Same Day CEREC Crowns
Getting a crown used to be a long, drawn-out process. The crown had to be made in an outside lab, which could sometimes take two weeks or longer. While the crown was being manufactured, a temporary crown would protect the teeth, but these temporary crowns can come loose or break just through regular use. When the crown was finished, placing it required a second visit to the dentist.
With the CEREC system, crowns no longer have to take weeks, but can be made in minutes! CEREC uses CAD (computer aided design) software and intraoral photos to create a 3-D model of your mouth, and then your customized crown is milled right in our office.
