Same day crowns have revolutionized the process of getting dental restorations. In the past, patients would often have to wait weeks between having their tooth prepared for a crown and the final placement of their permanent restoration. We now use computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided milling (CAM) to provide patients with high quality dental crowns that are completed in a single visit. These crowns are strong, durable, and look natural, restoring function and appearance to your tooth.
The process starts with digital impressions taken with a specialized intraoral scanner, which eliminates the need for messy impression material and uncomfortable trays. These impressions are used to design a restoration that matches the look and shape of your tooth to ensure that the restoration interacts with your other teeth as it should. Your crown is milled from composite material that is carefully selected to blend in with the rest of your smile for a realistic appearance. The result is a restoration that matches the durability and aesthetics of a traditional crown with none of the hassle.

We’ve chosen to offer same day crowns at our office because we’re confident that they are even better than conventional crowns.
How long does a same day crown take?

Is getting a same day crown painful?
No, getting a same day crown is not painful. Before we begin any work to prepare your tooth, we will numb both the affected tooth and the soft tissue surrounding it to ensure that you don’t feel any pain. Following the same day crown procedure, you may experience some soreness and sensitivity, but this can be alleviated with over-the-counter pain relievers.
