No More Waiting: Ditch the Temporary Crown with JCL Dental's Same-Day Restorations

May 14, 2024

Dental crowns are like protective caps that encase a damaged or decayed tooth, restoring its strength, function, and appearance. Traditionally, getting a crown meant enduring multiple appointments, temporary crowns, and a waiting period for the final restoration. However, with advancements in dental technology, JCL Dental is revolutionizing this process with Same Day Restorations, allowing patients to skip the wait and enjoy immediate results.

Understanding Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are essential for treating severely damaged, decayed, or weakened teeth. These crowns cover the entire visible portion of the tooth above the gumline, providing support and protection. Traditionally, crowns were fabricated using materials like metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, or ceramic, requiring multiple appointments for preparation, fabrication, and placement.

General Benefits of Dental Crowns

Regardless of the method used, dental crowns offer numerous benefits. They restore the function and appearance of damaged or decayed teeth, allowing patients to chew, speak, and smile with confidence. Crowns also strengthen weakened teeth, reducing the risk of further damage or fracture. Additionally, they improve bite alignment and distribution of forces across the mouth, promoting overall oral health and longevity.

Traditional Crown Procedure

The traditional crown procedure involves several steps that include:  

Initial Consultation and Examination

The process begins with an initial consultation, during which the dentist examines the tooth in question. This examination helps assess the extent of damage or decay and determines whether a crown is the appropriate treatment option.

Tooth Preparation

Once the decision to proceed with a crown is made, the dentist begins preparing the tooth. This involves removing any decayed or damaged portions of the tooth and reshaping it to create space for the crown. This step is crucial to ensure the crown fits securely and aligns appropriately with neighboring teeth.

Impressions and Temporary Crown Placement

After tooth preparation, impressions of the prepared tooth and surrounding teeth are taken. These impressions serve as a mold for fabricating the permanent crown. While the permanent crown is being custom-made in a dental laboratory, a temporary crown is placed over the prepared tooth to protect it and maintain aesthetics and function.

Waiting Period for Crown Fabrication

Once impressions are taken, they are sent to a dental laboratory, where skilled technicians fabricate the permanent crown. This process typically takes several days to weeks, depending on the laboratory's workload and the case's complexity. During this waiting period, patients may have to manage with the temporary crown, which may not offer the same durability or fit as the permanent crown.

Final Crown Placement Appointment

Once the permanent crown is ready, patients return to the dental office for its placement. The temporary crown is removed, and the permanent crown is checked for fit, color, and bite alignment. Any necessary adjustments are made before the crown is permanently cemented into place.

Disadvantages of the Traditional Crown Procedure

Traditional crown procedures have many disadvantages, including:

  • They require multiple appointments over several weeks.
  • The waiting period for crown fabrication adds to the treatment duration.
  • Temporary crowns may not fit securely, causing discomfort or sensitivity.
  • Potential for temporary crown dislodgement, requiring additional visits for adjustments.
  • Reliance on external dental laboratories for crown fabrication.
  • Uncertainty regarding turnaround time and quality of the final restoration.
  • Disruption to daily life due to the need for multiple dental visits.
  • Wearing a temporary crown can be inconvenient and may affect aesthetics and function.

But you don’t have to endure these disadvantages; you can contact us for a same-day crown procedure. 

Modern Same-Day Crown Procedure

JCL Dental's Same Day Restorations utilize cutting-edge CAD/CAM technology to streamline the crown procedure. Instead of messy impressions, digital scans of the tooth are taken and used to design the crown right in the office. The crown is then milled from a block of high-quality ceramic material, allowing immediate placement. Patients can walk out with their permanent crown in one visit, skipping the inconvenience of temporary crowns and multiple appointments.

Advantages of Same-Day Crowns 

Same-day crowns offer numerous benefits over traditional crowns. Firstly, they save time by eliminating the need for multiple appointments and temporary crowns. Patients can have their crown placed in just one visit, minimizing disruption to their daily lives. Additionally, same-day crowns preserve more of the natural tooth structure since there's no need for extensive tooth preparation or temporary crowns. The digital design process also ensures precise fit and aesthetics, resulting in a more comfortable and natural-looking restoration.
