Same Day Porcelain Crown

Same day crowns are convenient, esthetic and lost lasting solutions for teeth that need a crown. Traditional crowns required two appointments with the hassle of a temporary crown for a few weeks while the lab creates a crown. With the CAD/CAM system at Springwoods Village Dental these crowns can be made by the doctor in a single visit, saving you the time of having to return for a second appointment and the hassle of having to wear a temporary crown. They are esthetic and have excellent durability and provides you with the peace of mind that the crown is made by the doctor, not a lab technician.

What Types of Crowns Are Available Same Day?

Springwoods Village Dental owns our own in-house CAD/CAM system which allows our patients to have a completed permanent crown in just one office visit. This system requires that a natural tooth-colored porcelain crown is chosen by the patient.
Other types of crowns are available, but will require two office visits, a temporary crown, and lab processing time.
