What’s the process of getting a crown?
Before CEREC technology came around, getting a crown took 2-3 appointments and required a notoriously uncomfortable temporary crown. Thanks to new techniques and technology, getting your crown is easier than ever.
CEREC crowns offer the following advantages:
- Highly accurate and comfortable digital 3D scan.
- Complete treatment in as little as one visit.
- We can preserve more of your natural tooth structure.
Examining and preparing the tooth
During the appointment, we will examine your tooth. If the tooth is affected by decay, we will remove the damaged areas and clean it. If your tooth has stress fractures, a crown will help protect the tooth from breaking along the fracture. Then we will shape your natural tooth so the crown fits comfortably overtop.
Shaping the Crown
Once your tooth has been prepared, we’ll use a 3D scanner to take a highly accurate digital scan of your tooth. We no longer require impressions or the use of trays. This 3D scan is used to create a digital model of your new crown. Your porcelain crown is made while you wait with our in-house CEREC machine.
Placing the Crown
Your new crown will be bonded in place right away. No second appointment or temporary crown is needed. Your dentist will make a few final adjustments and ask how it feels to make sure it’s a perfect fit. After a final polish, your new crown is ready to go!
Contact us today
to schedule an initial consultation & exam.
Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.
Frequently Asked Questions
If the tooth needs to be shaped or prepared in advance, you might experience some discomfort. Your comfort is a priority for us. If you’re nervous about any dental procedure, please let us know.
With proper care and maintenance, a crown can last 10 years or more.
A dental crown is maintained just like a natural tooth. Regular brushing and flossing keep your dental crown, and the supporting gum around it, healthy and clean. Regular cleanings and checkups at your dentist are essential to your oral health.
You must speak with your insurance provider to find out if they will cover your crown. After your initial consultation, we can provide you with a quote to take to your insurance provider.
We reserve the appointment slot exclusively for you. We do not double book. Therefore, we would ask that you give us 48-hours notice to cancel an appointment so we have time to offer the slot to someone else who may be waiting.

What Our Patients are Saying
Patient is Very Happy with the Outcome
Excellent dentists. Dr. Mo & Dr. Lamiaa. Sandi is superb. Kelly is awesome. Everyone there is friendly & pleasant. They are the best!
I made the switch to Dundas Dental Care last week and I couldn't have been happier with my decision. They have the latest in dental technology that are quite sophisticated and they even have Netflix while you're sitting in the hot seat. But the best part about Dundas Dental Care is that the staff actually care! They're all so friendly, warm, and positive. I saw several different professionals throughout my three appointments and all of them were so thorough, transparent and professional. Now I actually look forward to going to the dentist! :)
