Traditionally, if you needed a dental crown it would require multiple appointments. The first appointment would require taking messy impressions which would then be sent to a lab to be created, and being fitted with a temporary crown. You would then return a few weeks later to be fitted with the final restoration. If that sounds like a pain, we agree. That’s why we’ve invested in a high-tech CEREC milling machine that allows us to create and place crowns in a single appointment!

A dental crown is a tooth colored restoration that fits like a cap over the damaged portion to restore a tooth in form and function. Today, at Coastal Cosmetic Family Dentistry®, we use a beautiful, natural-looking tooth colored porcelain that blends in seamlessly with your natural teeth, and restores your smile to its healthy functioning state. A crown can restore a tooth that is damaged, or replace a tooth that is missing with the help of a dental implant.
The benefits of CEREC same day crowns are numerous, and range from functional to cosmetic to health:
If you are ready to restore your smile with a crown, your appointment will be quick and painless. We will take digital 3D impressions which our CEREC machine will convert and fabricate into a beautiful restoration that will be placed and secured in the same appointment.
