One-visit Crowns using CEREC
We are excited to now be able to do the majority of our crowns in one appointment using the CEREC system. CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramics and has actually been around for over 30 years. Once the tooth needing the crown has been prepared, we digitally scan the prep, plan the crown on the computer and mill it from a solid block of ceramic. No more impression putty, second visits or weeks in a temporary. The crowns look great and are very strong.
We will be updating our website soon with lots more information (on the same day crown process) or stop by Eric and Casey Burns DDS and ask us about CEREC crowns. If your timing is right, you may be able to watch a crown being milled! EB
