That means you don’t have to take additional time off work for multiple appointments or deal with uncomfortable temporary crowns, we complete the entire dental crown procedure in just one visit. Our Romeoville dentists will get your tooth fixed and get you back to life in no time!
How Does CEREC Work?
CEREC stands for Chairside Economic Restorations of Esthetic Ceramics. The machine works with our computer to let us design and mill a natural-looking restoration in our office while you wait. CEREC one-day dental crowns use a strong ceramic material, and their natural color matches your other healthy teeth.
To start, we take images of the tooth or teeth that need repair work. We send those images to our computer and digitally design the restorations using the images we just took as guides. Once everyone is satisfied with the look of the restoration, we send the images to the CEREC mill, which is in our office. Your new crown is then made right then and there, aided by our computers to ensure that the crown will fit your mouth.
All of this happens in a single visit while you’re waiting! Once the crown is ready – it takes about 20 minutes – we’ll test it out and make sure it feels okay before bonding it to your tooth. Once we’ve completed the bonding, you’re ready to go about the rest of your day.
