What Is One-Day Dentistry?

At Southwest Smiles, we understand you don’t have time to make multiple dentist appointments for a crown, and temporary crowns are not only inconvenient, but sometimes they break or fall out before your next appointment. This is why we are proud to offer CEREC® one-visit dental crowns. With CEREC’s advanced technology, we can create a custom-designed crown just for you during a single dental appointment!

Same-Day Dental Crowns

CEREC stands for Chairside Economic Restorations of Esthetic Ceramics. In our office, our CEREC machine creates a dental crown using precise measurements to create a perfectly natural-looking crown to replace your tooth. Instead of waiting with an uncomfortable temporary for days or sometimes weeks, you can have your tooth restored in just a single visit.

Do I Need a Dental Crown?

Sometimes a filling is too large for a patient to maintain proper bite, or a fracture has damaged a tooth to the point of needing the coverage of a dental crown. In the past, patients would get a plastic temporary after impressions were made of their old tooth, and then they would wait several days or weeks for their permanent crown to be made in an off-site lab. Finally, the crown would be placed and fitted. If the fit wasn’t right, they’d have to return.

With accurate 3D imaging, we are now able to take a precise measurement of the old tooth so the new crown matches the fit of your former tooth! Plus, we don’t need to take messy impressions with CEREC. The results are so natural-looking, no one will even notice you have a crown instead of a natural tooth! In just one day, we will have you smiling again.
