What Are CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns?

CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. What this means is that these crowns can be constructed and placed in a single appointment, all in one convenient location. As a form of advanced technology, three different components must be used to craft a beautiful, porcelain crown: the system used to capture an impression of your tooth, the CAM/CAD software that helps to design the crown digitally, and an in-house milling unit that fabricates a new crown from a piece of porcelain.

The Process of Getting CEREC Same-Day Crowns

The early stages of receiving a dental crown are the same no matter if you receive a traditional or CEREC restoration. Our team must clean the tooth thoroughly to ensure no bacteria remain and that the structure is ready for a new protective barrier (the crown).

Once this is complete, our CEREC system will capture an impression of your tooth, which will appear on a nearby computer screen. CAD/CAM technology will then be used to digitally design the new crown so that it fits securely and looks completely natural.

The design that is created will then be sent to our in-house milling unit, which will take a solid piece of porcelain and begin to shape and sculpt it into your new dental crown. All of this will occur while you wait.

When ready, our team will remove the crown and give it a final polish before securing it over your vulnerable tooth and making sure that it fits properly and comfortably.
