Many patients grow tired of dealing with the hassle and inconvenience of traditional dental crown procedures. That’s why Dr. Peter Patellis and the team at the Kennett Center for Advanced Dentistry in Kennett Square, PA, offer a revolutionary solution — same-day dental crowns with CEREC

This innovative technology allows our Kennett Square dentist to create and place a custom-made dental crown in a single visit, eliminating the need for multiple appointments and temporary crowns. Explore the benefits of CEREC crowns and why KCAD is the best choice for your same-day dental care needs by calling 610-444-6311 and scheduling your consultation.

What Is CEREC?

CEREC, which stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, is a state-of-the-art restorative dentistry technology that allows our Kennett Square dentist to create and place custom dental crowns in a single visit. 

How Does CEREC Work?

  • Digital Impressions: Instead of using messy, uncomfortable impression materials, your dentist will take digital impressions of your tooth using a small, handheld camera. These digital impressions are then used to create a 3D model of your tooth.
  • Crown Design: Using specialized CAD/CAM software, your dentist will design your new crown based on the 3D model. This allows for a precise, custom fit that will look and feel like a natural tooth.
  • Milling: Once the design is complete, the crown is milled right in our Kennett Square dentist’s office. This process takes just a few minutes, and the resulting crown is made from high-quality, tooth-colored ceramic materials.
  • Placement: The final step is for your dentist to carefully place and adjust the crown to ensure a perfect fit and a natural, seamless appearance. They’ll make necessary adjustments to ensure your new crown is comfortable and functions like your natural tooth.

The entire CEREC process typically takes less than two hours from start to finish. This means you can walk into the dentist’s office with a problem tooth and walk out the same day with a brand-new, fully functional crown. 

The Benefits of CEREC Crowns

When you need dental crowns, CEREC technology offers a range of benefits, making it a superior choice over traditional methods. Here are just a few of the advantages:

  • Convenience: Having a new crown placed in a single visit is a major benefit for busy individuals who don’t have the time or patience to deal with multiple dental appointments. No more waiting weeks for your crown to be made, and no more temporary crowns that can be uncomfortable and inconvenient.
  • Durability: CEREC crowns are made from high-quality, tooth-colored ceramic materials designed to last. They’re incredibly strong and durable, often lasting for a decade or more with proper care and maintenance.
  • Natural Appearance: The ceramic materials used in CEREC crowns are carefully matched to the color and shade of your existing teeth, ensuring a seamless and undetectable result. Your new crown will blend in perfectly with the rest of your smile.
  • Comfort: Because CEREC crowns are custom-made to fit your tooth perfectly, they’re incredibly comfortable and won’t cause any irritation or discomfort.
  • Improved Oral Health: Traditional crown procedures often require removing a significant amount of healthy tooth structure. CEREC, on the other hand, is a more conservative approach that preserves more of your natural tooth, which can help maintain your oral health.

At the Kennett Center for Advanced Dentistry, Dr. Patellis and his team are proud to offer CEREC technology to their patients. We understand the importance of convenience, efficiency, and high-quality dental care and are committed to providing the best possible experience for everyone who walks through our doors.
