Dental Crowns

Smiling girl got her porcelain dental crowns in Mechanicsville, MD.Previously, when a patient required a dental crown, an impression was first taken using a messy putty material and then sent to a lab for fabrication. While the patient waited for their restoration to be made, he or she was sent home with a temporary tooth crown and a second visit was required to place the new restoration.

CEREC Same Day Dental Crowns

CEREC is an acronym that stands for Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic. Today, thanks to the CEREC process, impressions are fully digital and can be taken in a matter of minutes.

CEREC Crown Process

CEREC’s chairside computer utilizes CAD/CAM technology to create a 3D image of your new dental crown, perfectly customized to fit your unique dentition. The on-site milling machine then creates the dental crown from a single block of tooth-colored porcelain that has been matched to suit the shade of the surrounding teeth.

“I chipped a molar which quickly needed repair. In this day and age of instant gratification, I am pleased to have had that desire met when receiving a same-day crown. … I was given the pleasure of watching the crown being created in less than fifteen minutes. I am definitely impressed with the knowledgeable staff and their use of cutting-edge technology. … Dr. McCray, Dr. Demer and the St. Mary’s Dental team make each visit a pleasurable one.”
