What Are CEREC One-Visit Dental Crowns?

CEREC crowns allow you to get the high-quality, durable restoration you need in just one day. A digital impression takes the measurements necessary to design your crown using CAD/CAM software. This removes any room for error to ensure it’s right the first time. The information integrates with our in-office milling machine, which cuts your crown from a block of all-ceramic material to mimic the appearance of your natural teeth. The entire process can be completed in a single appointment.

Traditional vs CEREC Dental Crowns Process

The traditional process of receiving a dental crown requires multiple steps and appointments. During the first visit, your tooth is reshaped to allow the restoration to be bonded over it. You must then hold the impression material in your mouth for several minutes. This can be uncomfortable if you have damaged teeth or a strong gag reflex.

After your impression is ready, it’s sent to an off-site dental lab. The lab creates your crown to meet your specifications, which can take a couple of weeks. You’ll need a temporary crown until it’s time to return to the dental office to have your permanent crown bonded to your tooth.

Although this method is effective, CEREC resolves many of the inconveniences of the traditional treatment. After your tooth is prepared, a quick and simple scan of your mouth is taken to get a 3D image of your tooth. CAD/CAM software is used to design your crown to meet your specifications. The information is sent to the milling machine that will cut your crown. In less than an hour, it’s ready to be bonded to your tooth.

Understanding the Cost of CEREC Dental Crowns

There’s no set amount you can expect to pay for a CEREC dental crown because the cost is determined by your individual treatment plan. We work on your behalf with your insurance company to reduce the amount you need to pay out-of-pocket. Depending on your specific policy, your insurance may pay as much as 80% of the cost if used for restorative purposes. We accept a variety of payment options for any remaining balance, like CareCredit.
