The Marvels of CEREC Dental Crowns

Close up,Portrait,Of,Yong,Woman,Casual,Portrait,In,Positive,View, Getting a dental crown is a process that usually requires multiple visits to the dentist to get your permanent fixture. It’s time-consuming, inconvenient, and sometimes a nuisance if your temporary crown breaks between appointments or you have a busy schedule. With [link id=’50321′ text=’CEREC dental crowns’], that inconvenience and nuisance is a thing of the past. CEREC offers you a faster and more efficient treatment that is often done in one appointment—not two. Let’s dive into the benefits and process of CEREC dental crowns.

What Are CEREC Dental Crowns?

CEREC dental crowns are custom-made ceramic crowns that are created using computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) technology. Unlike traditional crowns that require multiple appointments over several weeks, CEREC crowns can be created and fitted in just a single visit to the dentist.

The CEREC Process

Digital Scanning

The process begins with the dentist using a specialized camera to capture digital impressions of the patient’s teeth. This avoids the need for uncomfortable, traditional impressions.

Design Phase

The dentist designed the crown using sophisticated CAD software to fit the patient’s tooth precisely. The software allows for detailed customization, ensuring optimal aesthetics and functionality.


Once the design is finalized, the specifications are sent to an in-office milling machine. This machine carves the crown out of a solid block of ceramic material, following the exact dimensions specified by the CAD software.


After milling, the crown is polished and prepared for placement. The dentist then bonds the crown to the patient’s tooth, ensuring a snug fit and natural appearance.

Advantages of CEREC Dental Crowns

Single Visit Convenience

Perhaps the most significant advantage of CEREC crowns is their ability to be fabricated and placed in just one appointment. This saves patients time and eliminates the need for temporary crowns.

Precise Fit

The digital scanning and design process allows for unparalleled precision in crafting the crown. This results in a better fit, reducing the likelihood of discomfort or complications.

Aesthetic Appeal

CEREC crowns are created from high-quality ceramic material that closely resembles natural teeth. This ensures a seamless blend with the patient’s smile, enhancing overall aesthetics.


Despite their expedited production process, CEREC crowns are remarkably durable. They are designed to withstand the rigors of everyday chewing and biting, providing long-lasting restoration.


Ceramic materials used in CEREC crowns are biocompatible, which means they are well-tolerated by the body and less likely to cause allergic reactions or sensitivity.

Conservation of Tooth Structure

CEREC technology enables dentists to preserve more of the patient’s natural tooth structure compared to traditional crown placement methods. This contributes to better long-term oral health.
