Understanding Dental Crowns and Their Purpose

Dental crowns are versatile restorations designed to encapsulate and protect damaged or weakened teeth while restoring their strength, function, and aesthetics. These custom-made caps are crafted to resemble natural teeth and are bonded securely over the existing tooth structure or dental implant. Crowns can help correct a variety of dental issues, including:

  • Severe Tooth Decay: Crowns provide a durable and long-lasting solution for teeth with extensive decay that we cannot effectively restore with fillings or other conservative treatments.
  • Fractured or Broken Teeth: Whether due to trauma, injury, or wear and tear, crowns can effectively repair and reinforce fractured or broken teeth, preventing further damage and preserving the tooth’s integrity.
  • Root Canal Therapy: Following root canal treatment, a crown is often placed over the treated tooth to protect it from future infection and restore its strength and function.

Introducing CEREC Same-Day Crowns

CEREC, which stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, is an innovative CAD/CAM technology that fabricates high-quality dental restorations, including crowns, in just a single appointment. With CEREC same-day crowns, patients can enjoy the convenience of having their restoration completed in a single visit, eliminating the need for multiple appointments and temporary crowns.

Benefits of Crowns and CEREC Same-Day Crowns

The benefits of dental crowns, particularly CEREC same-day crowns, are numerous and include:

Time-Saving Convenience

With CEREC technology, patients can receive their custom crown in just one appointment, saving time and eliminating the need for temporary restorations.

Precision and Accuracy

CEREC same-day crowns are crafted using advanced digital impressions and CAD/CAM technology, ensuring a precise fit and optimal aesthetics for seamless integration with the natural dentition.

Natural Appearance

CEREC crowns are made from high-quality ceramic materials that closely mimic the color, texture, and translucency of natural teeth, resulting in a restoration that blends seamlessly with the smile.

Longevity and Durability

CEREC same-day crowns are fabricated from durable materials resistant to wear and fracture, providing long-lasting results and protecting the underlying tooth structure.

Minimal Discomfort

Unlike traditional crown procedures that may require multiple visits and uncomfortable impressions, CEREC same-day crowns offer a more comfortable and streamlined experience with minimal discomfort and inconvenience.

What to Expect When Getting a CEREC Same-Day Dental Crown

The process of receiving a CEREC same-day crown is simple and efficient, typically consisting of the following steps:

Digital Impressions

Using a handheld intraoral scanner, our skilled dental team will capture highly detailed digital impressions of the affected tooth and surrounding oral structures.

Design and Fabrication

Using advanced CAD/CAM software, the digital impressions design a custom crown that precisely matches the shape, size, and color of the natural tooth.

Milling Process

Once the crown design is finalized, it is sent to an in-house milling unit, where the restoration is milled from a solid block of ceramic material with incredible precision.


After the crown is milled, it is immediately bonded to the prepared tooth, ensuring a secure and durable fit. Our skilled dentists will make any necessary adjustments to ensure proper bite alignment and aesthetics.

Caring for Your Dental Crown

Proper care and maintenance are essential for prolonging the longevity of your CEREC same-day crown. This care includes:

  • Regular Oral Hygiene: Brushing and flossing daily to remove plaque and prevent gum disease and decay.
  • Avoiding Hard Foods: Minimize consumption of hard or sticky foods that can potentially damage or dislodge the crown.
  • Routine Dental Visits: Scheduling regular dental check-ups and cleanings to monitor the health of the crown and underlying tooth structure.
