Same day Crowns

Crowns and Veneers are designed with CAD software and completed the same day

Digital intra-oral scanners, as well as stand-alone and complete computer-assisted design(CAD)/computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) equipment are powerful and efficient tools in the dental practice of Dr Emil Jansen.
They eliminate the need for traditional analog impressions and wax-ups, as well as the conventional hands-on fabrication processes associated with all-ceramic restorations.
As a result, in one digitally centered workflow that could be implemented, impressions are taken with an intra-oral scanner, not conventional materials and trays.
Computer software is used to digitize, analyze and manipulate the scanned images, instead of pouring models.
Restorations are designed with CAD software, not by hand-waxing models, after which they are milled through a CAM process, rather than by pressing and/or layering.
Unlike removable devices such as dentures, which you can take out and clean daily, crowns and bridges are cemented onto existing teeth or implants, and can only be removed by a dentist. A crown is used to entirely cover or "cap" a damaged tooth.
A crown is a cap used to restore a tooth to its original appearance and prevent further damage or decay.
A bridge, unlike a crown, utilizes existing teeth to fill in an area left vacant by a missing tooth.
It has always been the goal of dentistry to try to preserve natural teeth.
Today, people are keeping their teeth longer and it is expected that, finances permitting, decayed teeth will be restored rather than removed.
However, when teeth are lost, they should be replaced in order to maintain good dental function (bite) and oral health.
With dental implants becoming the gold standard for tooth replacement systems, more people are electing not to have bridgework — formerly the treatment of choice compared to removable dentures.
Yet crowns and bridges may still be the best alternative for many people in certain situations.

Same Day Crowns...


If you are considering getting a crown, implant crown or veneer, you might have heard about same-day crowns.
Same day crowns and veneers are made possible by a 3D scanner, digital software - CAD/CAM _and a digital laboratory that uses a 3D printer for the models, as well as a milling machine.
CAD stands for computer aided designing and CAM stands for computer aided manufacturing.
The system combines a milling machine, CAD/CAM programs and 3D imaging which allows Dr Jansen to create dental restorations within hours in his practice.


What is the process of getting a same-day crown?


If your dental examination showed that you will need a crown, Dr Emil will discuss the option of same-day crowns with you.
This means you will only have to come in for a single appointment and a few hours later to have the crown placed


We have listed the steps of an appointment for a same day crown or veneer below:


  1. Impression Scan
    Instead of using impression material and a tray that usually gets inserted into your mouth to take an impression of your upper and lower jaw. At our practice we use the 3Shape intra-oral scanner. This scanner provides us with precise 3D images of your teeth in their natural colour.
  2. Crown Design
    The 3D scan is sent by email to our in-house Dental Laboratory. With CAD/CAM software, the Dental Lab Technician will analyse the scan of your mouth and digitally generate the restoration proposal.
  3. Crown Production
    The software submits your crown design to the in-house milling machine which mills and grinds a solid zirconia- or Emax blank to cut the unique crown that was designed for you.
  4. Finishing & Insertion
    We will insert your crown and you will walk out of the practice with your newly placed restoration.
