Dental crowns used to take weeks to place. First there was the initial visit. Then there was a visit for tooth preparation and the creation of a wax mockup. Then there was a third visit for the placement of the crowns – milled off-site by a company that has never seen your actual smile – and the hope that they are shaped, sized, and colored correctly, lest there be a fourth trip for modified crowns.

Same day dental crowns offer a number of practical benefits. In addition to offering an immediate fix for vulnerable teeth, they can save you tremendous amounts of time and money by being completed in-office and during one visit.
With Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or CEramic REConstruction (CEREC) technology, the wait times and multiple appointments required for porcelain dental crowns can often be eliminated. This process was developed at the University of Zurich in 1980.
