"There is no one I would trust with the dental needs of my teeth and my children’s’, other than Cranston dental group and specifically, our hygienist Chontelle. She is accommodating, professional and knowledgeable. She thoroughly explains everything and makes us all feel comfortable, in what is often an intimidating atmosphere. My daughters actually look forward to visiting her and having their teeth cleaned. You won’t find a better practice!"- S.P. / Google / Sep 29, 2021

What Are the Benefits of CEREC Same-Day Crowns?
CEREC has revolutionized the way restorative procedures are performed. Using computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), patients who suffer from decayed, cracked, discolored, misshapen, or broken teeth can have their crown procedure completed in one relatively short visit instead of two visits scheduled over several weeks. While this is a tremendous benefit under normal circumstances, imagine the benefits in an emergency dental situation where your tooth needs immediate attention! Same-day CAD/CAM crowns from Cranston Dental Group can bring convenience and comfort to your smile while also eliminating the need to wear a temporary restoration.
How Are CEREC DEntal Crowns Placed?
Every one of our CEREC restorations begins with a consultation where we thoroughly discuss the specifics of your treatment needs. If you're a candidate for a same-day CEREC crown, we will remove any decay and treat your damaged tooth before obtaining an electronic scan of the area. The scan provides us with a digital representation and allows our dental experts to custom design your crown to the precise shape, size, and color of your mouth. This information is then sent to our in-office milling machine to manufacture your restoration, a process that takes 4 – 20 minutes. Once the restoration has been made, we polish it and bond it into position on your tooth. In just one visit, you can have a new, custom ceramic crown that fits beautifully, feels great, and matches your natural teeth!
What to Expect After The CEREC Procedure
After your CEREC restoration procedure, it is imperative that you follow the at-home oral hygiene regimen prescribed by our team. This is important not just for a short time period following your procedure but should be an ongoing practice as well. In order to maintain healthy teeth, gums, and smile, we recommend scheduling routine dental exams and cleanings at Cranston Dental Group. At each appointment, we will assess your restoration and make any needed repairs or alterations that will help keep your teeth healthy. If cared for correctly, you should be able to enjoy your restoration for many years to come.
Does Insurance Cover CEREC Restorations?
In our experience, dental insurance will often pay a portion of a CEREC dental restoration. At Cranston Dental Group, our insurance professionals will work closely with your provider to help you determine your coverage and any personal costs. In addition to insurance, we accept a variety of convenient payment options and can help you apply for special patient financing.
