Damaged teeth can make chewing and speaking quite uncomfortable, while untreated tooth decay can cause irritation and sensitivity that can become increasingly painful over time. As long as your tooth roots and pulp are healthy, we do everything we can to save teeth at NuSmile Dental. Our team has many years of cosmetic dentistry experience including crafting beautiful same-day restorations using our CAD CAM 5-axis milling unit. When you visit Dr. Jeremy Thompson, you’ll receive custom-made, premium quality, same-day dental crowns and bridges in Saratoga Springs, UT that will make you proud to smile. Whether you chipped a tooth a few days before a wedding or need to look your best for an upcoming job interview, same-day dental crowns and bridges can be a lifesaver.
Outsourced crowns take several weeks to create and require wearing a temporary crown that typically doesn’t fit well. Frequently, the permanent crown needs refinements, so the dentist will place it and test it multiple times to achieve an ideal fit. Some dentists use temporary cement to enable you to test out the crown before it’s permanently placed during a third appointment. Instead of biting down on messy and unpleasant-tasting dental putty and waiting weeks for a dental lab to deliver your new crown or bridge, our in-house, state-of-the-art technology allows getting permanent dental crowns or bridges the same day as your visit. Dr. Thompson has an artistic background that makes visualizing and creating beautiful restorations easier.
Crowns can achieve some of the same cosmetic goals as veneers, but since they surround your entire tooth, they offer greater functional stability. Other uses include strengthening or protecting a tooth with a large filling, attaching bridges, protecting a weak tooth from breaking, restoring a broken one, and as the final restoration for dental implants. Same-day crowns can also be an option for restoring badly discolored, misshaped, misaligned, or stained teeth.
Even a single missing tooth can cause loss of bone and shifting of surrounding teeth. Dental bridges consist of several crowns that replace one or more missing teeth in a row. They attach to one or both teeth on either side of your empty tooth socket(s) to restore aesthetics and function and restore a complete smile after tooth loss. In many cases, we can also create bridges in one visit.
Our in-house milling machine provides Dr. Thompson and our laboratory technician with the ability to offer versatile and convenient same-day restorations. Advanced technology makes it possible to take digital impressions, design your restoration in 10 minutes, mill it from a ceramic block in another 10, and fire it in two hours for natural-looking 3-hour crowns!
