Replacing Crowns and Veneers
Though designed to last between five and 15 years, crowns and veneers can and do chip, break, fall out, and fail. Breakage or failure can happen for several reasons, including biting down too hard or chewing on non-food objects. Regardless of why crowns or veneers break or fall out, the damage can cause pain, discomfort, or embarrassment until fixed.
Offices that offer same day dentistry have the equipment and know-how to fabricate prostheses in-office. This equipment negates the need for the back-and-forth between dental office and lab and, subsequently, the need for additional appointments. As a result, patients can enjoy a restored smile within hours of damaging it instead of having to live with the issue for weeks.

Same Day Options for Replacing Missing Teeth
Tooth replacement options take weeks to months to complete, depending on which procedure a patient undergoes. For many people, it is unacceptable to have to wait months to be able to chew, smile, talk, and socialize comfortably once again. Fortunately, same day dentistry also includes Same Day implants.
Traditionally, the implant process is lengthy and requires multiple steps. However, with Same Day implants, the dentist skips the wound healing and osseointegration processes and places the implant on the same day after extracting the decayed tooth. This eliminates months of waiting and the discomfort that comes with it.

Same Day Teeth Whitening
Many teeth whitening methods rely on one particular ingredient to be effective: time. However, certain in-office whitening procedures that use high concentrations of hydrogen peroxide in their solutions can yield visible results right away. These procedures also utilize a high-tech light source, which breaks up the molecules that cause stains and discoloration. Over-the-counter solutions and other forms of in-office whitening, on the other hand, can take weeks or months to achieve any drastic difference.

Same Day Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is a popular and conservative alternative to dental veneers and other procedures designed to enhance a smile. Dental bonding uses a tooth-colored composite resin material to conceal imperfections in teeth.
The bonding resin serves as a protective coating for the teeth, safeguarding them against future damage. Due to its conservative nature, dental bonding is something most dentists can perform in the office on the same day. Unlike some treatments, bonding does not necessitate prosthetics or the help of a lab.

Candidacy for Same Day Dentistry
Patients should note that not everyone is an ideal candidate for same day dentistry. Many of the procedures that can be performed in one appointment rely on a foundation of good health. Given this information, patients should remain realistic about what their dentists can and cannot do in a single appointment.
If a patient has less than stellar oral health, the dentist may need to prep the mouth for subsequent procedures or refer a patient to a specialist. For instance, if a person who is missing teeth also has gum disease, the dentist will need to treat the gum issues (that likely caused the tooth loss) before proceeding with the restoration process.
