CEREC Same-Day Crowns

Over time, teeth can become fragile from cavities, root canals, accidents, or even repeated dental procedures. To restore the natural strength and appearance of your tooth, our dentist uses CEREC same-day crowns. CEREC stands for Chairside Economic Restorations of Esthetic Ceramics. As the name suggests, Dr. Habecker is able to design your dental crown right in front of your eyes and place the permanent tooth restoration in one appointment.

Get Done in One Appointment

In the past, dentists relied on off-site labs to create dental crowns. This meant that patients had to wait several weeks with a temporary crown while a third-party lab made their permanent tooth restoration. Temporary dental crowns were often uncomfortable and didn’t fit right, which is why our dentist made the switch to CEREC same-day crowns.

Dr. Habecker will make your permanent CEREC crown in one appointment. This means you won’t have to take as much time off of work or school. We understand that you have a busy schedule, which is why we use some of the latest dental technology to make our patients’ lives easier.

How CEREC Works

Dr. Habecker plans, creates, and places your CEREC crown in one appointment. First, he’ll need to remove enough enamel from the tooth so the dental crown fits comfortably over top. Next, our dentist will take digital impressions of your teeth. Using these impressions, our dentist will then be able to create your ceramic crown right in front of your eyes using computer-aided design and manufacturing.

CEREC Same Day Crowns Holland Dentist

We have a milling machine in our office that will precisely sculpt your dental crown from a block of ceramic. Ceramic crowns look like natural tooth enamel and are strong enough to last for years. Our dentist will make sure that your new tooth crown matches the natural color of your enamel so you can smile with confidence. Once the crown is bonded to your tooth, you’ll be able to leave our office with your new smile.

Dear Patient Family,

The COVID-19 pandemic has been a difficult time for all of us. Many of you have been forced to wait for dental care and we appreciate your understanding while we kept our office closed to follow orders from the Governor's Office.

We are happy to say that we are opening our office for all patient treatment on June 1st, 2020. Our hours of operation will go back to normal, Monday-Thursday 8am - 5pm. We want you to know that there will be some changes at your next appointment. Please be patient with us as our protocols will inevitably change as new guidelines are released.

  • We ask that you use our parking lot as the waiting room.
  • Please wear a mask when you come into the office and leave it on until entering the treatment room. Homemade is acceptable.
  • Only the person receiving treatment should come in the building, all others will be asked to wait in the car if at all possible. The exception will be for our minor patients who may have one parent accompany them.
  • We will be asking you some questions when you arrive at the office and we will also be taking your temperature.
  • We will not be able to offer magazines, drinks, or toys at this time as they cannot be disinfected to our standards. Eventually this will change and we will be happy to offer our amenities once again.

These changes have been made to adhere to the latest CDC guidelines and for the benefit of our patients and our staff. We want you to know that our office has always taken the safety of our patients very seriously and that we will continue to follow the highest levels of sterilization and disinfection to keep you protected. If you would like more information on what measures we have taken we would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

We cannot say how excited we are to see all of our patients again and to provide for their dental needs. We look forward to seeing all of your smiling faces soon!

Dr. Habecker and Team
