What to Expect When You Get a Same-Day Crown

Crowns in Van Nuys CA

When your tooth is damaged or has a particularly large filling that has weakened, a dental crown will save your tooth and enable you to chew normally. Dental crowns are made to look like your natural teeth, and they blend in with them seamlessly.

In the past, getting a crown involved at least two trips to the dentist. First, you would have to go in and get an impression made. This would be sent to the lab where the crowns were fabricated. Your dentist would place a temporary crown on the tooth structure. Then you would have to come back for a second appointment to have the permanent crown placed. The whole process took a couple of weeks.

Now with same-day crown technology, you can get a dental crown in just one visit to the dentist! Talk to your Van Nuys dentist, Dr. Peter Suh, about same-day crown technology.

What can you expect with same-day crown technology? Convenience and quality.

What Is CEREC?

CEREC is an acronym that stands for:

  • Chairside
  • Economical
  • Restoration of
  • Esthetic
  • Ceramic

With CEREC, we can scan your tooth digitally—forget about the old-fashioned goopy impressions we used to have to make—and the machine creates a perfectly fitting crown while you wait.

Are Same-Day Crowns High-Quality Crowns?

Yes! CEREC crowns are high-quality ceramic crowns that look beautifully natural.

CEREC crowns are also free of metal. If you have an old dental crown, you have probably noticed that there is a line of metal around the bottom of your restoration. This line will not form with a ceramic CEREC dental crown.
