Once upon a time, having a dental crown required two appointments with Medford dentist Dr. Giamberardino. The first visit would usually be quite lengthy, because of the time required to take molded impressions of your tooth and the preparatory work necessary. In addition, patients always left wearing a temporary crown, which required a bit of gentle attention. After waiting at least two weeks for the dental lab to fabricate the permanent crown, a patient would return to the dentist to have the crown set. Now, however, there are same day crowns in Medford that make restoring your tooth a dream come true.

Here’s the scenario: you’re happily having dinner with friends when suddenly you bite down on something hard. You quickly realize that you can’t chew it, it’s not dissolving and it’s not melting in your mouth. Unfortunately, it’s a small piece of tooth that has chipped off. You may or may not be able to tell which tooth is affected, because the chipped tooth may not be one of your front teeth and you may not feel any pain. In any case, however, you should contact Medford cosmetic dentist Dr. Giamberardino and schedule an appointment, so he can determine the best course of treatment.
