Who Is a Good Candidate for Same-Day Crowns?
Common Dental Problems That
Same-Day Crowns Can Address
Tooth decay results from poor oral hygiene and a sugary diet. It weakens the tooth, which can lead to a cavity. A same-day crown in West Perth can address large cavities and prevent further decay.
Stained and Discoloured Teeth
Certain factors cause teeth to lose their lustre, such as drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes. Crowns can be matched to the colour of your natural teeth, giving you a bright and beautiful smile.
Severely Worn-Down Teeth
Worn-down teeth are often the result of bruxism and acid reflux. This can lead to pain and sensitivity. A same-day crown is used to cover the entire tooth and restore its function.

ABOUT Same-Day Crowns
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) uses 3D imaging, a same-day ceramic crown machine, and CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing) to create dental crowns in a single visit. At your appointment, your dentist will prepare the teeth to be covered with a crown. They will also remove parts of your enamel to make room for the crown. This may take 50 to 90 minutes. Once your tooth is prepared, your dentist will take a digital impression or 3D image of it using a camera. This will be used to create a digital model of your tooth.
Your dentist will then choose the appropriate colour for your tooth. The computer will design the crown based on the digital model selected and the shade. Your crown will be milled from a solid block of ceramic. After milling, the crown will be checked for fit and bonded to your tooth using dental cement on the same day at the dental clinic. Creating your crown may take about 60 to 90 minutes, which means that same-day crowns can help you achieve a more beautiful smile in 2 to 3 hours.
With same-day crowns, you don’t have to deal with temporary crowns. This means you don’t need to return for another dental appointment to have it fitted because it will be done in a single visit. This treatment is less invasive because it doesn’t require as much enamel to be removed. In addition, you can control the colour of your tooth since it will be milled from a solid block of ceramic. And in emergency dental situations, such as injuries at the workplace, this procedure can provide quick treatment. So, instead of a tooth extraction, a same-day crown can be used to save it by covering the entire tooth.
It could also be a good option if your root canal treatment resulted in a tooth infection. Your dentist will put dental fillings over the root canal to avoid affecting your neighbouring natural teeth before covering it with the crown.
