What You Should Know about Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are used widely across dentistry because they are practical, time-tested, and contribute to the health and aesthetics of your smile.

Your dentist in Fayetteville, AR offers same-day tooth crowns. This means no waiting for your crown to ship from an outside lab and no stacked appointments to get your crown fitted and polished. Typically, it takes a single appointment to create and fit your tooth crown!

What Is a Same-Day Dental Crown in Fayetteville, AR?

 A tooth crown is a cover that goes over a prepared tooth. It is shaped and colored to flush with your smile—no one will notice that you have a capped tooth.

Same-day dental crowns mean that you wake up in the morning in need of a tooth crown and go to bed that night with a quality tooth crown crafted right here in our dental office!

How We Use Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are used for several purposes because they are strong and versatile.

If you have a root canal treatment or a severely damaged tooth, your dentist may choose to finish treatment with a dental crown instead of a tooth filling. A dental crown helps support a weak or damaged tooth while concealing the flaws.

Cosmetically, we may use dental crowns to hide a tooth chip, discoloration, or a small gap between teeth.

A dental crown also caps a dental implant and acts as your new tooth following implant placement and integration.

Dental bridges rely on dental crowns for anchoring—the crowns cap the healthy tooth to the left and right of the space. We connect prosthetic teeth to these two crowns to fill the gap.

When you consider how important a dental crown is, it only makes sense to reduce the wait.
