Why Choose Hyland Dental for CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns? 

What Are CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns?

If case you aren’t aware, dental crowns are small caps designed to be placed over the teeth, repairing and protecting damaged teeth. CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, and are a variety of dental crown created by a proprietary in-office mill. The nature of this machine allows dental crowns to be completed on-site in as little as an hour, eliminating the need for multiple appointments.

The Process of Getting a CEREC Same-Day Dental Crown

The first portion of the appointment will be nearly identical as if you were getting a traditional dental crown. A small amount of enamel will be removed from the tooth in order to make room for the eventual dental crown—of course, your mouth will be numbed before this is done. We will then take digital impressions of your tooth and use these to design your restoration.

These digital designs will be fed into the in-office milling machine, at which point the magic happens. Within about an hour, this machine will create a new dental crown modeled to the perfect color, shape, and size for your smile. You’ll get to try on this restoration, final adjustments will be made, and you’ll leave with a brand new tooth!

Benefits of CEREC Crowns vs. Traditional Crowns

The difference between two and one appointment may not sound like a massive one, but the fact is that it can make the entire process considerably more convenient. Not only will you have to make fewer trips to the dentist’s office, you’ll also skirt the need for a temporary crown to protect your teeth while you wait for the crown to be created in a lab.

CEREC dental crowns also make use of digital impression technology for the design of your restoration, which many patients prefer to messy, gooey dental molds. This advanced imaging technology also makes for more detailed, lifelike results.

You can get all of this convenience without compromising on many of the things you appreciate about dental crowns. The treatment is still just as affordable, and the material that the crown is made from will be comparable.

If this sounds appealing, give us a call and we’ll be happy to show you what this method of creating a dental crown can do for you.

Benefiting from the most advanced dental technologies doesn’t have to cost you a small fortune. Despite what you might have heard, CEREC crowns are affordable for everyone. You’ll save time and money because you won’t need a temporary restoration or a second appointment. Many factors affect the cost of CEREC dental crowns, but Hyland Dental has the solutions you need to keep them affordable.

Factors That Affect the Cost of CEREC Dental Crowns

There isn’t a flat fee for dental crowns because there’s no one-size-fits-all restoration. Every situation differs, which is why several things affect the cost, like:

  • Additional Procedures: Dental crowns are versatile and suitable for many situations. It’s not unusual for them to be used along with other procedures, like root canal therapy or a fixed bridge. Some patients may need a little prep work before getting a crown, like treating a cavity.
  • Materials: Everyone enjoys saving money, but discounted materials can cost you more down the road. They may not be as durable or aesthetically pleasing. Our office only uses the best materials to ensure long-lasting results that look amazing.

Does Dental Insurance Cover CEREC Dental Crowns?

It’s unlikely your dental insurance will pay the entire cost of your treatment, but your benefits can be used for certain steps, like your consultation, diagnostic services, and X-rays. After meeting your annual deductible, your insurance can pay 50% to 80% of the expenses for medically necessary procedures, including your crown. We will work on your behalf with your dental insurance to maximize any applicable coverage.

Options for Making CEREC Dental Crowns Affordable
