A Crown In ONE Appointment

A DENTAL CROWN IS A CRITICAL COMPONENT IN A NUMBER OF DENTAL PROCEDURES. They are a proven, effective way to help restore your smile, preserve the integrity of your mouth’s structure, and maintain great oral health. Our practice offers you—our valued patients—a dental crown procedure that is far more comfortable and less time consuming. It’s called the CEREC method.

CEREC Benefits From A Patient’s Point Of View

We love having the CEREC solution in our practice because our PATIENTS love it! Why? Because before, crowns were completed in multiple visits. During the first visit, after a tooth impression was taken, a dental lab made the crown while you wore a temporary crown for a couple of weeks. CEREC crowns are completed in one visit. And, they’re not only faster, but they’re beautiful and strong too.

Dr. Brenner Adds…

“We respect our patients’ time and understand that many of them have taken time out of their schedule to come in and see us. Let’s face it, a visit to the dentist isn’t always number one on someone’s list of fun activities. Prior to this technology, patients would need to set aside hours for 2-3 separate appointments spanning over two to three weeks. In the meantime, they would have to wear temporaries.

The CEREC crown is a machine-generated crown that results in a more precise fit. With this capability, patients are now able to receive a completed crown in one two-hour appointment. It is a more efficient use of everyone’s time. It is also less wasteful in that we’re not having to make and discard temporaries.

Patients appreciate the fit of the CEREC crown and the technology used in creating it. Many of our patients like to take a look at the machine and learn how it works.”

The Procedure Is Very Straightforward

Sometimes, dental crowns are used to protect teeth that are weak, cracked, or otherwise in danger of breaking by forming a protective layer around the tooth. If a tooth has a large filling, or is already broken, or is naturally misshapen or discolored, a dental crown can also be used. Dental crowns are also used with dental bridges and dental implants to form and support other teeth in your mouth.

An infrared camera takes 3-D images of your damaged tooth and sends those images directly to our CEREC machine. Your crown is milled inside the machine right here in our office, providing us with the ability TO COMPLETE YOUR PROCEDURE THE SAME DAY! No annoying impression trays, no waiting on a lab, and no temporary crown.
