CEREC® – Single visit crowns

Mint Dental Work’s state-of-the-art CEREC technology offers patients natural looking, durable dental crowns in a single appointment! With our CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) system, you no longer have to deal with taking a messy impression, getting fitted with an uncomfortable temporary restoration or scheduling a second visit weeks later for a new crown.

How CEREC Works

After an initial exam and X-rays, the same-day crown process begins with preparation of the tooth to ensure it is clean and ready to be sealed. We apply numbing anesthetic and remove all decayed or damaged material from the tooth.

Our CEREC technology includes computer-aided drafting (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), which creates a digital impression of the mouth and a three-dimensional model of the new crown. The information is transferred to our on-site milling machine, which creates a custom, metal free crown from a single block of porcelain that is tailored to match the natural shade of your teeth.

After the milling machine creates the crown, we check the fit, then clean and buff the restoration. Our in-house lab, allows us to make any necessary adjustments to your restoration in just minutes. Once we are certain the crown fits well, it is secured into place with dental bonding material.

Voila! In a single, convenient appointment, you can leave our office with a beautiful, fully functional restoration.
