In the past, you would have to wait days, weeks or even months for dental procedures. If you had a broken tooth, your dentist would have to make an impression of your tooth. He or she would have to send the impression off to get it made. You would, then, have to come back to have your crown, inlay, onlay or veneers placed.
However, times have changed. Now, you can get your teeth fixed the day you come in for a visit. With the newest in dental technology same-day dental services in NJ is now available.
Why Might I Need Same-Day Dental Services?
Did you break a tooth in the back of your mouth? Is it hurting you? If it isn’t, you could wait to get it fixed. Perhaps you could wait a few days to get the tooth fixed. However, if you break a tooth in the front of your mouth, you want to fix it right away. You want to restore your smile because you feel self-conscious. You also may have some cracked or chipped teeth, and you’ve decided you don’t want to wait any longer. You want to get veneers right now.
You might also have a painful broken tooth or one that has decay on the biting surface. We can help with that. We can restore the biting surface of your tooth with an inlay or onlay. All these procedures are possible because of same-day technology.
What Does Same-Day Service Look Like?
First, we will need to check out your teeth and make sure which are cracked, chipped or broken. Then, we X-ray and photograph your mouth to construct molds of the teeth you need to have fixed.
Inlays and Onlays
Both inlays and onlays help the biting surface of your tooth. Sometimes, if you have tooth decay, you can have a large cavity on your back molars. They are the most difficult to reach when you are brushing. Cavities can also hide on your back teeth until they begin to cause you pain. By that time, the bacteria that cause tooth decay may have made a large hole. Dentists have to create and, then, cement inlays and onlays onto your teeth. We can now do this for you the same day.
There are several reasons dentists use crowns. Usually, crowns cover and protect teeth that are broken, chipped, cracked or discolored. We can now create a crown for you while you wait. We can use crowns to protect a tooth that has a large cavity as well. After we treat the cavity and any infection associated with the cavity, we need to protect the tooth. Using a same-day crown can restore the tooth. We can also use crowns to quickly repair a tooth you broke on a piece of ice. We can repair a tooth you cracked while cracking a nut as well.
Veneers are thin porcelain shells we put on top of your teeth. Veneers can cover a lot of faults with your teeth. If you have teeth that are widely spaced, we can cover them with same-day porcelain veneers. Dentists can use veneers to cover chipped, cracked or broken teeth as well. We have even used veneers to cover teeth that have been discolored from accidents, injuries or medication. We can make your teeth look beautiful, uniform, and white.
