You Really Can Get A Dental Crown In One Day

If you’ve ever seen a car race in person or on television, you’ve seen a pit crew in action. With lightning speed, they are able to remove worn down tires and replace them with fresh ones so the driver can get the best performance possible from his or her vehicle. It’s remarkable to watch.

Now imagine that the driver needed two trips to complete that process. On the first stop, the pit crew would remove the old tires, and put on a set of spares. On the second stop, they would replace the spares with fresh tires.

For many dental patients who get dental crowns, their experience is more like the second scenario than the first one. What if we could make it more like the first? One stop and everything is replaced and ready to go.

At Beaumont Family Dentistry in Lexington, we are doing that with CEREC same-day dental crowns. We aren’t rushing through the process like a pit crew trying to help you win a race, but we are speeding up the process so you spend less time in our office and make fewer trips to get the same results.

You Want Your Problem Fixed

If you are in need of cosmetic or restorative dentistry, it’s because you have a problem with your teeth.

You may have a tooth that has become yellow or dark because of tooth decay. Even one tooth can dramatically change your smile. This can affect your confidence, and it may lead other people to think you are in a bad mood just because you don’t want anyone to see your teeth.

The same could be said for a tooth that has been chipped or broken. An accident or even an attempt to bite into something that was a little harder than you expected could make a bigger impact on your mouth than you anticipated.

Whether your tooth is yellow, has dark spots, or has become something of an abstract art piece, you know it doesn’t look right inside your mouth.

On the other hand, a tooth that has become weak may affect your biting and chewing ability. A tooth with an infection may be too sensitive to handle ice cream or a hot cup of coffee. A weakened tooth may hurt if your try to bite into a handful of nuts, candy, or even a stray unpopped kernel of popcorn.

Eating shouldn’t be painful. Ideally, it should be something you enjoy, or at the very least, something that allows you to continue with your day.

Do You Want Your Crowns Now Or Later?

Let’s consider your options. If you need a dental crown to fix your ugly, weak tooth, you want it as soon as possible.

At many dentist offices, you will go to the dentist who will examine your teeth. He or she will make an impression that will be used to create your dental crown. Then he or she will remove the decayed or discolored portions of your tooth.

Your tooth will be reshaped into an abutment, which is where your crown will be placed … when it’s ready. In the meantime, you’ll get a temporary crown — sort of like a spare tire — so you can get by until the real one is ready, which could be weeks from today.

When that dentist gets your crown back from the lab, then you will make a second trip to the office to have it bonded in place.

If you live in or near Lexington, you don’t have to wait weeks to get your dental crown. Instead, you can come to Beaumont Family Dentistry, where we have CEREC same-day dental crowns.

We’ll start by making a digital impression of your teeth. This will be sent to our in-office CEREC machine, which will begin making your dental crown.

We can reshape your tooth, but unlike at some other dentist offices, we can bond your real dental crown on your tooth before you leave.

You won’t have to go home. You won’t have to wait for a phone call to let you know your dental crown is ready. You won’t have to take more time off work to return to our office.

You can walk out with a dental crown that looks just like one of your natural teeth and restores your ability to eat without pain.
