CEREC One-Visit Crown Restorations


If you’ve ever needed to get a crown, most likely the process took two visits to the dentist. At the first visit, the dentist examined and prepared your tooth, and a tray filled with a putty-like paste was squished over your teeth so that a dental impression was created. This impression was used to create a crown for you and you would return in 2-3 weeks for the permanent crown to be put into place.

But in our day and age, our patients no longer need to go through this process. With CEREC crown restorations, there are no more putty impressions and no more waiting 2-3 weeks for your crown to be created. Everything can be done in one visit. The crowns are created the same day, right inside our practice. It will be color matched, metal-free, and highly durable. No more two visits to the dentist. Whether you need a full crown, a simple filling, or veneers, it can all be done in a single appointment.

CEREC by Sirona is the only CAD/CAM system that is backed by 30 years of research and development. It is clinically proven with more than 28 million restorations placed worldwide and a proven success rate of 95%. You can rest assured that you’re in good hands.

CEREC uses a state-of-the-art 3D camera to create a digital impression of the affected tooth. This digital image replaces the physical impression of using a tray and paste. Then, using CEREC software, your restoration is designed with precise accuracy and detail, ensuring the best fit possible. Your all-ceramic restoration is then milled in our office, and then we fit, polish and bond your new permanent crown. It’s an easy and smooth process.
