The Same-Day Crown Treatment Process

Fit Inspection & Adjustments

Once your crown is ready and your tooth has been thoroughly cleaned and prepared, your dentist will carefully fit the crown into your mouth. We'll make any adjustments needed to guarantee a comfortable and precise fit.

Permanent Crown Placement

With the final tweaks made, your dentist will then securely attach your crown using a strong dental adhesive, effectively restoring both your smile and your bite functionality.

Frequently Asked Questions

Check out these frequently asked questions, or call us to speak with our team.

What issues can a same-day crown treat?

Typically, same-day crowns are used to shield and repair teeth that have suffered significant damage due to a severe cavity or have been cracked or broken due to dental trauma, such as an accident or injury. By covering and safeguarding the entire tooth structure, same-day crowns are ideal for preventing additional issues and restoring the shape, look, and functionality of impaired teeth.

Additionally, same-day crowns are often utilized to cover and protect teeth following root canal therapy. In less common scenarios, they might be used in cosmetic dentistry when alternatives like veneers and dental bonding aren't suitable.

How do I know if I need a same-day crown?

If your tooth is damaged, severely decayed, or if you require urgent dental attention, a same-day crown might be necessary. It's important to consult your dentist if you're dealing with tooth pain, discomfort, or if you notice visible damage or discoloration of your teeth. Based on the specific dental problem you're facing, your dentist can suggest a same-day crown or an alternative restorative treatment.

How long do same-day crowns last?

A well-made and properly placed same-day crown can last up to 15 years. It’s crucial to maintain good oral health habits to enhance your crown’s longevity. These practices include brushing twice per day, flossing once per day, and seeing your dentist every 6 months for a professional cleaning and exam.

How do I care for my same-day crown?

Your same-day crown can be cared for just as you would a natural tooth. Remember to brush thoroughly twice a day, each session lasting at least two minutes, covering every surface of each tooth. Daily flossing, ideally in the evening, is also crucial. This quick routine should include flossing along the tooth and under the gum line. Additionally, regular dental check-ups every six months are important to ensure the health of your dental work and overall oral health.

Are same-day dental crowns covered by insurance?

Insurance usually covers same-day dental crowns when they are needed for restorative reasons, like significant cavities or a broken tooth. The specific coverage amount will vary based on your policy's deductible and annual limits.

However, if you need a crown for cosmetic reasons, like concealing a discolored tooth, it might not be covered by insurance. We advise checking with your insurance provider to confirm coverage for your treatment.

Can I get same-day crowns on my front teeth?

Absolutely! A same-day crown effectively conceals any noticeable stains or chips on your tooth. This is particularly advantageous for front teeth that are more visible. Your dentist will ensure the crown matches the color of your surrounding teeth, seamlessly blending it with your smile.
