What you need to know about same day crowns

You need a crown, but you’re a busy person. You don’t have time to wait around, spending two or more appointments at the dentist, and dealing with a temporary crown while you wait for your new one. Now you don’t have to wait as long for your new crown, thanks to Crownsmodern dentistry and the skills of Dr. Timothy Wiley at Highland Dental in Richmond, Kentucky. He can introduce you to same day crowns, the state-of-the-art way to have new crowns in one appointment, made right in the office while you wait!

In the past, if you needed a crown, your tooth was prepared at the first appointment and then molds were taken of your teeth. The molds were sent to a dental laboratory where technicians made your crown. The crown was shipped back to the office, which could take two weeks or more. Then the crown would be cemented at a second appointment. The entire process could take quite a bit of time and meanwhile, you would have to wear a temporary crown. Not a great solution for busy people on the go!

Now, thanks to a computer assisted technology known as “CAD-CAM," your crown is designed and manufactured right in the office and placed immediately. That means in only one appointment you will have a new crown and a new smile! Dr. Wiley wants you to know your crown will fit perfectly the first time because CAD-CAM technology creates it to exact specifications. There is no guesswork.

Same day crowns are a convenient, modern way to restore your teeth. They are also a great long-term solution that will last for many years. The biggest advantage is that they look fantastic and very natural. Same day crowns are the perfect choice for busy, on-the-go people like you. Call Dr. Timothy Wiley at Highland Dental in Richmond, Kentucky today. He can help you discover the magic of same day crowns. Don’t wait, call today!
