How long does it take to get a crown?
Dr. Parshin is among the 10% of dentists who use the Cerec system to create crowns. Using this system, he can create a crown here in the office in just one visit, typically lasting two hours or less. This is a significant improvement from the traditional method of creating crowns in a dental laboratory, which requires two separate appointments spaced about two weeks apart.
Inlays and onlays are essentially partial crowns, and can also be created in a single appointment using the Cerec system. Dental bridges, which fill in the space for one or a few missing teeth, can also be created using Cerec.
