Restorative dentistry helps restore missing or damaged teeth to full functionality by restoring them with the help of fillings, bridges, crowns, and more.

In the first, the dentist cleans and prepares the tooth for the crown. They will place a temporary crown over the tooth while they prepare the permanent one, which they fit in the second visit.
If you don’t want to go through the hassle of going in for multiple visits, you can opt to get same-day crowns instead.
As the name suggests, if you opt for same-day crowns, you don’t need to come in for multiple visits.

At Serenity Dental, we provide our customers with high-quality same-day crowns to help protect their teeth from further damage and restore to optimal working condition.
