What is the CEREC same-day crown process?

Your dentist considers you for a CEREC crown in Northborough if your tooth is weak and vulnerable to fractures. In many cases, this fragility is due to deep decay, trauma, or following root canal therapy.

A tooth crown is a tooth-shaped cap that protects a damaged tooth, and it can also conceal tooth flaws that may detract from your smile aesthetic.

The process starts with digital impressions, which means you’ll not have to endure goopy impression materials. We then send these impressions to our on-site milling machine, where your crown is fabricated. Each CEREC one-visit crown takes approximately 15 minutes to mill in our state-of-the-art milling machine. Finally, your dentist provides final adjustments and ensures that the color of your crown matches your smile.

Most patients do not report any discomfort following a CEREC same-day crown placement, but every case is different, and some patients can experience minor discomfort that subsides after a couple of days.
