Dental crowns are one of the oldest forms of restorative dentistry, and with today’s advanced materials, they continue to provide life-changing benefits for patients who need to restore damaged teeth. Crowns, which are often called caps, are placed completely over teeth that have been cracked, fractured, or broken, or that have received a large filling or root canal therapy. At Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry of Kansas City, we offer a choice of restorations to fit your specific needs and preferences, including same-day crowns that can be crafted and secured in place all in just one day.
Choosing the Right Dental Crown
The point of a dental crown is to cover a compromised tooth to protect it from pressure that could damage it further. While tooth structure doesn’t heal the way skin or other body tissues do, a dental crown can stop the tooth from growing worse and requiring extraction, allowing you to retain your healthy tooth structure. To choose the right crown, your dentist will carefully examine the damage to the tooth and its location along your dental ridge, then consult with you to determine which option is best. If you qualify, then your dentist may suggest a same-day crown. Using advanced digital imaging and 3D printing technology, we can prepare your tooth, measure it, and then create and place your dental crown during a single visit to our office.
