All About Same-Day Crowns

A crown or (cap) is a cover that fits over a tooth that has been damaged by decay, broken, root canal treated, badly stained or misshapen. A crown looks and feels like a natural tooth and restores the strength and function of your tooth. CEREC same-day crowns require no impressions. We will design and create your dental crown and permanently bond it to your tooth all in one visit. No temporary crowns required!

What Are The Advantages Of Same-Day Crowns?

Before the technology came around, getting a crown took 2 to 3 appointments and required a notoriously uncomfortable temporary crown. Thanks to new techniques and equipment, getting your crown is easier than ever.

Same-day crowns offer the following extra advantages:
  • No messy impressions. We use a highly accurate and comfortable digital 3D scan.
  • Complete treatment in as little as one visit.
  • Less drilling required. We can preserve more of your natural tooth structure.

Same-Day Crown Treatment

Examining and preparing the tooth

During the appointment, we will examine your tooth. If the tooth is affected by decay, we will remove the damaged areas and clean it. If your tooth has stress fractures, a crown will help protect the tooth from breaking along the fracture. Then we will shape your natural tooth so the crown fits comfortably overtop.

Your crown custom made on site

Once your tooth has been prepared, we’ll use a 3D scanner to take a highly accurate digital scan of your tooth. We no longer require impressions or the use of trays. This 3D scan is used to create a digital model of your new crown. Your porcelain crown is made while you wait with our in-house machine.

Placement and polish

Your new crown will be bonded or cemented in place right away. No second appointment or temporary crown is needed. Your dentist will make a few final adjustments and ask how it feels to make sure it’s a perfect fit. After a final polish, your new crown is ready to go!
