CEREC: The BEST Way to Create Biocompatible Same-Day Crowns & Other Dental Restorations

A damaged tooth must be repaired. It’s that simple. Cracked, broken, damaged, and missing teeth can cause lifelong health problems and complications. In the past, creating a tooth crown or other restoration to replace a tooth was a lengthy and frustrating process requiring multiple trips to the dentist, messy and goopy impressions, and a flimsy temporary crown.

Not anymore!

Using advanced 3D imaging technology and an in-office fabrication system, the Green Dentistry team can create beautiful, functional, and long-lasting same-day crowns and restorations in minutes. It’s absolutely incredible! The CEREC system can be used to create restorations like ceramic crowns to complete a root canal, dental implant, or other restorative procedure.

Advantages of CEREC Crowns

Materials CEREC crowns and porcelain veneers are made from a non-toxic, non-metal, biocompatible porcelain material.
Longevity Same-day crowns and porcelain veneers are durable and designed to last for decades. Just like real teeth! With CEREC you’ll never get a cavity in that tooth!
Appearance Our crowns look just like your natural teeth.
Comfort They’ll fit perfectly and provide long-term comfort and function.

The CEREC Custom Crown Process

Why wait weeks with a temporary crown? Your finished crown can be completed in one visit of about 2 hours!

3D X-rays take images and create a model of your tooth & mouth

Advanced software makes a “blueprint” using the 3D images

High-tech CEREC “prints” your biocompatible crown in minutes

“Such a lovely experience from start to finish. As a new patient, I was able to schedule an appointment easily a week out. The entire staff was so gracious and accommodating with my anxiety and genuinely ensured I felt comfortable and safe. Dr. Patel is both a thoughtful and direct communicator, leaving me feeling informed and entrusted to her care. Thank you Green Dentistry!”
