CEREC Same-Day Crowns

The biggest shift in dentistry has been convenience. You know, my goal is to limit treatment time as much as humanly possible to give people a better result.

At some dental offices, it takes several weeks to get a crown from an off-site lab. But you won’t have to deal with the inconvenience of waiting when you choose Macatawa Smiles. Dr. Habecker offers same-day crowns, which can be placed in one appointment.

This saves you the hassle of dealing with a temporary crown while you’re waiting for the permanent crown.

Here’s what else you should know about same-day crowns.

Done in One Appointment

Our dental crowns are made by our very own dentist under our own roof. This means that you’ll be able to go home with your new dental crown in one appointment instead of waiting on a third-party dental lab.

CEREC also allows us to shorten your treatment time for other procedures, such as root canal therapy.

Here’s what two of our patients have to say about their experience at Macatawa Smiles.

During my root canal, the tooth was being made at the same time so I did not have to come back for a second visit.

After a root canal, a CEREC crown strengthens and restores the appearance of the tooth so you can leave our office with a healthy smile.

Comfortable and Convenient

In the past, dentists would use a tray filled with thick putty to take dental impressions. They would insert the tray into your mouth, then press it firmly against the roof of your mouth.

Not only was this uncomfortable, but it often triggered the patient’s gag reflex. While some dentists still take physical molds, Dr. Habecker takes non-invasive digital impressions.

During your appointment, he’ll wave a small handheld scanner over your teeth. This scanner will then take accurate and highly precise images of your teeth and send them to his computer.

Dr. Habecker will then use a shade guide to select a ceramic block that best matches the rest of your teeth. That way, your new dental crown will blend in with the rest of your smile.

Previously, I had one crown that was done and it was…a month-long process. Here, it’s outstanding. You sit in the chair, you wait, and an hour later you have it and you’re done.

After designing your new crown, Dr. Habecker will send it along to the milling machine in our office. The machine will then sculpt your new tooth out of a solid block of ceramic.

Once the crown is ready, Dr. Habecker will cement it onto your tooth. The result is a healthier, more attractive 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
