CEREC® Same-Day Crowns

Seattle Crown Hill Dental takes pride in offering the cutting-edge convenience of CEREC same-day crowns, a revolutionary approach to dental care that exemplifies our commitment to excellence and patient satisfaction.

Traditional crown procedures can be a time-consuming and often frustrating process, involving multiple appointments and temporary crowns. However, with CEREC technology, we've streamlined this process to make it quicker, more efficient, and more comfortable for our patients.

CEREC, which stands for CEramic REConstruction or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, harnesses state-of-the-art digital imaging and CAD/CAM (Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing) technology to craft custom crowns right in our office, often in a single appointment. No more waiting for a dental lab to create your crown, no more messy impressions, and no need for temporary crowns. With CEREC, you can walk into our office with a dental issue and walk out with a beautifully restored smile in just one visit.

How CEREC works

Maple Valley CEREC Crowns
The process begins with a digital scan of your tooth using a specialized 3D scanner. This scan is then used to create a precise and customized design for your new crown. The computer-aided design ensures an optimal fit and function for your restoration, while the CAD/CAM technology then mills the crown from a solid block of high-quality ceramic. This results in a crown that not only looks incredibly natural but also offers superb strength and durability.

Benefits of CEREC

CEREC same-day crowns not only save you time but also provide an unmatched level of comfort. There's no need for multiple appointments or the inconvenience of wearing a temporary crown, and the digital impressions are far more comfortable than traditional molds. You'll appreciate the speed, convenience, and comfort that CEREC technology brings to your dental experience.

At Smiles for Maple Valley, our commitment to offering CEREC same-day crowns is part of our ongoing dedication to delivering the latest and most advanced dental technologies to our patients. We believe that your dental care should be efficient, convenient, and as comfortable as possible. With CEREC, we make this a reality, so you can enjoy a beautifully restored smile without the wait. Experience the difference that CEREC same-day crowns can make in your dental care journey – it's one more way we're enhancing the overall patient experience in our practice.
