CEREC® Same-Day Crowns

Revolutionizing Restorative Dentistry with CEREC® Technology

At CRE8 Smile Studio, we embrace innovation for your convenience and care. Our CEREC® (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) technology streamlines the process of receiving dental crowns, allowing us to design, create, and place your custom crowns in just one visit.

What Is CEREC® Technology?

CEREC® is a state-of-the-art system that enables us to fabricate precise, tailored ceramic dental crowns right in our office. This cutting-edge technology uses computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) to offer a faster, more comfortable experience for our patients.

The Advantages of CEREC® Crowns

  • Speed: Complete your crown placement in a single visit, eliminating the need for temporary crowns and multiple appointments.
  • Precision: Digital impressions taken by CEREC® are highly accurate, ensuring a perfect fit for your crown.
  • Quality: CEREC® crowns are made from high-quality ceramic material that mimics the strength and appearance of natural teeth.
  • Comfort: Digital impressions with CEREC® are more comfortable than traditional impression materials.

The CEREC® Crown Process

  1. Consultation and Planning: We begin with a thorough examination of your tooth using digital imaging technology.
  2. Digital Impressions: A digital impression of your teeth is taken, which is more comfortable than traditional methods.
  3. On-Site Crafting: Your custom crown is designed with the CEREC® software and milled in our office from a block of high-quality ceramic.
  4. Placement: The crown is then expertly fitted, adjusted if necessary, and bonded to your tooth—all within the same appointment.

Caring for Your CEREC® Crown

Caring for a CEREC® crown is like caring for your natural teeth. Regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups will help ensure the longevity of your new crown.

Is a CEREC® Crown Right for You?

CEREC® crowns are ideal for patients needing a quick and effective solution for damaged or decayed teeth. They are perfect for busy individuals who prefer to minimize their time in the dental chair while still receiving high-quality care.

The CEREC® process involves taking a digital impression of your tooth using a special camera. This image is then used to create a 3D model of the crown on a computer. The design is sent to an in-office milling machine that carves the crown from a ceramic block. The crown is then adjusted for fit and cemented onto your tooth.

The main benefits of CEREC® crowns include:

  • Time Efficiency: The entire process is completed in one visit, saving you time.
  • No Temporary Crowns: Eliminates the need for temporary crowns and a second appointment.
  • Precision and Comfort: Digital impressions are more precise and comfortable than traditional methods.
  • High-Quality Material: The crowns are made from durable, tooth-colored ceramic.

The entire process of getting a CEREC® crown, from digital impressions to placement, typically takes about one to two hours.

Yes, CEREC® crowns are made from high-quality ceramic and are designed to be as durable and long-lasting as traditional lab-made crowns.

CEREC® crowns are made from tooth-colored ceramic, allowing them to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth in terms of color and shape.

CEREC® crowns require the same care as your natural teeth, including regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental checkups.

The procedure is generally not painful, as it is performed under local anesthesia. You may experience some sensitivity after the procedure, but this is typically mild and temporary.

CEREC® is versatile and can be used to create a variety of crowns, inlays, and onlays. However, there may be some cases where traditional crowns might be more appropriate. We can determine the best option for you during your consultation.
