Female dental patient taking care of her same day CEREC dental crownsDr. Johnson is one of the only dentists in Monroe to offer CEREC crowns in his office. In fact, Dr. Johnson has been using CEREC since 2006. Thanks to this state-of-the-art technology, we are able to complete dental crowns in one visit, instead of two.
A same day crown is one where your tooth is prepped and the permanent crown is delivered all in the same appointment. This is made possible by 3D CAD+CAM imaging called CEREC.
By taking a virtual impression of your tooth, we can capture data to create a custom-milled dental crown right here in our office while you wait.
In some cases, Dr. Johnson may recommend a traditional porcelain crown. However, the majority of our crown treatments are completed in just one day.
