At Meiss Family Dental, we are able to provide same day, single appointment same day crowns on select teeth through the use of CEREC technology. CEREC is a CAD/CAM system that consists of a computerized scanning unit and a high precision milling unit.
The scanning unit takes digital scans of the prepared tooth. Then a crown is designed virtually on the computer to fit perfectly on the tooth. That information is sent to the milling unit, where the crown is milled out of a solid block of porcelain. After milling, the crown is polished and the fit is verified. Finally the crown is cemented on with a light cure cement that fully sets in a few minutes. Thereby providing you a fully usable crown as soon as you leave our office.
