When a tooth breaks, the immediate discomfort isn’t the only thing your dentist is concerned about. If the damage isn’t repaired as soon as possible, then it can grow worse over time, eventually becoming too damaged to save. With a same-day dental crown, however, your dentist can repair your broken tooth (and alleviate your toothache) in just a single day. Without having to wait weeks for your restoration to be crafted, you have a much better chance of preserving the healthy tooth structure that still remains undamaged.
Why Time Matters
Your teeth are strong. In fact, they’re the most resilient parts of your body. However, once a tooth becomes damaged, it can’t repair itself. There are no cells to close the wound or program your tooth structure to reattach itself. Because a fracture or break weakens the tooth, the damage will grow worse the more its exposed to your bite’s pressure (i.e., with every bite and chew you take).
What Is a Same-Day Crown?
To reduce the amount of damage your broken tooth sustains and help you get back to enjoying your smile sooner, we often recommend a digitally designed, same-day crown. Digital imaging and design technology, coupled with an innovative, onsite printing machine, allows us to quickly and accurately prepare and measure your tooth, then sculpt and place your dental crown, all in our office. There’s no need for a messy mold, or for a temporary restoration while your crown is being crafted off-site.
Fix Your Tooth with a Same-Day Crown
The longer a broken tooth is left untreated, the worse it can get. With a same-day crown, you can leave our office with your fully restored tooth after just a single visit.
