Streamline Your Dental Care with Same-Day Crowns
Traditional crowns often require a patient to bite into messy putty for an impression and wait several weeks for an outside lab to fabricate their restoration. At Brooklyn Heights Dental® in Brooklyn Heights, NY, we offer digital impressions and convenient same-day crowns made with our in-house CEREC® technology. As a qualified and trusted prosthodontist, Dr. Lisa Reid offers specific expertise in tooth replacement with dental crowns. Depending on your unique needs, she or Dr. Eugene Stanislaus can create a same-day crown to fit over a damaged tooth or dental implant for patients experiencing tooth loss. Your entire care, from treatment to restoration, can all be conveniently completed under our roof.
What Are Same-Day Crowns?
Same-day crowns are dental crowns made from durable, long-lasting ceramic using CEREC technology (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics). This machine uses computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) to fabricate a beautifully customized restoration in a single visit. With the introduction of this technology into the dental industry, doctors can help patients save time and money by completing the entire treatment all in one appointment.

Are You a Candidate?
Same-day crowns offer protection for smiles that have been damaged by:
- Severe tooth decay
- Dental staining or discoloration
- Teeth grinding and jaw clenching
Same-Day Crown Process
During the consultation, Dr. Stanislaus or Dr. Reid will perform a thorough examination using digital x-rays and a 3-D scan of your smile to create a customized treatment plan. He or she will then upload the images to the CEREC machine, where the software will analyze your teeth and create a three-dimensional mold of your smile.
Based on the mold, the CEREC technology will design your customized same-day crown from a single block of ceramic, color-matched to blend with the natural shade of your teeth. The overall fabrication typically takes just one hour. While waiting, the doctor will prepare your tooth for the restoration. Once this is completed, the doctor will check the fit of the restoration, make any necessary changes, and secure it over the damaged tooth or dental implant.
