Same-Day Dental Crowns in Laguna Hills, CA
Fix Your Smile in One Short Visit
If you need a dental crown but can't spare the hours for multiple dentist visits, the solution lies in same-day dental crowns from Löberg Dental Center in Laguna Hills, CA. Also referred to as one-day crowns or one-visit crowns, these cutting-edge dental restorations use advanced dental technology, allowing Dr. Leif Löberg to complete the procedure in a single appointment.
What Are Same-Day Dental Crowns?
Same-day dental crowns are a revolutionary approach to dental restorations. Unlike their traditional counterparts, which require multiple visits to the dentist, same-day crowns are created and placed in just one appointment with our advanced technology. These crowns repair damaged or decayed teeth, offering functionality and a natural appearance.
Benefits of Same-Day Dental Crowns
Same-day dental crowns offer a range of advantages:
- Efficiency: With same-day crowns, you can undergo the entire tooth repair process in a single appointment, making it convenient for individuals with busy schedules.
- Comfort: Advanced technology ensures a precise fit and a comfortable bite, minimizing discomfort during and after the procedure.
- Natural Appearance: Crafted from durable materials like porcelain or ceramic, same-day crowns can be customized to match the color and shape of your natural teeth.
- No Mercury: Same-day crowns don’t use mercury, so you won’t have to worry about teeth staining or toxicity.
- Improved Functionality: By addressing issues with damaged or weakened teeth, same-day crowns help restore the function of your smile, enhancing your ability to chew and speak.
Candidacy for Same-Day Dental Crowns
Determining whether you’re a suitable candidate for same-day dental crowns is a crucial step in your journey to a healthier and more radiant smile. Here's what you need to know about candidacy for same-day dental crowns:
- Cavities: If you have cavities in your teeth, same-day crowns can effectively restore their health and appearance.
- Severely Damaged Teeth: Teeth that have sustained significant damage due to trauma or decay can often be candidates for same-day crowns.
- Teeth Requiring Root Canal Therapy: After a root canal procedure, a dental crown is often recommended to protect and strengthen the treated tooth.
- Weakened Teeth: Teeth that have become weak due to wear and tear, grinding, or other factors may benefit from the support and protection provided by same-day dental crowns.
How Do Same-Day Dental Crowns Work?
During your initial visit, Dr. Löberg will examine your teeth and discuss treatment options. If you are a candidate for same-day dental crowns, he will explain the procedure and answer any questions you may have.
Dr. Löberg will begin by removing any decayed or damaged material from the tooth receiving the crown. He will shape the tooth to accommodate the dental crown and take precise impressions of the tooth and surrounding teeth. In the meantime, you'll wear a temporary crown. Temporary crowns ensure you have teeth while you wait for your permanent crown.
Design and Fabrication
With advanced technology, including computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), your custom crown is meticulously designed and crafted. This ensures a comfortable fit and seamless integration with your natural smile.
Once the same-day dental crown is ready, Dr. Löberg will carefully position it on the prepared tooth. He will make necessary adjustments to ensure a precise fit and a perfectly aligned bite.

Caring for Same-Day Dental Crowns
Once you've received your same-day dental crowns, proper care is essential to ensure their longevity and maintain your radiant smile. Here are some essential tips for caring for your same-day dental crowns:
- Maintain Excellent Oral Hygiene: Continue to brush and floss your teeth regularly. Pay extra attention to the area around your crowns to prevent plaque buildup and potential gum issues.
- Regular Dental Check-ups: Visit your dentist for routine check-ups and professional cleanings. Your dentist will assess the condition of your crowns and address any concerns.
- Avoid Chewing on Hard Objects: Refrain from biting objects like ice, pen caps, or fingernails, as this can damage your crowns or natural teeth.
- Protect Against Teeth Grinding (Bruxism): If you grind your teeth at night, consider wearing a nightguard. Grinding can put excess pressure on your crowns and lead to premature wear.
- Limit Staining Substances: Be mindful of foods and beverages that can stain your teeth, as these can also affect the color of your crowns. If possible, minimize consumption or rinse your mouth after consumption.
