Same-Day Crowns, also known as CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics), is a revolutionary dental treatment option that allows patients to receive permanent crowns in just one visit to the dentist. These crowns are custom-made using advanced CAD/CAM technology, which stands for Computer-Aided Design and Computer-Aided Manufacturing.

Advantages of Same-Day Crowns

  • Time-saving: With traditional crowns, you would typically need to make multiple trips to the dentist's office over a span of several weeks. However, same-day crowns eliminate the need for multiple visits as they can be designed and placed in just one appointment.
  • Convenience: Since same-day crowns are created on-site using advanced technology like CAD/CAM systems, there is no waiting time or need for temporary restorations. You can walk out of your dental appointment with your permanent crown in place.
  • Enhanced aesthetics: Same-day crowns are made from high-quality materials that closely resemble natural teeth, providing a seamless blend with your existing smile. The color and shape can be customized to match the appearance of your other teeth perfectly.
  • Comfortable fit: Thanks to digital impressions and computer-guided milling machines utilized in same-day crown procedures, you can expect an accurate fit that ensures maximum comfort while eating and speaking.
  • Durability: Same-day crowns are crafted from strong materials such as ceramic or zirconia, making them highly durable and long-lasting. They resist chipping or breaking under normal biting forces.
  • Minimal tooth preparation: Compared to traditional crowns that require significant reshaping of the tooth structure, same-day crowns preserve more of the healthy tooth enamel during preparation due to their precise design process.
  • Same visit problem-solving: If you have a damaged or decayed tooth causing discomfort or pain, getting a same-day crown allows immediate restoration without having to suffer until another appointment becomes available.

The Process of Getting a Same-Day Crown

Getting a same-day crown is a convenient and efficient process that eliminates the need for multiple dental appointments. The process starts with your dentist taking digital impressions of your teeth using advanced technology. These digital images are then used to create a 3D model of your tooth, allowing for precise customization of the crown.

Once the design is finalized, it is sent to an in-house milling machine that carves the crown out of a block of ceramic material. This milling process takes only minutes, ensuring that you don't have to wait long for your new crown.

After milling, any necessary adjustments or polishing are made to ensure a perfect fit and natural appearance. The final step involves bonding the crown securely onto your tooth using strong dental cement.

The best part about this entire process is that it can be completed in just one visit! There's no need to wear temporary crowns or come back for additional appointments. With same-day crowns, you can walk out of the dental office with your permanent restoration in place – all in one day!

So if you're looking for convenience and efficiency without compromising on quality, consider getting a same-day crown. Your dentist will guide you through every step of the process to ensure optimal results and restore both functionality and aesthetics to your smile quickly and effectively!


Same-day crowns offer a host of benefits that make them an attractive option for individuals in need of dental restorations. With their convenience, time-saving capabilities, and natural-looking results, there's no wonder why more and more people are opting for same-day crowns.

Gone are the days of multiple appointments, messy impressions, and temporary crowns. Thanks to advancements in technology and dentistry, you can now have a custom-made crown created and placed within just a few hours.
