Who Is a Good Candidate for Same-Day Crowns?

Same-day crowns are better suited to some than others. So it’s important to know if you are a good candidate for this procedure before deciding, and this will be determined based on your current oral condition. Here are some of the qualifications to be eligible for this treatment:

Enough healthy tooth structure remains to hold the crown in place

For the crown to bond securely, you need at least two millimetres of healthy tooth structure. This means one-quarter of the visible portion of your affected tooth must be present.

No signs of gum disease or decay are present

A same-day crown may not be suitable if your tooth is significantly decayed or infected. It's because the crown must be securely bonded to a healthy tooth to remain secured.

You don't have a habit of grinding your teeth

Bruxism (teeth grinding) can damage the crown and weaken its bond. If you are habitually grinding your teeth, your dentist may recommend a more durable material for the crown or a special mouthguard to protect it.

You don't have large gaps between your teeth

While same-day crowns can help address minor gaps, they are unsuitable for more severe cases because the crowns may be too bulky and can affect your bite.

Common Dental Problems That
Same-Day Crowns Can Address

Cracked, Chipped, or Broken Teeth

Cracked, chipped, or broken teeth are not only unsightly, but they can also be painful. A same-day crown can help address these conditions by covering and protecting the damaged tooth to avoid further damage.

Decayed Teeth

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

Because they are made of ceramic, they can be less durable and more prone to wear than traditional crowns that are made of porcelain or metal. So proper care plays a significant role in the lifespan of your same-day crowns. With the right maintenance, they can last up to 10 to 15 years or more.

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.

In general, these dental treatments are not painful because you will receive local anaesthesia to numb the area around your tooth. However, you may feel pressure while your tooth is being prepared for the crown. You may also experience mild pain or discomfort and sensitivity after the procedure, but this should go away within a few days.
While it may not be permanent, this type of dental restoration can last up to 10 to 15 years. It may even last longer if you take care of your oral health and regularly visit your dentist for professional cleanings and checkups.
This differs for every patient, depending on your location, your dentist, how complex your dental problem is, and how many teeth need to be covered. In general, same-day crowns can cost $900 to $1,300 per tooth. This is just an estimate, so it can go lower or higher. Also, if your private health fund has major dental extra covers, they may pay a portion of the total cost. Call your health fund provider to see if this treatment option is included in your insurance.
