What are CEREC same day crowns?
CEREC is an anagram for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic. Using advanced computer-assisted design and manufacturing technology, the CEREC system allows dentists to design and create custom crowns in the office, eliminating a multi-week process to just one appointment. Using 3D and digital imaging, dentists can create a fully functioning smile with minimal pain or downtime.
How are CEREC same day crowns applied?
At South Waterfront Dental, we begin CEREC treatment by taking 3D images of the damaged tooth and use these images to create custom impressions for the crowns. Using design technology, your porcelain crown is designed to blend in seamlessly with the structure color of neighboring teeth. Once Southwest Portland dentist Dr. Todd Beck is satisfied with the final product, the design is sent to our in-office manufacturing machine, where your crown is produced from a solid block of ceramic. When complete, the restoration is placed on the damaged tooth and you are free to resume your daily routine.
