Have a Dental Emergency?
Temporary Crowns or Same-Day Crowns Can Provide Immediate Relief
If you've lost or damaged a tooth, you probably don't want to go another minute without help. Not only can it be painful but it also can prevent you from eating, smiling, and talking. So the idea of waiting for a permanent crown may make you feel even more overwhelmed.
Fortunately, a same-day or temporary crown can provide the immediate relief you deserve. That way you don't have to face the discomfort or lack of confidence caused by tooth loss.
Advanced Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Glastonbury, CT, can provide you with a same-day crown, or a temporary crown, as you wait for your custom porcelain crown to be created. Contact our dental office or call:

The Relationship Between Dental Crowns and Dental Implants
Dental implants are a type of screw placed in your gums, taking the spot of a missing or extracted tooth. After they are secure, your dentist will fix a crown over the implant, creating a natural-looking tooth.
Dental crowns mimic a natural tooth. They can fit over a damaged or filed tooth, as well as an implant, depending on your needs. They come in materials such as porcelain, providing a subtle, lifelike improvement to your smile.
How Can a Dentist Use a Dental Crown to Restore My Smile?
Provide Support for Damaged TeethThese restorations fit over severely damaged or decayed teeth. Compromised tooth structure is removed, and a custom crown is crafted to fit over the remaining portion of the tooth, restoring your ability to bite and chew properly.

A dental crown may be recommended if you:
Have Sufficient Remaining Tooth StructureA crown is only able to cap teeth that have enough healthy structure remaining. When teeth are too structurally compromised to support a crown, extraction is the only option.
Are Committed to Long-term CareThese restorations can last for many years as long as patients take proper care of them. That means brushing and flossing every day and visiting the dentist every six months for regular checkups.
