CEREC Dental Crowns in 1 Appointment!

Have you been told that you need to have a tooth protected and restored with a dental crown?  Dr. Doug Booth, Huntsville dentist has helped many patients in the same situation with 1-visit crowns using CEREC® CAD-CAM technology (computer aided design – computer aided manufacturing). 

With over 30 years of clinical use, CEREC is a standard option in restorative dentistry.   And, because CEREC is completely digital, it has become a platform for integration with 3D cone beam imaging technologies to aid in the restoration of dental implants.

How is CEREC® different from a traditional dental crown?
A traditional crown procedure usually requires two appointments:
  • During the first visit, the tooth is prepared for a crown, and impressions are taken using mouth trays and putty-like dental impression material.   The patient is fitted with a temporary crown and sent on their way, and the impression is sent to a dental laboratory for fabrication of the crown. 
  • In 2-3 weeks, the patient returns to the office for placement of the final crown restoration.

CEREC® Restorations
CEREC 3D Technology allows Dr. Booth to complete a dental crown procedure in a single appointment.   Here’s how CEREC works:
  • After preparing the tooth for the crown , Dr. Booth is able to capture the tooth anatomy using a 3D imaging camera and create a “virtual” impression – this means no messy dental impression material!
  • With a 3D model of your teeth, Dr. Booth can design a natural-looking ceramic restoration in a shade to match your other teeth.  He uses special software tools to create the final design and map out how your crown should fit within your overall bite.

  • Dr. Booth approves the final design and the CEREC manufacturing system mills your ceramic crown restoration while you wait.
  • CEREC saves TIME.  Your crown is placed over the prepared tooth and you are on your way with your new dental crown – no second appointment required!

Dr. Booth has been a CEREC provider since 2005.   In addition to dental crowns, he uses CEREC technology to create custom dental inlays, onlays and implant crowns.
While some conditions require the use of the outside dental laboratory, in most cases, a single tooth dental crown restoration can be completed in our office using CEREC technology.
