How We Create a Crown in a One Visit?
- Consultation & Exam
First, you will meet with Dr. Baker or Dr. Kauffman who will examine your tooth and identify the appropriate treatment. If the best course of treatment is a dental crown using CEREC, we will prepare the tooth for restoration.
- Digital Impressions
Next, our experienced CEREC dentists will use a 3D color camera to capture a digital image which is then projected onto a computer so we can start the design.
- Design & Create
Using the CAD/CAM technology, we design a virtual restoration. Once the design is complete we send the data to the milling machine and your custom-made crown is fabricated in 10-15 minutes.
- Glaze & Place
Next, we place the crown in your mouth to ensure a comfortable fit and bite. The last step of the process is glazing and bonding the crown into place. Once this is completed you get to leave our practice with a beautiful, functional smile.

Everything You Need to Know About CEREC Dental Crowns
CEREC Dental Crowns FAQs
What is CEREC?
CEREC, short for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, is a machine that allows your dentist to design and mill dental restorations chairside so you don’t have to return for a follow-up appointment or wear a temporary crown for weeks while waiting for a lab to fabricate your crown. Our dental professionals use CEREC’s 3D and CAD/CAM technology to design a virtual restoration (either an onlay, inlay, bridge, or crown) without having to take impressions. When used in tandem with our milling unit, we can completely finish a restoration in a single appointment.
Why Would I Need a CEREC Crown?
There are many reasons why you might need a dental crown including:
- to finish a dental implant
- if you have extreme discoloration of a tooth
- severe tooth decay
- a broken, chipped or damaged tooth
- after a root canal
Are CEREC Crowns Covered by Insurance?
Some dental insurance plans may cover the full cost of traditional and same-day dental crowns but most do not cover 100% of the cost. In most cases, if you have an HSA or FSA, you can use this to cover the remaining cost of your crowns. Since there are so many different insurance coverage options for dental crowns it is best to speak with your dental insurance provider about your coverage options prior to scheduling your dental crowns appointment.
Is the CEREC Crown Durable? How Long Do They Last?
There is no difference in durability between CEREC one visit dental crowns and traditional dental crowns. In fact, these crowns typically last 10-15 years. With good oral habits and twice a year dental exams and teeth cleanings it is possible to have the crown last longer than 15 years.
Are CEREC Crowns More Expensive Than Traditional Crowns?
Most insurance companies will cover CEREC one visit dental crowns similar to how they would cover traditional crowns. The long term advantages of CEREC crowns are:
- Less risk of recurrent decay due to the bonding method
- The material is very durable and healthier for your gum tissue
- Less tooth structure is removed using the CEREC method
Are Crowns the Only Restorations Done with CEREC Technology?
CEREC technology can be used for a variety of one-visit dental restorations including inlays, onlays and bridges. The restorative dental treatments with CEREC focus on rebuilding teeth compromised by decay, oral injury, malfunction, root canal therapy, infection or multiple fillings. Dr. Baker believes in providing excellent patient care by continuously learning about new technology and staying up to date with new advances in the field of dentistry.
