Get a Crown in a Day
Same-Day dental Crowns
If you have a damaged or decayed tooth, it’s important to get help right away, but we understand that it can be hard to find the time to come in for multiple appointments. That’s why we offer CEREC same-day crowns. With CEREC technology, we can build and place a crown in just one short appointment, rather than requiring you to come back for multiple visits. To learn more about CEREC same-day crowns or book a consultation with Dr. Will at our Brentwood dental office, contact us today!
CEREC Crowns Vs. Traditional Crowns
What’s the Difference?
Traditional dental crowns are typically created in a third-party dental lab and are made out of porcelain. With traditional crowns, a dentist will take impressions of your teeth and send them to an outside lab where your crown will be manufactured. This process can take up to 3-4 weeks. Traditional crowns are very strong and durable, but the process of creating one involves multiple visits, wearing an uncomfortable temporary crown, and a large time commitment.
CEREC same day crowns are created by a machine in our office that can trim a crown out of a solid block of porcelain in just a few minutes, based on digital scans and images of your teeth. No impressions are necessary. Your mouth is simply scanned, and then the information is uploaded to manufacture your crown. Once this is complete, your new crown can be placed on the same day.
How Do I Get a Same-Day Crown?
Understanding The dental crown Process
To begin the CEREC crown process, your mouth will be numbed and Dr. Will will trim the tooth which will be receiving the dental crown. Next, he will use a special CEREC scanning tool to take a 3D scan of the inside of your mouth. After this, he will design your crown using our CEREC machine. It takes just a few minutes to create your crown from a block of porcelain using our CEREC technology. When your crown is ready, Dr. Will will check it for proper fit. Once the crown fits perfectly, it will be bonded into place permanently. The entire process usually takes less than 2 hours, so treatment can fit into even the busiest schedules.
Is a CEREC crown Right for Me?

Benefits of Same-Day Crowns
Aside from the obvious convenience of same-day dental crowns, they also offer other advantages that you will not receive with traditional crowns. Since CEREC can be completed in one appointment, this means that you won’t have to wear an uncomfortable temporary crown while you wait for a permanent one to be manufactured. You will spend less time in the dentist’s chair and you won’t need to sit for messy, uncomfortable dental impressions.
What Issues Can CEREC Restore?
For the most part, same-day crowns can treat any issue that traditional crowns can. They are most often used to protect severely decayed teeth, teeth that have just been treated with root canal therapy, or cracked teeth. However, CEREC crowns cannot be used to treat teeth that have fractured below the gumline. During your consultation, we will take x-rays to determine whether a same-day crown is right for you.

Care & Maintenance
Taking Care of Same-Day Crowns
be sore for a few days after your treatment because damaged, decayed material is removed from your tooth before the crown is placed. However, you will still be able to brush the crown along with the rest of your teeth. Brush twice per day, floss once per day, and come back to Will Jones Dentistry for routine visits every six months to ensure that your crown is in optimal condition.
