What are CEREC Crowns?
CEREC crowns are crafted from all-ceramic material, which allows them to be customized to meet your exact size, shape, and color needs for natural-looking results. They are precisely crafted in a single appointment using digital impressions of your mouth, CAD/CAM software, and an in-office milling machine.

Traditional vs CEREC Crowns Process
The process to receive a traditional crown is effective; however, it comes with certain disadvantages. After your tooth is prepared, you must hold a messy, foul-tasting material in your mouth for several minutes to create a mold of your tooth. It is then sent to the dental lab where your restoration is made. This can take a couple of weeks, so you need a temporary one while you wait. Once your final crown is ready, you return for a second appointment to have it bonded in place.
CEREC technology creates a seamless process. After your tooth is prepared a digital impression is taken. The information is sent to CAD/CAM software, where it is designed to meet your exact specifications. This removes any room error to avoid any potential delays in restoring your tooth. The specifications are sent to our in-office milling machine, where your crown is cut from a single block of all-ceramic material. In less than one hour it is ready to be bonded to your tooth.
What Makes Someone a Good Candidate for CEREC Crowns?
CEREC is the ideal solution for those who need a dental crown to repair a damaged tooth, like one with a large break or significant decay. It can also help those who need to protect a weakened tooth from breaking or to improve the appearance of one with cosmetic flaws. It is not uncommon to need a crown in combination with other treatments, like a root canal or a bridge.
Understanding the Cost of CEREC Crowns
CEREC crowns can cost more than the traditional method; however, they can be more affordable because you do not need multiple appointments and you do not need to pay for the impression material or the temporary restoration. Often, dental insurances cover a portion of the cost of the restorations to lower the amount you need to pay out-of-pocket.
Caring for Your CEREC Crowns
Your crown can last for an average of 10 years before needing to be replaced if you care for it properly.
- Brush your crown and natural teeth twice a day using a soft-bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste.
- Floss between your teeth and around the crown daily.
- Do not chew overly hard or sticky foods with the crown.
