When do you need a dental crown?
Crowns are the most common restorative dental procedure in the United States because of the solution it offers for so many dental problems, such as root canals and advanced cavities that leave holes that weaken teeth. We place crowns to protect and support teeth that are vulnerable, including those that are broken, fractured, misshapen, weak, and stained. Teeth grinding is another reason you may need a tooth repaired by a crown. Crowns fix damaged teeth by restoring their original function and appearance.
How long does it take?
Traditional dental crowns require two appointments. When it comes to CEREC crowns, the process is much quicker because we get get it all done in one visit. However, despite that fact that CEREC crowns are much quicker, they still require some time as your crown must be designed and formed in our in-house dental laboratory while you wait. When you call to schedule your appointment, we will give you an estimate of what to expect.

Key Benefits Of Dental Crowns
- Replaces missing teeth
- Offers support to misshapen teeth or badly broken teeth
- Looks completely natural
- Fixes “smile” and functional chewing problems.
Crafting and placing your crown in just one visit is not an exaggeration. All in a day’s work, we take a digital impression of your tooth and send it to our in-office CEREC machine which immediately designs a dental crown and sends it to our milling machine. Once your replacement crown is complete, we test it and make any necessary adjustments, before it is glazed.
CEREC crowns look as nice and natural as traditional crowns, yet they take a fraction of the time and effort required of their counterparts. There’s no longer a need to wait days or weeks for crowns to be made. And this convenient benefit also eliminates the burden of multiple-visit scheduling.
Boasting two decades of clinical research and practical experience to support its success, the CEREC single-visit approach has been used to perform more than eight million restorations worldwide. Our dentists use high-quality ceramic material to match the natural color of your teeth as they implement the advanced CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) system: a camera, computer, and milling machine, all in our on-site dental lab.
Our dentists use a special camera to take accurate impressions of your damaged tooth which are transferred and displayed on a color computer monitor where they apply CAD technology to design the restoration. CAM automatically creates a flawless restoration for your tooth.
Since the CEREC approach is done in one visit, there is only one numbing process and one placement process. That means fewer injections than are traditionally required for the placement of crowns. What’s more, CEREC patients are not sent home with a temporary crown because we place their permanent restorations right then and there. This eliminates any possibility of discomfort that can result from leaving the tooth vulnerable.
If you are wondering if the speed of the CEREC method might reduce the quality of our crowns, nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, CEREC crowns are made of an advanced ceramic composite that contains alumina which ranks just under diamonds on the hardness scale. In the constructing of your replacement tooth, alumina is softened by blending with other ingredients, giving it a translucency that looks like your natural enamel and a durability that lasts a lifetime yet isn’t so hard that it wears away your natural neighboring teeth.
