CEREC technology resolves the common disadvantages of the traditional method, allowing you to enjoy a same-day crown that looks like a real tooth. You can benefit from the latest technology while keeping your treatment within your budget using your dental insurance. You have the affordable and convenient solution you need to rebuild your smile.

Traditional Crown vs. CEREC Crown

Crowns are widely used in restorative dentistry because they are versatile. They improve the health, structure, and appearance of a tooth by placing a custom-made cap over its entire visible surface. The traditional method to receive a crown is effective, but it can be quite the hassle.

Your tooth is prepared and shaped during your first appointment. Your dentist also takes an impression using a messy material to get the measurements necessary to create your crown. The impression is sent to an off-site dental lab to be made to meet your needs. This can take a couple of weeks, so your dentist must attach a temporary crown in the meantime. After your restoration is ready, you return to your dentist for a second appointment to have it cemented to your tooth.

Now, you can skip the hassle of a messy impression, temporary crown, and second appointment with CEREC. After your tooth is prepared, your dentist takes a digital impression of your tooth. The image integrates with CAD/CAM software, allowing them to customize your restoration to meet your exact needs. This state-of-the-art software removes any room for error to ensure your crown matches your color, size, and shape needs to look and feel like a real tooth.

The information is sent to an in-office milling machine, where it is cut from a single block of all-ceramic material. This takes less than one hour, so you can walk out of your appointment the same day with your custom-made restoration. Although the entire process is completed in one visit, rest assured your crown is durable to last for several years.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Crowns?

Your dental insurance can help pay for the cost of CEREC crowns. After paying your annual deductible, your insurance can cover as much as 80% of the treatment depending on your specific policy. You can use CareCredit to pay for any remaining balance.
