It’s time to have your oil changed, so you pull into the nearest service station. They explain that they can switch your filter and give you some temporary oil. In a few weeks, you can come back to finish the process.
Would you stay there or would you drive up to the next station where you can get your entire oil change in one visit?
That’s kind of like getting a dental crown vs. getting a CEREC same-day crown at Advanced Dental Center. We’ve used this technology to help hundreds, if not thousands, of patients restore their smiles at our office in Florence, SC.

Bring Back Your Smile In An Afternoon
CEREC has transformed restorative dental care. You no longer need to wait weeks for a dental lab to create your crown. The CEREC process means you can get a natural-looking crown in a matter of a few hours at our office.
The process for getting a dental crown does not need to be complicated. It won’t be when you visit us. If you have a decayed, cracked, or broken tooth, a CEREC crown can have your tooth looking and feeling as good as ever.
By making a digital scan of your tooth, you won’t need to bite down on bad-tasting goo in an impression tray. That scan is sent to computer software that we use to design a crown that restores your tooth and blends in with the rest of your smile.
Our in-house milling machine turns a ceramic cube to reshape it. In a matter of a few hours, you can have a crown that fits your smile and is shaded to match the color of your natural teeth.
This isn’t a temporary crown that could come loose. It’s a permanent crown that restores the function of your tooth as well. That means you will be able to bite and chew normally once again.
Built To Last
If you’ve ever gotten a crown the old way (wearing a temporary crown, waiting weeks for a lab to make your crown, then returning to the dentist to have your permanent crown placed), then you may be skeptical about how durable CEREC crowns are.
Well, our crowns are made with porcelain or zirconia, both of which are known for their durability as well as their appearance. With proper care, these crowns can last for decades, just like the kinds you could get from a dental lab.
Caring for your CEREC crown is simple. You just do the things you already know you should do to care for your teeth. Brush and floss daily, and schedule regular dental cleanings and exams at Advanced Dental Center.
Don’t Wait To Repair Your Smile
Having a broken or decayed tooth can be frustrating. When you have these kinds of problems, you want to fix them as quickly as you can. That’s why CEREC same-day crowns are such a valuable part of our restorative care.
