Same Day Crowns
Having crowns put on your teeth is often a tedious, extended process. Dentists prescribe crowns to reinforce a weak tooth, repair chipped or cracked teeth, to hold a dental bridge in position, to improve the tooth’s appearance, or for a variety of other reasons. Some crowns are emergencies such as the example where someone breaks a tooth while eating. Other crowns correct chronic, long-term damage such as teeth that are worn thin from years of grinding. This capability is currently limited to a minority of dental offices who have the right training and equipment. Ask our receptionist about scheduling your visit.
