CEREC same-day crowns are a type of crown that is created in the office on the same day that the tooth is prepared. Instead of having a dental impression done, a camera captures the image of the prepared tooth in the mouth. The image is then sent to the computer, and the computer and the operator design the crown while the patients wait. The image and the subsequent design of the crown is sent to a milling unit that chisels a crown out of a ceramic block. The crown is tried in the mouth and adjusted with the bite and the context where it touches the adjacent teeth. The CEREC same-day crowns are then polished and finally bonded into the tooth—all in the same visit.
