CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns
The good news about modern dental crowns is that they not only effectively restore teeth, but also provide a highly lifelike restoration that’s almost indistinguishable from your healthy teeth. The porcelain that’s often used to create them can be customized to match the color, shade, and texture of your teeth, and the technology used to create crowns can replicate the precise size, shape, and contour of your tooth. At our office, we offer CEREC same-day crowns that allow us to design and create your crown in our office, and in just a single day.
When a Dental Crown Is Needed
Dental crowns are one of the most common restorations we recommend. They’re not only effective, but can also address a wide range of issues with your healthy tooth structure and can be the ideal solution for problems such as:
- Cracked/fractured teeth
- Teeth with large chips in their surfaces
- Teeth with pieces broken off
- Severe cosmetic tooth blemishes
- Misshapen teeth
- Missing teeth
- And more
How a CEREC Crown Works
CEREC is a digital imaging, design, and milling system that uses CAD/CAM technology to centralize the design and crafting of your dental restoration. The digital images and measurements we capture create a computerized 3D model of your teeth and oral structures. It also digitally measures the size, shape, and contour of your tooth, then sends those measurements to an on-site milling machine that immediately begins crafting your crown. The time it takes to create your crown will vary depending on several factors, but you’ll be able to leave our office the same day with your newly restored tooth and smile.
