How long does a same-day crown take?

Getting a same-day crown takes between 90 minutes and two hours. But don't worry that you'll be left sitting with your mouth open as most of that time is spent creating your crown or bridge. We welcome you to bring music or read a book or magazine while you wait.

How We Make CEREC Same-Day Crowns

The first step is to remove a layer of tooth enamel to ensure a proper fit for your new crown. Next, we take quick and easy digital impressions to capture a 3-D virtual model of your tooth.

Dr. Despain uses the virtual model to design your new crown or bridge in the software, and specialized 3-D fabrication equipment in our office mills your custom crown.

When it's ready, we check the crown for fit, adjust it as needed, and bond it securely to the tooth. You can chew on the tooth comfortably again and, with proper care, your CEREC crown can last 20 years or longer.
