A Closer Look at Dental Crowns

dental crown
A dental crown is a custom-made restoration that caps the entire surface of your teeth above the gumline. They are made of various materials including ceramic, porcelain, and zirconium, and blend seamlessly into your smile. Often, they are used to restore teeth following treatments such as a root canal.

A Closer Look at CEREC

CEREC is a game-changing dental technology that allows the dentist to treat a tooth, craft the porcelain restoration, and restore the patient's smile in just one visit to our Scottsdale, AZ, office. CEREC technology eliminates the need for temporary crowns and multiple office visits, saving you both time and money. 

When providing same-day crowns, we take digital impressions of your teeth instead of having to use the messy putty impressions of the past. These 3D images allow for more precise design and accurate manufacturing of dental restorations, which is carried out entirely by computer-guided tools. The beautiful, durable ceramic restoration is designed to match the shade of your natural dental enamel, looking beautiful and providing the necessary protection for your tooth.

The Procedure In Action

Treatment Timeline

In most cases, we can treat your tooth and restore it with a crown in a single appointment. Some patients may need a crown made of a stronger material than the dental porcelain used in making CEREC crowns. In these cases, we will have your restoration crafted at an outstanding offsite lab, usually within about two weeks. In the meantime, we will provide a temporary crown.

Receiving a same-day crown involves:


You will meet with the dentist to discuss your needs and explain your treatment. After an oral assessment. Dr. Sielicki will determine which treatments will be necessary before placing a crown. 

Tooth Preparation

The dentist prepares your tooth by treating any bacterial infections or decay. After treating the tooth, further tissue will be removed to create a base for the restoration. Note that if you need a root canal, Dr. Sielicki will refer you to a trusted endodontist.


Dr. Sielicki will take impressions of your teeth to design a custom-made restoration. We match the shade of porcelain or other restorative material to your surrounding teeth for a natural-looking result. 


The digital impressions of your teeth will guide the CEREC technology in crafting your restoration for a precise fit.


Your dentist will check the fit and make any necessary adjustments before bonding the dental crown to the surface of the tooth.

How to Maintain Your Dental Crown

Here are some general tips from our dentist on how to extend the lifespan of your restoration:

Be Careful about Food Choices

Prevent dislodging or damaging your restoration by avoiding excessively hard or sticky foods. 

Practice Excellent Oral Hygiene

Floss daily and brush your teeth twice each day with a non-abrasive toothpaste. Attend regular check-ups at the dentist's office to make sure your crown is in good condition.

Avoid Erosion and Excessive Force

You can take measures to avoid wearing down your restoration. Refrain from biting your nails and opening packages with your teeth. If you grind your teeth, Dr. Sielicki will be able to tell, and she can discuss various solutions with you.
