What Are CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns?

Same-day dental crowns are customized dental restorations that are made using computer-aided design and manufacturing. Ultimately, they allow us to create your custom crown without needing to send your impressions to a dental laboratory and wait for the final products. Instead, they are crafted right here in our office!

The goal of your same-day dental crown is the exact same as a traditional dental crown that you are familiar with. It is designed to protect teeth that are weak, damaged, or decayed. Unlike traditional dental crowns that require two appointments to be completed, CEREC crowns are crafted and placed on the same day!

The Process of Getting a CEREC Same-Day Dental Crown

The first step when getting a CEREC crown is for your dentist to remove a small amount of enamel from the affected tooth. Most of the time, this is done with a local anesthetic to numb any possible discomfort. Then, your dentist will take digital impressions to generate a 3D model of your tooth. This is sent from the computer to our in-office milling machine. After about an hour, the machine crafts a crown from tooth-colored dental material. This is completely personalized to match the size, shape, and color of your natural tooth. Lastly, we will place the crown and make any needed last-minute adjustments. Once everything looks and feels great, you will be free to go!

The Benefits of CEREC Crowns vs. Traditional Crowns

  • Convenient: You only need to attend one appointment instead of two.
  • No Temporary Crown: When you get a traditional dental crown, you have to wear a temporary one for a couple of weeks. This isn’t as comfortable as your final restoration and lacks durability. CEREC crowns eliminate this part of the process.
  • Cost: You might think that same-day dental crowns are more costly than traditional ones, but this isn’t necessarily the case. Same-day crowns are often comparable to traditional crowns when it comes to the cost.
