Same Day Crowns and Root Canals in San Diego

For the best CEREC Same Day Crowns in the San Diego area, look no further than the dental experts at A Shop for Smiles – Richard Hagstrom, DDS. Located within just 20 minutes of downtown San Diego, we offer a unique experience for anyone needing new crowns or crown replacement.

What are CEREC Crowns?

CEREC is an abbreviation of Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. It’s no wonder the manufacturers went with the acronym! However, the full name really says it all. The work is done while you wait in the chair, the cost is a lot lower than you might expect and the end result is a beautiful ceramic crown that looks and feels just like a natural tooth.

The CEREC Same Day Difference

With a traditional crown replacement, you typically have to make multiple appointments. Crowns are usually placed following another procedure such as a root canal. After the oral surgery, you would have had to wear temporary crowns for several days. Only then could the permanent crown be fitted and placed. With CEREC, you don’t have to make multiple appointments to the dentist, as procedure can usually be completed in one day.

CEREC Same Day Crowns

With CEREC same day crowns, you still get a beautiful, functional smile that you can be proud of, but without the waiting and uncomfortable downtime. We pride ourselves on making your crown replacement comfortable and fast. Our CEREC crowns procedure is same day. Based on a photograph of your teeth, we will create the porcelain crown in about 20 minutes. This makes the CEREC same day crowns one of the fastest and effective ways to replace a crown, in as comfortable way as possible.

Sedation Dentistry is Available

If you are the type person that is squeamish when it comes to going to the dentist, we’ve got you covered. With our root canal services, sedation is possible for your procedure. When you’re waiting for your crown, you can either remain sedated or simply relax in one of our comfortable clinic chairs. When setting up your appointment, ask about our sedation dentistry options to make your visit go as smoothly as possible.

Finding the Perfect Fit

When we’ve created the perfect porcelain crown, we’ll place it and make any adjustments necessary to give you the perfect fit. This process is where our expert dentist, Dr. Hagstrom, really shines. He won’t be satisfied with his work until every edge is smooth and the new crown fits perfectly with adjacent teeth. Your bite will feel normal and comfortable, you will be able to enjoy your complete smile right away, and you will have a dependable crown that could last a lifetime.
