The traditional dental crown process takes two appointments. But a same-day crown from Bandy Dental only takes one visit to our office. During your appointment, our dentist in Holly, Michigan, will be able to determine if you’re a candidate for a same-day crown. He’ll then create a custom treatment plan tailored to your needs.
In the meantime, here are some situations that may require the use of a same-day crown.
Have you had more than one dental procedure for the same tooth? This can cause your tooth to become more fragile over time and prone to breakage. If this describes your situation, Dr. Bandy may recommend a same-day crown to restore the original strength of your tooth. This will help decrease your risk of the tooth chipping or cracking.
A root canal saves your tooth from needing to be extracted. But root canal therapy can also leave your tooth fragile, which is why Dr. Bandy will restore the tooth with a same-day crown.
Unlike other offices, we’re able to plan and place your new crown in one appointment. This means that the root canal procedure may only take one visit to our office instead of two. Not only is this more convenient for you, but it’s also less stressful and takes less time away from your busy schedule.
A dental implant is a prosthetic tooth root that’s made out of a titanium alloy. This titanium alloy is biocompatible and will fuse to your jawbone over time. Once the tooth implant has completely fused, it’ll be stable enough to support an abutment and crown.
The abutment is the connector piece between the implant and crown. The crown is what gives you the appearance and function of a natural tooth.
Do you have a cracked or chipped tooth? If so, it’s important that you schedule an appointment with our dentist as soon as possible. Depending on the severity of the damage, Dr. Bandy may recommend a porcelain veneer or a same-day dental crown.
A veneer is a wafer-thin porcelain shell that covers the front of your tooth, which is perfect for small chips and cracks. A same-day crown covers the entire tooth above the gumline, which is better for restoring teeth with structural damage.
Dr. Bandy may recommend a same-day dental crown if your tooth has a cavity that’s too big for a filling. Fillings are meant to treat teeth with small cavities. If the filling is too big, it threatens the structural integrity of the tooth.
For this reason, we’ll recommend a dental crown to restore a tooth with a deep cavity. A dental crown is designed to cover and restore a fragile tooth after we remove the decay.
