Same Day Crowns
Same day crowns allow you to get your smile back in just one appointment. Previously, a dental crown could take two or more dental visits to complete. This meant that you needed to schedule one appointment to have the tooth prepared and another appointment to have the crown placed. You also likely needed more than one anesthetic injection. Dr. Lozada, Lancaster same day crowns dentist, can eliminate the need for the second appointment, extra anesthetic, and discomfort, simplifying the procedure from start to finish.
Dental crowns are restorations that fit over the crown of the natural tooth. They are designed to be strong and durable, so as to protect the tooth from further damage. Same day crowns work like conventional crowns, but are able to be completed in a single appointment. This means that you will spend less time in the dental chair, have fewer appointments, less anesthetic, and eliminate the need of a temporary crown. Dr. Lozada, expert in same day crowns in Lancaster, uses high-quality dental porcelain to complete the restoration and ensure excellent aesthetics.
Same Day Crowns Lancaster
If you are a candidate for a conventional crown, you are likely also a candidate for a same day crown. Dr. Lozada, Lancaster same day crowns dentist, might recommend a same day crown if you have:
• A broken or cracked tooth
• A badly decayed tooth
• An infected tooth
• An abscessed tooth
• A severely damaged tooth
• A tooth that has undergone root canal therapy
Dr. Lozada, expert in same day crowns in Lancaster, prepares the tooth as usual. Then, he uses a special handheld infrared camera to take a virtual impression of the tooth, which is immediately downloaded to a special computer program that allows us to view and manipulate the images into a 3D virtual model. We design your new crown based on this model, and the in-office milling unit creates the same day crown out of a single block of porcelain. We check the crown for fit and appearance, and if everything is exactly right, we will bond it into place. The entire process can be completed in a single appointment, and when you leave our office, your new crown will be ready to use.
