Dental crowns are used to protect teeth that have been weakened through trauma, infection, or decay from further damage. They can also be used to secure a dental bridge or as a restoration for dental implants.
Traditionally, the process of planning, creating, and placing dental crowns takes three to four weeks and multiple visits to the dentist. This can make the process seem long and drawn out. What’s more, a temporary restoration must be placed following the preparation of your tooth and the placement of your crown. Temporary crowns are not often ideal matches for your smile and can impact both its aesthetic and functional quality. Unfortunately, how long you have to wear a temporary crown is reliant on how quickly a third-party dental laboratory can make your customized restoration.
At Highpoint Dental Care, we strive to offer the same services that we ourselves desire, helping ensure we are able to give you the fastest, safest, and most effective treatments available. We treat both dental emergencies and routine care quickly, enabling you to get out of the dental chair and on with your life in the shortest amount of time possible.

E4D Same Day Crowns
We use the E4D scanning and milling machine to create life-like, customized crowns for our patients. The E4D uses CAD/CAM technology to create highly detailed electronic models of your teeth, enabling the milling machine to produce a crown that looks, feels, and functions just like the tooth it is replacing. The entire process takes just a few hours and requires no impressions or other time-consuming and uncomfortable planning tools to complete.
E4D maps teeth with lasers. Unlike CEREC crowns, there is no need to dust your teeth with titanium powder before making digital impressions.
Single visit restorations offer all of the benefits of lab-created crowns in a fraction of the time. The quality, durability, functionality, and appearance of same day crowns make them an ideal solution for many of our patients. The best way to learn if they are a good fit for you is through a one-on-one consultation with one of our dentists. During this visit, we will listen carefully to your concerns and goals, discuss all possible treatment options, and work with you to select the most effective option for your needs.
Other Same Day Restorations
In addition to ceramic crowns, our CAD/CAM system can be used to mill:
- Dental bridges
- Inlays and onlays
While not appropriate for every need, same day restorations provide a strong, reliable, and attractive solution for both general and emergency dentistry needs and can be used in combination with other treatments for more comprehensive smile improvement.
