Restore Your Smile with CEREC Same-Day Crowns

March 16, 2019
by: Dr. Ammons

If you had the option between achieving a beautifully restored smile over multiple visits or in just one appointment, which would you choose? We think it’s safe to guess you’d definitely want the latter! Thanks to advancements in dentistry, same-day restorations are possible here at Ammons Dental By Design. These restorations are made using CEREC same-day crown technology and keeps you from spending more time at the dentist than is necessary. In this blog post, we dive into the what, how, and why of CEREC, so you can see the possibilities for restoring your smile in mere hours.

About CEREC Technology

CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. Essentially what that means is that CEREC is an in-office system used for the designing and manufacturing of dental restorations. We utilize this technology to craft beautiful dental restorations in-house instead of partnering with an outside laboratory.

With traditional dental crowns, it can sometimes take weeks between appointments to get your custom crown since you have to wait for the lab to make and send back your crown. It’s already tricky enough trying to find a slot in your schedule to visit the dentist for one appointment, let alone multiple. CEREC technology saves you time and stress, and who doesn’t want that?

The Steps of CEREC

With CEREC, we will first take digital images of your mouth, which are then used to create a model of your dental crown. Next, the CEREC milling machine uses that model to produce the crown, right then and there. Then, we affix the crown over your tooth and make any necessary adjustments for a perfect fit on the spot. And that’s it! In just a couple of hours, you can have your smile restored with a natural-looking, well-fitting, permanent dental crown.

The Upside of Same-Day Crowns

The biggest benefit of CEREC same-day crowns is covered right there in their name: same-day. Instead of having to come back to the dentist for a couple of appointments, you can walk into our office and leave that very same day with your entire procedure complete. That means you’ll get to restore your smile faster, enjoy the beautiful results sooner, and get back to your normal routine in no time!
