Same-Day Crowns

If you have a tooth that's broken or has a cavity, or if an old filling or crown isn't working well anymore, you might want to consider getting a same-day crown. This means your dentist can make a new ceramic tootxh cover for you in just one visit. A dental crown is like a cap that goes over a tooth to fix it up and protect it. It makes the tooth look and work better. Crowns can be made of different materials like ceramic, metal, porcelain, or resin.

What's a Same-Day Crown?

So, how does it happen? Here are the steps you'll probably go through to get this special dental crown:

Your dentist will prepare your tooth for the crown. They'll remove some enamel and any decayed parts to make room for the crown. You'll likely get a shot of local anesthesia to make sure you're comfortable and don't feel much pain.

Take pictures of your tooth. Instead of using messy, gooey materials for impressions, your dentist will take digital images.

The machine gets to work. With new technology, we can make your dental crown right there in the dentist's office, usually in 40 minutes or less.

WHAT IS THE FASTMILL.IO™ IN-OFFICE MILL?

The fastmill.io™ In-Office Mill is the only chairside milling unit capable of producing BruxZir NOW crowns. BruxZir crown will be milled and ready for delivery in under 40 minutes.

A key benefit to using a lab-quality milling machine is that doctors can mill BruxZir NOW — the pre-sintered zirconia block that can be milled and delivered with no oven time, firing or glazing required — right in their office. It is literally as simple as milling, polishing, cementing and moving on.

Advantages of Same-Day Crowns

Time and Ease

With the regular process, you have to go to the dentist twice and wait for weeks. First, the dentist takes an impression of your tooth during a consultation. Then, a dental lab makes a crown to fit your tooth. This can take days. But with a same-day crown, the dentist uses special technology right in the office to make your crown quickly. So, you don’t have to wait long for your new tooth.


Material & Strength

BruxZir Zirconia is the No. 1 prescribed restorative material, cited as one of the most important developments in modern dentistry by Dr. Gordon Christensen. It is proven to be an ideal material for single-unit restorations in the posterior, and now with the advent of BruxZir Esthetic, it is rapidly replacing IPS e.max® crowns as the go-to selection for anterior cases. Same-day crowns are typically made from high-quality, tooth-colored Zirconia or ceramic, making them strong, long-lasting, and natural-looking.


Temporary Crowns

With regular crowns, you get temporary ones while you wait for the permanent one to be made. But with same-day crowns, you skip this step because you get your permanent crown right away.


Pros and Cons of Same-Day Crowns

Like any procedure, there are good and not-so-good things about getting a same-day crown. It just depends on what you need.
