Same Day Crowns

Same-Day Crowns in Farmington, NM

We all know just how important it is to keep our teeth and gums healthy; however, sometimes our oral routine falls flat. We might forget to brush our teeth before bed, or we may crunch on ice to cool down. Unfortunately, these habits can lead to toothaches, decay and broken teeth. When this happens, Dr. Travis Watson and the dental team here at Pinon Hills Dental can restore your tooth with a dental crown. Not just any dental crown, though; a same-day or CEREC crown.

What are same-day crowns?

Same Day Crowns in Farmington, NM

Thanks to advancements in dental technology, our Pinon Hills Dental team can now offer a way to create beautiful, long-lasting ceramic dental restorations including crowns and veneers in-house with the help of computer-assisted technology and equipment. Instead of turning to an outside dental lab to craft your custom restoration, which can take weeks, our dental team can do all this right here in our Farmington, NM office.

How are same-day crowns crafted?

Since dental crowns are now being designed and made by our dental team, you may have questions about the process. In order to create a CEREC crown, we will first need to take digital images of your teeth. This will provide us with the measurements we need to design a custom-fitted crown.

These digital dental impressions are then turned into 3D images. Our computer-assisted technology will help us design a crown using these images. From there, this data is then sent to our milling station, where we will choose the appropriate shade of ceramic among other options that will give you the custom crown you need for your smile.

What are the benefits of a same-day crown?

One of the major benefits is that getting a dental crown is no longer an extensive process. Instead of coming into our office two or three times just to get a crown, we can now provide you with high-quality ceramic crowns and other restorations in just one visit.

Since your permanent crown is designed and placed in one visit this negates the need for a temporary crown. You’ll walk into our office and walk right back out with your new crown. The process only takes about 1.5-2 hours.

Same-day crowns are also made from medical-grade, durable ceramic, which means that with the proper care your crown could last up to a decade or more before needing to be replaced.

If you are interested in getting Same-Day Crowns in Farmington, NM, Pinon Hills Dental can determine whether you’re a good candidate for treatment.

  • "Travis Watson was truly the most kind, compassionate, honest, and detail-oriented dentist that I have ever been to. I have had work done by at least a half dozen or more dentists over the years, and Dr. Watson was BY FAR the most compassionate, kind, and caring when it came to my procedure and dental work needs. I couldn't possibly recommend. Dr. Watson and Pinon Hills Dental any higher. Five stars isn't enough. Dr. Watson should get 10 stars. If there was a Nobel Prize for dentistry, Dr. Watson should win it--and many times over. If you're considering a dentist in the Farmington area--or beyond (I came from Durango)--Dr. Watson should be your choice. Beyond belief, you'll actually look forward going to the dentist. I'm forever grateful for Dr. Watson's skill, compassion, and kindness--and you will be too."

  • "If you want a dentist who truly cares about his patients, you must see Dr. Watson. He Has the latest technology in-house and it's amazing. For my last crown, Dr. Watson scanned my tooth with a laser and then a machine in the office milled my crown from porcelain to the scan. It was a perfect fit and that tooth hasn't felt so good in years. He was always asking if I needed a break, if I felt any discomfort to let him know immediately and so on. Can't say enough good things about him. Our entire family trusts Pinon Hills Dental with their dental Care!"

  • "The staff here are very friendly and accommodating. I was in a decent amount of pain so they moved my appointment up and kept me from hurting for an extra 5 days. Dr. Watson personally called me to check on me and make sure things we're ok. It means a lot that he didn't have an assistant or secretary make that call."

  • "Dr. Watson is absolutely incredible in every way! We have always been treated with the utmost respect, compassion and expertise. He has gone out of his way to treat our family in emergency situations. In each instant, he provided amazing and excellent care when other dentists could not. He is always positive and reassuring in all situations! His office staff, dental assistants and hygienists are incredible in every way! The atmosphere in the office is peaceful, positive and upbeat! We highly recommend Pinon Hills!!!"

  • "The politeness and care of the dentist, dental hygienist and the staff wowed me today. Dr. Watson and Dr. Weber really have a vested interest in your teeth. They are very concerned to the point that I brush and floss so I won't let them down.
    You never feel belittled by anyone in the office and they only encourage you when you need to do a little better. I used to worry about going to the dentist but now I know I have people who want the best for me in the doctors office."
