A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and appearance. A crown may be necessary if your tooth is cracked or broken, has a large filling, or has extensive decay. Essentially, a crown becomes your tooth’s new outer surface.
Same-day crowns in Hampton, VA, are tooth-shaped caps that are placed over a tooth by a dentist in one visit. Traditional crowns usually require two visits and a temporary restoration for about two weeks, while the permanent crown is fabricated in a laboratory. With modern advancements in dentistry, we can now fabricate crowns in our office using high-quality materials that last for a long time. These custom-created Same-day crowns in Hampton, VA, will fit more precisely than traditional ones and are esthetically pleasing.
Our dentist will first prepare your tooth for treatment. This will involve removing the damaged portion of the enamel and filling it with a composite material. Then, he will take a digital impression and send it to our lab to have the crown fabricated.
With CEREC® technology, the Same-day crowns in Hampton, VA, are milled from a single block of ceramic. Because of this, there is no need to wear a temporary restoration while the tooth is restored with a permanent one. CEREC® technology is advanced enough to create restorations that look and feel like natural teeth. The same-day treatment is completed in just one visit and takes less than two hours. It is color-matched to the surrounding enamel, so it looks natural in your mouth. It is made on the premises using CAD/CAM software to ensure the accurate design and precise fit of the restoration. Like the other same-day options, it is completed in a single visit. This means you will walk out of your appointment with a restored smile the same day you visit the dentist.
