One Visit Crown
One Visit Crown
A one visit crown is a perfect solution for patients who need to have a crown installed but without the wait time and requirements for the traditional crown.
About One Visit Crowns
With the use of computer-aided design and machinery, professionals are now able to perform crowns in one appointment. A one visit crown requires a three-step process that can be done in a single appointment.
First, the dentist takes a digital impression of your teeth and gums using a digital device, the Cerec. Second, they use the scans to help design the restoration of the tooth, by forming the crown. Third, that crown design is manufacturing using 3D printing technology, which is then professionally installed over your tooth by the dentist.
The appointment may take just a couple hours, without the need for a pre-visit or prior consultation appointment.
One Visit Crowns v. Traditional Crowns
One-visit crowns are a quicker and easier solution for patients who need to have a damaged, decayed, or diseased tooth repaired. The one visit crown is a permanent solution, like the traditional crown. They are both made to look like the surrounding teeth. They both create a cap to protect the remaining fragment of the tooth.
Since the same-day crowns are made from ceramic materials, they may wear down faster than porcelain crowns.
Can I Get a One Visit Crown?
Most patients are candidates for a one-visit crown. However, if a patient has an allergy to certain materials that the 3D printer uses to make to one visit crown, then a more traditional crown might be needed. Similarly, if there are further issues with the tooth, like decay or disease, that needs to be addressed, then a traditional crown might be needed. Consult with our dentists to find out more about whether you are a candidate for a one visit crown.
