What are CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns?

Thanks to the CEREC system, it is now possible for us to create crowns in our very own office instead of having to rely on an outside laboratory. The system has three major components: a digital camera for taking pictures of your smile, software for designing your crown, and a milling unit for creating the restoration. Thanks to this advanced technology, we can produce and place high-quality crowns without requiring our patients to schedule multiple appointments.

The Process of Getting a CEREC Same-Day Dental Crown

Before anything else, we need to take a close look at the tooth in question and confirm that a dental crown is the right choice for treating it. Once you’ve committed to the process, we’ll gently file away some enamel from the tooth to ensure that there’s enough room to place the final restoration.

Next, we will use our digital camera to capture the necessary images of your tooth. Said images will provide our CEREC software with the information it needs to figure out the right size, shape, and color for the crown. When the final design is ready, it will be sent to the milling unit so that the crown can be made.

The last step is to place the restoration on your tooth. Rest assured that we will always check the crown carefully to make sure that it’s the right fit.

The Benefits of CEREC Crowns vs. Traditional Crowns

While a traditional crown can still be a reliable option when it comes to keeping your damaged tooth safe, CEREC crowns come with several advantages:

  • They’re generally more convenient, as you will only need to make room in your schedule for a single appointment in order to have a CEREC crown placed.
  • They don’t require you to wear uncomfortable, easily damaged temporary crowns.
  • They can be made out of materials that match the appearance of your teeth very closely, thus restoring your smile in a way that looks natural.
  • They are designed via digital impressions, meaning there’s no need for you to bite down on any unpleasant-tasting putty.
