Thanks to advances in dental technology, this is now a reality with CEREC Same Day Crowns. This innovative procedure offers a time-saving and convenient solution for dental restorations, ensuring you can get back to your daily routine with a confident smile.
What Are CEREC Same Day Crowns?
CREC Same Day Crowns, also known as Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CREC), are dental crowns made using CAD/CAM (Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing) technology. Unlike traditional crowns that require multiple visits and temporary restorations, CREC Same Day Crowns are fabricated and placed in a single dental appointment. The process involves digital scanning, designing, and milling of the crown right in our Farmington Hills dental office.
Benefits of CEREC Same Day Crowns
- Time-Efficient: The most significant advantage of CEREC Same Day Crowns is the time saved. Traditional crown procedures can take several weeks, whereas CEREC crowns are completed in just one appointment.
- Convenience: With CEREC Same Day Crowns, you avoid the hassle of wearing temporary crowns and scheduling multiple visits to the dentist.
- Accurate Fit: CAD/CAM technology ensures precise and accurate crown fittings, reducing the likelihood
of discomfort or adjustments later on.
- Natural Appearance: CEREC crowns are made from tooth-colored ceramic materials, providing a natural and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
- Durable: These crowns are known for their strength and longevity, making them a reliable choice for dental restorations.
Candidacy for CEREC Same Day Crowns
CEREC Same Day Crowns are suitable for individuals who require dental crowns due to:
- Decayed or damaged teeth
- Fractured or cracked teeth
- Large fillings requiring replacement

However, some complex cases may still require traditional crowns, and Dr. Shlafer will determine the best treatment option for you based on your specific dental needs.
How the Procedure Works
- Digital Scanning: Your Farmington Hills dentist will use an intraoral scanner to create a 3D digital impression of your teeth, eliminating the need for messy traditional impressions.
- CAD Design: The digital impression is used to design the crown’s exact specifications, ensuring a precise fit.
- Milling Process: The crown is milled from a block of ceramic material right in the dental office using CAD/CAM technology.
- Placement: Once the crown is ready, Dr. Shlafer will bond it to your tooth, making necessary adjustments to ensure a proper bite and fit.
