Benefits of CEREC Crowns

October 31, 2022 9:40 pm

Did you know that traditional dental crowns could take up to two weeks for the entire treatment to be complete? Now, thanks to many technological advancements, CEREC® same-day crowns can create and place your crown in a single visit! Here’s what you need to know about CEREC and how it can benefit your smile.

What Are CEREC Same-Day Crowns?

CEREC utilizes advanced 3D software and imaging as well as an on-site milling unit to plan, design, fabricate, and attach your dental crown all in one appointment. With traditional dental crowns, patients would have to get messy impressions of their teeth and then be sent home with uncomfortable temporary crowns while an off-site lab manufactured their crown(s). CEREC brings everything to the dentist’s office so that you don’t have to wait to get the results you’re looking for.

The CEREC Same-Day Crown Process

First, your dentist will take mess-free digital impressions of your smile. Then, they’ll use CEREC software to design the shape, size, and overall appearance of your crown. Once the design is complete, they utilize their high-tech milling unit to craft the crown in-house. After your crown is complete, they will place it over your tooth and check the fit to ensure it is perfect. Once they have gone through multiple points of inspection, they will cement the crown in place. Just like that, you are all done and ready to go home rocking a new smile!
