CEREC One-Visit Crowns

Dental crowns encase and restore teeth that are damaged, misshapen, or have had root canals, and they’re also used with dental implants and bridges. Traditional crowns involve multiple steps at your dentist office and can take several weeks. But a CEREC dental crown is a one-step alternative that saves time and eliminates the inconvenience of a temporary crown that may break, fall off, or cause tooth sensitivity.

The Procedure for CEREC Dental Crowns in 61265

Your dentist can create CEREC crowns in Moline, IL, instead of sending it out to a lab, which is required for traditional crowns. After your dentist takes a digital “impression” of your teeth, a model of the crown is created using computer-aided design (CAD) technology. Your dentist then mills the CEREC crown out of high-grade, stain-resistant ceramic or porcelain and bonds it to your tooth in the same appointment.

How long does it take?

With CEREC crowns in Moline, IL, you can have a custom-shaped crown that complements your natural teeth color in about two hours. This state-of-the-art digital technology ensures a precision fit using durable material that lasts for years.

Do CEREC dental crowns look natural?

CEREC crowns provide natural, beautiful-looking teeth more conveniently and efficiently than traditional crowns. While traditional dental crowns are still a good option for some patients, CEREC crowns are a popular alternative you can discuss with your dentist in Moline.
