How Practical are One-Day Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are a type of restorative dental treatment that can address the problem of teeth that are broken, have decay, or are otherwise not sound and healthy. Not only can a dental crown potentially save a problem tooth, but having one placed in the mouth can be done in as little as one day. So, if you have a damaged tooth, a dental crown may be the right approach to resolving your issue. Since you can have the procedure done in one day, you will not have to wait long or have to sacrifice much of your valuable time with multiple dental appointments.

At McBride Dental, the San Marcos restoration dentist can help you fix your smile with one-day dental crowns. To receive more information on if one-day dental crowns are appropriate for your dental needs, you can call McBride Dental today.

Reliability and One-Day Dental Crowns

How Practical are One-Day Dental CrownsThe time-saving patients get when they have a one-day dental crown appointment is one of many advantages of this type of procedure. On the other hand, considering that it only takes one appointment for a fully custom crown to repair one’s teeth it is not uncommon for patients to wonder about how reliable these tooth coverings actually are. 

Prospective patients will be happy to know that same-day crowns are incredibly stable and functional. Dental technology has come a long way which is why there may be some doubts about a procedure that at one time, took many weeks for a patient to have their teeth repaired. And, for a period of time, until a permanent crown was made for a patient, they had to wear a temporary one. While a temporary crown is a short-term solution until the permanent cap is made, patients sometimes experienced discomfort while they waited due to issues with the fit of the temporary crown.

At McBride Dental, a patient can come in and have a custom-made crown that is precisely fitted to a problem tooth in just one day. There is no more waiting or the need for having to deal with arduous temporary teeth coverings. The covering that will be made for you in the office will fit over your entire natural tooth from the gum line and up. This helps not only strengthen your tooth but will also be an aesthetic addition to your mouth because it will blend in with other teeth.

There are several dental issues that can be resolved with a dental crown including fixing a tooth that is so severely decayed a filing will not work. Dental crowns can even out a smile and make it attractive again, add strength to teeth that are broken, be a supportive structure for larger fillings where much of one’s natural tooth is missing, fix misshapen teeth, and much more.
