If you have ever had a crown in years past you would know that is was a rather tedious process. You would need to come in for multiple appointments to be measured and fitted which is never ideal for busy schedules. But now, due to advancements in dental technology crowns can now be done in the one appointment.
With the introduction of CEREC technology, we can take highly accurate 3D images of your tooth and have the CEREC machine create your new crown in minutes. No more waiting weeks to restore your smile or having multiple injections, just one appointment.
Same day crowns provide greater precision and convenience with one appointment, one injection and no messy moulds or temporary crowns. Because they are set in the one appointment, there is no need to have soft food, after your appointment you can resume your normal eating habits.
Same day crowns are the same cost as regular crowns, provided there are no further complications with your teeth. During your dental check up, your dentist will be able to inform you of costs and answer any questions you may have. We will also provide you with the information you need to check what coverage you may have with your health fund.
You look after your crown in the same way you do your natural teeth, with regular brushing and flossing. We do recommend, however, that when flossing instead of lifting the floss up once complete, slide the floss through the teeth, this is particularly important when the crown is new.
