Protect your smile from further damage and improve its appearance with same-day crowns.

Has our Franklin, KY, family dentist, Dr. David Fowler, examined your smile and determined that you have a tooth that could benefit from a dental crown? Crowns are one of the today's most commonly placed restorations, and they can be used to either restore a damaged tooth or in conjunction with a different treatment to replace a missing tooth altogether. Of course, same-day crowns have completely changed the way our patients restore their smiles, making the whole process significantly easier.

What are same-day crowns?

These crowns are very similar to traditional crowns—they appear the same, are made from the same material, and are just as durable and long-lasting as their traditional counterparts. The difference lies in the process. Instead of turning to an outside dental lab to make a crown, our Franklin, KY, dentist and his team can now make your crown in-house using digital impressions, specialized computer software, and our very own milling station.

What are the pros of same-day crowns?

As you might imagine, there are many advantages to choosing same-day crowns, including:

A perfectly fitted and realistic restoration

In our office, we use a special CAD/CAM system to capture the exact shape of your teeth. These digital impressions provide us with a very accurate measurement of the problem tooth, from which our computerized system can create a perfectly-fitted crown. Same-day crowns are made to look just like a real tooth and they offer a superior fit.

Fast and efficient treatment

We know the last thing you want to do is to keep coming back into our office for treatment, and same-day crowns make it possible for our patients to get their new restoration in just a single appointment. In fact, the whole process takes about 90 minutes from start to finish.

No more temporary crowns

If you opt to get same-day dental crowns, you also won’t have to worry about wearing a temporary crown for weeks. This is because we no longer have to rely on an outside dental lab to make your crown—we make it right here in our office with special machinery and technology. No temporary crown is needed anymore. You’ll come into the office and walk out with your permanent crown in place.
