Ready to achieve a picture-perfect smile that looks great and functions wonderfully? With the advanced CEREC® system, one-day crowns and veneers are now available, as well as bridges and ceramic fillings.


How the CEREC Process Works

The CEREC machines use CAD/CAM technology to create perfect, lifelike restorations. Essentially, it is a computer, camera, and ceramic mill rolled into one that creates precision 3D restorations.

This precise, fast, and efficient process turns a problem tooth or a gap into a perfectly restored smile – in just a few hours! There’s no need to fit a temporary crown or multiple visits to squeeze into your busy schedule. Our skilled dentists will ensure your restoration is the perfect shade and fits perfectly.

Our advanced CEREC system can help with restorations such as

  • One-day Crowns - if you need a ceramic or Zirconia crown, CEREC is a fast and precise option. First is the tooth preparation for the crown, then the site, opposing jaw and the bite are scanned. Our dentist then designs the crown and sends the design to the milling machine, which mills the crown out of a ceramic block, like zirconia.
  • One-day Bridges - the advancements in CEREC technology have made zirconia ceramic blocks available, allowing us to construct strong, well-fitting, two and three-unit bridges in one day using the same procedure as one-day crowns. A dental bridge closes the gap between a missing tooth/teeth and the remaining teeth.
  • Inlays/Onlays - if a large part of a tooth is lost for any reason, for example, due to extensive decay, failed fillings or fracture, fixing the tooth with composite filling material is not the best option in the long term. In these cases, inlays or onlays, which are hybrid ceramic fillings, are made outside the mouth and cemented on the tooth.
  • One-day Veneers - in some cases, we can make beautiful hybrid or full ceramic veneers with CEREC. However, you must be a good candidate for this restoration. For example, the bite should be okay, and there should not be severe discolouration or misalignment of the teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is CEREC technology, and how does it work for same-day crowns?

CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. It’s an advanced dental technology that allows us to create custom zirconia or porcelain crowns in our practice. After digital impressions, the CEREC milling unit crafts your crown on the same day, eliminating the need for multiple visits.

Are CEREC same-day crowns as durable as traditional crowns?

Absolutely. CEREC crowns, especially those made of zirconia or porcelain, offer excellent durability. The advanced materials and precision milling technology ensure your same-day crown is as strong and reliable as traditional crowns.

How long does the entire CEREC same-day crown process take?

One of the key benefits of CEREC technology is the efficiency. The entire process usually takes a couple of hours, from digital impressions to the final placement. You can walk out with your new crown on the same day, saving time and reducing the need for multiple appointments.

Are CEREC same-day crowns more expensive than traditional crowns?

At our practice, we do not charge extra for CEREC same-day crowns. The elimination of multiple appointments and the convenience of same-day treatment often benefits the patients from all aspects.

Can CEREC same-day crowns be used for any tooth needing a crown?

CEREC technology is suitable for many dental crown cases. It’s particularly effective for single-tooth restorations and short span dental bridges. However, the dentist will assess your case to determine if CEREC same-day crowns are the optimal choice based on tooth location, size, and complexity.
