Same Day Crowns
CEREC (Ceramic Restoration) is a state-of-the-art dental restoration system that creates natural-looking crowns right in the dental office while you wait—you no longer need to schedule several appointments, or wear a temporary crown while you wait for your restoration to be made at an off-site laboratory.
We can complete and place your crown in just ONE office visit!
How does CEREC work? CEREC uses a special camera and computerized system to design your dental restoration while you relax in the dental chair!
• First, we will prepare your tooth for a crown and then take a photo of your tooth
• Then, a 3D model of your tooth is created on the computer screen
• We will then use the system to design your crown
• The computer-assisted manufacturing that follows is extremely precise
• This innovative process eliminates the need for messy impressions and temporary crowns.
CEREC is a German technology that was first developed more than 30 years ago. Today, CEREC is setting new standards in dentistry and constantly evolving to adapt to the demands of dentists and their patients. When you choose a dentist specializing in CEREC assisted restorations, you are choosing a dentist who is dedicated to accuracy, efficiency and durability.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I benefit from CEREC?
Absolutely! CEREC can help anyone who needs an inlay, onlay, crown, bridge or even veneers. It takes only minutes to get accurate and detailed images of your teeth.
What should I expect from a CEREC dentist?
CEREC takes only minutes to obtain digital images. Our team will then use CEREC’s CAD/CAM technology to virtually design a restoration. The amount of time this takes depends upon the complexity of your restoration, but in most cases you will have your crown on the same day.
What are the long-term results with CEREC?
Though exact experiences vary from patient to patient, you can expect a crown produced using CEREC technology to last you many years so long as you use good oral hygiene and are not grinding your teeth.
