CEREC Technology Provides Our Patients With The Best Care in the Least Amount of Time.

One-Day Repairs Give Patients a Reason to Smile

Damaged or decayed teeth can make daily activities like chewing and speaking quite uncomfortable. Dental crowns are used for existing teeth that are chipped, broken, fractured, badly decayed, or treated with a root canal. The crown is placed on your tooth surface and cemented into position, acting as a cap to protect what remains of your natural tooth. A dental bridge comprised of porcelain crowns fused with metal is used to treat a missing tooth. The state-of-the-art milling technology Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC) enables getting a permanent dental crown in one day. Dr. Daniel G. Miller has many years of cosmetic dentistry experience including training in CEREC technology to provide customized, premium quality, same-day dental crowns, and bridges in Charlotte, NC.

At Central Avenue Dental our dentist and dental team are skilled in these restorative treatments and have the artistic eye to provide aesthetically attractive outcomes, as well as returning function to your tooth.

Traditional Crowns

During the dental crown process, your tooth is filed down and reshaped into a smaller size. Any tooth decay is removed from the surface of the tooth and the structure is restored to support the crown. If you have a missing tooth, a bridge is created with two or more crowns. Traditional crowns require a minimum of two appointments. During treatment, the dentist takes impressions of the damaged tooth using a messy, unpleasant-tasting dental putty that takes five minutes to set. The dentist creates a temporary crown that you wear until the final crown is ready. The molds are sent out to a dental lab where the crown is created, typically with a two-week turnaround. Frequently, the new crown needs refinements, so the dentist will place it and test it multiple times during this appointment. Some dentists use temporary cement to enable you to test out the crown before it’s permanently placed during a third appointment.

How CEREC Technology Works

Ongoing refinements in CEREC technology since its introduction in 1985 provide an unmatched combination of single-visit dentistry and excellent quality. A CEREC crown is a great option if you have a fast-paced lifestyle and wish to receive a high-quality crown in a short amount of time. In-office CEREC technology allows Dr. Daniel G. Miller to offer this flexible and versatile restoration option to patients. Using CAD/CAM technology and an intraoral scanner, he takes digital images of your tooth that provide exact dimensions and a blueprint for your new restoration. The instructions are sent to our milling machine and because the software is ultra-precise, adjustments if any, are minimal once the crown is placed.
Dr. Daniel G. Miller only uses CEREC for teeth that aren’t visible in your smile zone. He prefers to leave front tooth crowns and veneers to lab technicians that have the artistry to fabricate the most beautiful restorations. If you’re a suitable candidate for our in-house CEREC process, we’ll fabricate your crown and place it immediately. The entire treatment process for CEREC crowns in Charlotte, NC takes about 1.5 hours! This eliminates the need for a cumbersome process and multiple appointments. We also offer five-year warranties, as long as you follow recommended hygiene and periodontal appointments.
