What are Dental Crowns?
A dental crown is a type of dental restoration that completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. They are typically made from porcelain or ceramic and are very strong. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth or when a tooth is too damaged to be repaired with a simple filling. Crowns are also used for cosmetic purposes to dramatically improve the appearance of a tooth.

Same Day Crowns Using CEREC Technology
Traditionally, getting a dental crown has been a two-step process. First, the tooth is prepared by removing any decay and shaping the tooth so that the crown can be placed over it. A mold or impression is then made of the prepared tooth (or teeth), and a temporary crown is placed. The mold is sent to a dental lab where the permanent crown is made.
With same-day dental crowns, the entire process can be completed in one visit. The tooth is prepared as it would be for a traditional crown. An impression is made, but instead of a temporary crown being placed, a 3-D image of the prepared tooth is sent to a CEREC technology, which can fabricate the permanent crown from a solid block of ceramic. The entire process usually takes about an hour.

Advantages of Same-Day Dental Crowns
Same-day dental crowns offer several advantages over traditional crowns. Because same-day crowns are made in a single visit, there is no need for a second appointment (and the associated second dental visit). This can save time and money. In addition, because same-day crowns are made with CEREC technology, they fit more precisely than traditional crowns, which are made by hand. This can lead to a better fit and a more natural-looking result.

Same Day Crowns FAQs
How do same-day crowns compare to traditional crowns?
Same-day crowns are made using CEREC technology and are ready to be placed on the tooth in just one visit. On the other hand, traditional crowns require two visits to the dentist. During the first visit, the dentist will take an impression of the tooth and send it to a dental lab. The dental lab will then create the crown, which can take a few days or weeks. The second visit is when the dentist will actually place the crown on the tooth. Overall, same-day crowns are more convenient since they can be done in just one visit.
What are the benefits that come with the same day option?
Dental crowns are an excellent way to improve the appearance of your smile and protect your teeth from further damage. One of the major benefits of choosing same day dental crowns is that you can avoid the need for a temporary crown. This can save you time and money, as well as the hassle of having to make another appointment for a permanent crown.
Can I get crowns in one appointment?
Crowns are one of the most common dental procedures. And while getting a crown used to mean waiting a week or two for the lab to create your restoration, now you can get same day crowns. That’s right, you can walk into your dentist’s office and leave with a new, beautiful, and fully functional tooth.
But how are same day crowns possible? Thanks to new technology, your dentist can now create your crown right in the office. With CEREC technology, your dentist can take an impression of your tooth, create a 3D image of your restoration, and then mill your crown in the office. The entire process takes about an hour, and you’ll leave with a new tooth.
Why do I need a crown?
There are many reasons you might need a crown. If you have a tooth that is severely decayed, a large filling, or a root canal, a crown may be necessary to protect the tooth and restore it to its original function and appearance. A crown can also be used to improve the appearance of a misshapen or discolored tooth.
Does a same day crown fit as well?
If you’re considering getting a same day crown, you may be wondering if it will fit as well as a traditional crown. The answer is yes! Same day crowns are made using CEREC technology, which allows them to be made to fit your mouth perfectly. So if you’re looking for a crown that will fit great and look natural, a same day crown is a great option.
How much do same day crowns cost?
Same day crown price varies depending on your specific treatment plan. Prices may also vary depending on location, materials used, and the complexity of the procedure. While the upfront cost of same day crowns may be higher compared to traditional crowns, they can ultimately save you time by eliminating the need for multiple appointments.

How does same day crowns work?
With same day crowns, you can get a custom-fitted crown in a single visit thanks to a cool computer-aided design and manufacturing system (CAD/CAM). First, our dentist uses a 3D scanner to create a digital impression of your tooth, which our computer uses as a blueprint for a precisely fitting crown. Then, a milling machine carves the crown out of ceramic or resin. Finally, we bond the crown to your tooth using dental cement. This entire process typically takes about two hours, allowing our patients to receive a fully functional and aesthetically pleasing crown in just one visit. Same day crown procedures offers a convenient and time-saving alternative to traditional crowns, which typically require multiple visits over several weeks. Book your appointment today!
How painful is having six crowns put in on the same day?
Many people are concerned about the potential pain associated with having multiple crowns put in on the same day. While some patients may experience mild discomfort or sensitivity after the procedure, most find the process to be virtually pain-free. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area before the crowns are placed, ensuring that our patients have as minimal pain as possible during the procedure. After the anesthesia wears off, patients may experience some sensitivity or discomfort, but this typically resolves within a few days. Over-the-counter pain relievers can help alleviate any discomfort. Book your appointment today!
What type of crowns are created same day in dental office?
Did you know that dental offices can actually make same day crowns using a range of different materials? It’s true! You can choose from ceramic, resin, or zirconia, depending on your preferences and needs. Ceramic and resin crowns are pretty popular due to how natural they look and how durable they are, but if you need something really strong and resistant to wear, zirconia might be the way to go. Dental offices use a computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) system, which lets them get super precise measurements and designs. This means that each crown is custom-fitted to your mouth and teeth, so you know it’s going to fit and feel just right. And the best part? You can usually get it all done in just one appointment! No need to schedule multiple visits or take extra time off work. Book your appointment today!
