Right now, if you have cavities, infection, a broken or chipped tooth, your dentist may recommend a crown to keep your tooth strong after a repair. However, it can take a few weeks to make a permanent crown. That's why dentists use temporary crowns after dental repairs, such as fillings and endodontic treatments. A crown can also strengthen a tooth after it breaks.
If you experience pain or discomfort in your tooth, it's important to visit an emergency dentist right away. A quick repair and a temporary crown can help save the tooth. Most broken teeth can be saved if you visit an emergency dentist soon after the injury. Same-day crowns are a type of crown that the dentist manufactures and installs in a single appointment.
With same-day emergency appointments available everywhere, you can be sure that your emergency doesn't have to turn into a disaster.
