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.

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.
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.
