Dental Crowns with CEREC Technology

CEREC, or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, technology allows Dr. Timmerman to fit his patients with beautiful, ceramic dental crowns in less time and with greater, more dependable results.

The Dental Crown Procedure

After Dr. Timmerman prepares the tooth for a crown, an optical impression is captured using a digital camera. This process makes it much easier to customize a dental crown compared to the traditional method, which typically requires two office visits and the use of dental plaster and molds. Digital imaging takes no more than a few minutes, reducing your time and comfort in the dental chair significantly.

After the image is captured, Dr. Timmerman uses CEREC equipment to develop a three dimensional model that can be viewed on a monitor. CEREC software is then used to map out a customized crown that will fit perfectly over your existing tooth. The new crown is fabricated right on site using a special milling machine. Ceramic material in the same shade as your natural teeth is placed on the machine and a new crown is manufactured in a matter of minutes. Imagine having a new, fully customized dental crown to cover a broken or otherwise damaged tooth within just a few minutes!
