Same Day Crowns (Caps)

Goldenberg Dentistry is proud to offer same day crowns! A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size.  A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.

Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain and zirconia (tooth colored crown) are the most popular.  They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced.  Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.

Reasons for crowns:

  • Broken or fractured teeth.
  • Cosmetic enhancement.
  • Decayed teeth.
  • Fractured fillings.
  • Large fillings.
  • Tooth has a root canal.

What does getting a crown involve?

For most cases a single dental crown can be prepared, fabricated and cemented in one visit. This is great for patients to avoid needing a temporary crown for two weeks and negating the need for a second dental visit to cement the crown. After the tooth is prepared a digital impression will be made with one of our two intraoral scanners. The crown takes about 35 minutes to be milled and then is ready to be cemented.

Some cases require a more traditional approach requiring two appointments.  Your first appointment will include taking taking a digital impression with one of our two intraoral scanners or several highly accurate molds (or impressions). That  information will be used to create your custom crown.  If a second visit is needed, a mold will also be used to create a temporary crown which will stay on your tooth for approximately two weeks until your new crown is fabricated by a dental laboratory.

While the tooth is numb, the dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and shaping the surface to properly fit the crown.  Once these details are accomplished, your temporary crown will be placed with temporary cement and your bite will be checked to ensure you are biting properly.

At your second appointment your temporary crown will be removed, the tooth will be cleaned, and your new crown will be carefully placed to ensure the spacing and bite are accurate.

You will be given care instructions and encouraged to have regular dental visits to check your new crown.
