At Herman Family Dentistry, we understand that improving the experience of our patients is paramount. One way we do that is by enhancing the speed and convenience of their appointments with new technology. That’s where CEREC Same-Day Crowns comes into play. With fully customized crowns created and placed the same day as your dental visit, you’ll save more time than ever. Discover more about the advantages CEREC brings.
Traditional crowns typically require construction in a laboratory setting. This often takes a few days to a few weeks to complete. But Herman Family Dentistry takes it one step further, offering same-day dental crowns with the help of the CEREC system. Among their many advantages, same-day crowns play a major role in streamlining and improving the dental implant process.
Crowns have been a part of dentistry for a long time, but prior to CEREC, the process was much less convenient for patients. Before CEREC, the doctor would start by taking an impression of your teeth which required you to bite into dental putty to form a mold. Your first appointment would end with a temporary crown, as your mold was taken to a lab to form your new one. With same-day crowns, many of these steps are eliminated for a quicker and more convenient experience.
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics and includes an intraoral camera system, virtual programs, and a milling machine. Our CEREC machine takes hundreds of photos of your tooth (or implant) that requires a crown and creates a model that fits it best. Once finished, we send the virtual model to the milling machine and create your crown right here in-office. The entire process takes only a few hours, so patients can leave with a brand new crown.
CEREC Same Day Crowns are just one more way that we make your dental appointment easier and more convenient. With no more need for messy molds or multiple appointments, CEREC allows our dental team to produce top quality porcelain dental crowns that look just like natural teeth, and since they’re customized to your mouth, they fit perfectly. Come experience how our technology makes your life a little easier – contact Herman Family Dentistry today.
If taken care of properly, CEREC crowns typically last between 10 to 15 years. To get the most out of these convenient restorations, patients with same-day crowns should be cautious — avoid biting down, grinding your teeth, and frequently clenching your jaw.
