CEREC SAME-DAY CROWNS
CEREC is the short term for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or CEramic REConstruction. CEREC uses CAD/CAM (computer aided design/computer aided manufacturing) technology to take “impressions” quickly with a camera scanner, and generate a precisely fitted crown.
Traditionally, crowns have taken two visits. On the first visit, the tooth was prepared, and an impression was taken of your teeth. That impression was then sent to a laboratory where your crown was made. Meanwhile, you would wear a temporary crown made with some type of plastic material. On your second appointment, the temporary was then removed, and the crown was placed on your tooth.
With CEREC Crowns, we can now make your crowns IN HOUSE! No more gooey impression material, and no more temporary crowns! For most cases we are able to prep and seat a PERMANENT crown on the SAME DAY!!
This time-lapse video shows our CEREC mill making a crown in just 16 minutes real time!
