How the CEREC Same Day Crown Process Works
We use a special computerized tooth creation technology called CEREC. This digital system works from imaging to production in a short time in our own office. You can read more about each step below.
A Camera Instead of Messy Impressions
After we prepare your tooth, we use this ultraprecise camera that takes a digital image of your tooth. This eliminates the need for messy putty and impression materials that most patients hate- including the gag-inducing feeling of a tray in your mouth.
This image takes into account of exactly how your tooth should look and how your bite should feel. The image is then uploaded to a computer that designs porcelain crowns for your teeth.
3-D Printer Mills Your Tooth in Less Than 12 Minutes!
Two specialized diamond burs or points actually mill the tooth that we designed from a block of solid porcelain while you wait. This milling is done fully in our own office. We don’t have to send anything to a dental lab because the 3-D Tooth printer literally “prints out” your tooth in less than 12 minutes.
In the past, patients could wait 2 weeks for a dental lab to produce a porcelain crown. With CEREC technology, we can mill your unique crown while you wait in the dental chair!
To maintain your unique look, you can even choose the color of porcelain that you want your tooth to be milled from. This helps your new dental crown blend in with your other teeth. We have full control of this entire process, so we can offer you convenient porcelain crowns that are designed just for you!
Once your new crown is bonded to your tooth, you are ready to leave our office with a restored smile! No temporary crowns, and no second appointment! Of course, you are always welcome to schedule a follow-up visit, but you might not need one with the high-quality dental crown that has been designed for your needs.
This process means that we can produce same day crowns, getting you back to your busy life in no time! We love how CEREC provides same day crowns, and we know you will, too!
Other Dental Implements
Although CEREC is often used for crowns, this same process applies to any other dental implement we can produce for you, including veneers, inlays, and onlays. Whatever dental appliance you need, we are ready to produce dental items that will improve your health and appearance!
