CEREC Same-Day Crowns

CEREC, which stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, is an innovative dental technology that enables the creation and placement of dental crowns in a single appointment, commonly known as same-day crowns. Using advanced computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology, CEREC allows  our dentist in Fowler, IN, to design, fabricate, and place custom-made ceramic crowns directly in the dental office, eliminating the need for traditional impressions, temporary crowns, and multiple appointments.

The process begins with digital impressions of the prepared tooth, which are then used to design the crown using specialized software. The design is sent to an in-office milling machine, which fabricates the crown from a block of high-quality ceramic material, matching the color and shape of the patient's natural teeth. Once the crown is milled, it is immediately placed onto the prepared tooth, bonded, and adjusted for proper fit and bite.

CEREC same-day crowns offer numerous benefits, including convenience, efficiency, and precision, allowing patients to restore damaged or decayed teeth in a single visit to the dentist. 

The CEREC Same-Day Crown Procedure 

Digital Impressions 

  • The CEREC process begins with the dentist using a small intraoral camera to capture digital impressions of the prepared tooth or teeth. 
  • These digital impressions are highly detailed and precise, eliminating the need for messy traditional impression materials. 

CAD/CAM Design 

  • The digital impressions are then imported into specialized CAD/CAM software, where the dentist can design the custom crown with unparalleled accuracy and customization. 
  • Using the software, the dentist can manipulate the crown's dimensions, shape, and contours to achieve optimal fit and aesthetics. 

In-Office Milling 

  • Once the crown design is finalized, the data is sent to an in-office milling machine, which fabricates the crown from a solid block of high-quality ceramic material. 
  • The milling process typically takes 15-20 minutes, during which patients can comfortably relax in the dental chair. 

Placement and Bonding 

  • Once the crown is milled, it is immediately placed onto the prepared tooth. 
  • Our dentist at Sheets Family Dentistry carefully bonds the crown in place using dental adhesive, ensuring a solid and durable bond with the underlying tooth structure. 

Final Adjustments 

  • After the crown is bonded, the dentist performs any necessary final adjustments to ensure proper fit, bite, and aesthetics. 
  • This may involve trimming or polishing the crown to achieve the desired shape and contour. 

The Advantages of CEREC Same-Day Crowns 

Efficiency and Convenience 

One of the most notable benefits of CEREC same-day crowns in Fowler, IN, is the unparalleled efficiency and convenience they offer to patients. Unlike traditional crown procedures requiring multiple dentist visits, CEREC technology enables the entire process to be completed in a single appointment.

From digital impressions and crown design to fabrication and placement, patients can enjoy immediate smile restoration without time-consuming follow-up visits. This eliminates the inconvenience of wearing temporary crowns and allows patients to resume their daily activities with minimal disruption. 

Streamlined Process 

CEREC same-day crowns streamline dental restoration, reducing chair time and enhancing patient experience. With traditional crown procedures, patients often had to endure lengthy appointments and wait weeks for their final restoration to be fabricated in a dental laboratory.

In contrast, CEREC technology utilizes advanced CAD/CAM software and in-office milling machines to design and fabricate custom crowns on-site, eliminating the need for outsourcing to a dental lab. This saves time and ensures a seamless and efficient workflow, resulting in faster treatment and superior outcomes. Contact us today to learn more! 

Precise Customization 

Another critical benefit of CEREC same-day crowns is the precise customization they offer. Digital impressions and CAD/CAM technology allow our dentist to design crowns with unparalleled accuracy, tailoring them to each patient's unique dental anatomy and aesthetic preferences. This level of precision ensures optimal fit, comfort, and aesthetics, resulting in crowns that blend in seamlessly with the natural teeth and provide long-lasting results.

Natural-Looking Results 

CEREC same-day crowns are fabricated from high-quality ceramic material that closely mimics the appearance of natural teeth. This enhances the smile's aesthetics and provides a durable, long-lasting restoration that withstands daily wear and tear.

The ceramic material used for CEREC crowns is stain-resistant and highly biocompatible, offering a seamless integration with the surrounding teeth and gums. As a result, patients can enjoy a radiant smile that looks and feels completely natural, boosting their confidence and self-esteem. 

Long-Term Value 

In addition to the immediate benefits of efficiency and aesthetics, CEREC same-day crowns offer long-term value for patients. Their durability and longevity ensure they restore damaged or decayed teeth for many years.

With proper oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups, patients can maintain the integrity of their CEREC crowns and enjoy a healthy, beautiful smile for a lifetime. This long-term value makes CEREC same-day crowns a wise investment in oral health and well-being.
