What are CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns?

While some practices only offer traditional dental crowns that need to be made at a separate laboratory, our practice is able to create crowns in-office with the CEREC system. The system has three main components: a digital camera for taking pictures of your teeth, special software that can design a restoration that fits your exact needs, and a milling unit that can carve crowns out of a block of ceramic material.

The Process of Getting a CEREC Same-Day Dental Crown

Getting a CEREC crown typically only takes a matter of hours. Here’s what the process typically entails:

  • Some enamel is filed away from the tooth that will receive the crown. (We will numb your mouth for this part of the process.)
  • Multiple images of your tooth will be captured. The CEREC software will use these images to determine the proper shape, size, and color for your crown.
  • Our in-office milling unit will then create a crown that matches your needs.
  • We’ll check to see if any adjustments are required. Then the crown will be attached to your tooth.

The Benefits of CEREC Crowns vs. Traditional Crowns

Choosing a CEREC crown over a traditional crown means you will get to enjoy the following advantages:

  • You can entirely avoid the need to wear a temporary crown.
  • You won’t have to schedule multiple visits to our office; a single appointment is typically enough.
  • You won’t need to worry about gooey, unpleasant-tasting impression material since digital images will be used to design the crown.
