Needing dental work doesn’t have to be a hassle or a scary endeavour. Now, when you visit Northwest Dental Group, you can resolve some of your dental problems in a single day.

It’s called same-day crowns, and it’s a treatment that our patients love. At Northwest Dental Group, it’s possible to restore your teeth in one visit because of our CAD/CAM digital technology. It all starts with training. We work extensively to stay updated on the latest technology and technique. All of our treatments focus on convenience, accuracy, and comfort. Same-day crowns meet all of that criteria.

Here are 3 Major Benefits of Same-Day Crowns.

Same-Day Crowns Save You Time   

Dentists across the country place millions of crowns every year. It requires us to restore the tooth, but it’s not a rare treatment by any means. Most of us may need a crown in our lifetime, in fact. Our office wanted to make the treatment more convenient for our patients. We’re using special digital technology and a milling machine to design and place a permanent crown in one visit. The entire procedure will take only about 90 minutes, and you’ll only need to visit the office just once. Few dental offices in the area provide such a service, and so a basic crown placement can take you anywhere from two to three visits — over the span of a few weeks. Not here! You can get your crown completely finished during a long lunch break!

No More Temporary Crowns

We mentioned above that most dental offices need two or three visits to place a crown. The first visit is preserved for restoring the tooth and then taking an impression of the mouth. Then, your impression is sent off to a dental lab to craft your new crown. You’ll wear a temporary crown while your permanent crown is being fabricated. If you’ve had a temporary crown, you understand the hassle. The temporary crowns is often smaller than your permanent crown, and it’s not as lifelike as your crown or natural teeth. Even worse, these crowns have a tendency to dislodge. That’s definitely something you don’t want! We don’t need to send your impression off to a dental lab because we have a special milling station in our office.

Same-Day Crowns Look and Feel Great

One of the biggest benefits of same-day crowns is the way they look and feel. Because we’re using digital impressions, we get the crowns to fit perfectly. We’ll also make sure the crown matches the shade of your natural smile. You also won’t find any metal in our same-day crowns. These crowns are made from one chunk of ceramic material. We’ve found that solid crowns are durable and can last for years with proper oral care.
