Same-Day Dental Crowns
in Durham

CEREC technology makes it happen!

In the past, making a new dental crown would take multiple visits to our office. But now with revolutionary CEREC technology, what used to take days takes just hours. Getting a dental crown in Durham or other restorations has never been easier!

How does it work? With the aid of computer technology, we make a digital scan of your tooth and design a perfectly fitting crown. This digital information is transferred to our in-office CEREC milling machine. This machine can create a precise restoration, custom color matched to your teeth in just minutes. The new crown is then placed.

Why Our Patients Love Same-Day Dentistry

No Temporaries Needed

Because we are able to fabricate your permanent crown right away in our office, there is no longer any need to wear a temporary crown while you wait for your permanent crown to be created in an off-site lab. Also, digital impressions mean no need for messy impressions.


Digital images are highly precise. Our CAD/CAM system creates a very detailed 3D image of your new restoration for our CEREC machine to use as a blueprint. This assures you of the most comfortable and accurate fit possilbe.

Saves you time

Same-day dentistry means less time in the dentist chair for you. No need for numerous office visits. You’ll have more time to spend with your family and doing the things you love to do. Like sharing your beautifully restored smile!

FAQ About Same-Day Dentistry

Find the answers to your questions here.
  • Why would I need a dental crown?

    Dental crowns protect and restore teeth that are decayed, broken, discolored, and chipped or as a cap for a dental implant.

  • How long do same day crowns last?

    Dental crowns can last for up to 15 years or more. The best way to increase the life of your crown is to keep up a good dental hygiene routine of regular brushing and flossing and seeing your dentist for regular check-ups.

    Also, avoid chewing on hard candies, ice or any other hard foods that could chip or break your crown.

  • Will my same-day crown look like one of my own teeth?

    Yes. We use only high-quality ceramic materials that are color matched to your natural teeth. This porcelain is extremely durable and has the luster and shine of natural teeth.

  • Is CEREC technology new?

    Actually, computer-aided design has been around for about 20 years. What is new are the advances in digital technology that make the highly detailed impressions needed for accurate restorations possible. With these precise impressions, we can create restorations that fit better and look better than in the past.
