Frequently Asked Questions
Who is an ideal candidate for a same-day crown?
If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your smile, a same-day crown may be the right solution for you. Ideal candidates for same-day crowns are looking to:
- Strengthen a tooth after a root canal
- Eliminate stains or discoloration
- Cover a chipped or cracked tooth
- Replace a missing tooth
Can I whiten a dental crown?
Unfortunately, regular teeth whitening treatments won’t work on dental crowns. Our same-day crowns are crafted to mimic the color of your natural teeth to seamlessly blend in with your smile. They’re resistant to staining and discoloration, so you won’t have to worry about whitening your dental crown. However, Dr. Lavi offers teeth whitening treatment if you’re looking to brighten your natural teeth to match the shade of your beautiful crown.
What are my options if my crown has been damaged?
If your crown has become damaged, we ask that you don’t try to fix it yourself and contact us immediately to schedule an appointment. Dr. Lavi will assess the damage to determine whether your crown can be fixed or replaced with a new restoration. Fortunately, our offices in Studio City and Los Angeles offer same-day dental crowns so you won’t have to worry about hiding your smile another day.
How much do same-day crowns cost?
The cost of a same-day crown varies for each patient and a number of factors, like how many you need, what it’s being used for, and the portion your insurance will cover. During your initial consultation, Dr. Lavi will evaluate your oral health, discuss your smile goals, and create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs. This will also include a detailed breakdown of the value of your procedure.
