Same Day Crowns Mira Mesa

At San Diego Smile Center, we understand that time is valuable, and multiple dental visits for crown placements can be inconvenient. That’s why we offer Same Day Crowns, a revolutionary dental technology that allows us to create and place high-quality dental crowns in just one appointment. Say goodbye to waiting and hello to a beautiful smile in a single day!

What are Same Day Crowns?

Dental crowns are custom-made restorations that cover and protect damaged or weakened teeth, restoring their strength and appearance. Crowns are a versatile solution for various dental issues, such as cracked teeth, large cavities, or teeth with substantial fillings.

At San Diego Smile Center, we utilize CEREC technology to create Same Day Crowns. CEREC is an innovative computer-aided design and manufacturing system that allows us to design, fabricate, and place dental crowns in a single appointment.

Benefits of Same Day Crowns

Time-saving and convenient for patients

With traditional crown procedures, patients often need to visit the dental office multiple times, resulting in prolonged treatment periods. Same Day Crowns eliminate the need for multiple visits, saving you valuable time and reducing any inconvenience.

No need for temporary crowns

Traditional crown procedures usually involve placing temporary crowns while waiting for the permanent ones to be manufactured in a dental laboratory, approximately up to 3 weeks! Same Day Crowns eliminate the need for temporary crowns, providing you with a more streamlined and comfortable experience.

Single visit solution

With CEREC technology, we can complete the entire crown procedure in a single visit. You can walk into our office with a dental issue and leave with a fully restored, natural-looking tooth—all in the same day!

High-quality and natural-looking results

Same Day Crowns at San Diego Smile Center are crafted with precision and high-quality materials, ensuring durable and aesthetically pleasing results. The crowns blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, enhancing your smile’s appearance and functionality.

Step-by-step process of getting a Same Day Crown

Digital impressions and imaging

To begin the procedure, we use digital impressions and imaging technology to create a 3D model of your teeth. This eliminates the need for messy traditional impressions, providing us with accurate and detailed information for designing your custom crown.

In-house crown design and fabrication with CEREC

Our skilled dental team, led by Dr. Paulo Cortes, utilizes CEREC software to design your dental crown based on the digital impressions. With CEREC’s advanced capabilities, we can create a crown that fits perfectly with your natural teeth, ensuring optimal comfort and functionality.

Precise and custom fit adjustments

Once the crown design is ready, we use CEREC’s milling unit to fabricate the crown from high-quality dental materials. If necessary, we can make real-time adjustments to ensure the perfect fit, shape, and color match of the crown.

Immediate placement of the permanent crown

After the crown is precisely crafted, Dr. Paulo Cortes will place the permanent crown over your prepared tooth. Thanks to CEREC’s cutting-edge technology, you can enjoy the benefits of a fully restored smile on the same day, without the need for temporary crowns.
