If you need a dental crown in Paducah, we can provide one for you in a single visit!Your teeth are incredibly strong. They perform a variety of tasks every single day, including biting, tearing, chewing, controlling airflow for speech, and more. The teeth are the hardest substance in the body, even harder than your bones. They can stand up to much use, but they are not indestructible. Caring for your teeth, with regular brushing, flossing, and dental visits, help to ensure that they stay strong and healthy, but there are still instances in which the teeth can suffer decay or damage.

When damage does occur, the structure of the affected tooth becomes compromised, and it is more likely to face complications such as further damage and infections. At Woodyard Dental Care, PSC, we can provide protection and strength for a compromised tooth with same day crowns.

What is a Dental Crown?

A crown is a type of dental restoration. It is a cap that covers the entire visible surface of a damaged or weakened tooth and is meant to restore the functions of the tooth while avoiding the need for an extraction and tooth replacement. Crowns have several functions, including protecting a damaged tooth from further harm, providing strength to the tooth can function normally, and prevent bacteria from potentially entering the internal structure of the affected tooth, thereby preventing serious infections. Crowns are usually made from one of three materials, metal, porcelain fused to metal, and ceramic. Ceramic is often the preferred material, as it is fairly strong and blends in perfectly with the rest of your natural teeth.

How are Dental Crowns Traditionally Placed?

Typically, crowns take two visits complete, with a two-week span between.

First Visit

The first visit involves preparing the tooth and taking impressions.
•  We begin by providing a local anesthetic.
•  Once the anesthetic has taken effect, we remove a portion of the enamel from the affected tooth. This is done to create enough space for your restoration to fit comfortably in your mouth.
•  After the tooth is prepared, the impressions are sent to a lab, where the crown is designed, created and sent back.
•  Because it can take two weeks for your final restoration to be ready, you are provided with a temporary crown. This crown is meant to protect the tooth during your wait, but there is always a risk that bacteria can get in, or the tooth may suffer further damage.

Second Visit

•  Once the final crown is ready, we will let you know
•  When you come in, we will check that the crown fits
•  Then, we set the crown in place, and you're done!

What is the Same-Day Crown Process?

At Woodyard Dental Care PSC, we have eliminated the wait time, and the need for a second appointment, for your final crown with same day crowns.

•  After preparing your tooth, we take digital impressions using the Trios 3Shape scanner.
•  The scans are sent to a computer, where we can design the crown in 3D.
•  The Trios 3Shape is the only scanner that scans in true color, which allows us to look at every angle of the tooth, as well as the adjacent teeth, for a perfect color match.
•  Once our design phase is complete, the information is then sent to our in-house Planmill by Plan Mecha milling machine.
•  The restoration is milled out of a single ceramic block.
•  We trim the block and add a glaze before finally firing the crown in the oven.
•  The entire process is done while you wait in the chair, and as soon as it is finished, we cement it into place!

How can I get a Crown Placed in One Day?

Crowns are a great option for restoring a damaged tooth, providing it with strength and protection. However, when you have to wait two weeks or more for your final restorations, there is the potential for complications such as an infection to occur.

Same day crowns avoid the need for temporary crowns, significantly reducing your risk for complications, by preparing the tooth and providing you with a final crown in a single visit. Call Woodyard Dental Care PSC today at (270) 408-1321 for more information and to schedule your consultation.
