CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns
Now you can get a dental crown in just one day with CEREC technology.
In the past, getting a crown meant going into the dentist's office for at least two appointments. The first involved preparing the tooth to be crowned, then taking an impression of the remaining tooth structure using goopy impression paste. It would take a couple of weeks for your dental crown to be ready for placement at your second appointment.
With CEREC crowns, this process takes place all in the same appointment. After the tooth is prepared for the crown, a digital impression is made of the tooth structure. While you wait, this is sent to the CEREC machine located on-site, and your custom crown is made.
CEREC crowns are high-quality porcelain crowns so there is no metal ring around your gums as you might have had with traditional ceramic over metal crowns.
