Same-day crowns can restore your smile in just one visit! Same-day crowns are caps that fit over your natural teeth to restore their shape, overall appearance, structure, and function. At Temecula Ridge Dentistry, we use CEREC technology to digitally scan your teeth and create custom-made crowns right in the office. The procedure saves you time and a second trip to the dentist. If you are interested in same-day crowns in Temecula, CA, contact us today to schedule your visit!
Reasons For Same-Day Crown Restorations
A same-day crown may be recommended if you have teeth that are discolored, decayed, misshapen or damaged. Dental crowns can improve the appearance of your smile and protect your tooth from further damage. CEREC same-day crowns look and feel like beautiful, natural teeth. Dr. Murphy and her team offer crowns after root canal therapy and with dental implant procedures. Crowns can also support dental bridges to replace missing teeth. To find out if a dental crown is right for you, Dr. Murphy reviews your medical and dental history. She also evaluates your teeth and gums and uses x-rays to assess the type and severity of tooth decay or damage.
What To Expect
When you arrive for a CEREC same-day crown, you rest in a comfortable dental chair in a relaxing room. Dr. Murphy will numb the treatment area and remove any tooth decay. She will then digitally scan your teeth so CEREC technology can create a custom-made dental crown. When your crown is ready during the same appointment, she permanently bonds it to your tooth, where it can remain for a lifetime when cared for properly. There’s no downtime after getting a crown, so you can resume normal activities right away!
