How CEREC Works

CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. What that boils down to is a restorative dental crown created in our office – instead of a dental lab – that we make and place in the same visit, saving you time and money. Thanks to the CEREC software, we can take high resolution and 3D images of your tooth that needs the restoration and design your crown to fit your tooth perfectly. Once we’ve settled on the shape and color of your crown, we send the digital image to our on-site CEREC milling machine. The machine uses the image to create your crown out of the same composite materials as traditional crowns, so it will be just as strong and secure as a crown made in a dental lab. Once it’s ready, we do a fitting to make sure it feels okay and your bite is unchanged, and then we bond the new crown to your tooth. All of this in just one visit to our office! It’s quick and convenient.

Benefits of a CEREC One-Visit Crown

  • No need for messy impression materials and trays
  • No wearing an uncomfortable temporary crown
  • Takes fewer visits to our office — only one!
  • Leaves behind more of your natural tooth structure
  • Looks, feels, and functions like a traditional crown does, which means like your natural tooth

Affordable Crowns in One Visit

CEREC crowns typically cost the same as, or even a little less than, traditional dental crowns because they require fewer visits to our office. If you’re concerned about the cost of your crown, talk with one of our friendly team members about your financial options. Our office is very insurance friendly, and we have in-house financing for our uninsured patients. We will do all we can to help you fit the care you need into your budget. Our same-day crowns can give you back a winning smile!
