Why Same-Day Dental Crowns Are Popular

Dental Crowns

No one wants a damaged or flawed tooth disrupting their smile, but many of us keep the tooth for fear of extraction.

The good news is that a damaged tooth does not always have to be extracted. And an unsightly tooth does not have to hinder an otherwise great smile.

Same-Day dental crowns in Van Nuys, CA promote healthy teeth and a beautiful smile, which makes these restorations versatile and popular.

There are situations when our top dentists at the Dental Care Center recommend dental crowns, but so often our patients simply ask for them.

The Versatile Dental Crown

If you have a severely damaged tooth or a root canal, a dental crown can often save that tooth and keep it strong and viable. You won’t have to avoid eating “on that side” to prevent breakage, which saves wear on other teeth.

A dental crown also covers several tooth flaws including:

  • Small chips
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Small cracks
  • Discoloration
  • Odd or short-shaped teeth

Imagine a restoration that both enhances your smile and also promotes positive oral health.

How a Dental Crown Works

A dental crown is a tooth-colored cap that goes on over an existing tooth.

The process begins with an oral exam by one of our top Van Nuys cosmetic dentists. If you’re found to be a good candidate for a dental crown, one of our dentists will prepare your tooth for crown placement. Often you can have your dental crown the same day!

Following placement, one of our dentists provides aftercare instructions to help you make the most of your new crown. These instructions will include any follow-up appointments, too.

When you have dental crowns, you should still brush and floss at least twice per day and schedule regular dental exams and cleanings.
