CEREC Same-Day Crown

Do you want to get crowns without taking time out of your busy schedule for several visits to the dentists? We use the latest technology to help you get the same quality of crowns in a fraction of the time that traditional crowns take. At Cedars Family Dental, we offer CEREC same-day crowns, a convenient alternative to traditional crowns. This state-of-the-art technology is all located in-house, which means you avoid the hassle of multiple visits.

What are CEREC Same-Day Crowns?

Same-day CEREC crowns use 3D imaging and then our in-office CEREC machine. CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.

We use CEREC for computer-assisted design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) to create single-day restorations for our patients, including crowns. Using CEREC allows the crown to fit precisely over your tooth or teeth right in the office instead of sending it to a lab.

Because there is no need for return visits, the process usually takes under two hours to complete. CEREC same-day crowns offer complete comfort and convenience which:

Because they take less time and labor than the costs of traditional crowns, they can cost the equivalent or even less. Some insurance plans cover partial costs of such procedures. Your dentist will help you understand whether insurance will cover this.

CEREC crowns are made with a ceramic-resin composite that is safe and durable. Ceramic crowns may be preferred for those who do not want any metal in their mouths or are sensitive to certain metals. However, they are still long-lasting, close to your natural teeth, and simple to care for.

Same-day crowns are more convenient, but they are also more comfortable. Patients that choose CEREC same-day crowns spend less time going to procedures and attending appointments.

If you have anxiety about going to the dentist, choosing a same-day option may be better because it only takes one appointment to complete. It can be surprising to learn how fast and straightforward getting same-day CEREC crowns can be, along with how incredible the results are.

Same-day crowns may not be for everyone and may depend on the type of damage your teeth have. Only your dentist can tell you if CEREC same-day crowns will be a good fit.

How Do CEREC Same-Day Crowns Compare to Traditional Crowns?

Crowns are a type of dental accessory fitted to protect weak, worn, damaged, or cracked teeth. Traditional crowns typically involve several visits to the dentist.

In the first visit, your dentist will do the necessary dental work to repair the teeth and then take an impression with a tray to create the mold. They then give you a temporary crown.

After receiving the temporary crown, you’ll have to wait as the crown is made in a lab. During your second visit, which may take place several weeks later, your dentist will install your crowns.

The Technology Used with CEREC Same-Day Crowns

One benefit of getting CEREC same-day crowns is using 3D/2D imaging. Our imaging includes an intraoral scanner instead of invasive X-rays or messy impression trays to help create the crown molds.

We use Dentsply Sirona, which offers an integrated set of equipment and software. Using an integrated system allows us to work smarter while measuring your mouth and designing and creating your crowns. We design and make your crowns right at our office.

When we fit you for a crown, we use the CEREC Primescan or CEREC Omnicam to take three-dimensional color pictures inside your mouth. These are small devices equipped with special digital cameras allowing us to get exact measurements for the best-fitting crowns.

Next, our CEREC software analyzes the scan and generates restoration proposals. We create the CEREC same-day crowns from a ceramic-resin material with a 3D printer. The whole process is swift and accurate, offering next-level patient care.  

Crowns can make your teeth more robust, visually appealing, and durable.   Choosing same-day CEREC crowns can help you achieve a more beautiful smile that you can enjoy for many years to come.

After Your Visit

After your dentist at Cedars Family Dental places your CEREC same-day crowns, they should last for at least ten years if you properly care for them. You should not feel any pain or discomfort from the crown. If you do, this may mean that the crown needs an adjustment.

Treat your crowns with the same care you would give your natural teeth. Make sure to brush and floss twice a day and use a soft-bristled brush.

Avoiding drinks like soda, coffee, and tea can help your crowns stay as white as possible. If you grind your teeth, your dentist may recommend that you use a retainer to help protect your crowns and teeth. Once you have CEREC same-day crowns, remember to schedule regular dental cleanings. Seeing your dentist is the only way to keep your teeth and mouth healthy.
