What is a CEREC crown?

The use of in-house CEREC technology eliminates the need for dental prostheses to be sent and made in a lab, which could take days, or even weeks before they are ready for the patient. It also eliminates the need for a physical dental impression, in which you have to bite down on a gooey putty for several minutes. The CEREC uses a digital impression to mill the crowns, as shown in the image on the left. The use of the Sirona Orthophos XG5 3D X-ray machine, CEREC Omnicam, and CEREC MCXL Milling Unit enables the precise creation and placement of any prosthesis in a single visit.
