What is a dental crown?
A dental crown is a covering for an existing tooth that is decayed or broken and can improve the way it looks as well as make it stronger and longer lasting. The Crown procedure traditionally takes multiple appointments. It involves getting a temporary crown placed and waiting weeks until the dental laboratory has created the final restoration.
At our Nambour practice, you no longer have to wait weeks for your dental crowns! Our in-house technology fabricates durable, high-quality ceramic dental crowns that match your existing teeth for a seamless and fast result. So you can walk out of the clinic with a full smile makeover in just one visit!
Reasons for crowns:
- broken or fractured teeth
- cosmetic enhancement
- decayed teeth
- fractured fillings
- large fillings
- tooth has a root canal
How do same day crowns work?
Our state of the art technology digitally designs your crown before sending the information to our mill, where your custom restoration will be carved out of aesthetic ceramic on the spot.
Our dentists then provide the shading and colour, place the restoration, and you can leave the practice with a world-class restoration without the wait associated with dental laboratories.
Benefits of one day crowns:
- No more messy and uncomfortable impressions
- Eliminates the need for a temporary crown
- Procedure completed in only one appointment
- More precision – a 3D camera is used to get a precise scan of your teeth, meaning crowns will fit perfectly
