Same Day Crowns Clearwater Florida
Whether you had a dental emergency and need a tooth replaced right away or your busy life makes multiple visits difficult, The Dentist Place of Clearwater offers Same Day Crowns to help make great care convenient! Our office utilizes amazing cutting edge technology to offer the same-day option for restoring your teeth to health with Same Day Crowns.
Same Day Crowns Clearwater are usually placed to strengthen an injured tooth. All dental professionals agree that when possible, it is advantageous to restore a natural tooth rather than replace it with a prosthetic alternative. Our crowns are precision-engineered to create a beautiful fit and restore full functionality to the injured tooth.
Why Might a Crown be Necessary?
All dental professionals agree that when possible, it is advantageous to restore a natural tooth rather than replace it with a prosthetic alternative. We often recommend crowns as a treatment option to restore the functionality of your own natural healthy tooth when less involved restorative alternatives such as fillings are no longer possible due to significant breakdown in the tooth structure.
Unlike the majority of the rest of the body, the teeth do not have extensive healing capabilities. Therefore, once the enamel (or surface) of the tooth is injured in some manner, it does not have the ability to heal itself.
When a tooth is injured due to trauma or caries (cavities), it is important to replace that lost tooth structure in the most durable fashion. Crowns give us the most durable option.
What is Involved in Getting a Same Day Crown?
In the past, and even today, many offices utilize unpleasant impression materials in the process of crown fabrication. This also required at least 2 to 3 visits before getting the final crown. At The Dentist Place of Clearwater, our technology allows us to bypass all those unpleasant impressions and multiple visits by utilizing a digital impression system and milling unit to make your crown the SAME DAY. No more temporary crowns popping off, or becoming sensitive. Just one visit where Dr. Rashid will numb you thoroughly, prepare the tooth by removing all compromised tooth structure, scanning your tooth right then and there, then using the cutting edge technology to design and fabricate your same day crown while you wait in the comfort of our warm and inviting office. Patients often choose to utilize our relaxation room and kick back in our amazing massage chair while they wait for their crown to be cemented.
Crowns have been used for many years in dentistry but often required the use of a metal layer underneath porcelain, or even an all gold restoration. With the demands of nicer and more natural looking restorations, porcelain and zirconia crowns have become some of the most commonly used restorations in dentistry today.
Our crowns have many advantages over the porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) or gold alternative, including:
- Closer color matching – Same Day crowns can be created in a color that will match your existing teeth much better than traditional crowns made with metal. This means the restoration is almost undetectable to others.
- No metal base – The partially ceramic traditional crowns do look somewhat natural on top, but an unsightly metal band often develops at base of the tooth with any type of gum recession. Our crowns completely eliminate metal, and thus, the unsightly dark appearance associated with it.
- Biocompatibility – Same Day crowns are much more friendly to your gums than traditional crown made with metal.
- Custom fitting – We utilize the highest rated scanner on the market, the Dentsply Sirona Primescan, to capture an extremely accurate picture of your tooth that is more accurate than traditional impression material. This leads to much better fitting and longer lasting restorations.
Our unique technology we offer at The Dentist Place of Clearwater provides you the convenience of a single visit to the Dentist Office. Most Dentist Offices in Clearwater need more than 2 visits and require you to wear temporary crowns that are prone to breaking or falling out. Another advantage of our Same Day Crowns is no longer having to use the dreaded ‘goopy impression material. Our State of the Art Digital Scanner is the best technology available to ensure an accurate fitting and a great looking restoration. While there are still applications that require the use of impression materials, our office does everything possible to avoid using them.
