What are CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns?

illustration of dental crownsA dental crown is a formed cap that perfectly fits over a prepared tooth. With CEREC technology, we can create and place dental crowns for you in a single visit. We design these crowns to look, feel, and function like a healthy tooth. With CEREC, you do not need a temporary restoration and there are no messy impressions.

We use a digital scanner to create a 3D model of your damaged tooth. That means less discomfort for you and little to no adjustments are necessary, making it a popular restoration choice. Plus, our CEREC crowns are crafted from high-quality porcelain material that looks and feels natural. Our dental office places new crowns and does restorations on existing damaged crowns.

Why Would I Need a Dental Crown?

CEREC crowns can improve oral health and reduce tooth sensitivity. When decay is removed, it typically cannot travel to adjacent teeth or cause further pain. If you have a dental emergency, we can restore your smile quickly and efficiently. Same-day dental crowns can also:

  • Improve a discolored tooth
  • Hold a dental bridge in place
  • Reinforce a cracked or chipped tooth
  • Complete a root canal or dental implant procedure

Advantages of CEREC Crowns

Numerous benefits come with your personalized CEREC crown. That’s because CEREC crowns are made of the highest quality materials, using advanced dental technology. Here are some of the benefits you will enjoy with CEREC same-day crowns:

Easy: All you need to do is schedule a convenient appointment, and you will have your permanent crown placed. Many of our patients find it much more appealing to get the job done in a single dental visit as opposed to receiving a temporary crown in one appointment and a permanent crown two weeks later.

Durable: CEREC crowns are made of high-quality porcelain material. They are resilient and can last for years with proper cleaning and maintenance.

Beautiful: Our porcelain crowns are stain-resistant and will stay white for a long time. They look and feel natural and can significantly improve the appearance of your smile.

Precise: CEREC crowns use modern technological advances in digital imagery and scanning. That allows them to fit with little to no adjustments and provide a comfortable bite. Additionally, the crown reduces discomfort and the need for future work on the tooth.

Do CEREC Same-Day Crowns Cost More?

CEREC same-day crowns do not cost more than regular crowns and only require one visit to our practice instead of two. You won’t have to take extra time off work, and you avoid the cost of a temporary crown and the dental lab. In many cases, your insurance will cover a portion of your same-day crown. When you consider the time and money you save with CEREC same-day crowns, you’ll see that they cost less than you imagined. At Ferrell Family Dentistry, we do everything we can to make your treatments convenient and affordable.

How We Use Advanced Technology for CEREC Restorations

CEREC crowns, veneers, and bridges use CAD/CAM technologically for advanced accuracy and stunning results. We also use intraoral cameras to precisely identify problems and show you the results on our monitors. This allows you to be an active participant in your treatment.

CEREC imaging software allows our dentist to create a 3D picture of any tooth that needs treatment. These images are fed into the computer, where we can view every angle and design a personalized restoration. The design is sent to the milling machine, where a ceramic block is transformed into a crown, veneer, or bridge. The last step is to try on your new prosthetic to ensure fit, and then we cement it securely in place.

Our CEREC restorations can be used with other cosmetic treatments to renew your whole smile. Professional teeth whitening, Invisalign®, and additional procedures can help anyone with extensive dental concerns.
