A dental crown is a custom-made, tooth-shaped ‘cap’ that is placed over a tooth, either for protection or cosmetic enhancements. There are various grounds on why your dentist may propose a dental crown for your tooth such as:
- Strengthening weakened or cracked teeth
- Covering discoloured poorly shaped teeth, or;
- For protection of root-canal treated teeth.
Traditional Dental Crowns
Traditionally dental crowns require numerous visits to the dentist, involving taking an impression in the initial visit, and a two-week wait for the dental laboratory to create the final crown. In the meantime, you will have a temporary crown to protect the tooth but must wait for the second appointment to have complete peace of mind.
Same Day Crowns
Alternatively, you can consider the same day crowns Sydney locals have come to know and trust from Soothing Care Dental. Same day crowns are a more technical and advanced procedure. Suitability for same day crowns is determined on a case by case basis, it is not suitable for all patients. Our experienced dentists will take a digital impression of your affected teeth using a 3D scanner, design your crown on leading dental software and then mill your custom-made porcelain crown on an on-site computer aided manufacturing machine.
Once completed the dentist will then coat the new crown to match the appearance of your surrounding teeth. This will ensure that the crown will be unnoticeable.
