CEREC Same Day Crown


Dental assistant assisting with CEREC technologyCrowns are placed on your teeth after they are too badly damaged to be repaired by any other dental procedure. If our professionals feel your tooth is too decayed, weakened, or chipped to be repaired naturally, we may suggest you get a dental crown to ensure the longevity and functionality of your tooth. However, traditional crown procedures can take over two weeks to complete and require two visits to complete. A CEREC crown helps alleviate the stress of waiting to get a crown by offering a same-day crown, minimizing the trips needed to finish the procedure. Here at Stansell Dentistry Associates, we offer same-day CEREC crowns to those who want immediate results with their brand new tooth.

What Are the Benefits of a CEREC Same-Day Crown?


CEREC is an acronym that stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. It has become a new gold standard of care for those seeking more instant results with their crown. When you get a traditional crown, you are required to wait up to two weeks, from start to finish, to get the procedure completed. This is because a crown requires our professionals to get a perfect mold of your tooth to create the crown. After the mold is taken, it is usually shipped off to be made off-site at another facility. This can make the wait extremely taxing since you are often fitted with a temporary crown. While it does prevent infection and bacteria, a temporary crown can alter your daily life until the permanent crown is placed. CEREC crowns remove this unnecessary step for you.

CEREC crowns are not only efficient with time, but they also create a more realistic, natural-looking tooth. Most people will not be able to tell you are wearing a crown since it lacks a metal core. CEREC-created crowns have also been researched intensively and studies show that they are not only sturdier than their counterpart, they also resist abrasion. This means you will have a more durable crown that has a more likely chance of lasting permanently after being placed.

What Is the Procedure for a CEREC Crown?


CEREC crowns use computer-aided design (CAD) and manufacturing (CAM) that captures an image of your jaw, tooth, and crown design. These are used to create a crown in the office on the same day, taking only around fifteen minutes to manufacture on-site. This allows you to be in and out of the dentist's office in one day with a completed crown.

While the crown is being made, your dentist will trim your tooth down to create the base for the CEREC crown. This requires shaving off the top and side of it to be a perfect fit for the crown. The crown is then placed around the surrounding tooth, where you and our team will work with it to make it feel and look like your surrounding teeth. Once you are both in agreement, our dentist will cement the CEREC crown over the existing tooth. A quick polish will help it feel and look more natural once it has dried completely.

If you are interested in reducing your time at a dentist's office, then a CEREC crown is an ideal option. Our Stansell Dentistry Associates office is here to help you. Call us at 984-477-0177 to schedule your appointment.
