Teeth that have been damaged due to an accident or decay will require caps or coverings in the form of dental crowns to restore their functionality and appearance. Crowns are sturdy, custom-made coverings that fit over the visible portion of your teeth.

Dr. Irina Pogosian and Dr. Thomas Ohlson here at Comprehensive Dental Group in Stamford, CT, offers CEREC same-day crowns, which are much more convenient than standard crowns.

CEREC Same-Day Crowns: How They’re Made

Installing a CEREC same-day crown starts with prepping the tooth. The preparation will entail the removal of damaged or decayed parts and then molding the tooth to make sure that the crown will fit perfectly over it. This same step is also included when installing a traditional dental crown.

Next, your dentist will apply a thin layer of reflective powder and use a tiny wand connected to a computer to take digital images of the tooth that requires a CEREC crown and your entire mouth. Within several seconds, the computer will produce a 3D impression of your teeth. This will be utilized as the basis for your CEREC same-day crown.

CEREC Same-Day Crowns: The Magic of CAD/CAM Technology

The magic happens with the use of CAD/CAM technology, which is basically the software that will design and help fabricate your same-day crown while you sit back and wait in the dentist’s office. While waiting, your dentist will also choose the shade of ceramic material that will be used for your CEREC crown to make sure that it will match your other teeth. The crown’s design will then be sent to a machine that will craft your crown in just five minutes or so.

When your CEREC crown is ready, your dentist in Stamford, CT, will examine its fit and shape. Your dentist may also need to make some modifications to it to make certain that it will fit snugly and comfortably over your tooth. Once your dentist is satisfied, the crown will be capped over your tooth with dental cement.

With traditional dental crowns, you will need to be fitted with a temporary crown for two weeks or so while you wait for your permanent dental crown to be made. By contrast, you’ll be fitted with the CEREC crown in just one day.

If you've needed crowns on your teeth, you may recall the hassle of the process. A thick, goopy paste is used to make the needed impressions; it tastes strange and can cause gagging or choking. You probably visited your dentist's office multiple times for fittings and CEREC crowns other appointments before the crown fit properly. However, Comprehensive Dental Group in Stamford, Connecticut has totally streamlined the process by using CEREC 3D technology. you can now leave with your final restoration in just a few hours with little to no discomfort.


The CEREC is a computer-aided system used in the dental industry. Dr. Irina Pogosian and Dr. Thomas Ohlson use a small wand-like device called an intra-oral scanner to acquire pictures of your teeth. Through a computer program, these pictures are then made into a 3D image. From there, your Stamford dentist can create a model of your restoration on the computer in about 15 minutes. A 3D manufacturing device then carves out your new restoration on ceramic in just 20 minutes or less. The crown will fit perfectly, meaning there will be no need for follow-up appointments, extra anesthetic, or uncomfortable temporary crowns.


Because your Stamford dentist takes digital impressions of your teeth, you'll be much more comfortable than when you've received a traditional impression in years past. Traditional impressions are uncomfortable to wear and difficult to remove, leaving the pasty material behind. Digital impressions simply employ the intra-oral scanner; it rests in your mouth while a staff member at Comprehensive Dental Group takes a few pictures. The whole process takes minutes and there is no discomfort involved.


Taking impressions "the old way" with a tray full of putty isn't an exact science, meaning that the resulting restorations usually do not fit correctly the first or even second time. CEREC digital impressions, however, are incredibly accurate because the restorations are processed from high-quality images of the teeth. Digitally-made impressions have about 15-20 microns of error (which is less than the width than a human hair). Your crowns, therefore, are likely to fit as soon as they're finished being carved at your Stamford dentist's office.

The entire CEREC system provides a safe, comfortable and easy way to get a crown from start to finish. If you need a restoration and want to experience this technology, contact the dental offices of Dr. Pogosian and Dr. Ohlson today!
