Same-Day Crowns

From start to finish in just one appointment.

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 to your tooth. CEREC same-day crowns require no impressions. We will design and create your crown and permanently bond it to your tooth all in one visit. No temporary crowns required!

What’s the process of getting a crown?

Before CEREC technology came around, getting a crown took 2-3 appointments and required a notoriously uncomfortable temporary crown. Thanks to new techniques and technology, getting your crown is easier than ever. CEREC crowns offer the following advantages:

  • Highly accurate and comfortable digital 3D scan.
  • We can preserve more of your natural tooth structure.
  • Start to finish in one visit.
  • 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.

  • Shaping the Crown

    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 CEREC machine.

  • Placing the Crown

    Your new crown will be bonded 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!
