What are CEREC Crowns?

CEREC crowns are innovative dental crowns designed, created, and installed using computer-assisted technology. Unlike traditional crowns that may take weeks to complete, CEREC crowns can be fabricated and placed in a single visit to the dentist. Made from strong ceramic materials, CEREC crowns offer durability, natural aesthetics, and a precise fit, providing an effective solution for restoring damaged or decayed teeth.


How do CEREC Crowns Work?

CEREC® machine uses 3D imaging software to create an accurate impression of one or more of your teeth. One of our experienced dentists will x-ray and photograph your teeth and capture them with the machine to create a full 3D model of your mouth.

The Computer-Aided-Design (CAD) software will help highlight the areas that require restoration. The imaging is so precise that the resulting dental crown or veneer will fit your mouth exactly, with little to no adjustments necessary. We then implant the dental crown to replace missing or damaged teeth from your mouth.


The CEREC Crown Procedure

CEREC Same-Day Crowns Services in WisconsinThe CEREC crown procedure involves several steps:

  • Digital Imaging: Your dentist will use computer-aided design (CAD) and manufacturing (CAM) technology to capture digital images of your tooth and jaw.
  • Designing the Crown: Using the digital images, a custom crown design is created to match the shape and size of your tooth.
  • Fabrication: The design is sent to an in-office milling machine, which carves the crown out of a solid block of ceramic material.
  • Placement: Once the crown is fabricated, your dentist will ensure proper fit and aesthetics before permanently bonding it to your tooth.

With CEREC technology, patients can enjoy the convenience of receiving a new crown in just one appointment, eliminating the need for messy impressions and temporary crowns.


CEREC Crowns vs Traditional Crowns

What's the difference between CEREC and traditional crowns? CEREC crowns utilize advanced digital scanning and milling to create custom crowns in a single visit. Traditional crowns involve two visits, first for mold impressions and then again for crown placement. By eliminating laboratory fabrication, CEREC produces precisely fitting same-day crowns, reducing headaches of temporaries and second appointments.
