While it used to take a couple of weeks to have a dental crown made in an off-site lab, our Grand Rapids dentists use CEREC® same-day technology so the dental crown procedure only takes one visit.
This saves you the hassle of having to deal with a temporary crown while you’re waiting for the permanent crown to be made. Instead of the final product being created over the course of several days or weeks, our dentists can dramatically speed up the process.
Here’s what you need to know about CEREC same-day crowns.
Why Choose CEREC Same-Day Crowns?
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This sounds like a mouthful but refers to the system that uses computer-aided design and manufacturing to create materials for dental restoration.
During your appointment with us, our dentists will use a handheld device to take digital dental impressions. In the past, impressions required having to have a tray of pink goop inserted into your mouth but not anymore. No goop, no gagging, no mess!
Once our dentists have enough pictures of your teeth, we will start to create your dental restoration using a special computer program right in front of your eyes. When the design is complete, our dentists will send it to a milling machine that creates dental crowns from a very strong ceramic material right in our office.
