One Visit Crown
One Visit Crown
We offer one-visit crown repairs that allow you to get an appointment and come in for a quick repair without prior consultation.
What is a one visit crown?
A one visit crown is just what it sounds like, where a patient can make an appointment, have a consultation and get a crown installed in the same appointment. They need to be scheduled in advance but allow patients a quick solution to needing a crown installed. The appointment includes consultation, diagnosis, fitting, and installation all in a single visit and may take a couple of hours.
The tooth is cleaned and sized in preparation for the crown. The fitted tooth is pressed on manually and aligned with the surrounding teeth, and cured onto the tooth.
When would I need a one visit crown?
Some patients who are busy and struggle to get in multiple appointments might prefer the option to get a one crown visit. A crown is used when the tooth is diseased, decaying, or chipped and needs to be replaced to help make your smile complete and to restore your ability to chew, eat, and speak.
Is a one visit crown permanent?
One visit crowns are a permanent option, like traditional crowns. The process is faster, and you are able to move on in life with less time requirement than a traditional crown would take, which requires more appointments.
However, one crown visits are not an option for every patient, especially if the underlying tooth needs further care or treatment. It also might not be an option if you want to have a crown that is more durable and lasts longer. Same-day crowns are made from ceramic material, which is why they tend to wear down sooner. By comparison, traditional crowns are made from porcelain, which lasts longer.
