Same-Day Crowns

Getting a traditional dental crown to restore a tooth after decay or trauma can be a complicated process that takes weeks to complete. 

Thanks to our advanced dental technology, you can get a beautiful, durable crown in just one appointment at our Nashville, TN, office.

You can skip temporary crowns and get your smile back faster with a same-day dental crown at Iroquois Dentistry.

How We Make Same-Day Treatment Possible Introducing the CEREC System

CEREC® is an all-in-one system for the design and production of lifelike and durable dental restorations. If you need a crown to protect a single tooth or a dental bridge to replace one to three consecutive missing teeth, our CEREC system can fabricate your restoration in a single day.

Let's break down how our Nashville dentists can use CEREC to give you a high-quality, time-efficient solution for your dental issues:

3D Digital Scans

Your dentist will use an intraoral scanner to capture a detailed digital image of your smile in just moments, eliminating wait times and the need for messy dental putty used for traditional impressions.

Designing the Crown

The digital scans will be processed with CAD (computer-aided design) software, which will create a blueprint for your crown or bridge based on your bite and the shape of your natural teeth. 

Crown Fabrication

Our CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) milling unit will use the blueprint to fabricate your crown or bridge from a durable material. This technology helps us ensure that your restoration is created with the highest degree of accuracy, so it achieves a seamless look with the rest of your teeth.

You Don't Have To Wait To Restore Your Smile Contact Us for Same-Day Treatment 

Whether you have structural dental damage that makes eating and speaking a challenge or cosmetic flaws that make you feel self-conscious about your smile, our same-day crowns can do wonders for the function and appearance of your teeth. 

We can restore your smile with crowns in just a fraction of the time as other practices that don't use CEREC technology. To learn if same-day crowns are right for you, get in touch with our Nashville, TN, practice by sending us a message or calling:

Great service as always. Whether basic cleaning with Liz, or a crown installed by KB, service has been great over the 20 years I have been going to Iroquois Dentistry.

What About Dental Implants?

In addition to traditional same-day crowns, our practice can also create implant-supported crowns and bridges to quickly fill gaps in your smile.

Once you have healed from implant placement surgery after about four months, our dentists can replace your temporary restoration with a lifelike permanent restoration. Our CEREC milling system can fabricate your implant-supported dental crown during the same appointment as your scans, and you can leave our Nashville office with a beautifully restored smile.

The Same-Day Crown Process

You can have a brand-new permanent dental crown in less than 2 hours.

Numbing the Area

Dental crown treatment is not painful and can usually be performed with just local anesthesia; however, if you have dental anxiety or sensitivity, your dentist can administer nitrous sedation to help you achieve deep relaxation during your procedure.

Shaping the Tooth

Your dentist will remove any damaged or decayed dental tissue and reshape the tooth to better accommodate the crown.

Digital Scans

Once your tooth has been shaped, your dentist will take a digital scan of the treatment area, which will be sent to our milling system to guide the fabrication of your crown.

It can take just minutes to create a crown with our CEREC milling machine. While you wait, feel free to listen to music with a pair of our comfortable headphones or watch a show on TV, which we have in every treatment room.

Placing the Crown

When your crown is ready, your dentist will secure it to your tooth with dental cement. Your crown will be designed with the highest level of precision, but your dentist might make a few minor adjustments to ensure the absolute best fit between the crown and your tooth.

How Much Do Dental Crowns Cost?

The average cost for same-day dental crowns at our Nashville, TN, practice is $1,642 per crown; however, your final cost can vary depending on whether you received preparatory treatments, like a dental cleaning or root canal.


You may be wondering if same-day crowns are covered by insurance. Fortunately, any crown used for restorative purposes, like protecting a damaged tooth or replacing an older crown, will likely receive at least partial coverage; however, a crown used for cosmetic reasons, like enhancing the appearance of a stained tooth, will not be covered. We accept most dental insurance plans. 


If you are uninsured or paying out-of-pocket for crown dentistry services, we have financing options for you. We work with CareCredit®, a healthcare lender that can help you secure a low- or no-interest loan to cover your treatment. CareCredit can break the cost of your same-day crowns into smaller monthly installments for easy payment.

After my dentist of 30 years retired, I looked for a dentist of expertise, a professional office and staff and modern equipment. Finally I found Dr. K B Parker’s at Iroquois Dental. He more than fulfilled the above. This is the dental office you’ve been looking for.
