Your Crown is Completed in One Appointment
You may have had a need for a crown in the past and went through
all the steps to have the procedure completed. First there is
the preparation of the tooth, then an impression, and while your
permanent crown is being made, a temporary restoration is placed
in your mouth. After a two-week waiting period, you go to the
dentist again for the installation of the permanent crown.
Sometimes it does not fit properly and is sent back to the lab,
which results in more waiting time for you. And then there is
one more visit to the dentist.
will be very pleased to know that technology has changed what
was formerly a time-consuming procedure. With CEREC™ technology,
you can receive a crown from start to finish in just one visit.
CEREC is a milling device that provides a computerized design to
give you the perfect-fitting crown. It does so in just a matter
of one appointment! No return visits or waiting! Our patients’
reactions – they love it!
The entire procedure with CEREC takes about an hour. There are

the CEREC technology, we apply a reflective powder on the tooth.
With a high-tech camera, a picture is taken and immediately
ready for viewing on a computer screen. We initially design the
crown and CEREC creates it. The crown is then bonded to the
remaining tooth structure. What could be faster and easier?
