The Benefits of Same-Day Crowns

Using the cutting-edge CEREC technology, we can build and place a dental crown in just a single, 1-2 hour appointment

With a same-day crown, you won’t have to wear an uncomfortable temporary or schedule multiple appointments to restore your tooth

CEREC crowns are made out of a solid block of tooth-colored porcelain, and they look and feel just like a natural tooth

With CEREC technology, you can get immediate relief from the pain and discomfort of a decayed or damaged tooth

How Do Same-Day Crowns Work?

In the past, dental crowns had to be made by an outside dental lab, which requires 2 appointments over a period of 2-3 weeks. However, same-day crowns have been made possible by advances in CEREC and CAD/CAM (Computer-Aided Design/Manufacturing) technology. Same-day crowns are made by scanning your mouth with special imaging equipment, then uploading the information into a milling machine. 

Dr. Meadows or Dr. Villalobos will design your crown based on the scans we take of your teeth, then load a block of porcelain into our in-office CEREC machine, which will automatically trim the block into the proper shape. Then, the crown can be permanently placed onto your tooth to cover and restore any damage.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Same-Day Crown?

Same-day crowns are appropriate for almost every situation when a traditional, lab-made crown is recommended. They can be used to restore decayed, infected, or damaged teeth, or for cosmetic purposes, in some cases.

However, there are a few exceptions. Teeth that are broken below the gum line, for example, can’t be treated with a CEREC crown. The 3D scanner used to capture an image of your mouth cannot be used to scan this area, so a traditional crown may be required. To see if a same-day crown is right for you, contact Coronado Dental Associates and book a visit today!

What Can I Expect From the CEREC Process?

After you’ve been approved for a same-day crown, Dr. Melanie Villalobos or Dr. Margaret Meadows will begin by cleaning and numbing the treatment area. Then, any decayed or damaged enamel will be removed and your tooth will be shaped into a strong platform to which your crown can be attached.

Next, your mouth will be scanned with a handheld 3D scanner. We will upload these images and use cutting-edge software to begin designing your crown. Once the design has been finalized, a block of tooth-colored porcelain will be loaded into our CEREC machine and your crown will be custom-made.

Next, Dr. Villalobos or Dr. Meadows will check the fit of the crown and make any final adjustments. Finally, your crown will be bonded into place permanently using dental cement, completing the procedure.
