Same Day Crowns CEREC

Request Appointment

Emergencies rarely happen at convenient times. Imagine cracking or chipping a tooth while preparing for a photo shoot, job interview, or wedding. Damaged teeth can throw a wrench in your plans, and if you don’t have a lot of time, you need solutions immediately.

Luckily, advancements in dental technology have made it possible for dentists to create a restoration much faster than ever before.  

CEREC® combines 3D digital imaging, computer-aided design, and manufacturing technology (CAD-CAM). With this technology, your dental crown is designed and perfected digitally before it’s created physically. CEREC® technology allows us to fabricate a permanent same-day crown restoration during a single appointment in our Jupiter office!   

What are Dental Crowns?

A dental crown is a prosthetic cap that replicates the appearance and function of natural teeth. These devices are hollow, so they can fit over a damaged tooth, protecting the structure from future damage while restoring its appearance.  

What is CEREC®?

Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, better known as CEREC®, is the newest and fastest way to have your crown placed. This procedure is done in our office using various computer-assisted technologies, so you can have crowns, veneers, onlays, and inlays done during the same dental visit. Once your procedure is done, you will have a restoration that feels, functions, and looks like your natural tooth.

What are the Uses for Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are used to repair damaged teeth or as the visible element of a dental implant. Common dental health concerns for which a crown is used include:

  • Restoration of worn-out teeth
  • Protection for a weak or cracked tooth
  • Cover a tooth after placing a filling
  • Dress up a stained or misshapen tooth  

What are Same-Day Crowns?  

As the name suggests, these dental crowns can be milled at your dentist’s office on the same day. We use advanced CAD/CAM technology, allowing us to design a custom dental crown digitally, which can then be fabricated on-site in minutes.  

Historically, dentists would have to make a mold of your teeth and send the information to a lab that would create a restoration. The device would then be installed on a different day. Thanks to this technology, we can use the digital model of your tooth to fabricate and place the crown on the same visit.  

What are the Advantages of Same-Day Crowns With CEREC ®?

  • The CEREC ® procedure will help you save time because your restoration is done in one visit rather than multiple – usually in less than one hour.
  • The material is stronger than porcelain crowns.
  • The restorations blend in very well with your natural teeth.
  • More of the tooth structure can be conserved, which sometimes allows for a partial restoration rather than a complete restoration. 
  • Better X-ray detection means we can treat tooth decay earlier.
  • No need for the dentist to make an impression and send to a lab, leading to faster treatment.
