CEREC® Same-Day Crowns


CEREC® Same-Day Crowns

Short for “Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics,” CEREC® hardware has a specialized camera to capture a 3D photo of your mouth. Then, it makes a “digital mold” from which it can fabricate a crown customized for you — both in shape and color.

It uses solid ceramic — no metals — and the crowns are identical to what used to take weeks to produce. The result is a porcelain crown ready in an hour. Then, Dr. Schuman will install the crown with a durable dental bonding agent.

How do you know if you need a crown?

  • Your tooth is chipped, cracked, or broken
  • You have a severely discolored tooth that doesn’t respond to whitening
  • You have a significantly worn-down tooth
  • You have a tooth that’s an irregular size or shape

How long will a CEREC® crown last?

Just like any other porcelain crown, it can last 10 to 15 years on average. To get the most out of your CEREC® crown, be sure to:
  • Brush twice daily
  • Floss around the crown carefully at least once a day
  • Visit Schuman Center Dental Aesthetics in Creve Coeur twice yearly for a dental exam and teeth cleaning

Traditional crowns and CEREC® crowns look exactly the same.


Traditional Crowns vs CEREC®

For traditional crowns, your dentist would take an impression of your mouth, and then a specialized technician would need to custom-create a crown for you.
You'd spent two to three weeks with a “temporary crown” before returning to the dentist to have your permanent crown installed. Sometimes this is still necessary.
Please contact Schuman Center Dental Aesthetics to find out about the new CEREC® technology.
The convenience of having your CEREC® crown made while you wait... is both innovative and priceless.
