What Are Same-day Dental Crowns?

Same day dental crowns, also known as CEREC® crowns or Chairside crowns, are created at your dental office in just 2 hours. [1]

These metal-free crowns are made using in-house CAD/CAM software (Computer-Aided Designing, Computer-Aided Manufacturing).

If your dentist uses a CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics or CEramic REConstruction), same day dentistry may be a treatment option for you.

The CEREC system makes crown work easier, faster, and less expensive. [2]

The CEREC crowns are comparable to PFM crowns, with a success rate of  95%. [3]

Same-Day Crowns Cost in India

The cost of same-day crowns in India (CAD-CAM CEREC) starts at $60 compared to $1,800 & $2,000 in the US and Australia, respectively.

India’s cost is considerably less than popular dental tourist destinations like Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia.

You can expect to pay $515 in Thailand for same-day crowns and almost six times lower than in Vietnam and Cambodia.

CEREC Crown Cost Comparison – India vs. Other Countries

The next question that comes to mind is, “How long does a same-day crown take?” With CEREC same-day crowns, your tooth cap is milled in about 15 minutes. [4]

The entire process of crown fixation, including tooth cutting, is completed in about one hour. [5] Therefore, these are popularly called “Crown in an hour.”

Whereas a traditional crown fabrication requires two or more visits and at least a 5-7 days gap between appointments.

Thus, be assured that the quality of same-day crowns you receive in India is the same as the quality of the CAD-CAM crowns in the US.

This also means that you can get post treatment care for your crowns in your home country.

How Are Chairside Crowns Made?

Tooth cutting is done to make space for the cap to be placed.

Your dentist will use the CEREC intraoral camera to scan your teeth to take a digital impression. You skip putty-like / gooey impression pastes to take the impression.

The dentist will design your tooth crown on the computer. You can view how your cap will look once it is made.

The dentist mills the crown using CAD-CAM software and 3-D printing. This step takes about 10-15 minutes.

The same-day chairside milled crown is cemented on the tooth.

Advantages of Single-visit Crown in India

Dental crowns in one appointment” can be a lifesaver for someone with a busy schedule.

  1. Saves time: You can get a tooth-colored CEREC crown in India in a single visit. There is no second appointment and no wait time between appointments.
  2. Saves money: You save on appointment costs and the cost of a resin-temporary crown. Also, it means less time off work.
  3. Convenience: CEREC crowns utilize a camera the size of a pen to take the image of the cut tooth.

These are termed “Digital dental impressions or 3-D intraoral scanning.

These avoid the need for the messy impression paste used in the case of traditional crowns, which causes an increased gag reflex.

When to Avoid Same-Day Crown?

If there is a tooth fracture below the gums, traditional crowns may be better.

An intraoral camera may not be able to take an accurate impression image below the gum line. [9]

CEREC Crowns Vs. Traditional Dental Crowns: Which Is Better?

The traditional dental crown procedure requires at least two appointments with the dentist, and it usually takes at least a week to restore damaged teeth.

The dentist sends your impressions to the dental lab for crown fabrication, which takes 4-5 days.

You have to return to your dentist to place the final permanent crown.

Same-day crowns are manufactured on-site and placed immediately to repair a damaged tooth.

State-of-the-art CEREC technology allows the dentist to fabricate the crown on the premises and place it within hours. [10]

Same-day dentistry is possible with CAD-CAM software. [11]
