Do you cringe when someone says the word “crown”? Do you think of gooey impressions, multiple appointments and just the overall inconvenience of it? Technology now exists that allows patients to go from diagnosis to having a dental crown in place all in the same day. In fact, a CEREC crown only takes a few hours from start to finish.
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic) uses a high-tech device that allows our Edmonton dental office to create your crown in just one visit. This device uses digital mapping technology to chart the inside of your mouth and take an image of your tooth. A crown is then created out of a high-grade ceramic block and attached to your damaged tooth.
When compared to a conventional crown, the CEREC same day crown is just as durable, lasting 10-15 years. Our computer-aided technology ensures that each crown is made with a very high degree of accuracy. Quick fabrication doesn’t mean a lower quality product. With twice daily brushing and semi-annual dental exams, CEREC crowns will last for years, giving our clients the beautiful smile they desire.
A full CEREC crown ranges from $1200-1500 whereas an implant crown ranges between $1800 and $2500.
