Why It’s Better for You

No follow-up appointment is necessary.

We create and place your permanent dental restoration in one visit so you don’t have to deal with an uncomfortable and inconvenient temporary crown.

A long-term solution

It’s a long-term solution proven in dental practices millions of times over. Dentsply Sirona, the world leader in dental solutions, develops the technology.

Looks and acts like a natural tooth

A CEREC® crown looks and feels like your natural tooth, unlike many conventional crowns that use a metal base, which limits transparency and can have a dark edge.

It preserves more of your natural tooth.

It preserves more of your natural tooth as only the decayed or damaged tooth surface is removed, keeping as much of the healthy tooth as possible.

Eliit’sinates the unpleasant impression process

The digital scanner captures a full-mouth image in seconds, eliminating the unpleasant impression process. You don’t have to bite down on impression material for several minutes or experience numbness or jaw ache.

How It Works

  1. We use a digital scanner to take an image of your tooth
  2. We create a 3D model of both your teeth and the new restoration on the computer.
  3. The restoration is made from a ceramic block using our milling machine, located right here in our office.
  4. The dentist placed the custom-fit restoration during the same visit, just a short time later.

  • What is a dental crown?

    Dental crowns are commonly used to treat a range of dental issues. They can cap a damaged tooth that has lost its natural structure, often due to a large filling or root canal therapy. This helps to restore the tooth so that it can be used commonly.

    Crowns can also be attached to dental implants surgically inserted into the jawbone. The crown is the tooth’s root, keeping it steady and secure. This procedure is often used to replace missing teeth.

    Furthermore, dental crowns may also provide additional support for dental bridges.

    The good news is that dental crowns do not require any special treatment. They can be brushed and flossed as usual, just like natural teeth.

  • How does a CEREC® dental restoration procedure work?

    The first step of this procedure is to prepare the tooth for dental restoration. Varying from patient to patient, the dentist takes photos of the affected teeth using either one of CEREC’s® imaging solutions:

    Using the CEREC® Omnicam, the dentist takes multiple images of your tooth, sending a colored, 3D model to the CEREC® machine.

    Using the CEREC® Bluecam, we coat the teeth with a contrasting agent before taking images of your teeth.

    Then, these highly detailed images are sent to a computer screen where the dentist can view the affected tooth or teeth from every angle in order to design the final restoration. Once the design is complete, it is sent to the milling unit to conclude the restoration process.

  • Are same-day crowns more expensive than traditional crowns?

    While same-day crowns may have a slightly higher upfront cost due to the advanced technology involved, they often save patients money in the long run by eliminating the need for multiple appointments and temporary crowns.

  • How long does it take to get a same-day crown by CEREC®?

    The entire process, from tooth preparation to crown placement, can typically be completed in a single dental visit, usually within a couple of hours.
