Same-day crowns, also known as CEREC® crowns, are a type of dental restoration that can be made in a single visit to our Chicago dental office. Traditional crowns require multiple visits to the dentist and can take several weeks to be made at a dental laboratory, but same-day crowns are made using advanced computer-aided design and manufacturing technology. This allows Dr. Flak to create the crown in-office, and you can leave the same day with a fully restored tooth.
Same-day crowns are made from high-quality ceramic materials that are designed to match the color of your natural teeth. This makes them an ideal solution for restoring teeth that are damaged or decayed, and they provide a natural-looking result. The ceramic material used in same-day crowns is also highly durable and long lasting, which means that they can provide many years of reliable service.

The process of receiving a same-day crown is relatively quick and straightforward. First, Dr. Flak will prepare the tooth by removing any damaged or decayed tissue. Then, an impression of the tooth will be taken using a specialized digital scanning device. This impression will be used to create a 3D model of the tooth, which we will use to design the crown.
Once the crown has been designed, it will be sent to our in-office milling machine, which will create the crown from a block of ceramic material. The entire process from start to finish typically takes about an hour, and you will be able to leave our office with a fully restored tooth.
Why choose a same-day crown?
Same-day crowns have many advantages over traditional crowns. In addition to being more convenient and time-efficient, they also provide a more natural-looking result. The ceramic material used in same-day crowns is highly durable and can withstand the forces of chewing and biting, which means that they can provide many years of reliable service.
Overall, same-day crowns are an excellent solution for restoring damaged or decayed teeth. They are quick and convenient, and they provide a natural-looking result that is both durable and long lasting. If you are in need of a dental crown, be sure to ask Dr. Flak at our Chicago dental office if same-day crowns are an option for you.
