One-Visit Crowns with CEREC Dentistry by Dr. Brad Greenfield

If you’ve ever had a dental crown, you know that the procedure can be irritating. First of all, you’re going to need two appointments. Then, you’ll wear a temporary, and if that temporary cracks or falls out, you’ll have to head back in to the dentist’s office for yet another visit.

Your time is precious.

I’m Dr. Brad Greenfield, and I don’t think you should have to spend any more time than is absolutely necessary in my office – though my team and I love to chat with our patients. Your time is simply too valuable. With modern CAD/CAM technology, my in-office CEREC machine allows me to design, fabricate, and place permanent porcelain crowns in one visit. One visit, not two, not three. One.

Instead of sending an impression to my dental lab, with CEREC I use a digital 3D impression and special software to design custom-fitted restorations. Your CEREC crown will be milled from a durable and CEREC Block that matches the shade of surrounding teeth. Once in place, your CEREC crown will be indistinguishable from your natural teeth. Only you and I have to know you’ve had dental work!

CEREC isn’t the best option for every situation. For instance, back teeth that must endure intense, crushing pressure are better off with a porcelain-fused to metal, all-metal, or zirconia crown. For teeth in the front of your mouth (those that show when you smile), CEREC is a practical and esthetic alternative to lab-made restorations.

What is a “winning” smile? It’s whatever you want it to be.

Only you know what your winning smile looks like. Maybe yours idea of a gorgeous smile brings to mind Brad Pitt or Katherine Zeta Jones. Maybe you think your fifth-grade teacher or second cousin had the most beautiful smile you’ve ever seen. But what is it about that perfect smile that you really like?

  • The whiteness?
  • The spacing of teeth?
  • The shape and size of teeth?
  • The gum line?
  • All of the above?

I’m Dr. Brad Greenfield, a general, restorative, and cosmetic dentist in Lake Orion, Michigan. I’ve helped many people fall in love with their smile and enjoy improved self-confidence after cosmetic dental procedures, like porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, cosmetic bonding, gum reduction, and white restorations.

If you’d like to improve your appearance, a smile makeover is a minimally invasive and quite affordable way to completely transform your image.

The first step toward your winning smile is a one-on-one consultation with me. Let’s sit down and analyze the aspects of your smile that you like, as well as those you don’t like. We can discuss your ideal smile and determine which attributes would look good on you. I’ll explain ways to brighten, reshape, straighten, and perfect your teeth, then we can talk about treatment options.
