Can You Get a Crown in One Visit?

Thanks to advancements in dentistry, dental crowns have come a long way. Now, you can receive a crown in a single visit to the dentist! Here’s what you need to know about same-day crowns.

What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that covers an existing damaged tooth to restore its strength, size, appearance, and shape. It is custom-made to look just like your natural teeth, so it blends in seamlessly. Dental crowns can be used for treating:

  • Chipped, Cracked or Broken Teeth
  • Misshapen Teeth
  • Missing Teeth with Dental Implants
  • Weak Teeth
  • Worn-Down Teeth
  • Discolored Teeth

How CEREC® Same-Day Crowns Work

Traditional crowns require an off-site lab to create the permanent dental crown. Now, with CEREC technology, a 3D model can be made in-house using precise digital impressions and the final dental crown can be made using our on-site milling unit. CEREC crowns are made using a durable, ceramic material that can be perfectly matched to the shade of existing teeth.

There’s no back and forth with a dental lab, which could drag out the process for months. Since the crown is being made in-office, our team can quickly and easily make any necessary adjustments to the crown during your appointment!
