Traditional crowns have in the past been a viable way of replacing a badly damaged tooth. They did come with their drawbacks, though. For example, this treatment requires a temporary crown to proceed first, and then it needs to come off so the permanent crown can continue. Instead of worrying about temporary crowns, ask Dr. Wehrman about the advantages of dental crowns on the same day.
- Patient Does Not Have To Worry About Damaging the Temporary Crown
A temporary crown is needed because it takes time for the cosmetic dentist to build the permanent one. The temporary crown is not as robust, however, and there are some things that you will need to avoid during this period. Such foodstuffs include:
- Excessively cold foods
- Sticky substances
- Crunchy vegetables
Since you can get your permanent crown on the same day, there’s no need to worry about changing your diet drastically. Shortly after the procedure, you’ll be able to return to your regular diet.
- Patient Spends Less Time at the Dentist’s Office
All patients have certain responsibilities, from work to school. This can make it inconvenient if they have to schedule several appointments over the course of a couple of months at a dental office. Fortunately, you only need to schedule one appointment with dental crowns that same day. Whenever it is most convenient for you, you should plan an appointment, because the total care period has been cut in half.
- Patient Enjoys Same Durability
Some patients fear crowns of the same day will not be as resilient as those which take longer. They can rest easy in the knowledge that they are made with the same materials and technology of first class. When it comes to these new and improved crowns there are no compromises.
