same day dental crowns

A dental crown can help your smile so much if you have a damaged tooth. Sometimes, a cracked or broken tooth can be saved by a dental crown instead of needing to be replaced. Anytime a natural tooth can remain in your smile, it’s a good thing.

However, some dental crowns can’t be provided in one day, which means you could be fitted with a temporary crown. Temporary crowns may shield your tooth while your actual crown is being created, but they can also lead to unforeseen dental issues.

But that’s not the case at Pickett Family Dental!

We proudly offer same-day dental crowns to protect your smile as effectively and efficiently as possible. If you need a dental crown fast, call our Keller, TX office at 817-431-5514 to schedule an appointment.

In the meantime, read on to learn how same-day crowns can repair dental damage fast and save you the hassle of a temporary crown.

The Pitfalls Of Temporary Crowns

Dental crowns can take up to two weeks to create. In the meantime, you could be dealing with the discomfort and unpredictability of a “temporary.” Temporary crowns have been known to break or fit oddly. If your temporary crown were to break, you’d have to report back to the dentist to have the problem solved, which just soaks up time and money.

If your temporary broke and you didn’t visit your dentist quickly to deal with it, you could wind up needing a root canal. This would just result in more time spent away from your job or family, as well as require another temporary crown to be placed to protect your tooth.

Should your temporary not fit well on your tooth, you could experience difficulty chewing, causing issues with your diet and an inability to consume nutritious foods.

So what if you didn’t have to deal with temporary crowns? What if you could have a strong new crown placed on the same day as your visit to the dentist?

The benefits are obvious, which is why Dr. Pickett provides  same-day crowns at Pickett Family Dental. Call 817-431-5514 to schedule a consultation with our Keller, TX dentist so he can protect your smile as quickly and comfortably as possible.

Why You May Need A Same-Day Dental Crown

If you’ve suffered an injury or have a tooth damaged by decay, a same-day crown from Dr. Pickett can eliminate any pain you’re experiencing and protect not only your damaged tooth but your other teeth, as well.

Let’s say you’ve been jogging or riding your bike and suddenly meet the pavement. If you break a tooth and can collect the pieces, in many cases Dr. Pickett can use a same-day crown to put them back in place and save your natural tooth.

You may have recently had a large cavity removed or a root canal performed. A same-day crown completely protects your tooth after treatment and looks just like a natural member of the rest of your smile.

Creating Your Same-Day Solution

It almost seems too easy. At Pickett Family Dental, the journey to your protected smile involves:

  • A 3D scan of your mouth to provide Dr. Pickett with the best look at your smile’s condition
  • Digital impressions to design your crown
  • A brief waiting period while our CEREC milling machine creates a comfortable and natural-looking crown that will benefit your smile for years

The dental crown process at our office provides additional benefits other than saving you time. Our digital impressions eliminate the need for messy molding materials and tools, which often cause patients to gag.

Your new crown will be ready within a few hours, and Dr. Pickett will gently place it so you can step out of our office, hop in your car, and greet the first person you see with a smile full of confidence.
