When it comes to getting dental treatment our goal is to treat the problem as efficiently as possible. This is why our Mooresville, NC, family dentist Dr. Scott Langdon is proud to offer patients CEREC crowns.

In the past, getting dental crowns could be quite the process, but not anymore. CEREC crowns make it so much easier to get the restorative dentistry you need as quickly as possible.

What is CEREC?

CEREC is responsible for providing same-day crowns to our patients. Instead of waiting weeks to get your new, custom-made and permanent dental crown, our Mooresville, NC, general dentist can provide you with a long-term crown in just a single appointment.

What are the benefits of CEREC crowns?

Here are some of the advantages of CEREC technology,

Digital Impressions Only

Some people really loathe the putty used to make dental impressions. We totally get it! So you’ll be more than relieved to hear that CEREC doesn’t use these putty-type impressions. Instead, images are captured digitally. These measurements are more accurate than traditional impressions and it only takes a couple of minutes to complete.

Say Goodbye to Waiting

No one likes to wait, especially when they are waiting for a new dental restoration. By providing patients with CEREC crowns, our dental team can streamline the process and ensure that everything is done in-house during your one and only appointment. You will come into the office and leave with your brand new crown.

No Need for Temporary Crowns

With traditional crowns you had to wait weeks for your new restoration, which also meant wearing a temporary crown for a couple of weeks. Most people aren’t thrilled by temporary crowns because they are not nearly as durable and you may need to avoid certain foods. It’s really just a way to protect the tooth until your new crown is made. With CEREC crowns we can place your crown in a single visit, which means that you don't have to worry about temporary crowns.
