One Appointment Crowns, At Your Fingertips
Your time is precious. That is why we have invested our time and talents into making one appointment crowns a reality for all patients. With CEREC technology, patients can now have crowns that are beautiful and strong in less than half the time and trouble previously required. Beauty, Form, and Function, all in one appointment!
How CEREC Crowns Work
CEREC crowns do not require impressions. Instead, a special camera is used to take optical images of the teeth. The computer then constructs a virtual model of your teeth on which we design your crown. All ceramic materials stand out for their extremely aesthetic, natural appearance, and long-lasting quality.
The computer model is sent to the milling station which sculpts the restorative material to custom specifications. On-the-spot fine-tuning provides for less contact between the teeth and a better bite.
While the crown goes through a half hour firing process, you can relax, read, surf the web, or get some work done. Rarely do adjustments need to be made to the crowns after they are fired.
Strong Teeth, Natural Look
IPS Emax material is used in our CEREC crowns. This material combines strength and beauty unlike any other dental restorative. Its unique lithium disilicate ceramic provides ideal strength, yet gentle wear against the opposing teeth.
Your one appointment crown is a custom stained and finished Emax crown. The firing process crystallizes the material, maximizing its hardness and bringing it to a realistic sheen. There is no metal core, allowing light to shine through – just as it does through natural teeth. These crowns are designed, milled, and seated in one visit!
