CEREC Dental Crowns
The Advantages of CEREC Crowns for Patients
CEREC technology allows patients to complete their dental crown procedure in only one visit. We use CAD/CAM software to create a digital model of your tooth after it has been prepared. The design is transferred to our onsite milling unit for fabrication, which takes only 20 minutes. The crown is then placed on your tooth, and we make any final adjustments for a perfect fit. We permanently bond it into place.

Lab Fabricated Crowns
Fabricating a crown requires two appointments when a dental lab is involved. At the first dental visit, you will need an anesthesia injection so the dentist can prepare your tooth, take an impression, and send it to the laboratory. The laboratory will then take about two weeks to complete your permanent crown. Meanwhile, you must wear a temporary crown. After the lab has finished fabricating the crown and sends it back to the dentist, you must return for a second visit. At this visit, the dentist may need to give you the second injection of anesthesia, remove the temporary crown, and place the permanent crown on your tooth.
CEREC Crowns Are Healthy
The health benefits of CEREC crowns made from zirconia material are numerous. Firstly, the material is bio-compatible, meaning that it will not be rejected by the human body and can remain in the mouth for extended periods of time. Additionally, zirconia is a much healthier material than gold, amalgam, and other materials often used in crowns. Not to mention, zirconia closely matches the natural composition of tooth structure. This is significant because it allows the crown and tooth to expand and contract simultaneously, which prevents the tooth from cracking.
CEREC, Not Just For Crowns and Fillings
CEREC is also excellent for repairing chipped or discolored teeth. It produces stunning results for porcelain anterior crowns and veneers, leaving a lasting impression. Within an hour or less, you will walk out with a beautiful smile enhancement.
