CEREC Same Day Crowns

We’ve invested in this amazing in-office, state-of-the-art technology to make going to the dentist, less of a hassle. This means just one visit to get a beautiful, permanent crown vs multiple visits to the dental office for the same thing.

CEREC stands for (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) which is a precision 3-D technology that allows dentists to fit a beautiful, natural-looking crown in just one visit!

For Example, below are the necessary steps to getting a Traditional Crown vs a Same-Day CEREC crown.

After taking a picture of your damaged tooth, our experienced dentists will digitally design your restoration from the same picture. The design is then sent to a milling machine in another room, which engineers your new crown while you wait. The milling process usually takes about 15 minutes per crown. Once complete, your dentist bonds the new crown to the surface of your old tooth, and then adjusts it until the bite is accurate. When you visit us for CEREC dentistry in Denham Springs, the entire process takes about two hours.
