How long does it take to get a Dental Crown?

Dr. Tom Meyer, cosmetic dentist in Mt Prospect, explains the process of getting a dental crown!

Your dentist gave you the news….you need a dental crown. The last time you had one, you had to wait for 2 weeks for the crown to be created in a lab and had the hassle of trying to chew with the temporary one. You have questions about crowns, such as, have crowns changed since you got your last one? How long does it take to get a dental crown? Are there differences in the quality of crowns? How do you find the right dentist to do your crown? Understandably, you are hesitating to get your crown because you want more clarity and answers to your questions.

Getting dental crowns at other dentists can be a long process with multiple visits, as well as inconvenient and uncomfortable. At Meyer Dental Group, we believe that getting a crown should be straight forward, pain free and with minimal appointments.

How can Meyer Dental Group help?

In your pursuit of a better quality of life, you deserve assistance from Dr. Tom Meyer who: 

  1. Has 25+ years of dental experience, including dental implant/dentures solutions
  2. Is a Mastership Member of the International College of Craniomandibular Orthopedics
  3. Is a Member of the American Dental Society 

Dr. Tom Meyer has enjoyed practicing dentistry in the Chicago area since 1993. He proudly continues to provide excellent care to the community as his father did the generation before him. With over 25 years experience as a dentist, he has treated hundreds of patients with safe crowns and uses the most cutting edge technology for diagnosis and treatments. 

Dental crowns are used to restore chipped, damaged, or missing teeth. They are also used when there is a dental emergency, a root canal, or when decay in a tooth has reached the point where there is more filling than tooth. Your tooth is reshaped to accept a crown which is a replica of your tooth that fits over what remains of your tooth, or they can be placed on a dental implant. Crowns can be made of metal, porcelain, resin or ceramic. At Meyer Dental Group, we only use the safest materials to provide strong quality crowns.

Meyer Dental Group in Mt. Prospect offers the “One-Day Crown”

Typically, dental crown treatment involves two visits for the patient. At the first appointment, the dentist obtains a mold of the tooth to send to the lab to create the crown, and then prepares the tooth for the crown. The patient is fitted with a temporary crown and usually returns two weeks later to receive the permanent crown.

The good news is that technological advances now make it possible for technologically advanced dentists to do your crown in one visit! As a Cerec-certified dentist, Dr. Meyer has the training, experience and the Cerec equipment to create the permanent crown in less time – and on the first visit! The one day crown (or same day crown) eliminates the need for a second visit and the challenges of sensitivity and poor chewing which can occur with the temporary crown in between visits all in Mt. Prospect.

Getting a crown at Meyer Dental Group:

  • no return visits for crown placements – walk in and walk out with it all complete
  • no getting numb (injections) again at a second visit
  • relaxation time in a massage chair while your crown is milling  🙂
  • no sensitive temporary crowns

The process is simple at Meyer Dental Group to get your one-day crown

How Long Does Invisalign Take to Straighten Teeth? Your Questions Answered

How Long Does Invisalign Take to Straighten Teeth? Your Questions Answered

Have you considered getting your teeth straightened but still aren’t 100% sure if you should invest in it?

You’re not alone.

I’ve met a lot of people who like the idea of a straighter smile but hesitate to take action.

They aren’t sure what kind of braces to get. They’re concerned that the process will take too long. And they worry that it will be difficult to talk and eat, not to mention how hard it might be to practice good homecare.

Those questions and concerns are perfectly valid. Investing in orthodontics is a major commitment of both time and money.

To help you determine what course of action is best for you, I thought I’d answer some common questions we hear regularly in our Mount Prospect dental office.

Life with Invisalign – How Long Does Invisalign Take to Straighten Teeth and Other FAQs

How Long Does Invisalign Take to Straighten Teeth?

Typically, Invisalign is 50% faster than traditional braces. The average adult can be out of treatment within 12 months.

Of course, some cases are more difficult than others and require more time. Some people wear Invisalign aligners just as long as people in traditional braces.

When you have an Invisalign assessment, we’ll be able to determine how long your course of treatment will need to be.

Will Invisalign Work for Me?

This question requires more than a “yes” or “no” answer.

Each person is unique and has their individual needs.

People who have jawbone issues – like a crossbite, overbite, or underbite – are usually better candidates for traditional braces.

Many patients, though, respond well to the Invisalign process.

Here’s a little preview of how Invisalign works.

How Will the Invisalign Aligners Impact My Daily Life and Speech?

You’ll need to wear the aligners most of the day. In fact, the only time you should remove them is to eat or to brush and floss your teeth.

While the aligners aren’t super bulky, they will take some getting used to. However, it doesn’t take long before you’ll be talking like normal. Some people even forget they’re wearing them.

Do You Want a Healthy, Straighter, Gleaming Smile?

The next question you need to consider when making this decision is: Do you want to feel confident about your smile? how long does invisalign take

That may seem like a silly question. After all – who doesn’t want a nice smile? Let me assure you – you are worth the investment.

You have to look beyond the cosmetic components of orthodontics and look at the practical ones.

For example, straighter teeth make it easier to brush and floss, thereby reducing the risk of decay and gum disease.

That alone justifies the Invisalign cost for many.

We Believe You Deserve a Beautiful Smile and Want to Give You a Free Gift

My dental team and I believe that everyone deserves to have the smile they’ve always wanted.

That’s why, when my patients invest in Invisalign treatments this summer, they will receive a complimentary home whitening kit.

The kit includes custom-made trays that will perfectly fit your now-straight and beautiful teeth, Zoom whitening product and thorough in-office whitening instructions.

This kit will ensure that you not only get a straight smile, but that you have a bright one as well.
