Is it too good to be true? One visit only? No temporary crown? No wait for the permanent crown?

Same day crowns are available now due to advances in digital technologies. By using a digital camera and capturing a picture of your tooth, the need for impressions that must be sent in to a dental laboratory is eliminated. The custom crown is then immediately milled and created while the patient waits.
The need to wear a temporary, visit the office again in two to three weeks, and get numb a second time are all avoided. About 10-15% of dentists have currently adopted the technology.
