Did you know that a dental crown can be diagnosed, created, and installed all in the period of a single office visit? This process is possible with the amazing technology used with CEREC® dental crowns. A CEREC® crown is not sent out for to a lab, which can take weeks to receive, but rather is milled directly in the dentist office with a specialized computer.

CEREC® dental crowns are used to cap or conceal problematic teeth that are damaged or unsightly. In some cases, CEREC crowns can be used to save teeth that otherwise would need to be extracted. Not only will CEREC crowns save your teeth from extraction, they can prevent further damage from occurring to the tooth in the future.

CEREC crowns are first implemented by finding out the exact needs of a patient. Once a patient’s need for a crown is known, a dental impression of the exact tooth is used and imputed into a computer for a precise data set that can give the user a nearly flawless match for a dental crown. If need be, your dentist can shade and shape the crown to fit your tooth color profile and shape. The crown can fit perfectly in your mouth to not only cap the tooth that needs to be treated but it potentially can be used to fix any spacing issues or minor misalignments nearby.
