When it comes to providing the very best care for our patients, zircona material is our doctor’s preferred choice for same-day crowns. It is the hardest ceramic in the dental industry so the crowns are very durable and long-lasting. Zircona is also very aesthetically pleasing. The material is translucent and produces beautiful, natural looking results.
Why Patients Choose CEREC Crowns
With CEREC you can get a dental crown procedure from start to finish in just one visit. After your tooth is prepared, we use CAD/CAM software to create a digital model of it. Once your tooth’s design has been approved, it is transferred to our onsite milling unit to be prepared. It takes just 20 minutes to fabricate your crown. Once the crown is placed on your tooth, we make any necessary adjustments, and then permanently bond it into place.
If a dental lab is involved in the process, completing a crown requires two appointments. During your first dental visit, you will need an injection of anesthesia so that the dentist can prepare your tooth, take an impression of it, and send it to the laboratory. This process takes about two weeks for the laboratory to complete your permanent crown while you wear a temporary one. Then, when you return for your second dental visit, the dentist must give you another injection of anesthesia, remove the temporary crown, and place the permanent crown on your tooth.

CEREC Crowns Are Healthy
CEREC crowns made from zirconia material are healthy because the material is biocompatible. This means that the human body will not reject the material and can remain within the mouth for a very long time. This is much healthier compared gold, amalgam, and other materials used by dentists in the past. The zirconia material will closely match your natural tooth structure’s composition. This allows for both the crown and tooth to expand and contract at almost the same rates to prevent your tooth from cracking.
CEREC, Not Just For Crowns and Fillings
