Aren’t you tired of going to the dentist multiple times to get a crown? Thanks to same-day crown technology, you no longer need to. Also known as CEREC, Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic is the latest invention that lets you walk out of the dental office with a new crown in a single visit.

Dr. Peng at iSmile Dental Group in Columbus, Ohio, has mastered the CEREC procedure and helped revamp the smiles of hundreds of patients. Let’s take a look at how this technology works:

How Does a Same-Day Crown Procedure Work?

Same-day crown or CEREC is a process by which our dentist creates in-office dental restorations. This technology is very useful to quickly repair damage to a tooth caused by an injury or tooth decay.

The procedure uses Computer-Aided Design and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology to create accurate designs based on a digital impression of your teeth. Next, the impression is sent to a 3D printing unit that shapes a crown out of a ceramic block. 

The process is split into three simple steps:

  • Dr. Peng will scan your mouth with a specialized intraoral scanner, allowing her to get an accurate representation of our oral structure.
  • The scanned images are uploaded to a computer software that renders a 3D image of the scan, allowing Dr. Peng to design a replacement crown.
  • Next, the specifications are fed into a milling/grinding machine that cuts a ceramic block to make your customized crown with 100% accuracy.

What Are the Pros of Same-Day Crowns?

CEREC crowns offer several advantages compared to conventional crowns. Let’s take a look at them:

  • Accurate: The same-day crowns created using CEREC are very precise.
  • Done in a Single Visit: The CEREC procedure makes it possible to get the crown done in less than half a day, meaning you don’t have to visit the dentist multiple times to get your new crown.
  • No Stopgap Solutions Needed: With traditional crowns, you would have to wear temporary crowns until the dental lab can prepare the permanent one. With CEREC, there is no need for stopgap solutions.

CEREC is a highly advanced new-age solution to an old crown-related problem. To know more about same-day crowns, get in touch with Dr. Peng at iSmile Dental Group by calling (614) 459-3229 or visiting our office at 1151 Bethel Road Suite #301, Columbus, Ohio 43220.
