Same Day Crowns Eugene, OR
Quest Dental is proud to offer same day crowns in Eugene, OR. Same day crowns represent a new generation of dental technology. It allows patients to receive a crown procedure without needing to make multiple visits.
What is dental implants
This specialized procedure utilizes a combination of advanced 3D printing and computer-aided design (CAD) technology. It enables dentists to create custom-fitted crowns that fit perfectly – in one appointment. The entire process usually takes about two hours.
It starts with the digital scanning and modeling of the teeth so that the crown can be tailored to fit your individual needs. This eliminates the need for goopy impression material entirely! This scan also serves as a basis for creating an accurate 3D design and model of the surrounding teeth and the new crown. That design is then sent to our in house mill where the crown is milled from a ceramic block with incredible accuracy. This ceramic material is designed specifically for dental use.
Same day crowns offer cosmetic improvements, oral health benefits, and immediate stabilization for damaged or decaying teeth — all within the same day!
Benefits of same day crowns
Without the need for multiple appointments that would occur with traditional crowns, same day crowns make the process of restoring damaged teeth simple and available to many people who were previously unable to access this technology.
Same day crowns save time not just in appointment scheduling, but also when it comes to healing; they are installed during one appointment session and fully functional within minutes of being placed – much quicker than conventional crowns!
This method of restoration is also durable and aesthetically pleasing. Benefits include time saving convenience and comfort.
Comparison with traditional crowns
While traditional crowns still have their place in dentistry, same day crowns eliminate the need for multiple trips over several weeks. Same day crowns are created on-site out of ceramic material. The ability to create an ultra-precise fit saves time, is more comfortable for the patient, and helps make sure your bite is even and functioning correctly.
The design phase is now directly in the hands of your dentist and our team, not with a lab technician off-site. Having this high level of control over the entire restorative process has greatly improved health outcomes for our patients compared to when we used labs exclusively in the past. We’re able to deliver better work, faster for our patients.

Common questions and answers about same day crowns
Yes. Same day crowns are designed to be just as durable and long-lasting as traditional crowns.
Same day crowns are typically made from either zirconium oxide or lithium disilicate. Both materials are incredibly strong and tooth-colored, so they look very natural. In fact we also have the ability to really fine-tune the shade matching process through a high-end stain-and-glaze process when the situation calls for it, like when restoring front teeth with crowns.
From start to finish a single crown visit usually takes about two hours. That includes getting a tooth numb and prepared for the crown, scanning the teeth near the site (which replaces the need to take molds of the teeth), designing the new crown, manufacturing the crown, and delivering the finished tooth-colored crown. It’s become a really simple process for our patients to have completed.
It depends on your insurance policy. If your insurance plan provides a benefit for traditional crowns, it will most likely provide that same benefit for a same day crown. We’ll happily help you check the ins and outs of your indiCheck with your provider to see if same day crowns are covered.
