Differences: Traditional vs. CEREC Crowns

Traditional Crowns

CEREC crowns and traditional crowns are extremely similar, with the main difference lying in the procedure methods. With traditional crowns, a dentist will assess the area of the broken tooth and take impressions of the area using a paste. Once the impressions are set, they are sent off to a lab to create a permanent crown to implant during another visit to the dentist’s office. During this waiting period, temporary crowns are usually given to the patient to wear until the permanent crown arrives.

With the traditional crown, there are multiple options for materials, such as:

  • Porcelain/ceramic
  • Metal
  • Porcelain and metal combination



CEREC Crowns

A CEREC same day crown differs in that it doesn’t require multiple appointments to receive a permanent crown – they are made right in the dentist’s office within just a few minutes. This method eliminates time and cost and helps you get back to your normal routine after just one visit. Like traditional crowns, the dentist will assess the area that needs a crown, but instead of using a paste for impressions, CEREC technology allows dentists to use a digital scanner to take an extremely accurate 3D model of your tooth on the computer. This allows for extreme accuracy when creating a crown.

Once the model is formed, the crown will be created in-office within as little as 15 minutes and then simply implanted into your mouth – hassle free! With CEREC technology, you also have the ability to customize the whiteness and fit of your tooth, making sure you are extremely happy with your smile within the same appointment. A CEREC same day crown is made from durable porcelain and provide a real-looking smile and smooth surface.
