The traditional approach to dental crowns takes at least two, and maybe multiple, appointments to create and fit properly. The procedure for traditional crowns includes impressions that are messy and uncomfortable. While the crown is being created, you have to wear an uncomfortable temporary crown that sometimes comes off at inconvenient times. That is why same day crowns at Lucie Dental are such a game-changer. No more messy impressions and no more temporary crowns. Same day crowns let you get back to your life right away.

Strengthens Your Tooth
Same day crowns are virtually the same as traditional crowns, only they are milled on-site while you wait instead of being sent off for manufacture. For teeth that are missing a large part of the surface area from either damage, decay, or old metal fillings, crowns are an essential way to strengthen your tooth and protect it against fracturing. A crown is like a dental cap that fits over the damaged tooth. Crowns are placed to improve the look and strength of a tooth or implant and to halt deterioration. Same day crowns prevent the need for long waits for traditional crowns.
Same day crowns are an amazing innovation. Within approximately two hours, your tooth can be restored and begin functioning again. You won’t have to wait several weeks for your crown to come in. Same day crowns are also more comfortable and functional than traditional crowns because of the scanning device used to measure the crown. In addition, same day crowns are easier to fit and more cosmetically natural looking.
With Same day crowns Port St. Lucie patients can effectively address the following dental issues:
Our dental professionals will discuss your dental and overall health with you to determine if you will benefit from same day crowns. We will also examine your teeth and mouth to ascertain whether you have any gum disease that would preclude you from having same day crowns.
During your same day crown procedure, our dental professionals will make a 3D image of your damaged tooth using an intraoral camera and computer-aided design. Then, using a model of your crown, we will create your same-day crown. Once that is completed, we will fit the same-day crown and attach it to the damaged tooth. The whole process takes 90 minutes to two hours to complete.
It Fits Better!
Custom-milled at our practice in Port St. Lucie same day crowns can last for more than ten years if maintained properly. Same-day crowns help restore your smile effectively and affordably. Same day crowns are made from durable dental porcelain that, thanks to the CAD/CAM technology, creates a comfortable and accurate fit. They are just as durable and effective as traditional crowns.
The anesthesia which numbs your mouth will wear off after one or two hours, so be careful not to bite your lips or cheeks during that time so as not to cause damage to your mouth. After your same day crown procedure, you can resume your regular diet after approximately 30 to 45 minutes.
You should avoid extremely hot and extremely cold beverages until the pain and sensitivity alleviate. You should also avoid sticky or crunchy food until the crown has fully bonded, probably 24 to 48 hours. There may be some sensitivity and soreness in the area around the crown for several hours or days. Over-the-counter medications can help alleviate this pain. If the discomfort persists, contact our office, and we may need to see you for a minor adjustment.
Yes, same day crowns are made of ceramic and are even safer and more effective than porcelain crowns. Zirconia crowns are stronger and last longer than porcelain crowns.
In most cases, computer-aided design, same day crowns fit better than traditional crowns you have to wait on. The messy and uncomfortable impressions often don’t give a proper fit, while the intraoral camera and computer-aided design provide an excellent fit.
