Do you have a damaged or unattractive tooth? You can restore its health, function, and appearance using one of the latest advancements in dentistry. Same-day crowns in Reno give you a natural-looking restoration in just one day. There’s no need for a second appointment or a temporary crown. From start-to-finish, we can improve your smile in just one visit.
A dental crown is a custom-made cap that covers the entire surface of a tooth down to the gum line. It’s one of the most versatile treatments in restorative dentistry because it can fix several issues, like a significant break. It can also be used along with other procedures, like a bridge or root canal, to rebuild a healthy, functional smile.
Nowadays, crowns are typically made of all ceramic material, which gives them a natural appearance. This allows them to offer cosmetic benefits as well, like covering dark tooth discoloration.
Typically, it takes 2 appointments to get a crown. After your tooth is prepared, your dentist in Reno takes an impression of your mouth to allow the dental lab to craft your restoration to meet your needs. This can take a couple of weeks, so you’ll need a temporary one in the meantime.
Same-day crowns streamline the process without compromising the quality or aesthetics of your restoration. A digital impression system works with elite technology to make it right in our office. In about 1 hour, you’ll walk out with the flawless crown you need to enhance your smile.
The combination of advanced technology and the materials used allow same-day crowns to offer a variety of benefits over traditional restorations, such as:
The process of getting a crown differs from the traditional method. After your initial consultation, we’ll schedule you for your appointment. Your tooth is prepared by removing any decay or damage. It’s also reshaped before a digital impression is taken. We’ll have the information we need in a matter of seconds, so you won’t need to hold a messy, foul-tasting material in your mouth.
The image is sent to our CAD/CAM software. This allows us to customize your crown to meet your exact specifications to replicate your tooth. The information is sent to our in-office milling machine, where it’s cut from a single block of all-ceramic material.
In less than 1 hour, your restoration is ready to be bonded to your tooth. You won’t need a temporary crown or to come back for a second appointment. This saves time and money for an investment in your smile.
