CEREC - New Orleans, LA

Beautiful Dental Crowns In a Single Visit

When Sirona Dental Systems introduced their revolutionary CEREC milling in the 1980s, creating custom-made dental crowns for patients became much easier. Treatment with a traditional crown takes at least two visits. But using Sirona's CEREC milling unit, we can create a custom-made crown in a single visit. CEREC crowns are made from durable ceramic instead of gold or another metal. Ceramic crowns are biocompatible, making them safer and more resistant to wear over time.

CEREC stands for the “chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics.” It is a type of technology that allows your dentist to plan for, prepare, and place a dental crown in one appointment.

How Does CEREC Work?

If you need a dental crown and are eligible for CEREC, we will start by preparing your tooth and collecting all the information we need about its size and shape. Then, Dr. Canatella will send these important specifications to the CEREC unit, which will begin milling your restoration while you relax in our office. When your crown is complete, all we have to do is bond it in place, restoring its strength and appearance. In all, the process takes around an hour to complete.

Benefits of CEREC

CEREC offers a number of benefits for patients who need a dental crown. Some of the most significant advantages of this treatment include the following:
