What Are CEREC® Same-Day Crowns?
Having to wait for something is a pain, right? Especially when it involves dental work!
In the past, getting a dental crown meant having to make several visits to our office and then, waiting for your crown to be fabricated by an outside lab. Not any more! CEREC® same-day crowns have changed everything!
CEREC® is the latest in digital dental technology. It allows us to make precise, comfortable, and fabulous dental restorations right here in our office.
By using cutting-edge CAD/CAM technology, we can take digital impressions of your tooth that are sent to an in-office CEREC® milling machine. In just a matter of minutes, the CEREC® machine can create a beautiful crown.
Instead of having to wait for weeks for your crown to come back from the lab, you can leave our office with your new crown placed and ready to go!
Why Our Patients Love CEREC® Crowns
A digital 3D image of your new tooth is created using our CAD/CAM system. This blueprint for your new tooth is sent to the CEREC® machine, which creates the new tooth. The result? A precise and comfortable restoration.
We use the finest porcelain for your crowns. It mimics the natural luster of your own teeth and is custom-tinted to blend in beautifully with the rest of your smile.
The CEREC® system uses only digital impressions to create your restoration, which means there is no longer any need for goopy, messy impressions. Hooray!
The porcelain used for your new crown not only looks good, but it is also extremely durable. Your damaged tooth will be restored to its former strength, and with the proper care, will last for decades.
CEREC® same-day crowns eliminate the need for repeated visits to our office. You can save yourself the expenses of extra office visits.

FAQs About CEREC® Same-Day Crowns
- Why would I need a dental crown?
When a tooth is too damaged to be repaired with a filling, a dental crown can restore the strength and the health of the tooth while avoiding the need for an extraction. A dental crown is most commonly needed to:
- Rebuild a decayed tooth
- Strengthen a broken tooth
- Cover a discolored tooth
- Fix a chipped tooth
- Complete a dental implant
Crowns protect and beautify damaged teeth and restoring them to full function.
- How long will a CEREC® crown last?
Same-day crowns are made with extremely durable materials and can last for decades if properly maintained.
It’s important to keep the tooth and gums healthy with an excellent at-home hygiene routine and to see your dentist for regularly scheduled maintenance visits.
Also, it is wise to avoid eating hard foods, like ice chips, that could chip or crack your crown.
- Are same-day crowns covered by my insurance?
We would need to check on the terms of your specific insurance carrier, but generally, yes, treatment with crowns is covered by dental insurance. Crowns are considered standard dental treatment for promoting good oral health. Most dental insurances will cover all or part of the treatment.
