CEREC® Same Day Crowns

While it used to take a couple of weeks to have a tooth crown made in an off-site lab, our Holland family dentist at Macatawa Smiles uses CEREC technology so the dental crown procedure only takes one visit.

This saves you the hassle of dealing with a temporary crown while you’re waiting for the permanent crown. CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.

CEREC Same Day Crowns Holland DentistIn the past, dentists would have to insert a tray of pink goop into your mouth to take dental impressions. Today, our dentist uses a handheld device to take digital dental impressions.

Once our dentist has taken pictures of your teeth, he will start to create your tooth restoration using a special computer program right in front of your eyes. When the design is complete, our dentist will send it to a milling machine that creates ceramic crowns right in our office. CEREC crowns make it possible for you to go home with a new dental crown in one appointment.

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
