What is a CEREC crown and how long does it take?

A CEREC crown is a high-tech ceramic crown that we make in our office. The crown is made the same day. Appointments are about two hours, but you walk out with the permanent restoration. Cutting edge digital mapping technology scans your mouth and makes a digital impression of your tooth. The doctor designs the crown virtually, and it is then milled in our computer lathe (mill) to make a porcelain/ceramic crown that is immediately cemented to the tooth.
