Same-Day Crowns, Inlays, or Onlays

What are Same Day Crowns? 
Same Day Crowns are porcelain crowns that we craft here on site in a single visit. These dental crowns are versatile and practical dental restorations that restore damaged or weakened teeth, providing strength and improving aesthetics. These custom-made caps are placed over the entire visible portion of the tooth, restoring its shape, size, and function. Dental crowns play a crucial role in preserving damaged teeth, improving oral health, and enhancing the overall appearance of your smile. Because we utilize state-of-the-art, single-visit dentistry technology, we offer same-day crowns, which makes your journey to a restored smile, optimal oral health, and perfect dental function easier than ever. 
The Benefits of Porcelain Crowns
The benefits of porcelain crowns fall into three main categories: the strengthening of damaged teeth, the improvement of tooth function, and the enhancement of aesthetics.
Porcelain Crowns Strengthen Damaged Teeth 
Dental crowns provide an optimal solution for rehabilitating teeth afflicted by severe decay, fractures, or weakness. By encasing the entire visible portion of the tooth, crowns offer crucial protection and reinforcement, effectively thwarting additional damage and potential tooth loss.
Porcelain Crowns Improve Function 
Dental crowns effectively restore the shape, size, and alignment of damaged teeth, which facilitates easy chewing, biting, and speaking. With the enhanced strength and stability provided by a dental crown, you can once again enjoy normal activities without discomfort or restrictions.
Porcelain Crowns Enhance Aesthetics 
Dental crowns go beyond mere functional improvement; they also elevate the aesthetic appeal of your smile. Capable of correcting misshapen or deeply discolored teeth, crowns work wonders in transforming your smile and boosting your self-assurance and confidence.
The Process of Same-Day Crowns
Same Day Crowns have revolutionized the field of dentistry by providing an innovative solution that eliminates the need for multiple appointments, temporary restorations, and messy impressions or powders. The result is a vastly improved restorative process. This process begins with an initial consultation, during which Dr. Dollar conducts a comprehensive examination to assess the patient's oral health thoroughly. Subsequently, advanced technology is utilized to obtain a digital impression of the prepared tooth or teeth. This precise scan meticulously captures every intricate detail required to fabricate a single crown or a set of crowns that fit perfectly. The digital image is then transmitted to an onsite milling machine, which carefully crafts the crowns from a solid block of ceramic material to perfectly fit your ideal smile.
During the waiting period for crowns to be milled, Dr. Dollar will prepare your tooth structures for the crown, after which you can relax comfortably without the need for temporary restorations or scheduling multiple appointments. Once the crown is ready, Dr. Dollar will meticulously verify its fit and aesthetics before securely bonding it with specialized adhesives and curing lights that ensure durability and longevity. 
What are Inlays and Onlays? 
Inlays and onlays are like crowns but are smaller and used when a tooth-colored filling will not be strong enough but there is enough tooth structure remaining that a crown is not needed.  Inlays and onlays are generally stronger and longer lasting than tooth-colored composite restorations.  The process is the same as for a crown.
What should I do next? 
Whether you need inlays, onlays, a single crown, multiple same-day crowns, or none of the above, your experience here at Dr. Zack Dollar DMD will be a hassle-free experience, with excellent functional and cosmetic results. As our hundreds of 5-star Google reviews show, our patients, whether from Talladega, Lincoln, Oxford, Sylacauga, Pell City, AL, or beyond, consistently leave happy and confident because of their restored smiles.
