When faced with a weakened tooth that needs to be repaired, the last thing you want to do is have to schedule multiple dental appointments as well as wait weeks to receive your finalized dental crown.

In just one appointment, Dr. Carlson can treat your problem tooth, capture the necessary impressions and images, and have your natural-looking dental crown created and placed for beautiful results. Contact our office today to learn more about CEREC crowns and if you’re a qualified candidate.
CEREC technology is a particular suite of software that is used in our dental office that makes it possible for Dr. Carlson and his team to design, fabricate, and place porcelain dental crowns in only one visit. Unlike traditional dental crowns that require at least dental visits, CEREC provides a faster, more comfortable approach to restorative dentistry.
After thoroughly cleaning and removing decayed portions of your tooth, our team captures digital impressions of your weakened tooth using a handheld device. Once the impression is received, we will make any necessary adjustments on the screen before sending it off to the in-house milling unit. This unique piece of equipment will craft your customized dental crown out of a piece of 100% dental porcelain while you wait. Once it is ready, we will bond it into place over your tooth. Within 1-2 hours, you will have a repaired, fully restored smile that looks and feels completely natural.
Yes! Apart from the state-of-the-art dental technology and equipment used as part of the CEREC system, the crowns that are created in the milling unit are durable and made of high-grade porcelain. Offering a natural appearance once put into place, they are capable of withstanding the daily wear and tear that comes with speaking and eating. Also, CEREC crowns can last a decade or longer with proper care, so it’s imperative that you remain committed to a good oral hygiene routine as well as protecting your smile if you want to extend the lifespan of your restoration.
If you’re just too busy to wait for a traditional dental crown, you’ll find there are many great benefits to choosing a CEREC crown, some of which include:
