Same Day Crowns Q & A

What are same-day crowns?

Same-day crowns are customized caps that fit over treated teeth and can be implemented without waiting for a lab to create them. Dental crowns blend into your natural teeth effortlessly and are indistinguishable from preexisting teeth. 

Dental crowns cover, protect, and restore the shape of your teeth in the event of tooth damage. They also come in a variety of types to best support your needs.

Why would I need same-day crowns?

Life can be hectic, and scheduling multiple follow-up treatment appointments may be cumbersome. Same-day crowns offer an effective solution in a single appointment.  They can:

  • Protect a weak tooth from breaking
  • Covera tooth with a filling
  • Restore shape
  • Cover discolored and misshapen teeth
  • Cover a newly placed dental implant or tooth treated with a root canal

What materials are same-day crowns made of?

Crowns are made of several different types of materials. Some of the most common materials used include:


Crowns made with metal can incorporate gold, nickel, chromium, and palladium. Metal crowns tend to last the longest and can withstand a lot of pressure and movement within the mouth. This also means they’re less susceptible to chipping and cracking than crowns made from other materials.

Porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM)

This type of crown blends in more naturally with your teeth. However, sometimes metal shows through the porcelain components. Porcelain is less sturdy than metal, but since metal is still present, it offers a lot of structure and stability. This option is great for any tooth type.


Resin offers a more affordable option while still aiding in the appearance and structure of your jaw. They also blend in better with surrounding teeth since there is no presence of metal.

Porcelain or ceramic

Like resin crown composites, porcelain, and ceramic options provide the most seamless and natural finish for your same-day crown treatment. Additionally, they’re an exceptional choice for treating front teeth. 

What can I expect when I receive same-day crowns?

First, your dentist removes any sign of damage or decay and reshapes your tooth to best fit the crown. AB Dental & Oral Surgery uses computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) to scan your teeth and immediately create customized crowns in the office.
