CEREC® Same-Day Crowns
Get your new crown or onlay in a single visit at our Cincinnati dental office.
One appointment. No gooey impressions. No temporary to wear.
Chances are at some point in your life you are going to need to fix a tooth that is broken or decayed. We’re hard on our teeth and many people have one or two (or more!) metal fillings in their mouth. These fillings are made of materials that can wear out, go bad, weaken the tooth or get additional decay around them. With a CEREC same day crown or onlay**, Dr. Omeltschenko can fix broken or decayed teeth and restore them to their natural beauty and strength – in a single visit.
** An onlay is similar to a crown, but leaves more of the tooth structure intact. Onlays are used when a tooth has a problem that is too big to fix with a filling, but does not require the full-coverage of a crown. The steps to fix a tooth with an onlay versus a crown are identical.
Restore your broken or badly decayed tooth in one visit with CEREC
Dr. Omeltschenko is able to offer single visit crowns or onlays to his Cincinnati patients with the use of a CEREC machine. A CEREC machine utilizes CAD/CAM technology to make porcelain tooth restorations. It is comprised of a 3D scanner, a computer, and a milling unit.
After your tooth is prepped for a crown or onlay, Dr. Omeltschenko will use the 3D scanner to take a digital “impression” of your prepped tooth.
The digital impression is used to design you a new, custom-fitted restoration on a computer, and that design is sent to a milling chamber, where lasers shape a block of porcelain into your new restoration. Then the crown or onlay is fired in an oven for added durability and bonded to your prepped tooth – all at the same visit.
And the best part is, it’s pretty cool to watch your new crown or onlay being designed on the screen right before your eyes!
Experience the comfort, convenience, and durability of a single visit crown or onlay
Traditionally, crowns and onlays have been made in a dental lab. This requires a dentist to take a gooey impression and send that off to a lab to be made into a restoration. It takes about 2 weeks for the lab to create the restoration, so the patient has to wear a temporary restoration while waiting. Then the patient has to return, get numb again, and have the restoration bonded into their mouth.
This process is streamlined with CEREC single visit restorations:
Comfortable – CEREC crowns or onlays do not require two-visits, so you only have to get numb once. Also, the “impression” is taken with a 3D scanner, not gooey impression trays. This also means you don’t have to wear an unsightly temporary while you’re waiting for your restoration to be made.
Convenient – Your restoration will be completed in one visit, so you won’t have to take extra time off work or spend more on gas to drive here twice.
Durable – Your restoration will be made from a durable block of porcelain and “fired” in an oven to increase strength. With proper care and maintenance, your restoration will last for years to come.
Paying for your single visit crown or onlay
You don’t even have to pay extra for the comfort and convenience of a CEREC crown or onlay – they cost the same as one made in a lab. To see a list of the fees at our Cincinnati dental office, visit our Total Dentistry Price List page.
