In most cases, yes.
If a porcelain crown or onlay is the right restoration for you, it is possible to have your crown done the same day. This may save you an extra trip to the dentist, but we will still need at least two and a half hours of your time. Please let our front office know before scheduling for a same-day crown so that time is set aside to complete your procedure.
At our office, we are happy to offer our patients E4D technology, which makes getting a crown easier and more convenient than ever. The E4D crown is made in-office and looks completely natural.
One of the things about the E4D crown that patients appreciate the most is that not only are the crowns made with just one trip to the dentist, but patients can get a crown without the uncomfortable goopy impressions needed for traditional dental crowns. Instead, Dr. Chen will make an optical impression of your tooth using a digital camera. Your crown is digitally designed with the E4D's three-dimensional software.
