How CEREC Works

Our dentist in River Bluff Dental uses computer technology to create your crown in-office.

A CEREC machine

After an exam and consultation at River Bluff Dental in Bloomington, MN your tooth restoration is quickly made using CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics).

In addition to creating a full, beautiful smile, the crown provides much-needed support in everyday activities like eating, chewing, and speaking. Getting a new crown or a crown replacement is easy:

  • Step 1

    The tooth or multiple teeth are prepared, and we take a digital 3D scan.

  • Step 2

    Our CEREC Sirona milling machine receives the scan and creates a unique crown made just for you (customized in size, shape, and color).

  • Step 3

    Your custom crown is placed and checked for a proper bite and fit. Now your new tooth replacement is ready to use!

Restore your tooth or broken crown in one day in Bloomington, MN.


  • What is CEREC?

    CEREC same-day crowns are a type of dental crown that can be designed, fabricated, and placed in a patient’s mouth in a single visit to the dentist.

    CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, which is a technology that uses computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) to create dental restorations, such as crowns, in the dental office.

    This technology allows for the creation of a custom-fitted and aesthetically pleasing dental crown without the need for messy dental impressions or temporary crowns.

    With CEREC same-day crowns, patients can receive a permanent dental restoration in just one visit, saving time and minimizing discomfort.

  • Is CEREC worth the money?

    CEREC is worth the money if you’re looking for a high-quality tooth restoration or crown replacement in one day.

    The convenience of just one dentist visit, plus the ability to instantly restore your mouth’s function, is a considerable value that traditional crowns made at exterior labs can’t provide.

  • How long do CEREC crowns last?

    CEREC crowns may last 10-15 years or even longer depending on the crown’s location, its use, and dental care.

    Ways to help a crown last longer include:

    • Avoid grinding teeth and wear a nightguard if needed
    • Visit the dentist for regular checkups and cleanings
    • Maintain quality dental hygiene at home
  • How much does CEREC cost per tooth?

    The cost of a single CEREC crown depends on each individual case.

  • Are CEREC crowns as good as traditional crowns?

    CEREC crowns are just as good as traditional crowns, but with the added convenience of being made in just one day.

    Traditional crowns typically require two or more visits to the dentist – one for the impressions, sent to a lab for production, and then the second for a crown fitting. A CEREC crown, on the other hand, is made in the office while you wait and only requires a single appointment.

    A significant difference in traditional crowns is that they can be made using metal, unlike CEREC crowns, made using tooth-colored porcelain or resin.
