CEREC Crown: Technology That Makes a One-Day Crown Reality

As new technologies, procedures, and materials emerge, dentistry is becoming easier, more painless, faster, and more effective than ever before. Just look at the dental crown, for instance. A procedure that once required multiple trips to the dentist chair can now be performed in a single day at the right office. If you’re lucky enough to live in Lee’s Summit and need a crown, then Dr. Caye’s office is the place to go, because Premier Dental has the latest CEREC crown technology to provide you with same-day crowns.

Starting with the Basics: What Is a Dental Crown?


A crown is a protective cap that gets implanted on a damaged or decayed tooth. The purpose of the crown isn’t just cosmetic but also practical, because it will allow the damaged tooth to function normally again and prevent it from becoming more damaged. Although crowns are highly effective, having one put in typically requires multiple appointments over several days or weeks.


At your first appointment, the dentist will file down the damaged tooth, take an impression of your mouth, and place a temporary cap on the tooth. When the permanent crown is ready, you’ll go in for the second appointment to have the temporary cap taken out and the permanent one put on and sealed in place.


Introducing CEREC, the Technology that’s Changed the Face of Dental Crowns


CEREC is a dental device that uses computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing to create your crown right in the dentist’s office. Here’s how the process works:


  • The device scans and maps your mouth
  • The map is then used to create a virtual blueprint for the tooth that needs to be capped
  • The device uses the blueprint to mill down an accurate and durable tooth made from ceramic
  • Your new CEREC crown is ready to be put in within a few minutes

Experience the Difference of Same-Day CEREC Crowns


At Premier Dental, we know that you don’t have time to come to the office for multiple visits when you need a basic procedure like a crown, and that’s why we’ve embraced CEREC technology. Thanks to this device, you can have a permanent crown fitted, created, and seated in a single visit. No uncomfortable dental implants, no fiddling with a temporary crown, and no return visit to have the permanent crown put on. You will be in and out of the office in a single day with a complete and permanent CEREC crown.


Dental crowns are great when you’ve got a damaged tooth that needs a new protective layer, but traditional crowns can take weeks and multiple appointments to get. When you’re looking for tooth replacement options, CEREC crowns are the ideal solution because they’re fast, effective, durable, and natural looking, and you’ll be in and out of the dentist chair with a brand new crown after a single visit. And because you only have to come in for a single appointment, you’ll also save money, meaning you’ll leave with more cash in your pocket and the smile you’ve been dreaming of.
