What is CEREC Dental Crowns?
In the past, patients who needed dental crown restoration scheduled two separate appointments to complete treatment. Thanks to the CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) system, our team is able to offer patients the same high-quality, custom restoration in a single visit. Using computer-assisted design and manufacture (CAD/CAM) technology, the dentist prepares the tooth, takes digital impressions that are sent to a chairside milling unit, where the crown is created. Finally, the crown is placed, and in a single visit, patients have a beautifully restored smile.

"In 1998 I started my dental trust with Dr. Kodish. His confidence, his kindness, and his results speak more than any words I can write here. Dr. Perez gave me excellent service on my recent visit. I am confident he will continue the excellent dental practice that I have had for years."- J.C. / Google / Aug 25, 2020

"Professional staff and clean environment. Would highly recommend!"- K.J / Office Visit / Jan 08, 2020
"If I could give more stars to Dr Kodish I would. My story starts with being in pain for 16 months, countless appointments with every dental specialist you can think of, a root canal (which the Endodontist now says was unnecessary), medications that none of them worked and I thought I was losing my mind and frustrated. Then after a teeth cleaning with my past dentist, he noticed me rubbing my face and randomly mentioned “that’s your Masseter”. I researched what that was and discovered that I checked all the boxes for TMD and there began my search for a TMJ/TMD specialist and found Dr Kodish, made an appointment and 6 weeks later I am pain free. Dr Kodish is very kind, compassionate and professional. He was very patient listening to my long journey to find relief for my pain and did a full evaluation to identify my issues and it turned out I had many and not one dental professional identified any of them. Dr Kodish is brilliant and I highly recommend KP Dental. They are a full service dental practice and I will not go anywhere else."- N.R. / Google / Mar 11, 2021

What To Expect with CEREC Same-Day Crowns
We are able to use a very high-quality ceramic material that matches your natural tooth in color and appearance so that your repaired teeth appear strikingly similar to the originals. The ceramic is non-abrasive, resistant to plaque, and is a vast improvement to the unsightly appearance of traditional silver amalgam fillings.
The restoration is nearly as strong as dental enamel which, is the hardest of all materials in the human body. At Kodish-Perez Dental Group, we always try to conserve as much of the original dental material as possible. The CEREC method is ideal for this because the material is firmly bonded gives your teeth great stability. Due to this, we can frequently dispense with the need to have a full crown.

CEREC Same-Day Crowns FAQ
How is a CEREC crown different from a regular crown?
A traditional crown can be made from ceramic but has to be specially made, which typically takes about a week. A CEREC same-day crown can be made the same day as your initial appointment with computer-assisted 3-D modeling. This means you don't have to wait to have your crown placed and can have the entire procedure completed in one day.
How long does a CEREC crown last?
Most patients can expect their CEREC same-day crown to last about 10 - 15 years or longer with regular dental checkups and good oral hygiene practices.
Do CEREC crowns look natural?
They do. Dr. Perez or Dr. Kodish will choose a ceramic shade that closely matches the color of the natural teeth around it — so it blends into your smile.
How long does it take to have a CEREC crown placed?
Unlike traditional crowns, a CEREC same-day crown can be created and placed in only one visit.
