What Are CEREC® One-Day Crowns?

CEREC® One-Day Crowns are a type of dental crown that can be made and placed in just one dental appointment, instead of the usual two appointments required for traditional dental crowns. CEREC® (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) technology allows dentists to use computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) to create a 3D image of the tooth.

The information is used to create a customized ceramic crown in the dental office. This eliminates the need for a temporary crown and a second appointment to place the permanent crown, saving patients time and inconvenience.

Top 3 Advantages of One-Day Crowns

One-day crowns are an excellent option for individuals with a busy schedule and imperfect teeth or those in need of restoration. In addition to their time-saving convenience, same-day crowns offer numerous benefits compared to traditional crowns. Some of these advantages include:

  1. Superior Imaging — CEREC uses a small intra-oral camera to take digital impressions of your teeth and mouth, resulting in greater accuracy.
  2. Quick & Easy — Advanced computer technology allows Dr. Ruehle to quickly mill, shape, and fit your crown in just a few minutes.
  3. Durable & Long-Lasting — CEREC crowns are made using different materials that enhance their durability, making them stronger than your natural teeth.

While traditional crowns can also be made of ceramic, same-day dental crowns are created in just a few minutes using computer technology, whereas traditional methods may take weeks or even months.

Ideal Candidates for CEREC® One-Day Crowns

One-day crowns can be an excellent option for a variety of individuals. Here are some characteristics that make someone an ideal candidate:

  • Busy Lifestyle: If you have a busy schedule and don't have a lot of time for multiple appointments, our one-day crowns are perfect for you. With CEREC technology, you can have your crown completed in just one visit, saving you time and hassle.
  • Cracked, Chipped, or Damaged Teeth: CEREC crowns restore teeth damaged due to cracks, chips, or other issues. If you have a tooth that requires repair, a same-day crown can quickly and effectively restore its natural appearance.
  • Discolored or Misshapen Teeth: If you have teeth that are discolored or misshapen, our crowns can improve their appearance. The advanced technology used in CEREC crowns allows for precise color matching and shaping, so your new crown will blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth.
  • Limited Dental Anxiety: While CEREC technology makes the process of getting a crown much faster and more convenient, it’s still important to have a certain level of comfort with dental procedures. Ideal candidates for one-day crowns should be able to tolerate the necessary steps involved in the procedure, such as taking digital impressions and receiving local anesthesia.
  • Good Oral Health: To be an ideal candidate for CEREC crowns, you should have good oral health overall. This means you should have healthy gums and teeth that are free from decay or infection. If you have any underlying oral health issues, they’ll need to be addressed before you can receive a one-day crown.

CEREC Treatment Process

Once you've had your initial consultation, you can begin your CEREC treatment at your next appointment. This is a quick and easy process that involves just a few simple steps:

Crown Preparation

First, Dr. Ruehle will clean and prepare your tooth for the crown. Next, he’ll use an intra-oral camera to create detailed digital 3D images of your teeth, allowing for the precise fabrication of your custom crown.

Crown Placement

Once Dr. Ruehle has made any necessary touch-ups, a milling machine will shape the crown using the digital impressions as a guide. Finally, the beautiful, porcelain crown will be directly attached to your tooth using a strong dental resin.

If you're looking for a fast, effective way to protect and strengthen a damaged tooth, a CEREC one-day crown could be the perfect solution. Contact Garden Oaks Family & Cosmetic Dentistry today to learn more and schedule your appointment.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I care for my CEREC one-day crown?

Caring for your CEREC dental crown is as simple as taking care of your natural teeth. Good oral hygiene includes brushing your teeth at least twice a day, flossing regularly, and rinsing between meals. Dentists recommend using a soft-bristled brush and non-abrasive toothpaste to prevent scratching your new restoration. It’s also best to schedule a dental check-up and cleaning every six months, or twice a year.

My CEREC crown broke/fell out. What should I do?

If your dental crown has become damaged, it’s important not to worry and don’t attempt to repair it yourself. Contact your dentist’s office as soon as possible so they can assess the damage and determine the best course of action.

Are CEREC one-day crowns right for me?

CEREC one-day crowns are a great solution for patients looking for a restoration that:

  • Is custom-made to match the shape, color, and feel of your existing teeth
  • Only requires one appointment, making it a more cost-effective solution
  • Is stronger and just as translucent as your natural teeth
  • Doesn’t require a messy, uncomfortable tooth impression

How soon can I eat after getting a CEREC one-day crown?

You can eat and drink immediately after getting a CEREC one-day crown. However, it’s recommended to wait a few hours until the dental resin used to bond the crown has fully hardened.
