Living with damaged, discolored, or cracked teeth can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. Thankfully, you don’t have to wait around for a traditional crown! With in-office CEREC and Primescan technology, Dr. Huelsman can create a custom, durable crown in one visit.
Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, more commonly referred to as CEREC crowns, is the latest in dental technology. Wearing temporary crowns for weeks while waiting for your permanent crowns to be created in a laboratory is a thing of the past with CEREC technology.
You can now get CEREC crowns in just one visit. Why should you have to schedule a second dental appointment after two weeks to get your crowns installed, when CEREC crowns are available within minutes? CEREC crowns provide convenience and innovation to all our patients.
The CEREC system takes advantage of 3-D design software and a milling machine that uses that technology to craft custom-fitted crowns quickly. The technology also does away with the need for impression molds.
To make this impression, we’ll use CEREC’s Primescan dynamic-depth scanner that allows us to capture full jaw scans in less than a minute with unprecedented image quality. For every 3D image, the Primescan scanner consolidates more than 50,000 images per second, offering an unprecedented level of precision in capturing the intricacies of your teeth.
The software will feed this data into the milling machine. Based on this information, the milling unit will then produce the porcelain CEREC crown for your teeth. The whole process of getting CEREC crowns takes just a single appointment.
We understand your need for convenience and quality, and we don’t think that you have to give up one to get the other. CEREC crowns are fast AND durable. We know that many of our clients are very busy and don’t have the time to make several visits to the dentist to get their crowns done. With CEREC crowns, you can go home with your permanent crowns in place after one visit.
How do CEREC crowns look and feel?
Dr. Huelsman can match the variant shading and the shape of your teeth, creating a flawless smile with no distracting metal or color variances. Your CEREC crown will look and feel just like the rest of your teeth.
Are CEREC crowns durable?
Yes! They can last up to 15 years when maintained with professional exams and cleanings and at-home care, including brushing and flossing.
