No more temporary crowns

Same Day Crowns - CEREC®

Palmer Dental Center is thrilled to be one of the few CEREC providers in Alaska. CEREC refers to computer-aided technology used to create dental restorations. CEREC provides the ultimate in digital dental technology. It allows us to fabricate all-ceramic crowns and tooth restorations in a single visit when used with our on-site milling unit, whereas traditional dental crowns take 2 appts. This means fewer appointments, no temporaries, and less chair time for you.


CEREC uses 3-D scanning technology to image the teeth so there is no traditional impression with goopy material needed. A special camera is used to take an accurate picture of the damaged tooth. This optical impression is transferred and displayed on a color computer screen, where we use CAD (Computer Aided Design) technology to design the restoration. Then CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) takes over and automatically creates the restoration while you wait. Finally, we cement the new restoration to the surface of the old tooth. The whole process takes only about two hours!


CEREC technology is also used in other dental applications like implant restorations, nightguards, and retainers. Palmer Dental strives to keep up with state-of-the-art dental treatment by continuously learning new procedures to help our patients, so you can feel confident you’re getting the best care.
