What are Cerec Crowns?
Cerec crowns are crowns that are created with new technology. This technology speeds up treatment time, makes the procedure more comfortable and gives a high quality, natural looking result.
What Technology is Used?
In more traditional techniques a dentist would have to take an impression of the patient’s teeth for treatments such as a crown. However, this new technology means a scan can be taken. The use of a digital scan makes the process accurate, quick and is a lot more comfortable for the patient.
The system uses software that assists dentists in designing a patient’s crown. It can also help with other treatments such as veneers and fillings. This can be done quickly while you are at the dentist’s office. With software like this, some restoration procedures can be completed in one visit.
After the design has been completed, your dentist will create your crown in a milling unit. A material that looks natural is used and it will be made to fit your perfectly. Fillings and veneers can be created in this unit too. This speeds up the process so that you could receive your permanent fixture in the same day.
Treatments That Use This Technology
- Crowns – This will be recommended for chipped, cracked, worn down, decayed and discolored teeth.
- Fillings – For decayed teeth, worn teeth and to replace old fillings.
- Veneers – For gappy teeth, worn teeth and discolored teeth.
Benefits of The Technology

Advantages of Cerec Crowns
