New advancements in prosthodontics have made it possible for dentists to offer crowns in a single sitting.
Same-day dental crowns in India cost 70-80% less than the price in the USA. In Addition to this, our partner dental hospital in Chandigarh India offer “one-day crowns” at the same cost as traditional crowns.

Same-Day Crowns Cost in India
The cost of same-day crowns in India (CAD-CAM CEREC) is approximately $280 as compared to $3,000 in the US. The technology of the crowns milled in the US is the same that is available in India.
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. The entire process of crown fixation including tooth cutting is completed in about one hour, 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.

How are Chairside Crowns Made?
Step 1: Tooth cutting is done to make space for the cap to be placed.
Step 2: Your dentist will use the CEREC intraoral camera to scan your teeth in order to take a digital impression. You skip putty-like / gooey impression pastes to take the impression.
Step 3: The dentist will design your tooth crown on the computer. You can view how your cap will look once it is made.
Step 4: The dentist mills the crown using CAD-CAM software (Computer-Aided Designing, Computer-Aided Manufacturing) and 3-D printing. This step takes about 10-15 minutes.
Step 5: 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 as “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 caused an increased gag reflex.
When to Avoid Same-Day Crown?
If there is a tooth fracture below the gums, traditional crowns may be a better choice. An intraoral camera may not be able to take an accurate impression image below the gum line.
Differences between CEREC & Traditional Caps
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 fabrication of crown which takes 4-5 days. You have to return to your dentist for the placement of the final permanent crown.
Same-day crowns are manufactured on-site and seated immediately to repair a damaged tooth. State-of-the-art CEREC technology allows the dentist to fabricate the crown on the premises and seat it within a matter of hours. Same-day dentistry is possible with CAD-CAM software.
