Put a Cap On it With Same Day Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a restoration that may be recommended when a tooth is moderate to severely damaged. These restorations are designed to restore your smile to optimum health, function, and decay, and at our practice, Dr. Robert Berry can complete your dental restoration treatment in just one day with same day dental crowns.

Same day dental crowns are the perfect solution for anyone who wants their dental work done quickly without sacrificing quality. We offer this service because we know how important it is to have healthy teeth!

What are Dental Crowns For?

A dental crown is essentially a ‘cap’ that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and improve its appearance. This restorative service may be recommended when a tooth is moderate to severely damaged.

What Can Crowns Treat?

Stress fractures, dental decay, and dental trauma are just some of the reasons you may need a dental crown. When your tooth is so damaged that it requires more than just fillings or root canal therapy to be restored back to health, Dr. Robert Berry can restore your smile with this restorative treatment option. Our team uses dental crowns to treat teeth that have been cracked or broken, dental implants that have failed due to fracture, dental decay, and more.

Signs of Tooth Infection

It is important to treat dental infections immediately because they can cause tooth loss. If you notice any of the following symptoms, it may be time for a dental crown:

  • pain in your mouth or face
  • cold sores on your lips
  • bad breath
  • chronic ear aches
  • pain or sensitivity when eating hot or cold food
  • loose adult teeth
  • loose baby teeth
  • swollen, bleeding or tender gums

What is the Dental Crown Procedure?

The dental crown procedure involves removing a small amount of tooth material in order for your dentist to establish the proper shape and size for your dental restoration. The dental crown will have a bond to your tooth for maximum strength and durability, keeping the dental crown in place.

How Long Does it Take?

Depending on which dental restoration you are receiving at our practice (ex: dental implants), Dr. Robert Berry can complete this restorative treatment option in just one day with same day dental crowns! The dental crown procedure only involves dental lab technicians that are located right in our office. To complete this dental restoration, Dr. Robert Berry will use dental impressions to create your dental crown model before sending the mold out to a trusted local dental laboratory for manufacturing of your custom-fit dental crowns.

Caring for Dental Crowns

It is important to care for dental crowns just like you would your natural teeth. For the first two weeks following dental restoration, you should refrain from chewing on the treated tooth and drink only through a straw. After this time period has passed, brush your dental crown with fluoride toothpaste before flossing underneath it gently. It is important to brush your dental crowns gently because they are very thin. If you are unsure about how to brush dental crowns, ask Dr. Robert Berry or our dental hygienist for advice on proper dental care techniques.

Risks

As with any medical procedure, there are some things to be aware of with this procedure. Cleveland Clinic explains that there are few issues that could arise, including:

  • Discomfort or sensitivity: A newly crowned tooth may be sensitive immediately after the procedure as the anesthesia begins to wear off. If the crowned tooth still has a nerve in it, you may experience some heat and cold sensitivity.
  • Chipped crown: Crowns made of all porcelain can sometimes chip. We can repair small chips and the crown can remain in your mouth. The dental crown may need to be replaced if the chip is large or when there are many chips.
  • Loose crown: Sometimes, the cement that holds the crown on can wash out from under the crown. This can cause it to loosen and allow bacteria to leak in and cause decay to the tooth that remains. If your crown feels loose, make an appointment ASAP.
  • Allergic reaction: The metals used to make dental crowns are often a mixture of several metals. You can have an allergic reaction to the metal or porcelain that’s used in the dental crown. However, this is extremely rare.
