What Are Same-Day Dental Crowns?
Same-day dental crowns are restorations that can repair damaged or decayed teeth to restore your smile’s health and function. Unlike traditional dental crowns, Dr. Löberg can plan, create, and place dental crowns in one appointment, eliminating waiting times and getting you the smile you deserve faster. They’re similar to traditional crowns in terms of durability and natural appearance, so you can enjoy the benefits of a reliable restoration in less time.
Benefits of Same-Day Dental Crowns
One-visit crowns are more convenient alternatives to traditional crowns and offer benefits such as:
- Short Procedure Time: With a same-day crown, you can get the tooth repair you need in a single appointment. This can be particularly convenient for busy individuals who have difficulty finding time to visit the dentist.
- Comfort: Same-day crowns are made using advanced technology that allows for a precise fit and comfortable bite. This can help to minimize any discomfort or irritation during and after the treatment.
- Natural Appearance: Same-day crowns are made of durable materials such as porcelain or ceramic, which can be customized to match the color and shape of your natural teeth.
- Improved Bite Function: By repairing damaged or weakened teeth, a same-day crown can help restore the function of your smile and improve your ability to chew and speak.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to get a same-day dental crown?
As their name implies, same-day crowns can be fabricated and placed in one appointment. The entire process takes about 60 to 90 minutes per tooth. Your dentist will provide an estimated treatment timeline at your initial consultation.
Is a same-day dental crown as strong as a traditional crown?
Yes, same-day crowns are as strong and reliable as traditional dental crowns. The only difference is that same-day crowns are made in-office, while traditional crowns are created at an off-site dental lab. Both are durable, natural-looking restorations for damaged and decayed teeth.
Are same-day dental crowns suitable for all patients?
Same-day dental crowns may not be ideal for all patients. Some factors that can impact a patient's eligibility for a same-day crown include the condition of the tooth, the presence of underlying dental problems, and the patient's overall oral health.
For example, if a tooth is severely decayed or damaged, it may not be strong enough to support a crown. In this case, the tooth may need to be extracted or undergo additional treatment before placing a dental crown.
How much do same-day dental crowns cost?
The cost of same-day dental crowns depends on the details of your treatment plan, such as how many dental crowns you need. Your dentist will provide a cost estimate of your dental crown placement at your initial consultation. Same-day crowns typically cost the same as traditional dental crowns.
