What Are CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns?

While more traditional dental crowns are crafted by lab technicians in a separate location, CEREC same-day crowns can be fabricated in-house using specialized dental technology. With advanced equipment that can support CAD/CAM technology, we can scan your teeth with our digital impression system, allowing a three-dimensional model of your tooth to form on a nearby screen. In just a few short hours, that 3D image can be transformed into a fully reliable and functional crown that will sit on top of your natural tooth, giving it optimal protection over time.

The Process of Getting CEREC Same-Day Crowns

The process of receiving a CEREC same-day crown begins the same way as if you were to receive a traditional restoration.

Our team will start by clearing away any decayed or damaged portions of the tooth’s structure before altering it so that a new crown can fit snugly in place. The next step involves capturing digital impressions of your tooth and making adjustments using CAD/CAM technology.

Once we believe the proposed crown will fit adequately over your tooth structure and provide the protection it needs, we will send the image to our in-house milling unit. Here, we will place a solid piece of porcelain into the machine so that it can be crafted into a beautiful, natural-looking dental crown.

While you wait, your restoration will be fabricated, and when it is finished, we will examine it for any problem areas before giving it a final polish and securing it in place.

Benefits of CEREC Vs. Traditional Crowns

Having any kind of dental crown is highly beneficial, especially if you want to have a fully functional smile. However, the advantages of CEREC often stand out much more as opposed to traditional crowns. Some of the most distinct benefits of same-day restorations include:

  • Greater Convenience – With CEREC, you receive your new crown the same day. Traditional restorations require waiting several weeks.
  • No Temporary – One aspect of dental crowns many patients dislike is the idea of wearing a temporary. These often do not hold well in place for prolonged periods. With CEREC, though, you don’t need a temporary one since you will receive your crown the same day.
  • Personalized, Natural Appearance – CEREC crowns are crafted from beautiful porcelain, which means that your crown will blend in with your existing smile.
  • Fewer Appointments – Instead of needing multiple appointments to receive your dental crown, you’ll only require one, which can also help cut down on the cost of treatment.
