What is CEREC?
CEREC, or chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics, is a sophisticated new method of performing dental restoration treatments. This machine can be used to take digital impressions that require absolutely no molding material, and then use these digital impressions to create precise dental fixtures in a matter of minutes. At our practice, we use this machine to create veneers and crowns that would otherwise have to be created off site. This requires patients to spend more money and time attending office appointments. In short, the CEREC system helps simplify dental procedures for both our clients and our patients.
What are the Benefits of CEREC Crowns in a Day?
CEREC crowns offer patients a wide variety of convenient benefits that traditional crown procedures just can’t compete with. This procedure can save patients valuable time, money, and stress from start to finish, beginning with the development of the crown. The CEREC machine completely eliminates the need for molding material: all of the impressions are taken digitally.
During typical crown procedures, there is a large gap between when the time when the patient’s tooth is prepared and the time when the crown is successfully placed on the tooth. This can last for as long as 2-3 weeks, and causes many patients a great deal of distress and discomfort. A CEREC crown in a day treatment leaves patients without significant gaps in their smile and without the burden of having to wear a temporary crown that can be uncomfortable.

If you’re in need of a dental crown but don’t have the time to attend multiple dentist visits, the CEREC crown in a day procedure is perfect for you. Nearly anyone who needs to repair a broken or severely misshapen tooth is a candidate for this treatment.
