Same-Day Crowns

Same-day crowns, or CEREC crowns, are revolutionary dental restorations designed by employing CAD/CAM technology, which allows for these custom crowns to be created on-site by our dentist in Austin, TX, within a single dental visit. A virtual model is designed using digital impressions and then milled from ceramic material, ensuring precise fit and aesthetics. This expedited process eliminates the need for multiple appointments and temporary restorations, offering immediate restoration of damaged teeth with minimal disruption to patients' schedules.  

Same-day crowns provide convenience, efficiency, and precision, restoring function and aesthetics while reducing chair time and patient discomfort associated with traditional crown procedures. With same-day crowns, patients experience restored confidence in their smiles and enhanced oral health, all in a streamlined and expedited manner, setting a new standard for dental restoration in the modern age.

Same-Day Crowns vs. Traditional Dental Crowns 

Same-day and traditional dental crowns represent two distinct approaches to dental restoration, each with its own advantages and considerations. Same-day crowns, also known as CEREC crowns, offer the convenience of receiving a custom-designed crown in a single dental visit, thanks to advanced CAD/CAM technology. This streamlined process eliminates the need for multiple appointments and temporary restorations, saving patients valuable time and minimizing disruptions to their schedules. Additionally, same-day crowns immediately restore damaged or decayed teeth, allowing patients to enjoy restored function and aesthetics without delay.

In contrast, traditional dental crowns typically require multiple appointments and temporary restorations, while the permanent crown is fabricated in a dental laboratory. While traditional crowns may offer the advantage of customization by skilled dental technicians and access to a wider range of materials, such as gold or porcelain-fused-to-metal, they can be more time-consuming and may require additional visits to the dentist. Additionally, receiving traditional crowns may entail longer wait times between appointments, potentially prolonging patient discomfort or inconvenience.  

Ultimately, the choice between same-day crowns and traditional dental crowns depends on patient preference, treatment needs, and clinical considerations. While same-day crowns offer immediate restoration and convenience, traditional crowns may provide greater customization options and access to a wider range of materials. By discussing the options with their dentist and considering their individual needs and preferences, patients can make an informed decision that aligns with their goals for dental restoration and long-term oral health. 

The Procedure for Same-Day Crowns 

Digital Impressions 

The process begins with digital impressions of the patient's teeth captured using a handheld intraoral scanner. This state-of-the-art technology allows for the creation of highly detailed, three-dimensional images of the teeth and surrounding structures, providing the dentist with a precise blueprint for the design and fabrication of the dental crown.  

Virtual Design 

Once the digital impressions are captured, the dentist utilizes specialized software to create a virtual model of the dental crown. Using these digital images, our dentist at Jester Village Dental can customize the crown's shape, size, and color to ensure a perfect fit and optimal aesthetics. This virtual design phase allows meticulous planning and customization, ensuring the final restoration meets the patient's needs and preferences. 

Milling Process 

With the design finalized, the digital data is transferred to an in-office milling machine, which fabricates the dental crown from a solid block of ceramic material. Using advanced CAD/CAM technology, the milling machine precisely sculpts the crown to match the specifications outlined in the virtual design. This automated milling process ensures exceptional accuracy and consistency, resulting in a crown that fits seamlessly and functions flawlessly. 

Finishing Touches 

Once the crown is milled, it undergoes a series of finishing touches to ensure its quality and longevity. The dentist carefully examines the crown for imperfections and makes necessary adjustments to ensure a perfect fit. The crown is then polished to smooth out any rough edges and enhance its appearance, resulting in a restoration indistinguishable from natural teeth in both look and feel. 


With the crown fabricated and prepared for placement, the final step is to bond it to the prepared tooth. The dentist carefully affixes the crown to the tooth using dental cement, ensuring a secure and long-lasting restoration. With the crown in place, the patient can enjoy restored function, aesthetics, and confidence in their smile, all in a single visit to the dentist. Contact us today to learn more!  !
