CAD/CAM Restorations

CAD/CAM Restorations

The dentists at DDS Group provide same day crowns to patients in the financial district of NYC, near Wall Street. Contact us at 212-269-6655 to learn more or schedule your appointment.

CEREC® (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic) has revolutionized the process of fabricating dental restorations. With this advanced system, we’re able to use CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) to create dental crowns, inlays, onlays, and bridges right on our office.

This means instead of waiting weeks for crowns to be milled by an off-site dental laboratory and sent back to us for placement, your restorations are made right here in our Wall Street dental practice, usually on the same day as your initial visit.

With same-day crowns, you don’t need to make multiple trips to our office and you don’t have to fuss with a temporary crown while waiting for your permanent one to be ready for placement.

Why Choose Us?

When you are in need of a crown, knowing that you can get one on the same day you need it is exciting. But you want your crown to look natural and function well, too - and this means you just can’t settle for any crown. It is important to have a dental team you can trust to get the job done right. That’s what you find with DDS Group.

Your crown should be properly fitted and perfectly matched. And it should feel just right. Our team is highly skilled at what we do - and at using the CAD/CAM technology to ensure a beautiful outcome every time.

Here’s how our same-day crown service works:

We use the CEREC® Omnicam to make digital impressions of your teeth. Digital impressions using this small camera take minutes to create, making them faster and more comfortable than traditional impressions made with impression material. These digital impressions are also much more accurate, allowing us to get exact measurements of your entire mouth to make sure that your restoration will fit your tooth perfectly.

Once we’ve taken the digital impressions, we send them to our computer, where we use 3D technology to analyze how your restoration will interact with your other teeth and then design the restoration to our precise specifications using CAD/CAM technology.

Next, the dental crown that we’ve designed is sent to our in-office milling machine, which uses a solid piece of tooth-colored composite resin or ceramic material to carve your restoration. The result is a crown that is durable, aesthetic, functional, and well-fitted––the perfect combination of form and function. We bond the restoration to your tooth using a special dental cement, then cure it with an ultraviolet light. After we place your crown, you’ll be able to leave our office and enjoy your beautiful new smile.

CEREC same-day crowns look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. They last a minimum of 10 to 15 years, but may last much longer with exceptional care.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you care for a CEREC crown?
The longevity of a CEREC crown is directly related to the level of care it receives. Brushing at least twice per day, thoroughly flossing every day, and visiting the dentist routinely is the best way to care for these crowns.
How long does it take to make the CEREC crown?
It takes about 20 minutes - maybe even less - to make a CEREC crown once impressions have been taken and 3D images designed. This is incredibly fast compared to the regular dental crown taking at least a couple of weeks.
Will a CEREC crown stain?
CEREC crowns are highly resistant to staining. That means they are designed to match the current color of your teeth and are not often impacted by things like coffee.
Can CEREC crowns be whitened?

No. CEREC crowns are designed to blend in with the teeth around them. However, if you decide to undergo whitening treatments, whether over-the-counter treatments or professional whitening at your dentist’s office, the crowns will not whiten.

Does it hurt to get a CEREC crown?
No, it does not hurt to get a CEREC crown. The process is rather routine and local anesthetic is used to numb the area so that you don’t feel anything during the process. Once this wears off, you shouldn’t feel any discomfort, but if you do, over-the-counter pain reliever should be all that is needed.
When can I eat after getting a CEREC crown?
Because of the local anesthetic, your mouth will remain numb for a couple hours after the procedure. It is recommended that you don’t eat until this numbness goes away. Afterwards, you can return to your normal eating - just avoid any hard, chewy, or sticky foods for the first 48 hours or so following the procedure.
