Visit a CEREC Dentist for a New Crown in One Day

Posted on: March 26, 2019

Whereas it typically takes two separate dental visits to receive a dental crown, a CEREC dentist can complete the entire process during the same dental visit. Everyone deserves a smile they feel confident with and a healthy set of teeth, and it is the goal of a CEREC dentist to both effectively and efficiently treat their dental patients.

Visit a CEREC dentist for a new crown

A dental crown is a great way to restore the look, feel and function of a damaged tooth, but the wait between dental visits has unfortunately led many to neglect the care they need. Fortunately, there is no longer a need to wait between visits or wear a temporary crown as CEREC dentists can now do it all effectively on the first visit.

What is a CEREC dentist?

A CEREC dentist has the technology to complete an entire dental crown procedure in a single visit. CEREC – which stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics – is a technology system that allows dentists to prepare the patient’s tooth and generate a precisely fitted crown very quickly, without the need to send the impression to a laboratory for the customization.

Essentially, a CEREC dentist is one that is able to cut out the middle man (the laboratory) and provide patients with effective care and a dental crown in one day.

How the process works

The process a CEREC dentist uses to make a same day dental crown is similar to the traditional two-step process with other dental crowns. After both the patient and the dentist agree to the dental crown treatment, the teeth are prepared by filing down the sides and biting surface of the tooth. After the tooth is prepared, digital images (rather than an impression) are taken of the patient’s mouth, which is then used to create the dental crown on location, and the crown is fitted and placed just moments later.

Benefits of a CEREC dentist

There are many benefits a CEREC dentist can provide including the following:

  • Saves the patient from a second visit
  • Precise technology with accurate results
  • No need for a dental impression
  • No temporary crowns are required

The best and most obvious benefit of a CEREC dentist is their ability to provide patients with a quick and easy procedure – the entire process can be completed in as little as two hours. Another major benefit is that the CEREC technology used is very sophisticated and provides extremely reliable, accurate results.

When to visit a CEREC dentist
