Same Day Porcelain Crowns

CEREC, or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, offers a wide range of advantages over conventional methods in customization and fabrication of tooth colored crowns, inlays, and onlays. Also called single-visit crowns, these porcelain restorations created using CEREC technology, look and feel completely natural. A tooth damaged due to decay or injury can be restored the same day in our office with a restoration that blends perfectly with the other teeth.

Advantages of CEREC Same Day Crowns

Traditionally, placing a crown required multiple visits to the dentist’s office, which included the use of impression materials and a temporary crown while the patient waited for the final restoration to be fabricated at a dental laboratory. With CEREC, you can leave our office with a beautifully crafted, custom all-porcelain crown completed at your first visit. There is no need for a temporary restoration, and all impressions are digital. This means that you do not need to deal with the discomfort of impression putties; simply sit back and relax while Dr. Rauk creates a 3D digital model of your teeth with the CEREC camera. This information is then transmitted to our in-office milling unit where your beautiful new crown is created from tooth-colored porcelain.

CEREC technology also allows Dr. Rauk to preserve more of your natural tooth when preparing your restoration. The advanced design and fabrication process ensures a precise fit for ultimate comfort and exceptional aesthetics. Because the tooth-colored ceramic material used to create your crown is resistant to plaque and stains, your smile will continue to look naturally beautiful for years to come.


CEREC and CAD/CAM technology allow Dr. Rauk to repair damaged smiles faster and more efficiently. Contact us today to learn more about how this advanced software and technology can restore your smile in just one visit. We look forward to serving you.
