What Are Same-Day Crowns?
We’re pleased to be able to offer our patients same-day crowns using state-of-the-art CEREC technology. CEREC crowns are made with strong, realistic tooth-colored ceramic material, allowing them to restore both function and appearance to your tooth.
The first step in getting a CEREC crown is getting digital impressions so we can design a crown that matches the size and shape of your natural tooth. Then, the affected tooth is prepared for your crown by trimming it to size. A second impression is taken, which allows us to fit your crown precisely to the prepared tooth. Our in-house CEREC milling machine then fabricates your crown right in our office so it can be bonded to your tooth. The entire process is completed in one appointment.
Benefits of Same-Day Crowns
No Temporary Crown
You won’t need to wear a temporary crown while you wait weeks for your permanent crown to be made by a dental laboratory. You’ll walk out of our office with your final restoration.
No Increase in Cost
Same-day crowns cost about the same as most other types of tooth-colored crowns.
Fewer Office Visits
Instead of two office visits, a same-day crown only requires one visit to our office.
