What Is a One-Visit Crown?

Getting a crown to fix a broken or damaged tooth often requires multiple visits to the dentist. Setting time aside for several dental visits can be hard in this fast-paced world. Fortunately, with the revolutionary technology of one-visit crowns, the entire procedure of getting a crown and fixing your tooth can be done in a single dental visit.

In this blog, our dental health professionals at Diana Dizik, D.D.S., General & Cosmetic Dentistry in San Mateo, California, share insights on one-visit crowns and their benefits.

What Makes One-Visit Crowns Different?

A crown is used to cover your tooth to improve its function or appearance after it has been damaged or affected by decay. It strengthens your tooth and makes your smile more beautiful. 

Traditional dental crowns require multiple visits to the dentist and can be quite a hassle for people with busy schedules.

One-visit crowns, on the other hand, are efficient, affordable, and fast. They only take around 2 hours to be designed and placed.

How Do One-Visit Crowns Work? 

For a traditional crown, the dentist prepares your tooth and then takes an impression to prepare the restoration. It can take a couple of days to weeks for the crown to be prepared and then placed. 

For a one-visit crown, the dentist takes an impression of the tooth with a digital scanner and then sends it to the laboratory. It takes about an hour for the crown to be made and delivered to the dentist. The custom-made crown is then fitted on your tooth, thus finishing the procedure on the same day.

Advantages of One-Visit Crowns

One-visit crowns have the following benefits:

  • You save a lot of time as it takes only 2 hours to complete the entire procedure
  • One-visit crowns are made from the same material as traditional crowns and thus you do not compromise on quality
  • They have a natural appearance and can blend in perfectly with your natural teeth
  • They are quite durable
  • Since the procedure is quick, the discomfort will only last for a brief period
  • One-visit crowns cost almost the same as traditional crowns
