Dental crowns serve a variety of purposes. They can strengthen a tooth that’s chipped, cracked, or worn down. Or if you’ve had root canal therapy or gotten a dental implant, the treatment is finished with a crown. Crowns can also cover a discolored or misshapen tooth. With traditional crowns, the process can take several weeks. Now, thanks to CEREC technology, your custom dental crown is ready in just one visit!

CEREC Crown Technology

CEREC crown technology allows our team to create custom crowns quickly and efficiently. We can design and mill in-house a crown that looks and fits perfectly! For a natural look, we mill your crown from a block of tooth-colored ceramic. Then we fit, polish, and bond the crown in one visit.

CEREC Crowns vs. Traditional Crowns

The big difference between a CEREC crown and a traditional crown is the technology and speed. With regular crowns, we would take a messy mold of your tooth and send it off to a lab. In the meantime, you would wear a temporary crown, which is never as strong and comes off easily. With CEREC crowns, everything is done in-house and in just one visit. We don’t need to take impressions and you don’t need to wear a temporary crown. The process is faster and more comfortable than never before!

How to Care for a CEREC Crown

No special maintenance is required for your CEREC dental crown. Maintain good oral hygiene like brushing, flossing, and visiting our office for regular checkups. Additionally, avoid tobacco products. With proper care, CEREC crowns can last 15-20 years!
