Same Day Crowns (Inlays/Onlays)

As part of our efforts to provide a variety of options for our patients to receive their dental treatments, our Pickering dentists at Safavi Dental Clinic are offering same day crowns as well as inlays and onlays.

 

Typically, receiving a crown would require a minimum of two appointments with at least a ten day gap between the appointments. During the first appointment, your dentist in Pickering would “prep” the tooth and create a mould of it. This mould is sent to a lab in which the crown is made to the provided specifications and returned to the office. When the patient returns for the second appointment, it can be cemented onto the prepped tooth.

 

During this timeframe, the tooth is given a temporary crown to help protect it. This temporary crown is not created with the same longevity or durability as the upcoming fixture so you may want to take more care eating if you go with this method.

 

However, our Pickering dental clinic is able to expedite this process by taking a digital scan of the prepped tooth instead of a mould. Additionally, we are able to fabricate the crown in-house rather than sending it off to a lab so it should be ready to be added in the same day. Depending on your availability, you can can choose to either stay at our clinic until your crown is ready or you can come back later in the day when it is more convenient for you to have your new crown cemented to your tooth. This service is also offered for inlays and onlays.

 

If you are interested in receiving more information about our services or the process involved in receiving a same day crown, contact us today. Alternatively, you can request an appointment online. Our clinic is located near Pickering Town Centre to offer you convenience in your choices for your oral health.
