Cerec Same Day Crowns
Cerec uses computer technology to take a 3d picture of the tooth that requires a crown, as well as all of the teeth surrounding that tooth. Using Cerec’s 3D design software, Dr. Allen can design your tooth to fit perfectly in every direction while you’re in the dental chair – no need to construct a temporary crown, take impressions and more importantly . . . no need to wait for an extended time for an off-site dental lab to make and deliver your crown. Once Dr. Allen designs the crown to match the natural shape of your teeth, he makes sure the color matches the rest of your teeth as well. Because Cerec creates the crown from a single block of material (ceramic or resin), it’s considerably stronger than many other types of crowns.
It’s faster, more affordable, stronger and much more convenient for our patients.
