What Are Same-Day Dental Crowns?
Sometimes called chair-side crowns, same-day dental crowns are natural-looking restorative caps made and applied in just one sitting, eliminating the need for multiple appointments.

Advantages of a Same-Day Crown?

What to Expect
The procedure for a same-day dental crown is essentially the same as a traditional crown, but without the waiting. It only takes 1 office visit to repair your tooth and place the crown.
No trays of goopy, messy impression material, Digital Scanning is much more comfortable, doesn’t trigger the gag reflex, and is much faster to perform. Instead of using putty to make a physical impression of your teeth and a temporary crown, Dr. Palmieri takes a 3D digital scan and uses a CAD–CAM machine to fabricate a highly customized crown in just minutes.
You will receive your precisely milled, custom-made crown the same day, reducing the amount of time you may miss from work or with family and friends.
Is a Dental Crown Painful?
With local anesthetic, a dental crown procedure is virtually painless. Our office also offers amenities to control anxiety, such as noise-reducing headphones, Netflix, and warm blankets to make the experience as comfortable as possible. You may experience minor discomfort in the hours after the anesthesia wears off, but it should resolve within a day or two.
