Dental crowns are fixed “caps” that cover your teeth to restore strength and beauty. We generally recommend crowns when a tooth is too damaged or decayed to be treated with bonding or composite fillings. Similarly, we can use a dental crown to preserve a tooth after root canal therapy or to restore a permanent dental implant, and can complete the procedure all in one visit.
If you’ve lost a tooth but aren’t ready to commit to a dental implant, a dental bridge is your next best option. Dental bridges are a series of dental crowns that span the gap left after a tooth is lost or extracted. To ensure a comfortable and seamless fit, we take impressions of the area, 3D print them in-house, and then complete the procedure all on the same day so you don’t have to return for multiple visits.
What are the benefits of same-day crowns?
Same-day crowns for teeth are the most convenient option. You won’t need a temporary crown or have to wait weeks for the permanent one to be returned from the lab. Also, you just have one dentist visit.
Additionally, you will enjoy increased comfort. If you’re concerned about discomfort and crowning teeth, remember that same-day crowns require fewer injections than traditional crowns. In addition, your dentist can create a crown model using a computer scanner instead of the unpleasant impression putty.
You also have a better chance of avoiding future tooth decay. This is because temporary crowns that do not fit well and allow bacteria to enter the tooth more easily are avoided.

How do temporary dental crowns work?
There are a few steps your dentists will follow in putting on a dental crown. Crowns typically begin with taking an impression of your upper and lower dental arches to create a replica of your teeth so a permanent crown will fit securely on the base of the tooth being crowned without letting any bacteria enter underneath the tooth structure.
Most dentists take this impression and send it off to a dental laboratory for the permanent dental crown to be built. To get the impression correct for the permanent dental crown, they must shape the tooth base below it, which could leave your tooth vulnerable in the short period between the impression being made and the permanent dental crown being delivered. Temporary dental crowns are used to ensure your tooth is protected during this period.
