Crowns in One Visit with CEREC
Say goodbye to temporary crowns and follow-up appointments! With CEREC, we take a digital impression and create a permanent, high-quality ceramic restoration—all in a single appointment.
During your appointment, we'll use an intraoral camera to capture a digital scan of your tooth and bite. We'll then create a fully virtual model of the restoration and send it to the milling unit located right in our office. Your permanent restoration is created while you wait!
If you need a new restoration—crown, inlay, onlay or bridge—get in touch to see if we can take care of it in a just one appointment.
High-resolution monitors in each exam chair let us go over x-ray results with you during your appointment. They also provide a great opportunity for patient education so you can better understand a diagnosis or recommendation through pictures and video.
Even better, in-chair monitors mean you can have your favorite music or tv show take your mind off things and calm your fears during the appointment.
Our patients love it!
"I had crown work today and was able to leave with my new permanent crown the same morning due to state of the art 3D printing. This is modern dentistry at its finest… I was able to watch Netflix from my chair while I waited for the crowns."

Our advanced technologies also include...
Digital X-Rays – provides more precise X-Rays, less radiation, immediate viewing, and tracking of patient's dental progress.
Dental Magnification Loupes – magnifies the view of the teeth making dental inspection easier and more precise.
Soft Tissue Lasers – allows for recontouring gum tissue and provides quick healing times with minimal bleeding and no need for stitches.
Dental Implant Systems – provide both implant supported dentures and implant supported crowns. Implants look and function like your natural teeth and don't need the support of neighboring teeth, unlike a bridge. Implants also help keep the jawbone healthy and intact.
Intraoral/Extraoral Photography – allows patients to better see and understand dental diagnosis and treatment. Allows for superior communication between Smith Family Dentistry and dental labs and other dental specialists. These pictures are great for "before & after" comparisons!
GURU – patient education tool provided to Smith Family Dentistry patients that enhance understanding about the treatments, procedures, and the services available.
Digital Recordkeeping – allows for easy transportation of files and records via e-mail.
