At The Toothery, Dr. Jessica Bertoglio and our team are pleased to offer the convenience of in-office CEREC® technology for our patients seeking custom dental crowns to restore their confident smiles. This software innovation allows us to digitally design porcelain dental restorations in just one visit to our office in Hoffman Estates, Illinois.

With the benefit of CEREC® same-day dental crowns, there is no need for the inconvenience of temporary crowns since we use digital scans instead of dental impressions. CEREC technology is the latest in state of the art technology which allows us to give you high-quality porcelain dental restorations comfortably in just one visit, saving you both time and energy. Before CEREC technology, dentists required at least two visits to complete a custom dental restoration.

When you come in to have a crown restoration done, Dr. Jessica Bertoglio will shave down your tooth to prepare it for your new crown. Because she will use the CEREC scanner to create a 3D image of the tooth and surrounding area, there is no need for a waxed molding of the tooth and the area. Using CAD/CAM software to create a 3D model of your new crown allows us upload the image to a design unit.

After your new crown is designed, Dr. Jessica Bertoglio will use our onsite-milling machine to create the crown. Next, she will polish and stain the crown to blend in with your surrounding teeth and make sure you are happy with the appearance. After that, she will complete the process by installing the crown over the shaved tooth and cement it into place.

If you would like to know if our CEREC same day crown restorations might be right for you, or if you would like to know more about our same-day dental veneers, or dental inlays and onlays, please call our team at 847-893-9099 today. We look forward to helping you achieve the smile you deserve!
