Dental crowns are valuable appliances that are a highly effective way to protect an impaired or compromised tooth, cover an implant, replace a missing tooth, repair a cracked tooth, and improve the look of any smile. At iTooth Family Dentistry, we offer same-day CEREC crowns to help patients achieve an enhanced and beautiful smile in just one office visit.

What Are CEREC Same-Day Crowns?

Dental crowns are cap-like restorations that can cover a tooth to provide strength and improve its appearance. CEREC crowns fabricated using high-tech dental technology delivering the same functions as that of a traditional crown can be placed in a single session. The process of CEREC same-day crowns is simple and straightforward.

With CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics), there is not much irritation or pain involved, making the process more comfortable and remarkably faster for patients. The porcelain material used imitates the characteristics of natural enamel.

What Is the CEREC Same-Day Crown Process?

We will first carefully evaluate your oral cavity during your visit and determine your suitability for the CEREC process. Once satisfied with all the parameters, we will begin the treatment by taking X-rays and scans. The following steps are included:
  • The tooth will be scanned using a digital intraoral scanner
  • The digital impression of your teeth is transferred directly to our milling unit in the office
  • The CEREC machine fabricates the crown out of a porcelain block in about fifteen minutes
  • The crown is designed to color match your existing natural teeth and polished.
  • The CEREC crown is placed and assessed for correct fit and bite.
  • Once everything checks out, the crown is attached using adhesives. 
  • The entire process is accomplished in about an hour.

What Are the Benefits of CEREC Same-Day Crowns?

CEREC same-day crowns offer patients a healthy, natural-looking smile in just one dental visit. They can enjoy a wide range of benefits from CEREC crowns:
