If you have a damaged tooth, then a crown can be placed to protect it and add strength to its overall function, as well as improve its appearance. This method is one of the most popular ways this kind of groundbreaking technology is utilized. Previously known as “caps” in the past, crowns are not metal or gold anymore. Unlike many traditional crowns, our CEREC crowns match your tooth’s natural color and appearance to give you a normal and healthy look.
CEREC restorations help repair a tooth that is cracked and worn down from normal wear and tear. Providing a crown will strengthen the entire tooth, supporting it all together while covering and sealing all the cracks to prevent future decay. This is a great method and procedure to utilize when creating and laying a crown.
When Do I Need a Crown?
Crowns are a great option when a tooth doesn’t have enough strength or support for a filling. When there is discoloration, damage, shape, wear and tear, or deterioration in size, a crown can help to restore the tooth to a normal healthy state again.

A groundbreaking method, this technology is utilized by Dr. David Juliani to restore damaged teeth, oftentimes in just one visit.
CEREC restorations can be done in just one appointment, allowing you to leave our office with natural, beautiful, and strong healthy teeth again!

CAD/CAM software is used to create a 3D image of your tooth and the “milling unit” creates a customized dental restoration using this image.
What is even better is that this dental technology is not just for crowns. It can be used for dental implants, veneers, onlays, inlays, bridges, and more. This breakthrough technology can cut the time down on many dental procedures and make them much easier on the patient. CEREC cosmetic procedures, coupled with orthodontics like Invisalign or braces, could really make your smile amazing!
This dental technology makes the process and procedure of many dental applications much easier and can be achieved in easy steps.
The Steps Include:
1. Dental examination to evaluate what type of restoration is needed for the tooth.
2. Anesthetic is applied to prepare for any decay removal or other items that may cause discomfort before beginning the procedure.
3. Optical Impressions are taken with a powdery substance that is applied to the tooth, and digital photography will capture the picture.
4. A 3D model will be developed via high-tech software and dental technology. Once the plan for the process is finalized, then the milling machine will produce the ceramic covering for your damaged tooth or teeth.
5. Any final bonding will take place to fit the material to the teeth and adjustments that need to be made will be completed.
After the Procedure
The ceramic application made to your teeth by this technological method should last for at least several years. You will need to keep up with healthy oral hygiene, such as daily flossing, brushing, and routine cleanings with your dentist. If you tend to grind your teeth or chew hard food, then it’s possible your ceramic application will deteriorate faster. Make sure to listen to your dental provider and follow all recommended steps when it comes to caring for your newly restored teeth.
