What Is a One-Visit Crown?

What is a dental crown? Dental crowns are cap-like structures that are placed over a tooth due either to restore its appearance or to restore its strength. 

You can contact our team of experts at Streamside Dental in Vail, Colorado, to learn more about this topic or simply read on to know everything you need to know about one-visit crowns.

When Do You Need a Dental Crown?

Your dentist may recommend placing a dental crown in the following circumstances:

  • To protect a tooth from decay or breaking
  • To hold together parts of a tooth 
  • To restore an already broken tooth
  • To hold a dental bridge in place
  • To restore the tooth’s appearance if it is discolored or misshapen 
  • For cosmetic reasons

Types of Dental Crowns

Every crown is custom-made depending on the tooth. Traditionally, the dentist first assesses your teeth and then takes an impression of them. The dental lab receives the impression and the crown is manufactured and fitted.

However, with advancements in technology, one-visit crowns have become a popular option for patients who are constantly on the go. As the name suggests, these crowns can be manufactured and placed in just one dental visit, saving you precious time.

Advantages of Opting for a One-Visit Crown

Takes Only 2 Hours to Place

Traditional dental crowns require multiple dental visits to be manufactured and placed and the procedure is, thus, lengthier. However, your dentist can place a one-visit crown and restore your tooth in just a single appointment.

Wide Range of Uses

One-visit crowns can be used for a wide range of procedures in both restorative and cosmetic dentistry, either to help protect the teeth or to restore their appearance. 

Increased Comfort

As the procedure does not require multiple patient visits and can be done in a single sitting without the need for messy putty impressions, it greatly increases patient comfort. 

Cutting-Edge 3D Technology

The latest state-of-the-art 3D technology helps your dentist visualize the crown placement making sure it fits perfectly.

Made of Durable Porcelain

The human teeth are subjected to daily wear and tear and durable porcelain is designed in such a way that it can withstand it to a large extent.
