Does Your Dentist Offer Same-Day Dentistry?

If your dentist does not offer same-day dentistry, it might be time to schedule a dental appointment with Dr. Jose Valenzuela in Los Algodones. Here are just a few benefits of choosing a dentist that offers same-day dental work:

Immediate Results

We can design, mill, and place your permanent restoration in a single visit to our Los Algodones dental office.

Fewer Appointments ​

Our Los Algodones team can fully restore your smile without the hassle and inconvenience of multiple appointments.

No Temporaries

You can enjoy the final results of your dental work right away, without the extra cost of a temporary restoration.

Quick and Easy Dental Work with Advanced Technology

Our Los Algodones dentist uses the advanced CAD/CAM (computer-assisted design and manufacturing) tool PrograMill® One from Ivoclar Vivadent® to complete custom dental work in one day. With an innovative rotary grinding process and easy wireless operation, our dentist can scan your tooth once it is prepped and then have a designer remotely access the system. Using this technology, our Los Algodones team can mill your restoration in a single appointment. Typically, designing and milling a crown at our Los Algodones dental office takes just 15 minutes.

Same-Day Dental Restorations Offered at Our Los Algodones Dental Office


Dental crowns can restore teeth that have suffered severe damage or decay. These tooth-shaped caps provide extra strength and reinforcement, restoring the bite for optimal health, function, and aesthetics.

Porcelain veneers are placed on the front surfaces of teeth to conceal flaws such as chips, cracks, or discoloration. Our Los Algodones dentist offers same-day veneers to transform your smile in one appointment.

Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays are custom restorations that fit like puzzle pieces into your natural tooth structure. They are used when tooth damage is too large for a filling, but not extensive enough for a crown.

Dental Implant Restorations

Dental implants are threaded titanium posts that replace missing tooth roots. Our Los Algodones dentist can create same-day implant crowns and bridges, shortening your treatment timeline.

What to Expect When You Receive Same-Day Dentistry

Qualifying patients can have their dental work completed in one day. Here is what to expect when you receive same-day dentistry at our Los Algodones dental office:

Day of Procedure

Preparing Your Teeth

Our Los Algodones dentist will prepare your teeth based on the type of restoration you need. This usually involves removing a small amount of tooth enamel. Any decay or damaged portions will be removed during this step.

Taking Dental Impressions

Once your teeth are prepared, our Los Algodones dental team will scan your smile and upload the specifications into the PrograMill system. This step is completed using a handheld wand, which captures images of your teeth.

Designing Your Restoration

Once your impressions have been taken by our Los Algodones dental team, a technician will remotely access the software and design a custom restoration according to your unique dental needs.

Fabricating Your Restoration

The image files are then uploaded to our in-office milling machine, where your restoration is made. Your dentist can create a range of restorations, including ceramic and zirconia crowns, dental bridges, veneers, inlays, and onlays.

Placing Your Restoration

Dr. Valenzuela can make any adjustments to ensure your restoration fits comfortably and looks natural. Once you are satisfied with the results, he will bond the restoration in place for a fully restored smile.

How Much Does Same-Day Dental Work Cost?

At Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry Center in Los Algodones, we are committed to providing affordable dental care. A same-day crown at our office typically costs between $450 and $850. In contrast, an all-porcelain crown made at a laboratory in the U.S. can cost anywhere between $800 and $3,000. There are a variety of factors that can affect the final cost of your same-day restoration, including:

The Type of Restoration

The cost of a crown can differ significantly from a bridge or veneer.

Your Current Oral Health

You may need other dental procedures to restore your health before placing a restoration. Additional dental work will add to the overall cost of treatment.

What about Same-Day Dental Implant Restorations?

Many of our Los Algodones patients want to know if dental implant restorations can be placed on the same day as their dental implants. The answer depends on the specific situation. In many cases, dental implants must fuse to the jawbone before they can be restored with a crown, bridge, or denture. This usually takes an average of three to six months. However, there are some instances in which dental implants and restorations can be placed during the same visit to our Los Algodones dental office. You can receive same-day dental implant restorations if you:

  • Have enough dense bone tissue surrounding the dental implant
  • Choose All-on-4® dental implants
  • Choose All-on-6® dental implants

If you do not qualify for same-day treatment, Dr. Valenzuela will create a custom dental implant treatment plan to complete your dental work in as few visits as possible.

"The Best Dentist I Have Ever Had..."

The best dentist and service I have ever had. Always professional and friendly staff. I now have the perfect teeth and smile I have wanted for years. Don’t hesitate to have your smile back. It is very easy to park and walk across the border. Just a few minutes to the office. They employ the latest technology including CT scan and digital scans of your teeth and mouth to produce crowns. I had a complete restoration consisting of 3 implants and 26 crowns. Thank you Dr. Cota and Dr. Valenzuela.

My doctor was Dinael Cota and he was very kind and patient with me and my dental anxiety and nervousness. He made sure to listen to what I wanted but also give really good suggestions to help me make good decisions about how my smile should look. Crossing the border was no issue, and it takes about a minute and a half to walk to Dr. Valenzuela's office. I felt super safe and it was fun to walk around Los Algodones and shop after my procedure was finished.
