Are you in need of a dental crown but don’t want to go through the hassle of multiple dental appointments? Traditional dental crowns often require several visits to the dentist, with temporary crowns that can be uncomfortable and unreliable. But with CEREC® crowns, you can get a high-quality, custom-made crown in just one visit!
At Cherry Hill Dental we use state-of-the-art technology to create a precise, 3D digital model of your tooth. Your dentist can then use this model to design and create a custom-made crown right in the office, using a milling machine to carve it out of a block of high-quality ceramic material. This means that you can have a new crown made and fitted in just one appointment, with no need for messy impressions or temporary crowns. CEREC® crowns are durable and long-lasting, with a natural-looking appearance that blends seamlessly with your existing teeth.
