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 with our technology. That’s where CEREC same-day crowns come in. With fully customized crowns created and placed the same day, you’ll save more time than ever.

Typically dental crowns require construction in a dental laboratory. This 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. 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, this advanced system can take these 3D scans and use them to mill a natural-looking porcelain restoration in just one hour. There’s no need for sending your impressions to a dental laboratory and waiting weeks to enjoy your new smile. With CEREC, you’ll be ready to smile with confidence from the moment you leave our office.
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 to pass the time. At the end of your appointment, you’ll leave our Vincennes office 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.
CEREC same-day crowns offer a variety of advantages, including:
If properly taken care of, CEREC crowns will 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 hard, grinding your teeth, and frequently clenching your jaw.
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:
The cost of a CEREC same-day crown is typically between $500 to $1,500. This price varies from patient to patient depending on insurance plans and details of the procedure. For an accurate estimate, we recommend contacting your insurance provider for any questions regarding your specific coverage.
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.
