crown, you'll wear a temporary crown until your permanent crown is ready. Temporary crowns can feel a little bulky and can be damaged if you eat hard or sticky foods. Since same day crowns are made while you wait, a temporary crown isn't necessary.
No messy putty
A mouthful of messy dental putty is a thing of the past when you choose same day crowns. The same day crown system uses a 3D photograph of your mouth, rather than putty, to create a model of your mouth.
Reduced chance of an allergic reaction
Some crowns made in dental laboratories are constructed with a porcelain finish over a metal base. People who have metal allergies may experience sensitivity, pain and inflammation if they receive this type of crown. Because same day crowns are made of ceramic or resin, you don't have to worry about an allergic reaction.
