Cerec One-Visit Crowns
Cerec technology allows us to custom fabricate Cerec crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays and onlays in one appointment. It uses a highly accurate 3D optical scanner to capture the digital models for the crown design. This replaces traditional impression putty that made some patients gag.
Once we have scanned and made digital models, we have a powerful software program that allows us to custom design the custom Cerec crown restoration. We have a variety of metal-free materials to make our crowns from, depending upon the individual patient’s needs cosmetically and functionally.
When the dental crown design process is complete, the Cerec mill precisely mills the Cerec crown restoration to exacting tolerances. We then apply custom stains if needed to match the patient’s smile and a special oven cures the restoration for maximum strength. We then cement the restoration in place permanently and the patient does not need to have a temporary crown.
