Same Day Dental Crowns in Fayetteville, NC
Dental Crown Procedures
In many cases, we are able to make single appointment crowns in our office using advanced CAD/CAM technology. The system we currently use makes fabrication of a crown very accommodating, we simply scan your prepped tooth, fabricate you a crown and cement all in one visit. Occasionally, a digital impression or a cast is made of the existing tooth and an impression is made. These impressions are sent to a special lab, which manufactures your crown. In these cases, a temporary crown is applied until the permanent crown is ready. Within a week or two the temporary crown can be removed and the permanent crown will be cemented into place.
Caring For Your Crowns
With proper care, a good quality crown could last up to eight years or longer. It is very important to brush and floss in the area of the crown to avoid excess plaque or collection of debris around the restoration.
Certain behaviors such as jaw clenching or bruxism (teeth grinding) significantly shorten the life of a crown. Moreover, eating brittle foods, ice or hard candy can compromise the adhesion of the crown, or even damage the crown.
