At Station Dental, we offer same-day crowns so that you don’t have to make multiple visits to the dentist. We have various uses for crowns and perform them almost daily. Instead of having patients come in on two different days for their dental crowns, we can provide same-day dental crowns at Station Dental.
Our dentists have the training and experience to fit our patients with same-day crowns. They’re also backed with all the necessary tools. The goal of same-day crowns is to make our patient’s lives easier. We understand how difficult it can be to take two days off work to see the dentist for a crown.
A dental crown is a dental appliance that fits over teeth like a cap. At Station Dental, we can use it for many different things. Crowns are usually placed over structurally weak teeth to give them the additional strength they need. They’re also used cosmetically to cover up damaged teeth. In cavities that are too big to be treated by a filling, we can use a crown.
Crowns are also valuable in tooth restoration. Dental bridges need to be attached to crowns. If a patient is getting an implant, the titanium screw is covered by an implant. It’s no surprise that we work with crowns almost every day, considering how useful they are in many different dental situations.
Previously, patients had to come in on two separate days to get crowns. During the first visit, we measure the affected tooth and send the measurements for manufacturing. When we get the crown back, we ask the patient to return on a different day so we can place it.
Now, we have a machine that can create crowns in our office, eliminating the need for a lab. The digital measurements we take are inserted into the machine, and the crown is created within a few hours. You’re free to go back to work or school and return later during the day. Instead of having to take multiple days off, you can get a crown in one day.
