One-Stop Shop

The Unbeatable Advantage of Same-day Crowns

Typically, the dental crown process takes two visits to complete and requires a temporary crown or filling. Here at Earp Dentistry, we value your time and strive to make your visit as seamless as possible by providing same-day crowns.

No Messy Impressions

Instead of using messy and uncomfortable putty impressions, our intraoral camera accurately scans your tooth in seconds, allowing us to design your fully customized crown.

No Second Visit

By creating and placing restorations in one visit, patients don't need to deal with temporary crowns and don't have to wait on an offsite lab. Altogether, they spend less time in the dental chair.

Why We Use Porcelain for Our Dental Crowns


Today's dentists can choose from a range of materials to create dental crowns, but we believe that porcelain remains the best choice for our patients throughout Greenville and beyond. Porcelain can be color-matched to natural teeth, so your restoration will look indistinguishable from the real thing. Porcelain crowns can be precisely sculpted for optimal fit without compromising on strength and durability. This material offers superb functional and aesthetic value at a reasonable price point.

What Is the Cost of a Dental Crown?

Here at Earp Dentistry in Greenville and Plymouth, NC, we typically charge $1,000 to $1,250 per crown. The price depends on several factors, such as which tooth is being treated and how much your dental insurance will cover. We try to make treatment more affordable in the following ways:

Maximizing Your Benefits

Our office is in-network for most dental insurance providers, and we will work with you to get the maximum benefits. Most companies provide coverage for at least a portion of the cost of a crown.

Accepting Financing

We offer financing through CareCredit®, a lending company that splits costs into monthly payments. This adds flexibility and peace of mind, and makes dental care that much more affordable.

Take a Look at How Crowns Are Placed

After applying local anesthetic and carefully reshaping the tooth, your dentist will fit it with a customized dental crown made at one of our offices in Greenville and Plymouth, NC. You won't have to wait days or weeks or wear a temporary crown when you choose our practice.

What to Expect During Same-Day Crown Treatment

Keep in mind that some patients might not be good candidates for same-day crowns. We work with a reputable lab that creates precisely customized traditional crowns. If you do qualify for same-day treatment, you can expect several convenient steps:
We accept most types of insurance and offer financing options. 
We accept most types of insurance and offer financing options. 


At your initial consultation at our Greenville or Plymouth office, our dentist will examine your teeth using advanced technology to determine if a crown is right for you. We will explain the treatment process and answer any questions you may have.


In some cases, a tooth with extensive decay may need root canal therapy to address pain and infection in preparation for a dental crown.


The top and sides of your tooth are gently reshaped to ensure the crown fits snugly over the tooth.


Your dentist uses an intraoral camera to scan the tooth and design your crown. The porcelain material is color-matched with surrounding teeth to ensure a seamless appearance. The images are sent to our onsite CEREC machine.


The CEREC machine mills your custom crown out of porcelain as you wait in our comfortable office. This eliminates the need for a temporary crown or second dental appointment.


Once the crown is ready, our dentist places it over the tooth to ensure a comfortable fit. Any necessary adjustments are made before permanently cementing the crown. 
We encourage patients to stay on top of their routine dental visits and practice good brushing and flossing habits to maintain their crown.

Why You Shouldn't Wait to Get a Dental Crown

Risk of More Severe Damage

A tooth that needs a crown is always susceptible to further damage from biting, chewing, or teeth grinding. If the tooth were to split or become severely damaged, a crown may no longer be a viable option. The tooth may need to be extracted and replaced with a dental implant.

Prevent Further Decay

Bacteria can quickly spread in the mouth and cause existing decay to worsen. Over time, decay can affect the tooth roots. The only way to address this concern is with a root canal, which will add time and money to your dental treatment plan.

Ready to Get Started? So Are We. Contact Us to Request a Dental Crown Appointment

Early intervention for a compromised tooth can mean the difference between treatment with a custom-crafted dental crown and more invasive procedures, like tooth extraction or a root canal. Instead of delaying treatment and spending more time restoring your smile down the line, you can get the treatment you need now during a same-day crown appointment at our Greenville or Plymouth office.

Our dentists have extensive experience providing comfortable, effective, and time-efficient care for patients in need of dental crowns. If you're looking for a straightforward treatment process, we're the team for you. Send us a message online or give us a call to get started.

Are You Missing One or More Teeth? A Dental Bridge Can Help

For patients who are missing one to three teeth, a dental bridge can fill in the gaps, restoring your ability to eat and speak with ease and significantly improving your day-to-day life. We offer both traditional and implant-supported bridges and can help determine which is best for you during a consultation at our Greenville or Plymouth office.

  • Traditional bridges are made of one or more false teeth in between two crowns, which are attached to your natural teeth.
  • In contrast, an implant-supported bridge is attached to implant posts and doesn't require support from surrounding teeth.

Bridges can be brushed and flossed just like your natural teeth.
