How Is It Done?

When you get a CEREC crown or “same day crown” custom made for you at Port Jefferson Smiles, you get to skip the messy molds and the second visit.

An intraoral camera is used to record precise images of your teeth. The doctor then uses the CEREC software to custom design the shape and form of your new crown. The design file is then transmitted wirelessly to a machine that mills out your new tooth! Many of our patients enjoy watching it be created!

Once it is milled, Dr. Halpern will add the finishing touches, confirm the fit and place the crown in a porcelain furnace.

Shortly after, your permanent crown that mimics the shape, form, and color of your natural teeth is permanently bonded to your tooth! It is that simple!

How Will It Look?
