Sensitivity to cold foods and drinks finally sent you into the dentist where you received the discouraging information that you need a dental crown to restore your tooth. You’ve been through this before, and you’re not the least bit excited about the process. You wore a very uncomfortable temporary crown that kept falling out for at least two weeks while you waited for your final restoration to arrive. The whole process took a long time to complete and you’re not looking forward to it again. Who has time for all these appointments?
Well your dentist in Scarborough has excellent news for you! You can now receive your permanent crown in one easy appointment with CEREC technology. Here we’ll discuss same day crowns in Scarborough completed with revolutionary CEREC technology.
What is CEREC technology?
CEREC is a milling machine that can design and fabricate a high quality porcelain crown in approximately 90 minutes or so in the comfort of your dentist’s office. Using 3D technology, your dentist will scan an image of your tooth directly to the CEREC milling machine located in their office. The machine uses the image to create your restoration, and you’ll leave the same day with a completed crown!
What are the Benefits of CEREC Same Day Crowns?
The biggest benefit CEREC offers is a high quality, permanent restoration that you can trust that is completed in only a matter of hours instead of weeks. What used to take 2-4 weeks to complete can now be done in one appointment, and you will no longer have to endure the trouble of wearing a temporary crown.
Many patients experienced discomfort, breakage, and loss of their temporary crowns causing them to have even more appointments to repair or replace them while they waited for their permanent restoration. With CEREC, you no longer need a temporary crown!
3D imaging has also streamlined the crown preparation process. By using a 3D image to design your crown, your dentist no longer has to use uncomfortable and messy impressions of your teeth, which makes the whole preparation process more comfortable for you. 3D images offer a more precise picture of your tooth, which makes the design of your new tooth much more accurate.

This is why Dr. Samantha Amaro is proud to offer CEREC technology to her patients at White Willow Family and Cosmetic Dentistry.
