Cerec® Same Day Crowns


CEREC® Same Day Crowns

CEREC® is a computerized scanning, designing, and fabricating device used to make single visit ceramic restorations. Traditionally, if crowns, onlays, inlays or dental veneers were required to restore damaged teeth, multiple procedures and a great deal of waiting time in-between would be inevitable. CEREC® creates these ceramic restorations within minutes in the dental office. This means that many treatments can be completed in just a single visit without messy impressions or temporary restorations.

Advantages with CEREC® include:

  • High-quality ceramic products
  • Minimal invasiveness
  • Less injections and discomfort
  • Cost effectiveness
  • More natural tooth is saved
  • Long lasting restorations
  • Biocompatible solutions
