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

3 HEALTH BENEFITS OF COSMETIC DENTAL TREATMENTS

Cosmetic dentistry is a widely discussed topic these days, and with good reason. It’s difficult not to notice how quickly and drastically it can improve your smile, and having a more beautiful appearance can certainly help to give you a boost of confidence.

Your Des Plaines dentist also wants you to know about some of the important health benefits. Cosmetic dental treatments can help to:

1. Reduce your risk for tooth decay and gum disease

Choosing to straighten crooked teeth with braces can do more than make your teeth look nicer. Tightly squeezed together teeth are often difficult to clean and create ideal nooks and crannies for plaque and bacteria to hide in, even when there is consistent oral hygiene.

2. Prevent a misaligned bite

Life happens and sometimes that means missing teeth. Whether your dentist had to remove one or more teeth, or you experienced some other trauma/injury, any missing teeth should be replaced.

When a gap is left anywhere along your gum line, the neighboring teeth can begin to drift into the open space. This shifting can change the alignment of your bite and cause other problems for your teeth and your overall health. This includes tooth grinding, also known as bruxism, and TMJ, a painful jaw joint disorder. Your dentist has many excellent and natural-looking options to replace missing teeth, including:

  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Implants

3. Treat TMJ

TMJ disorders often result from dental issues, such as a bad bite caused by missing or crooked teeth. Over time, this misaligned bite can put pressure on the jaw joints. Without treatment, you may begin to feel pain in the joints or hear a clicking noise when you chew, talk or yawn.

Fortunately, your dentist can treat the individual dental issues that caused your jaw misalignment. Overtime, these procedures work to correct your bite, realign your jaw and allow your jaw muscles to relax and heal. A dental approach helps to reduce or even resolve the pain for many TMJ sufferers. TMJ treatment may include:

  • Orthotics
  • Braces
  • Bridges, crowns and implants
