The Benefits Of Same Day Crowns
Did you know that getting regular Dental Crowns can take up 3 to 4 weeks to be completed? First, the process begins with prepping the tooth. Then, after preparing the tooth, we take the impression. Afterwards, we send the impressions to the lab for fabrication. Once the lab has finished fabricating the crown, they send it back to our dental office for the initial fitting. Please note, the lab can take anywhere from 1 to 2 weeks to finish and deliver the crown. If the crown doesn’t fit right, we will send it back to the lab. They will adjust the crown and send it back, which prolongs the treatment.
At San Marcos Dental Studio, we understand that numerous visits and 3-4 weeks of waiting can be difficult. Therefore, that’s why we work with CEREC – CAD/CAM to provide our patients with the opportunity to get Same Day Crowns. In our San Marcos office we are able to do everything in one day. This includes the tooth preparation, us taking the impression with our digital scanner, and us fabricating the crown in our office to be ready on the same day.
Most importantly, if you are in a hurry to have your teeth the way they were before, Same Day Crowns are great for you. This keeps you from waiting for over a month to have your smile back and lets you be your confident self after one visit. Call us now at (760) 471-9560 to book an appointment now!
