Keep reading to learn more about CEREC and how you can benefit from this technology.
What are CEREC Crowns?
A CEREC crown is a dental restoration made of ceramic that is designed to cover the entire visible portion of your tooth, strengthening and protecting it. Using a CEREC machine, we can take digital impressions of your smile and create your custom-made crown in just one easy appointment. The results are beautiful, lasting, and natural looking.
Traditional Crowns Vs. CEREC Crowns
Traditionally, a dental crown takes two separate visits for its placement. The patient comes in, the dentist takes physical molds of their teeth, and they get sent to a lab for the creation of the dental crown. After a couple weeks, the crown is ready, where the patient will go back to their dentist's office. This process is not only lengthy, but it can result in even more appointments for adjustments.
However, with CEREC same day crowns, the process is much more patient-friendly. CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. After taking digital impressions of your smile, we can send a 3D model of your exact tooth to our in-office milling system. Once the CEREC machine gets the digital plan for your treatment, it will create a precise, durable, and beautiful restoration out of a single block of high-quality ceramic. The result is a beautiful, custom-made dental crown that can be made and permanently placed on your smile in one easy appointment.

Because CEREC same-day crowns are a newer technology, many patients are curious about them. Here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about same-day crowns:
How Long Do CEREC Crowns Last?
The lifetime of your CEREC crown will directly depend on how well you take care of your smile. With proper care, you can enjoy your crown for multiple decades, but on average, they will last 10 to 15 years. It's important to brush and floss daily, avoid chewing on non-food items, and wear a mouthguard during physical activity. You should also maintain regular checkups and cleanings with our office to ensure that you're smile is still healthy and strong.
Will My CEREC Crown Look Natural?
Because a same-day crown is created using 3D images of your teeth, you'll be getting the most precise crown possible. This results in a beautiful, natural-looking restoration that appears as if it was always a part of your smile. Additionally, we only use high-quality ceramics and dental porcelain, which reflects light like your natural teeth.
Am I a Candidate for CEREC Crowns?
Candidates for CEREC crowns are typically those who have chipped, cracked, broken, or heavily decayed teeth. Especially if you want to minimize time spent in the dental chair, our CEREC crown treatment may be perfect for you. However, the only way to know if crowns are right for you is to visit our office for a consultation. We'll carefully look over your smile before developing your personalized treatment plan that includes cost.
