In the Orlando, FL-area, Alafaya Family Dentistry is the leading dental practice providing this convenient service.

These crowns can restore teeth following treatment for damage and decay, returning comfort to your bite and aesthetic appeal to your smile.

What Are Same-day Crowns?
Same-day crowns are identical in quality and function to traditional crowns. They are tooth-shaped caps that are specifically designed to cover a compromised tooth. Crowns are recommended when weak or broken teeth need protection, when a dental bridge needs to be held in place, or for cosmetic reasons.
These natural-looking crowns help restore the appearance of your tooth to its original shape and size, and strengthen the tooth to eliminate pain and sensitivity. Unlike traditional crowns, this same-day alternative will take only a couple of hours, saving you the inconvenience of multiple trips to our office.
What Are the Benefits?
Traditional crowns can take two weeks or longer to produce, depending upon whether a dentist has an in-house lab or works with an offsite partner. But with same-day crowns, you will avoid spending two or three weeks wearing a temporary crown, saving you time and money. These issues can be avoided with same-day crowns, helping to ensure total comfort and satisfaction faster than ever before.
In addition to being a faster solution, same-day crowns can be a more conservative option than traditional crowns. In some cases, same-day crowns require less alteration of your tooth in order to accommodate the restoration.
At Alafaya Family Dentistry, the entire process of creating your crown is completed on-site. The color and shape of your crown will be matched to your teeth, restoring a complete and healthy look to your smile, in addition to proper balance between the jaws. The results are long-lasting and very precise, so our patients experience few complications, if any, during or after the procedure.
The Same-day Crowns Procedure
We will use infrared imaging and CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) technology incorporating a state-of-the-art milling machine to precisely craft your crown in a single visit.
We first obtain a complete digital image of your tooth. This eliminates the discomfort and mess often associated with traditional dental impressions, and allows us to quickly transfer the image to the CAD/CAM machine, which will create your custom crown while you wait.
During the design process, we invite you to relax in our comfortable office, complete with headphones and flat screen televisions. Once your new crown is ready, we place it on your tooth and ensure that it fits properly. Adjustments are made at this time, if necessary. We will then bond the new crown to the surface of your tooth and polish it. Within the span of a single visit, you can leave our office with a completely restored smile.
