We are now witnessing the future of dentistry through one-day dental crowns in Orlando. When you incur a chip or a break in your tooth, typically, your dentist will suggest a dental crown to fix it. A dental crown is the gold standard treatment for breaks, chips, and cracks. You have two options – lab-created crowns (traditional), and same-day crowns.
The latter is more appealing, but most people are more confident with what they’ve always been used to. It’s essential to know their differences before you decide.
A same-day dental crown, also called a single visit crown, utilizes modern CEREC® technology or Chairside Economical Restoration for Esthetic Ceramics. The CEREC® system customizes the dental crown so that it fits the affected tooth.
As the name suggests, the crown is made in the dental office and can be worn on the same day. Despite the quick and straightforward process, the crowns are incredibly strong and durable and look natural. You can’t tell them apart from your natural teeth.
Lab-made crowns are traditional dental crowns that are created in the laboratory. They can be made from metals, gold alloys, and porcelain-fused-to-metal.
Same-day crowns are made in the dental office, while traditional crowns are made off-site. The time it takes to make the crowns varies significantly between the two. Same-day crowns are completed in a couple of hours, while traditional crowns take several weeks to complete. While waiting, you are given a temporary crown.
As for appearance, metal crowns can look obvious because of their bold color. Meanwhile, CAD/CAM made crowns look natural because the color of the crown is made to match nearby teeth.
