CEREC Same Day Crowns

Share:

Maplewood Dental Associates is proud to provide our patients with same-day crowns, one of the leading advancements in modern cosmetic dentistry. Using CEREC 3D Technology, our dentists are able to conveniently manufacture ceramic dental restorations for our patients in one treatment session. CEREC makes it possible to design, fabricate and place a crown for a patient all in the same day!  

What is CEREC?

CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. Translated, it means that our dentists are able to efficiently restore damaged or decayed teeth in a single chairside session. CEREC uses high-quality ceramic material that matches the natural color of your teeth, making it virtually impossible for others to differentiate the crowns from your real pearly whites.

What can I expect from using CEREC?

Using some of the most advanced technology in the dental industry, CEREC incorporates a camera, computer and milling machine into one instrument. First, the decay or old filling will be removed from the tooth that needs to be treated. Next, your dentist will use a special camera to take a 3D photograph of the tooth, eliminating the messiness and inaccuracies of a traditional restoration. This 3D model is then transferred and displayed on the CEREC computer screen, where your dentist uses computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology to design and create the restoration. Finally, the restoration is bonded to the tooth and checked for position, placement and bite function. The entire process takes about one hour, and you get to leave our office with your new permanent restoration. No need for temporary crowns or follow-up appointments!
