Placing a dental crown over a damaged tooth in order to keep it from becoming further damaged is a common treatment option today. Traditionally, a patient must make two different dental appointments in order to have a crown placed in their mouth. The first appointment is necessary to prepare the tooth as well as make an impression of the tooth to send to the lab, which will be completed in about three weeks. The second appointment is when the crown is actually placed in a patient's mouth. Now, this can all be done in just one dental visit.
Many dental patients who are missing one or more of their teeth are now choosing a dental implant as a tooth replacement option. Traditionally, the implant is surgically inserted into the jawbone, which takes many months to heal. Once it is healed, the false tooth can then be placed over the implant. Now, patients can have the entire process completed in just one visit to the dental office, making replacing teeth easier than ever.
A dental veneer is a very thin piece of strong porcelain that is used to cover up imperfections in the teeth, especially when they are located in the front of the mouth. Veneers are often used to repair chipped teeth and broken teeth, which require quick repair. Every veneer is custom made for each patient in order to ensure they are comfortable to wear and look natural. Traditionally, it takes about four weeks for dental veneers to be made, requiring two dental appointments. Now, veneers can be placed on just one day.
