Kip J. Jones, DDS, is pleased to provide answers to all your questions about same day crowns in Layton, Utah.
Same day crowns are a convenient and affordable alternative to the traditional method of getting a crown.

Now, with same day crowns, you can get an aesthetically pleasing, comfortable crown while you wait. If you are looking for same day crowns in Layton, Utah, please contact us for pricing and packages.
No Need for Traditional Crowns
Crowns are tooth-like caps that cover damaged teeth. Traditionally, the dentist removes part of the tooth, usually the decayed part, and then shapes the remaining part of the tooth to fit a crown. The patient gets a temporary crown while the dentist waits for an off-site lab to create the crown. Then the patient must return for another appointment, where the dentist affixes the crown.
Imagine how nice it would be to eliminate an extra dentist appointment, a second dose of anesthetics, all that messy impression material and several weeks of an annoying temporary crown. Instead, choose convenience and comfort when you select a dentist in Layton, Utah that offers same day crowns.
Why Same Day Crowns Are Better
When it comes to same day crowns in Layton Utah, the process is much faster and more accurate than with traditional crowns. Same day crowns are possible when a dentist has a special machine that uses digital imagery to create a 3-D picture of the tooth, plus pictures of the teeth on either side. The dentist selects the type of crown needed, then makes any modifications as needed.
When all the data has been gathered and entered, the machine sculpts a crown from a resilient, durable material. The dentist can then finish the procedure on the patient, all in the same visit. Within a short waiting period, a crown is made right in the machine, while you wait comfortably. The color and texture of the same day crown is remarkably like your original tooth, allowing it to fit your smile perfectly.
