Dental crowns are caps that are used to cover, conceal, and protect a damaged or unsightly tooth down to the gum line. With CEREC® dental crowns, you can achieve the same satisfaction of regular dental crowns, but with many additional benefits as well. Upgrade, enhance, and improve your smile with CEREC crowns.

CEREC dental crowns can be designed and installed in the same day. With regular dental crowns, a patient’s dental impression needs to be sent to a lab to craft a dental crown, a process which can take weeks to complete. In the meantime, temporary crowns are used, which can often be uncomfortable and poorly fitted. CEREC dental crowns are milled at the dentist office and placed on the same day, thus removing any need for temporary crowns.

CEREC crowns can upgrade your smile by providing you with a durable crown that can last over a decade. If it should happen to be damaged, it can easily be replaced. Not only are the CEREC crowns durable, but so are CEREC dental fillings. With the help of their porcelain material design, CEREC fillings can outperform the durability of similar tooth-colored fillings like composites.
