Same-Day Crowns

Traditional crowns require two separate appointments and the procedure can take days or weeks to complete.

Thanks to CEREC® technology, patients can now walk into our office and leave with their new custom dental crown on the same day.

Dr. Brian K. Tavoian is proud to offer same-day crowns at our office in Cedar City, UT.

How Do I Know If I Need a Dental Crown?

Dr. Tavoian may recommend a same-day crown for a variety of reasons. Dental crowns are a highly effective treatment for dental conditions such as:

  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Advanced tooth decay or tooth damage
  • Worn teeth
  • An uneven bite
  • Recently undergone root canal therapy
  • A structurally weak tooth

Is a Crown My Only Option?

It is important to understand that we will always recommend the most conservative treatment possible. For example, if you have just a small cavity, we can likely restore your tooth with a minimally invasive filling. However, in cases of more extensive damage, a dental crown can provide much better support and protection. 

Don't Delay Your Dental Check-up Timely Treatment Will Lead to a Better Outcome

The longer you avoid a check-up, the more likely your dental condition will get worse. Waiting too long for help can even result in tooth loss. You only get one set of permanent teeth. Putting off treatment is simply not worth the risk. 

With CEREC technology, anyone can make the time for dental crown treatment. Meanwhile, our office accepts insurance and CareCredit® financing, making the procedure affordable on virtually any budget. Now, there is nothing standing in the way of you and a healthy smile.  Contact our Cedar City dental practice now to schedule an appointment. You can reach our office by calling:

What Makes Same-Day Crowns So Amazing?

A Closer Look at CEREC Technology

CEREC is a state-of-the-art design and manufacturing system. Historically, crowns and other dental restorations were only made at off-site dental labs. Now we have the same capabilities right here at our Cedar City office. The CEREC system uses CAD/CAM technology (computer-assisted design and computer-assisted manufacturing)  to streamline every step of treatment. After capturing precise 3D scans of your teeth, your dentist can design your crown before your very eyes at the chairside computer. The designs are then sent to our in-office milling machine to immediately begin production. The milling machine works at an incredible rate, completing your custom crown in less than an hour. 

A Look at the Procedure

Learn more about what to expect during same-day crown treatment at our Cedar City dental practice:


To ensure your complete comfort throughout treatment, your dentist will administer local anesthesia that will keep your teeth and gums numb. If you are an especially anxious patient, we can provide sedation

Tooth Prep

Before we place a dental crown, it is important to address the underlying health issue compromising your tooth. We will remove decayed portions of the enamel and thoroughly sterilize your teeth.  Next, we reshape the outer layer of the tooth to make room for the crown. 

Digital Impressions

Once your tooth is prepared for the crown, your dentist will take digital impressions with our intraoral camera. The CEREC software sends the design information to the in-house milling unit to begin production.


The milling device carves your crown from a solid block of porcelain ceramic that is color-matched to your natural teeth. The process usually takes one hour to complete.


When the permanent crown is ready, Dr. Tavoian will check and make sure the fit and appearance are up to our high standards. Once he is satisfied, he will attach the crown to the tooth and polish the outer layer. Suddenly, you've gone from having a compromised smile to having a fully restored smile—in a single day!

Considerations Before Getting a CEREC Crown

While CEREC restorations are undoubtedly the most convenient and efficient option, some patients may be better served with a traditional crown. If you are restoring a highly visible front tooth, a customized lab-made crown may look more realistic. Lab technicians use special hand-layering techniques that add dimension and authenticity to the appearance.  During your consultation at our Cedar City office, Dr. Tavoian will explain all your crown options and answer your questions. Our goal is to help you make an informed decision about treatment and ensure you are satisfied with the results.
