One Appointment, One Smile: Same-Day Crowns

Have a chipped tooth? Don't wait weeks for a perfect smile! Northwest Dental in Omaha offers same-day crowns, a revolutionary technology that lets you walk in with a damaged tooth and walk out with a beautiful, natural-looking crown—all in one appointment. This blog will explore the benefits of same-day crowns and why Northwest Dental might be the perfect choice for getting your smile back on track quickly and conveniently.


What Are Same-Day Crowns?

Gone are the days of multiple appointments, temporary crowns, and weeks of waiting.  CEREC® technology allows Dr. Wachholtz to create and place a beautiful, custom-made crown for your tooth in just one visit. CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. CEREC is an innovative system that creates dental crowns directly in our dental office using 3D imaging technology and an in-office milling machine. The crowns are of the highest quality and are made of porcelain or composite resin. Unlike traditional crowns, CEREC same-day crowns are made on-site and can be fitted same-day.

How Does CEREC Work? 

After an exam and consultation at Northwest Dental in Omaha, NE, tooth restoration can be quickly done using CEREC. In addition to creating a beautiful smile, the crown provides much-needed support in everyday activities like eating, chewing, and speaking. Getting a new crown or a crown replacement is easy:


  • The tooth or multiple teeth are prepared, and we take a digital 3D scan.


  • Our CEREC Sirona milling machine receives the scan and creates a unique crown for you (customized in size, shape, and color).


  • Your custom crown is placed and checked for a proper bite and fit. Your new tooth replacement is now ready to use!


Same-Day Crowns Are a Perfect Option For Patients Who:

  • Have a cracked, chipped, or broken tooth

  • Need a crown to protect a tooth with extensive decay

  • Desire a cosmetic improvement to their smile

  • Dislike temporary crowns due to being uncomfortable, bulky, and prone to falling out

  • Experience dental anxiety. Fewer dental visits can be a significant benefit for those who experience anxiety in the dentist's chair

  • Those seeking a natural look. Modern CEREC crowns are made from natural-looking ceramic, providing a beautiful and seamless restoration that blends perfectly with your existing teeth


What Are the Advantages Of Same-Day Crowns?

  • Convenience: The biggest perk is the single-visit experience. Patients can walk in with a damaged tooth and leave with a beautiful, restored crown in one day. This eliminates the need for multiple appointments, saving them time and hassle.

  • Reduced Anxiety: Fewer appointments mean less dental chair time, which can be a major benefit for patients who experience dental anxiety.

  • Improved Comfort: No more wearing uncomfortable temporary crowns that can be bulky, sensitive, and prone to falling out. The digital scans also eliminate the need for uncomfortable and potentially messy traditional impressions with dental putty.

  • Precise Fit: Digital scans ensure a highly accurate and customized crown for your tooth.

  • Natural Aesthetics: CEREC crowns are made from natural-looking ceramic, providing a seamless and beautiful restoration that blends with your existing teeth.

  • Durability: These crowns are built from strong, long-lasting materials, offering a reliable solution for your damaged tooth. 

  • Faster Recovery: With same-day crowns, patients can return to their regular routine quicker without worrying about damaging a temporary crown.

  • Efficiency & Accuracy: CEREC technology allows Dr. Wachholtz to streamline the creation of crowns. This allows for more control over the entire process, from design to placement, ensuring a precise and customized fit for each patient.
