Precision and Comfort with CEREC Same Day Crowns

Advances in dental technology allow us the opportunity to offer you SAME DAY crowns, via our newly installed CEREC equipment. CEREC innovative technology allows us to perform a tooth restoration with improved comfort, precision and convenience. Dr. Berry and his staff can now create natural-looking ceramic crowns at our office, in a SINGLE visit! We are committed to offering you the best care available and in the least amount of time necessary for your great results.

CEREC Same Day Crowns Process vs. Traditional

CEREC same day crowns save you time, bring you more comfort while providing you even stronger, more natural-looking, natural-fitting results. Traditional crowns take time to prepare, create and place requiring you to wait a week (or more) in a temporary crown with some pretty specific eating instructions.  Then you have to return to the office to have the new crown fitted and placed.  At times, these crowns, which are fabricated in an offsite lab, do not fit properly when they arrive to the patient due to a bad impression or mistakes by the lab.  This requires you wait even longer for your fixed solution. CEREC eliminates all these hassles. With same day crown placements, we make your impressions digitally, uploading your exact measurements and needs instantaneously to the computer.  Once the computer has received your digital impression we can immediately begin fabricating your permanent crown right in our office with our CEREC technology. We can deliver your permanent crown right in the same appointment.

The Accuracy of Digital Scans vs. Gooey Impressions

With CEREC technology, you can skip the gooey impressions system of the past!  We use a comfortable oral camera–inserted in your mouth–to capture 3-D digital images of your tooth.  The system’s ability to take fast, accurate in-house digital impressions with advanced laser-scanning technology provides Dr. Berry clean, fast, digital scans in just a few minutes through a series of photographic images taken inside your mouth. These precise images are used to digitally design your crown.  After gathering the digital images and impression, the scanned information is electronically sent to our in-house design center where a 3D model of the tooth is created chairside with CEREC technology.  A sophisticated milling machine creates your crown in just minutes from a single piece of porcelain.

Benefits of Same Day Crowns

Some of the amazing benefits you can look forward to with CEREC same day crowns technology include the following:

  • No gooey impressions
  • Camera captures your full dentition in seconds and then transfers this to the computer
  • No temporary crowns (temporary crowns are exactly what the name suggests–temporary. With CEREC the final crown is inserted directly without any temporary compromises needed.)
  • No follow-up appointment
  • One appointment for your crown treatment; no need for follow-up
  • Long-term stability
  • Quality that has been proven millions of times over in the practice.
  • Natural-looking; natural-functioning tooth
    • Due to the translucency of ceramics, the dental crown looks like a real tooth.
    • With CEREC technology, no dark edges are visible as is so often the case with conventional crowns.
    • Ceramic is very close to the hardness of the natural tooth, thus preventing wear of the tooth
    • Ceramic is hypoallergenic
    • CEREC technology fosters a gentle experience for your teeth. Only the carious tooth surface is removed. The remaining healthy tooth substance is preserved.

Your Dentist Designs Your Tooth – Not an Offsite Lab

CEREC same day crowns allow Dr. Berry to be the designer of your custom crown. With you there, he is able to ensure that the new crown blends with the color of your natural teeth, and that it functions with the strength (and comfort) that you need. CEREC same day crowns technology allows him–not some offsite lab tech–to choose the color, shape, and biting/chewing surface for your permanent restoration.  Since the crown is milled right in our office, immediate changes that are necessary can be made right then. Treating the tooth, prepping it for the crown, making the new crown and placing it can take as little as 60 to 90 minutes depending on the size and scope of your decay.  Once the crown and tooth restoration is finished, Dr. Berry will assess it for appearance, functionality, and fit then cement it and you are done.  Traditional crowns don’t come close to providing you with this kind of experience.  CEREC same day crowns offer you accuracy, flexibility and efficiency that can’t be beat!
