Same Day Crowns

Same Day Dental Crowns Port Macquarie

The technology available to us today allows us to place a crown in only one appointment. More complex treatment may still require a traditional crown made in the dental laboratory, but most of the time we can prepare and manufacture your crown on the same day right here in the surgery! The crowns we manufacture here are made out of the same material and are of the same quality as a lab made crown and we even provide a 7-year warranty! What this means for you is you don’t have to come back for a second appointment to fit the crown, you don’t need another numbing injection and you don’t have to worry about having a temporary crown which can sometimes fall out and be difficult to eat with.

So – how do we do this? At TL Dental, we pride ourselves in having invested in the very latest in dental technology; our mission is to change the way you think about going to the dentist, this includes our CEREC machine which allows us to manufacture porcelain crowns right here in the surgery.

How do we make a same day dental crown?


  • Your tooth is gently filed away to get rid of any infection and allow room for the crown
  • We then scan your mouth using an intra-oral scanner and this information is sent to our computer design software
  • The crown is created on the computer design software (you are welcome to watch this process if you like!)
  • We send the designed crown to our 3D milling machine in the surgery and mill your crown out of porcelain material
  • We then cement your finished crown over the top of your natural tooth


  • Same-day restoration, usually, crowns require two appointments; the first is for the preparation of the tooth and the second is for the insertion which is done 2 weeks later
  • No messy impressions, this is great for anyone who dislikes getting impressions (who does!:) and for patients with strong gag reflex
  • 7-year warranty
  • Tooth Coloured, strong material

Why do I need a Crown?

We may recommend a Dental Crown to you for a few reasons. These could be a broken or chipped tooth, severe decay, following a root canal treatment or simply to improve your smile. Dental Crowns are a very common procedure and often the best option for restoring and protecting your teeth.

What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a ‘cap' that is placed over the top of your natural tooth to help protect it from further deterioration or to improve the way your tooth looks. Dental crowns are made of many different materials but today are generally manufactured from a porcelain material that is the same shape and colour of your natural teeth.

How do I look after my Same Day Crown?

Simple! You treat your Same Day Crown as if it is one of your natural teeth. Regular brushing and flossing and six-monthly check-ups to keep everything in your mouth clean and healthy. Gum disease prevention and treatment is also key to a long-lasting dental crown.
