The CEREC Process: A Seamless Experience

1. Consultation

Every CEREC procedure begins with a thorough consultation. Dr. Laughlin will evaluate your dental health and determine if a CEREC crown is the best option for you.

2. Digital Impression

We use a state-of-the-art 3D color camera to take a digital impression of your tooth. This process is quick, accurate, and comfortable, eliminating the need for traditional mold impressions.

3. In-House Fabrication

Our on-site milling machine fabricates your custom crown in about 15 minutes. This means no more waiting weeks for a dental lab to create your crown.

4. Placement

Finally, we place your new crown, ensuring a perfect fit. The crown is then glazed and bonded securely into place, leaving you with a beautifully restored tooth.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do same-day crowns last?

How much do same-day crowns cost, and are they covered by insurance?

The cost of same-day crowns is comparable to traditional crowns. Most dental insurances cover crown procedures, but coverage for same-day crowns can vary. It's advisable to check with your insurance provider.

How do I care for my same-day crown?

Can same-day crowns be used for all types of crown needs?

Same-day crowns are suitable for most crown procedures. However, there may be some cases where traditional crowns are more appropriate. Your dentist will advise you on the best option for your specific situation.

Is the same-day crown procedure painful?

Most patients report minimal discomfort during the procedure. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area, making the process as pain-free as possible.

How long does the same-day crown process take?

Typically, the entire process can be completed in about two hours, including preparation, digital imaging, crown fabrication, and placement.

Are same-day crowns as durable as traditional crowns?

Yes, same-day crowns are made from high-quality ceramic, making them just as durable and long-lasting as traditional crowns.

How do same-day crowns work?

The process begins with a digital 3D image of your tooth, taken with a special camera. This image is used to design your crown with precision. The design is then sent to an in-office milling machine, which fabricates your crown from a high-quality ceramic block in about 15 minutes. Finally, the crown is fitted and bonded to your tooth.
