One Visit Crowns

One Visit Crown from $949*

Whilst a precision made porcelain or gold laboratory crown is still accepted as the gold standard, the one visit crown (OVC) is an acceptable alternative. The OVC crown is a pre-made crown that is adapted and fitted onto your existing tooth to act and feel like a natural tooth. The advantages of an OVC are as follows:

  1. Where cost is a concern, the OVC is up to 50% or cheaper than a laboratory made crown.
  2. The OVC is generally less invasive than a full crown and therefore conserves more natural tooth structure.
  3. The OVC is a 1 visit procedure of approximately 60 minutes with no uncomfortable impressions required.
  4. The OVC is more durable and longer lasting than a large amalgam or composite filling.
  5. In largely broken down teeth with little mechanical retention, the OVC can perform better due to its higher bond strength to the remaining tooth than a full crown, which may depend on tooth structure for support.
  6. Teeth that have hairline cracks, which may result in the need for a root canal treatment long term are better served by the OVC as one can always complete the root canal treatment afterwards by drilling through the OVC.
  7. Teeth with a poor long term prognosis can be restored on a short to medium term basis, cost-effectively until the tooth needs to be extracted and replaced by a single tooth implant.
  8. People who have worn down their teeth due to grinding (bruxism) or acidic foods and liquids can have their teeth built up and bite restored with an OVC.
