What are CEREC crowns?

Dental Crown | Dentist Tucson AZIf you have ever had a crown placed, you know the drill; visit the dentist to have the tooth prepared and have impressions taken, wait about two weeks while you deal with a temporary crown, and then make a second visit to have the final crown adjusted for fit and placed on the tooth.

Most people accept that this is the only way, but it’s not. With CEREC same-day crowns in Tucson, AZ, you can have the entire procedure completed in one visit to our office.

The first few steps for placing CEREC are similar to those for a lab-fabricated crown. But instead of messy impressions, Dr. Michael Allen takes digital images that are used to generate a 3-D model of your teeth that he uses to design your new crown in a software program.

The details are sent to a milling machine in your office where your crown is fabricated from a block of porcelain. The crown is then checked for fit, adjusted, and cemented in your mouth just as a lab-fabricated crown would be.

But there are no multiple visits and no two-week wait. You won’t need to wear a temporary crown, and you will leave our office the same day with a fully customized porcelain crown.

If you need a crown but want to avoid the hassle, please call Sabino Hills Dentistry. We will be happy to arrange a consultation with Dr. Allen so he can explain the CEREC process to you in detail.
