Thanks to CEREC technology, the once 3+ week process of getting a dental crown is now condensed into a single visit. Instead of relying on outside labs, dentists can design, create, and place CEREC dental crowns in-house, which means more efficient care and less time spent coming to and from their office. But how long does it take, exactly? To learn the answer, keep reading!

So, How Long Does It Take to Make a CEREC Crown?

Designing, creating, and placing a CEREC dental crown takes only two hours. First, a digital impression of your tooth is taken. With computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing, the crown can be meticulously crafted from a block of high-quality dental material, like porcelain, right then and there. Once your dentist has confirmed that it meets your exact specifications, they will glaze and color-match it. The final step will be to attach it to your prepared tooth. Then the process is complete!

What Are the Benefits of CEREC Crowns?

Naturally, one of the biggest benefits of CEREC crowns is the speed. After all, traditional dental crowns can take several weeks and requires multiple appointments, which can be especially annoying if you have a jam-packed schedule. Here are a few other noteworthy benefits to consider as well:

  • Easy impressions – No more goop! Instead, your dentist will use digital impressions, which are both incredibly precise and comfortable.
  • Long-lasting results – With the right best practices in place (i.e., flossing consistently, getting a dental checkup every six months, not smoking), your CEREC crown can last for well over a decade.
  • Lifelike – Color-matched perfectly, your CEREC crown will blend in seamlessly with your smile. Plus, it’s made of durable materials, ensuring it will feel as great as it looks.

Who Is a Candidate for CEREC Crowns?

Curious to know if you’re a candidate for CEREC crowns? These are a few of the most common reasons they are used:

  • To cover teeth that have a filling, adding further reinforcement
  • After a root canal to strengthen and protect the tooth
  • To protect teeth that have cracks, chips, and other structural damage
  • Over a dental implant to rebuild the visible portion of the tooth

CEREC technology is incredible. Now a once 3+ long week process that involved multiple appointments, temporary restorations, and dietary restrictions can be condensed into one comfortable visit!
