A Closer Look at CEREC Same-Day Crowns

In the past, patients needed to wait between appointments for their permanent crowns to be ready. Now, your dentist may use CEREC technology for your dental restoration when you visit for restorative dental care in Manassas, VA. CEREC is a computer aided digital scanner and crown milling system that allows your dentist to create your custom crown while you wait and then apply it the same day.

During this process, your dentist will first prepare your tooth for the crown’s placement. Next, he will take a digital scan of your teeth that will produce a digital 3D model. Then, the computer uses this information to design your customized dental restoration. At this point, the design for the crown is sent to the CEREC milling unit, which carves the crown from a ceramic block. After ensuring that the restoration fits properly, your dentist can then stain it to give it a color that matches the rest of your teeth. Finally, your dentist cements the crown in place and adjusts the bite as needed. CEREC same-day crowns make the dental restoration process quicker and more convenient for patients.
