Traditional dental crowns usually require two dental visits. The tooth is prepared at the first visit, and at the second visit, the crown is bonded to the tooth. This can be a time-intensive process, and patients have to undergo anesthetic injections at both visits, will need to wear a temporary crown and may still require further adjustments before they can get a comfortable crown. Our Thousand Oaks same day crowns expert offers an alternative.
We craft crowns right in our office and can prepare your tooth and fit and bond your crown in a single visit. If you are a candidate for a same day crown, our expert in same day crowns in Thousand Oaks will begin by planning your treatment process; dental X-rays may be taken. We will numb the tooth using a local anesthetic. When we prepare your tooth, we will need to remove some of the enamel to create room for the new crown. There will be no need for a temporary crown since we will create your new crown while you wait.
The crown is made by our skilled lab technician, so you can be confident that your restoration will be as strong and beautiful as you need it to be. We can add precise details that result in a crown that is indistinguishable from your own natural teeth. Once your crown is ready, our Thousand Oaks same day crowns expert can check the fit, make any necessary adjustments and bond it securely to your tooth. You will not need more anesthetic or have to go through any uncomfortable procedures, which can be necessary for patients having temporary crowns removed.
Dental crowns are excellent options for teeth that are severely damaged or decayed. When the structure of the tooth has been significantly compromised, the tooth often needs more than just a filling. The crown can hold pieces of a tooth together, secure a large filling into place, or strengthen and protect the tooth from further damage. Crowns can also have cosmetic purposes.
