What Is a Same-Day Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is designed to fit perfectly over a tooth. Encapsulating the tooth this way strengthens, which prevents further damage and protects it from decay. Dental crowns can be crafted from many materials, but we prefer to offer porcelain dental crowns. This material is durable, crack-resistant, and well-known for how much it looks like natural tooth enamel. Dental crowns are most often used for teeth that:

  • Are cracked or broken
  • Are weakened from a large filling or area of decay
  • Have recently been treated with root canal therapy
  • Are naturally short or small
  • Are being replaced with a dental implant

The key difference between a traditional dental crown and a same-day dental crown is how quickly you can begin enjoying the results!

The Process of Getting a Same-Day Dental Crown

While a traditional dental crown may take several weeks to create at a local dental lab, you can walk out of our office with a same-day crown in just one visit! First, we’ll inspect your tooth and clean away any damaged or decayed tissue. Then, we’ll remove a thin layer of enamel to make room for the dental crown and take impressions of the area. Instead of fitting you with a temporary crown and sending you home until your next appointment, you’ll then wait in our comfortable office for about an hour while our in-house CEREC technology creates your restoration. Before you know it, you’ll be back in the examination chair having your permanent dental crown bonded into place!
