Same Day Crowns
Same day crowns can make the process of getting a crown easier, faster and more pleasant. Conventional crowns often require two visits to finish, and this means that you will need two dental appointments that take time away from your busy day, and more chair time. It also means you will need to wear a temporary restoration, which can be uncomfortable or unnatural-looking. If you are a candidate for crowns, Dr. Shindler, our Agoura Hills same day crowns dentist, may just recommend a same day crown.
As the name suggests, same day crowns are a type of crown that can be designed, made and placed in one day. At your appointment, Dr. Shindler, our expert in same day crowns in Agoura Hills, will numb the area before preparing the tooth. To prepare it, Dr. Shindler removes any diseased or decayed tissue that is threatening the health of the tooth. Then the tooth is carefully shaped to preserve maximum healthy structure while still allowing room for the crown to fit comfortably.

Next, we use a hand-held scanner to take a digital impression of the tooth, and Dr. Shindler, our Agoura Hills same day crowns dentist, will use this impression to create a virtual model of the tooth and design your final crown. The plans for your new crown are used by the in-office milling unit to create your crown from a single block of porcelain for a durable, natural-looking restoration.
One of the biggest benefits is that you can arrive at our office with a damaged tooth and leave with a fully restored, ready-to-use tooth. You will spend less time in the dental chair. Same day crowns are strong, long-lasting and designed to look just like your own tooth. They require no special care other than good brushing and flossing as well as regular checkups with our expert in same day crowns in Agoura Hills, Dr. Shindler.
