At Herman Family Dentistry, we understand that improving the experience of our patients is paramount. One way we do this is by enhancing the speed and convenience of appointments using advanced dental technology. That’s where CEREC same-day crowns come in. With fully customized crowns created and placed on the same day, you’ll save more time than ever.
Discover more about CEREC same-day crowns with our guide below.
Typically dental crowns require construction in a dental laboratory, which often takes a few days to a few weeks to complete. But at Herman Family Dentistry, we offer same-day dental crowns with the help of the CEREC system. CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic. Among their many advantages, same-day crowns play a major role in streamlining and improving the dental implant process.
During the planning phase of your implant treatment, we’ll use the CEREC Omnicam to generate high-quality 3D images of your entire mouth. These digital impressions help Dr. Herman anticipate any obstacles that could interfere with your implant. As a result, we can customize your treatment plan and perform implant surgeries with unmatched precision.
Best of all, the CEREC system can take these 3D scans and use them to mill a natural-looking porcelain restoration in just one hour. There’s no need to send your impressions to a dental laboratory and wait weeks to enjoy your new smile. With CEREC, you’ll be ready to smile with confidence from the moment you leave our office.
CEREC same-day crowns offer a variety of advantages, including:
At Herman Family Dentistry, we want all of our patients to experience the smile of their dreams. CEREC same-day crowns can be used for multiple reasons and will improve the appearance and function of your smile.
This restoration may be a good fit for you if you’re looking to:
Unlike traditional crowns that take at least two appointments lasting about 90 minutes each, CEREC same-day crowns only take one appointment lasting two to three hours. You’ll have some free time while the CEREC machine mills your new crown, so you may want to bring something entertaining like a book, music, and headphones to pass that time. You’ll leave our Vincennes office at the end of your appointment with your new, permanent crown.
Typically, when your crown breaks you’ll need a new one. Luckily, a replacement crown can quickly be created using CEREC technology. You won’t have to wait with a broken and possibly uncomfortable restoration sitting in your mouth.
If properly taken care of, CEREC crowns typically last between 10 and 15 years. To get the most out of these convenient restorations, patients with same-day crowns should be cautious and avoid:
The cost of a CEREC same-day crown varies from patient to patient depending on insurance plans and details of the procedure.
