Crowns Made While You Wait
You may have had a crown placed in your mouth in the past. So you are familiar with the routine of
having to wear a temporary, waiting for the permanent crown to be constructed by an outside lab, and
then returning to the dentist to have it placed. If it doesn’t fit quite right, you repeat the
uses CEREC™ technology to give you a perfect-fitting crown. The best part is that
it’s done in just one visit! This system uses a computer program to design and construct the restoration.
It creates the crown in just minutes! The complete process from beginning to end takes only about an
hour. This means only one trip to the dentist and a lot less waiting. Our patients tell us they love
both the natural look and the function of the restorations.
We begin the procedure by using a special camera to take an image of your tooth that we can view on our
computer. This allows us design the crown, which the CEREC machine then automatically mills. The final
step is to bond the crown to the remaining tooth structure. What could be faster and more convenient
having a crown made with CEREC?
There’s no charge for a consultation to learn about CEREC one-visit crowns. Call us at (708) 599-2929 to
