All About Same-Day Crowns
A crown, also known as a cap, is a protective covering designed for teeth that have suffered damage due to decay, fractures, root canals, severe staining, or irregular shapes. Crowns closely resemble natural teeth in both appearance and sensation, fully restoring the tooth’s strength and functionality.
With CEREC same-day crowns, there’s no need for messy impressions. During a single visit, we will custom-design and fabricate your crown, securely affixing it to your tooth. Say goodbye to temporary crowns – we ensure a hassle-free experience with permanent results!
What Are The Advantages Of Same-Day Crowns?
Prior to the advent of modern technology, acquiring a crown typically necessitated 2 to 3 appointments and the placement of a notoriously uncomfortable temporary crown. However, thanks to innovative techniques and advanced equipment, the process of obtaining a crown has become remarkably more convenient.
Same-day crowns provide several additional benefits:
- Elimination of messy impressions: We employ a highly precise and comfortable digital 3D scan instead.
- Expedited treatment: Your crown can be completed in as little as a single visit.
- Reduced need for drilling: We can conserve a greater portion of your natural tooth structure.

Frequently Asked Questions
Dental crown lifespans typically range from 5 to 15 years or more, depending on various factors such as oral hygiene, diet, and the material used. To maximize the lifespan of your crown, maintain excellent oral hygiene practices, avoid chewing on hard objects, and attend regular dental check-ups.
Unlike natural teeth, dental crowns do not respond to teeth whitening treatments. If a crown becomes discolored, replacement may be necessary to restore its appearance.
Some patients may experience temporary sensitivity or discomfort after a crown is placed, especially if the tooth’s nerve was involved in the procedure. This discomfort typically subsides within a few days to a week. If it persists, consult your dentist.
The choice between a dental crown and other restorative procedures depends on the extent of tooth damage. Crowns are often used when a tooth is severely decayed, cracked, or weakened. Your dentist will assess your specific situation and recommend the most suitable treatment.
Dental crowns can be made from various materials, including porcelain, metal, or a combination of both (porcelain-fused-to-metal). The choice depends on factors like aesthetics, durability, and the location of the tooth. Discuss your preferences and needs with your dentist to select the most appropriate material for your crown.
