Same-Day Crowns Dentist Holland, MI

Depending on your situation, a same-day crown may cost relatively the same as one made in a lab. But it’s also important to think of value in terms of time, comfort, and convenience. Not only are same-day crowns made in one appointment, but they’re also made from highly precise digital impressions to ensure a comfortable, natural-looking fit.

Here are some of the advantages of same-day crowns.

You’ll Miss Less Work

We understand that it can sometimes be difficult trying to get time off from work. That’s why many of our patients appreciate that we’re able to plan and place dental crowns in one appointment.

Instead of having to schedule a second appointment and miss more time off from work, you’ll be able to return to work with a new dental crown that’ll last for years to come. By missing less work, you’ll also be able to bring home more earnings than you might have if you had to schedule a second appointment.

There’s No Second Appointment

Your time is worth something. We understand that time spent in our dentist’s chair is time that could have been spent at work, school, or home.

Out of consideration for our patients, we’ve adopted some of the latest technology to make same-day dental crowns possible. Dr. Habecker is able to plan and place your new dental crown in one appointment so you can spend less time in our office.

You Won’t Need a Temporary Crown

In the past, you would have needed a temporary crown placed over your tooth while you waited for an outside lab to create the permanent restoration. Fortunately, our office has adopted new technology that allows us to plan and place your same-day crown in one visit.

After we remove enough tooth structure for the dental crown to sit comfortably over top, we’ll take digital impressions of your teeth and go on to create your new restoration.

You May Need Other Dental Procedures

Our dentist may recommend same-day dental crowns for teeth weakened by decay, trauma, or repeated dental procedures. Depending on your case, you may also need other procedures to restore the full function and natural appearance of your smile. For example, you may also need a filling for an adjacent tooth.

Ultimately, the total cost of treatment will depend on the type of dental work you need.


For an accurate estimate, you’ll need to schedule a consultation with our dentist. During your appointment, we may take some X-rays and Dr. Habecker will examine the inside of your mouth. With this information, we’ll be able to determine your next steps and provide an estimated cost for a dental crown.

You should also check your dental insurance policy to see what procedures are covered. Most, if not all, policies should cover dental crowns. But it never hurts to look.

Dear Patient Family,

The COVID-19 pandemic has been a difficult time for all of us. Many of you have been forced to wait for dental care and we appreciate your understanding while we kept our office closed to follow orders from the Governor's Office.

We are happy to say that we are opening our office for all patient treatment on June 1st, 2020. Our hours of operation will go back to normal, Monday-Thursday 8am - 5pm. We want you to know that there will be some changes at your next appointment. Please be patient with us as our protocols will inevitably change as new guidelines are released.

  • We ask that you use our parking lot as the waiting room.
  • Please wear a mask when you come into the office and leave it on until entering the treatment room. Homemade is acceptable.
  • Only the person receiving treatment should come in the building, all others will be asked to wait in the car if at all possible. The exception will be for our minor patients who may have one parent accompany them.
  • We will be asking you some questions when you arrive at the office and we will also be taking your temperature.
  • We will not be able to offer magazines, drinks, or toys at this time as they cannot be disinfected to our standards. Eventually this will change and we will be happy to offer our amenities once again.

These changes have been made to adhere to the latest CDC guidelines and for the benefit of our patients and our staff. We want you to know that our office has always taken the safety of our patients very seriously and that we will continue to follow the highest levels of sterilization and disinfection to keep you protected. If you would like more information on what measures we have taken we would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

We cannot say how excited we are to see all of our patients again and to provide for their dental needs. We look forward to seeing all of your smiling faces soon!

Dr. Habecker and Team
