CEREC® Same-Day Dental Restorations
CEREC® (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) technology allows our cosmetic dentists to take a digital impression of your teeth, create custom dental crowns, and bond these restorations into place all in a single day. If you have fractured, chipped, decayed, or damaged teeth, our porcelain crowns can strengthen the structure of your natural tooth while also improving the appearance of your smile. With CEREC® technology, many patients can take advantage of a process that is now faster than ever before.
Benefits of CEREC® Dental Restorations
Same-day CEREC® restorations are a state-of-the-art solution for damaged teeth that can offer many benefits, including:
- Strengthening weak teeth
- Repairing chips, cracks, and tooth decay
- Digital impressions that eliminate the need for messy, uncomfortable molds
- Color-matching for a seamless blend with surrounding teeth
- A precise fit with results that can both look and feel natural
- Fewer visits to the dentist
The CEREC® Dental Crown Procedure
The first step to creating your custom porcelain crown is to prepare the affected tooth. Once this preparation is complete, your dentist will capture a digital impression of the tooth that will be used to mold your crown with a 3D printer. Using CEREC®’s digital scanning technology, our dentists can create crowns that fit your natural tooth more accurately compared to traditional methods. After your crown is complete, the restoration is then bonded into place and given a final polish.
Our advanced porcelain crown technology combined with the experience of our skilled dentists can ultimately make your treatment both successful and convenient!
