CEREC Same Day Restorations – When Time Is Important

A CEREC same-day restoration is a custom-made porcelain restoration that is created and placed in one visit. With CEREC technology, your dentist can create a high-quality custom dental crown right in our office during your appointment. This eliminates the need for a temporary restoration and a second appointment because the permanent restoration, like a crown, can be made and placed on the same day.

How Is A CEREC Same-Day Restoration Completed?

The CEREC system can design, scan, mill and create your customized ceramic inlay, onlay, or crown within a single appointment! Traditional techniques for creating porcelain restorations are tedious and time-consuming because they require multiple appointments, messy impressions, and concentrated time in the lab. CEREC eliminates the wait between designing your restoration and seeing the finished product. At your appointment, we will take digital impressions of your teeth, which will then be uploaded to the computer for our CAD/CAM software to design the restoration. Once we've designed your restoration, it will be milled from a single block of premium-grade ceramic using our state-of-the-art milling machine. Finally, your custom-made restoration will be permanently bonded to your tooth and polished for a completely natural look and feel. The entire process can be completed within just a few hours. Because CEREC is able to create a single restoration in one visit, you save time by eliminating the need to schedule additional visits to get your dentistry done.

Frequently Asked Questions

CEREC is an advanced dental technology that allows dentists to quickly restore damaged teeth with natural-colored ceramic fillings and crowns in a single appointment. The CEREC system uses computer-aided design and manufacturing to mill restorations from a block of high-quality porcelain, which minimizes your wait time and the number of appointments you need to complete treatment.
CEREC eliminates the need for uncomfortable temporaries or returns visits to have the final restoration placed. Your dentist will design a detailed 3D image of your tooth and use this image to design the restoration. Then, your dentist will use a small camera to take images of your tooth to help determine where to place the restoration within the tooth. When the design process is complete, your restoration will be milled right in our office while you wait. The result is a precisely customized restoration that blends in with the rest of your smile.
If you are self-conscious about having to have a "metal mouth" after making significant improvements to your smile, CEREC same-day dental crowns might be for you! Because they are made from durable porcelain, they look and feel natural and offer the same strength and durability as traditional crowns. Plus, they are completed in just one appointment. You won't have to wait weeks for an uncomfortable temporary crown to wear down, and you won't have to return for multiple appointments to have impressions taken, and a temporary placed while you wait for your permanent restoration. All of this means that you will have a beautiful new smile the same day you have your treatment.
The CEREC system provides one-visit dental crowns, inlays, and onlays. Traditional crowns are fabricated in a dental lab and require at least two visits. During the first visit, the dentist will prepare the tooth and take an impression for the lab to use in fabricating the crown. Then the patient will schedule another appointment to have the permanent crown placed.
With CEREC, the process is much faster. After the dentist preps the tooth and takes a 3D scan of the tooth, he or she will send the file to the in-office milling unit for fabrication. Some patients choose to get same-day crowns to replace older metal fillings. These restorations offer a more aesthetic and durable solution than traditional amalgam fillings. In just one appointment, you can complete your treatment and leave with a brand-new smile. Thanks to CAD/CAM technology, you can have a new restoration without multiple appointments or temporaries.
There are some benefits of getting a CEREC same-day restoration over traditional crowns.
  • Convenience: Getting a CEREC same-day restoration means you won't have to wear a temporary crown between appointments. The permanent crown can be placed in only one appointment.
  • Comfort: Having a CEREC same-day restoration placed means less treatment time because you don't have to wait for the lab to craft your crown. Your dentist can complete your entire treatment process in just one session.
  • Aesthetics: CEREC same-day restorations are crafted from tooth-colored dental porcelain to blend seamlessly with your smile. Once bonded to your tooth, CEREC crowns are virtually indistinguishable from your other teeth.
  • Durability: CEREC same-day restorations are made using the latest technology and materials to ensure durability so you can enjoy your new smile for years to come.
  • Preservation: Using CEREC technology for same-day restoration means that more of your healthy tooth structure can be preserved than with a traditional crown. This can preserve the strength of your tooth as well as prevent premature tooth loss due to decay or fracture.
