Halloween may be coming up soon, but this is no trick! No need to make multiple visits to the dentist for a crown. Fulp Family Dentistry offers same day dental crowns! If you need a new dental crown but are short on time, this is the news you’ve waited to hear. With our new in-house crown machine, we capture a 3D model of your teeth and gums for a no-mess impression that is more accurate than the putty-based impressions. Then, our awesome equipment goes to work, creating a great-looking crown with a superior fit – all while you’re in the chair.
Purpose of Dental Crowns:
Even with the best oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist, at some point in your life you may need a crown, especially if a tooth has been damaged due to a fracture. In other cases, teeth may be damaged due to decay or existing dental work has simply started to wear out.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth to cover it while restoring its shape, size, and strength – and, to improve its appearance.
The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. This process used to take multiple visits, but with our new rock-star dental equipment, you can have a new crown custom created while you wait. Even better, the 3D impression means the mess of impressions is a distant memory – with our new process, there’s no goop and no gag. Fulp Family Dentistry is proud to offer same day dental crowns to our patients for their comfort and convenience!
