Dental Crowns

Dreaming of a confident smile that feels natural? At Dr. Kathy Zahedi DDS & Associates, we specialize in creating perfect dental crowns tailored just for you. Our expert team in Santa Monica offers a variety of custom crown options that not only enhance your smile but also restore the function of your teeth.


Same-day dental crowns, also known as chairside or one-visit crowns, utilize advanced technology to create and place a dental crown in a single appointment. This innovative process eliminates the need for traditional methods that involve multiple visits and temporary crowns. The procedure typically involves computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology.

During the appointment, a dentist uses a digital scanner to create a 3D image of the tooth requiring the crown. The CAD software then designs the crown, and the CAM technology mills it from a solid block of dental material, such as ceramic or composite resin. Once fabricated, the crown is immediately placed onto the prepared tooth. Same-day dental crowns offer convenience, efficiency, and aesthetic appeal, making them a popular choice for patients seeking a time-saving solution for restoring damaged or weakened teeth.

Dental crowns are a versatile solution for various dental issues. Consider them in the following situations:

  1. Severe Tooth Decay: When a tooth has extensive decay that can’t be fixed with a filling.
  2. Fractured or Cracked Teeth: Crowns provide strength and support for significantly damaged teeth.
  3. Large Fillings: For teeth with large fillings, crowns offer added stability.
  4. Root Canal Treatment: Crowns protect and strengthen teeth after root canal therapy.
  5. Cosmetic Enhancements: Crowns improve the appearance of misshapen, discolored, or poorly sized teeth.
  6. Support for Dental Bridges: Crowns act as anchors for dental bridges to replace missing teeth.
  7. Protecting Weak Teeth: Crowns prevent further damage to weakened teeth.

We will assess your dental condition to determine if a crown is the appropriate treatment.

Same-day dental crowns offer several advantages:

  1. Time Efficiency: The entire procedure is completed in a single visit, saving time and reducing the need for multiple appointments.
  2. Convenience: Eliminates the need for temporary crowns and the waiting period of traditional crowns.
  3. Immediate Restoration: Provides instant restoration of damaged teeth, addressing both functional and aesthetic concerns immediately.
  4. Digital Precision: Utilizes CAD/CAM technology for precise and accurate crown fabrication.
  5. Minimized Discomfort: Fewer appointments and no temporary crowns result in less discomfort.
  6. Single Anesthetic Application: Only one application of anesthesia is needed, enhancing comfort.
  7. Customization: Crowns are custom-matched to the natural color and shape of existing teeth for a seamless result.
