Traditional dental crowns usually take multiple appointments and can take up to two weeks to be crafted at a dental lab. At Maplewood Dental Group we use CEREC Same-Day dentistry technology. CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. It is a state-of-the-art device that uses CAD/CAM technology and 3D imaging to quickly create a highly detailed digital impression of your mouth, design a custom dental crown, and mill that crown while you wait. No need to wait two weeks, and no temporary crowns are necessary.
CEREC crowns are fabricated from metal-free porcelain to benefit your oral health and blend seamlessly with your smile. We use a tooth-colored material that is carefully matched to the shade of your other teeth to produce a beautiful, durable, and natural-looking result.
