You likely want to keep your teeth in good condition. After all, they're among the first things people notice. Unfortunately, your teeth can become worn down and damaged over time due to cavities or trauma. If this is the case, your dentist must remove a part of the damaged tooth. You will likely need a crown to protect and strengthen the remaining tooth structure.
Crowns act as a cap for your tooth, helping to provide support and keeping it from further damage or decay. Crowns protect what remains of your tooth structure and provide extra strength and stability so you can carry on with your everyday life without worrying about breakage or chipping. Dr. Sarah Myers specializes in same-day crowns, so you can return to smiling confidently in no time!
Same-day crowns can be fitted within one to two hours.

You don’t need temporary crowns before fitting same-day crowns, so you don't have to deal with the potential discomfort or extra visits typically associated with traditional crowns.
The whole process is digital for a fast and accurate treatment that takes just minutes. This means your dentist will not use messy impressions to create your same-day crown.
You will receive your permanent crown on the same day, so no waiting or multiple visits are needed.
Dr. Sarah Myers will evaluate your mouth and prioritize treatment if necessary. She will then prepare your tooth for the crown by removing any decay or damage to the enamel, cleaning it, and reshaping it. Sedation may be provided if you would like or if your dentist thinks it’s necessary.
Your dentist will take digital impressions of your teeth. This helps her create a precise model of your mouth to make sure the crown fits appropriately.
Once the digital impression is complete, our advanced system mills your new crown in-office while you wait. This may take 1-2 hours.
Dr. Sarah Myers will inspect and adjust the crown for a comfortable fit before bonding it securely with dental cement.

Dental crowns that are placed as a part of restorative treatment are usually covered by most insurance policies. The exact amount of coverage, and how much you will have to pay, will vary based on your unique plan. Cosmetic crowns, however, may not be covered by insurance. Check with your insurance to find out if dental crowns are covered under your policy.
You may benefit from a crown if your teeth are damaged or severely decayed. If your teeth are causing you pain, discomfort, or are visibly damaged or discolored, don’t wait to schedule a consultation with your dentist, so you can find out if dental crowns can alleviate your oral health issues.
To care for your dental crown, all you need to do is treat it like you would your natural teeth. Be sure to brush at least twice a day for at least two minutes and floss at least once, preferably at night. In addition to visiting your dentist every six months for regular visits, avoid snacking on overly hard or sticky foods to help extend the lifespan of your dental crown.
Dental crowns can last as long as 15 years when they are made and placed properly. Keeping up with good oral health habits, like brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing at least once a day, as well as seeing your dentist every 6 months for regular cleanings and checkups can also enhance your crown’s longevity. Same-day crowns aren’t quite as durable, but they can still last for many years with the proper care.
Dental crowns can be used to treat teeth that have suffered damage and decay. Other candidates that could benefit from a dental crown include patients who have serious cavities, as well as those who have experienced dental trauma resulting in cracked, chipped, or broken teeth. Patients who have undergone root canal therapy will often require a crown to finish the procedure, as crowns cap the entire tooth all the way down to the gumline in order to protect it from future issues. In addition, because crowns can restore the shape and appearance of teeth in addition to restoring their functionality, they can be used for certain cosmetic cases where other services like veneers or dental bonding are not viable options.
