CEREC Crowns | Edina MN

Enjoying a meal at your favorite restaurant has quickly taken a turn for the worse when you feel that telltale crack of your tooth as you bite down.

You've been through this before, and you know that you'll likely need a crown. After a visit to your dentist at 50th and France Dental Care, it's confirmed that you do indeed need a dental crown, and you wonder how you'll ever fit this procedure into your busy schedule.

There is good news, however, when you're told that same-day CEREC crowns in Edina make the process of getting a crown much easier, and your treatment will even be completed during one appointment!

Here are three advantages of CEREC crowns over conventional crowns:

Timely and Effective Treatment

CEREC crowns can be completed in one appointment because the milling machine for your crown is located here in our office. What used to take 2 to 4 weeks to complete now can be done during a short appointment, while you wait. This means you'll leave our office the same day with a fully functioning, completed restoration.

A Streamlined Process

We use 3-D technology to scan an image of your tooth and send it directly to the milling machine.

With this technology, we're able to design and customize your crown to our doctors' specifications so you'll receive a quality restoration that will enhance and complement your smile. 3-D technology also streamlines the process so we don't have to take the messy and uncomfortable impressions that we used in the past. This makes the CEREC process much more comfortable for patients.

Quality Technology You Can Trust in Edina

CEREC utilizes high-quality ceramic that can be custom shaded to match your existing teeth. 3-D technology also offers a very accurate impression of your teeth that won't be distorted as can occur during a conventional impression. All these factors help CEREC deliver a quality crown that you can trust for years to come.
