The Benefits of a CEREC Same Day Crown
CEREC is an acronym that stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, specifically describing all benefits of the procedure.
- If you choose the CEREC method, you are scanned directly in your chair at Karmazin Dental with mobile technology, avoiding the need for bulky machinery or uncomfortable accommodations. Same day treatment with no impression materials.
- The process of CEREC is economical, costing both you and us minimal time and effort for a long-lasting solution. Restores strength, saves the natural tooth and is a permanent solution.
- The goal of CEREC is to create an effective and safe restoration using shade matching technology to produce a beautiful and strong replication of your teeth.
- It provides a metal-free alternative to typical filings and crowns, CEREC will produce aesthetically pleasing results for you, restoring your healthy smile.
- CEREC replacements are created using ceramic rather than metal to provide an alternative solution to tooth restorations.
CEREC Eliminates Impressions with Scans
If you have needed a traditional filling, crown, or veneer, you have been required to take an impression to achieve a close fit to the teeth in need of repair. These sloppy impressions are less than ideal and can result in a gag reflex response.
Unfortunately, the impressions are not always accurate or correct. This can result in improperly fitting replacements or the need to repeat the impressions. With the CEREC method, no impressions are needed. You simply endure a one-to-two-minute scan that is more accurate and effective than any standard impression can achieve.
It's a Team Thing. Here at Karmazin Dental, we invest heavily in recruitment of “A+” team members. Everyone on Team Karmazin has unparallel talent and an ongoing commitment to continuing education. No matter who you see at your appointment, you can be assured that you will be met with a wealth of experience and knowledge not to mention, unequaled customer service.
Not Insurance Driven. The restrictions and limitations that dental insurance puts on its members and Dentists is continuously changing and it is not always for the betterment of the patient. Our focus at Karmazin Dental is to provide patients with the best course of treatment for them, period. For patients without dental insurance, we offer and in house membership plan, which gives the power BACK to our patients. By removing the restrictions of what insurance says they will or will not cover, patients get to spend their money the way they want.

The CEREC Procedure with Acquisition and Milling Units
The CEREC procedure is comprised of two units responsible for scanning and producing high-quality restorations, the Acquisition unit, and the Milling unit.
The Acquisition unit is a computer containing a special program and unique camera used for CEREC scans. This mobile device is used to quickly scan the decayed or broken portions of the teeth in need of restoration.
After just a few minutes, the acquisition unit compiles all the data captured from the scan and begins to design the replacement needed for your treatment. The model will take Karmazin Dental approximately five minutes to design before it is sent over to the Milling unit for construction.
Using the information acquired by the Acquisition unit, the Milling unit creates the actual ceramic replacement for your tooth repair. Before the restoration is completed, the ceramic is in the form of a block. Matching the shade needed for your replacement to blend, we will take the selected block, insert it into the milling machine, and set the machine to carve.
The carving process will take between 10 to 20 minutes varying on the size and design of the repair. After the replacement is completed, the ceramic piece is polished and then bonded to your tooth, all while you are still relaxing in our office.
