Experience an advanced process of getting dental crowns. Comfort Care Dental is now offering CEREC crowns to restore your teeth.
Protect and restore Your Teeth in One Appointment With CEREC Crowns
Traditional dental crowns often require more than a single appointment and takes weeks before it gets made and attached by the dentist.
If you’re one of the people who needs a dental crown, you know that you may need to wait before receiving your traditional dental crown to complete the process. Your dentist may require you to wear a temporary crown, which means you will need multiple visits to the clinic.

With Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) technology, we are able to create custom-made crowns that look natural and feel comfortable. The process is quick and easy – we simply take an impression using a scanner and then create the crown right in our office. This means that you can get your new crown in just one visit! And because our crowns are made from high-quality materials, you can be assured that they will last for many years to come. If you’re looking for a convenient, comfortable, and affordable way to get a new crown, schedule an appointment with us today.
Common Reasons Why You Might Need CEREC Crowns
A misshapen tooth can make the appearance of your smile unbalanced. In some cases, CEREC crowns may be an excellent option to hide imperfections.
Teeth whitening treatments can remove stubborn stains on your tooth enamel that regular toothbrushing can't remove alone. Fortunately, CEREC crowns can conceal tooth discolouration.
If one of your teeth has damage but doesn't require extraction, your dentist may recommend CEREC crowns to cover your tooth. This prevents exposing tissues inside of your teeth and avoids sensitivity.
Tooth loss can result in many complications; while there are several dental restorations, dental implants are becoming a popular option. A CEREC crown can be placed on top of the implant to restore the missing tooth and function just like a natural tooth.

FAQs About CEREC Crowns
The procedure for creating a conventional dental crown can be uncomfortable. It requires taking a physical impression of your mouth using putty dental materials. Sometimes it can be messy and inconvenient, especially for some patients with low gag reflexes.
On the other hand, a CEREC crown can be made within 10 to 15 minutes inside the dental clinic. This quick process is also comfortable since your dentist uses 3D-imaging software to make a precise model of your teeth.
After that, your dentist will design your crown, ensuring it’s properly aligned to your bite and not crowding adjacent teeth. Once done, a 3D milling machine is used to 3D print out the digital image and mill out the crown.
Finally, your dentist will polish and glaze the crown to match the colour of your natural teeth and fit it over your tooth.
CEREC crowns are also called same-day crowns as they can be made and fitted in your mouth in a single visit. It covers your tooth and protects it from further damage.
If you’re considering getting a same-day crown, also known as a CEREC crown, you might be wondering if they’re safe. The short answer is, Yes! CEREC crowns are made from high-quality materials that are designed to last. They’re also custom-made to fit your mouth comfortably and look natural. One of the best things about CEREC crowns is that the entire process can be done in one visit to the dentist.
CEREC crowns are the recommended choice if you want to make sure your teeth look good for a long time. You can maintain them with a good oral hygiene routine, regular dental checkups, and professional cleanings, and if you avoid using your teeth to tear open things or bite down on hard food.
Research states that CEREC crowns tend to be well-built and can resist abrasion, making them durable for many years.
The 3D model of your crown is designed digitally. The CAM/CAD features allow dental professionals to create the right size, shape, and length of the tooth in relation to other teeth. There’s an indication on the computer that tells how close the crown will be to the nearby teeth, which avoids overcrowding and promotes precise fitting.
After the milling unit in the dental office produces the CEREC crown, your dentist will polish it and glaze it with the shade of colour to match your existing teeth. The process can result in a natural-looking and functional crown that caps over the affected tooth.
Many people are curious why same-day crowns are becoming prevalent in replacing damaged teeth. Here are the benefits you can enjoy with CEREC restoration:
- Minimally Invasive
In contrast to other processes of getting dental restorations, the creation of a CEREC crown is so smooth and less hassle. You just need to lie down on the dental chair while your dentist takes the impressions of your teeth. No biting down on a tray of messy dental putty is required.
- Highly Precise
The process of making a CEREC crown starts with digital impressions of your teeth and gums. These 3D models allow us to design and see what the crown will look like before the actual.
- Single Dental Appointment
It can only take one day from oral assessment to milling out the crown. This is an excellent option for busy individuals who want to avoid multiple visits to the dentist.
- No Temporary Crown Is Needed
Lab-created crowns involve taking physical impressions of your teeth and sending them to the dental lab, where technicians create them. It may take a few days or weeks to complete. Your dentist will attach a temporary crown over your tooth to prepare it for the actual dental crown during these days. Sometimes, these processes can be a hassle for certain people. Since CEREC crowns can be done within the day, no temporary crown is necessary.
Research suggests that ceramic material and how the CEREC crown is made can last for more than a decade with utmost care. This can help you save money and avoid the need for additional dental work.
The CEREC crown procedure has benefits, but it also comes with some drawbacks.
- Gum Irritation
The bacteria may cause redness and irritation. Sometimes, it can be challenging to reach areas around the tooth, which can happen in any dental restoration. Fortunately, there are ways to prevent this. You can use a floss pick or other dental products to clean the area thoroughly. You can also inform your dentist about it if it’s been bothering you.
Not every dental clinic offers CEREC crowns, and only a few dentists are trained to use this technology.
- Quite Expensive
CEREC crowns use advanced technology from the very beginning of the process. It’s not surprising that they can be more costly than other tooth replacements.
Every dental restoration requires proper maintenance to maximise its benefits. CEREC crowns can last up to 20 to 30 years with excellent oral hygiene and maintenance. In contrast, traditional crowns can also last between 10 and 15 years.
However, their lifespan may also depend on their location in your mouth, materials, and your bite force. Follow your dentist’s recommendation to make your crowns last longer and for tips on how to maintain them.
Procedures that involve advanced technology can be pretty expensive. It’s no surprise that the CEREC crown may cost thousands of dollars. But the convenient and highly precise process can be worth the investment.
In Australia, getting a CEREC crown may cost anywhere between $1,600 and $2,000. The good news is that some private health insurance policies may offer coverage for some part of your CEREC crown treatment.
However, the cost may differ on every individual, so we recommend getting an exact quotation of your CEREC crown during your initial appointment from our dentist at Comfort Care Dental.
