CEREC Dental Crowns

There never seems to be enough time in the day to accomplish everything that needs to be accomplished, especially when it comes to dental work. We understand, so Dr. Dale Spencer and Dr. Jamison Probst have incorporated time-saving CEREC® technology into our practice to bring you quality, convenient dental solutions. This advanced dental technology now allows us to create custom crowns and bridges in as little as just one appointment, and the benefits don’t stop there.

Dental Restorations in Just One Convenient Visit

CEREC allows us to create dental restorations in just one convenient visit to our office, eliminating the need for temporaries. Traditionally, a temporary piece would be fitted until the permanent was created at an outside lab. Now, in just one visit, Dr. Spencer can take an impression of your teeth without any messy, uncomfortable molds, and create a custom-designed dental crown or bridge. Because of its advanced capabilities, CEREC restorations are highly accurate in fit and completed within an hour.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a CEREC Same-Day Crown?

CEREC same-day crowns use CEREC technology to create dental crowns in a single day. While traditional crown installations usually take a few weeks, you can get your CEREC crown designed, made, and placed in just one visit to the dentist’s office. This process is highly efficient and simple to boot.

How Long Does a CEREC Crown Last?

Since CEREC dental crowns are usually crafted from ceramic, they are incredibly durable and can last around 10 to 15 years on average. However, the exact time may vary from person to person. You can also extend their lifespan by following proper care instructions.

What Are the Benefits of CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns?

CEREC is incredibly popular with dentists and patients alike. There is a good reason for this. Same-day CEREC crowns come with several advantages, including: 

  • High-degree precision 
  • Reduced waiting period 
  • Not having to deal with the hassles of temporary dental crowns 
  • Natural-looking, customized finish 
  • Non-invasive procedure

How Can I Take Care of My CEREC Crowns?

Taking care of CEREC crowns is crucial if you want them to last you a long time. Here are a few CEREC crown after-care tips to follow. 

  • Wear a nightguard to prevent grinding or clenching your teeth
  • Do not chew on hard objects 
  • Brush regularly with a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste 
  • Limit sugar and staining foods in your diet 
  • Visit your dentist at least once every six months for a routine checkup

Are CEREC Crowns Covered by Insurance?

Although each dental insurance plan is different, many offer the same benefits for CEREC crowns as they do for traditional crowns. Your insurance provider may cover part or whole of the procedure, depending on the terms of your policy. It’s best to talk to your insurer to fully understand if you qualify for CEREC dental restorations.
