Same Day Restoration

Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati Cosmetic Dentist

Hardin Advanced Dentistry is one of the few dental practices in the greater Cincinnati area to offer CEREC one-visit crowns. “CEREC” stands for “ceramic reconstruction,” and is a high-tech way to manufacture high-quality, metal-free restorations, performed right at our offices. CEREC eliminates the need for messy impressions, temporary crowns and the need to have several appointments. CEREC metal-free crowns are made and placed in just one visit - you can even watch the entire process from your dental chair.

If you are interested in finding out more about how CEREC can create long-lasting, natural-looking restorations, please contact Hardin Advanced Dentistry at (513) 216-2935 to schedule a consultation.

What Is CEREC?

This groundbreaking technology eliminates the need for impressions to be sent off to a separate lab and places the crown-milling process in the hands of the skilled cosmetic dentists at our practice. Dr. Tara Hardin has received extensive training in the CEREC milling process, and seen the results on hundreds of patients.

There are multiple benefits to our Cincinnati CEREC crowns over traditional, lab-made crowns. CEREC crowns:

  • Are made in just one visit
  • Do not involve messy impressions or temporary restorations
  • Use metal-free, all-ceramic materials for your safety
  • Use precise color-matching technology
  • Do not have dark gray lines at the base like traditional crowns
  • Use digital imaging technology for increased precision
  • Are strong, beautiful crowns backed by decades of research

Restorations that Look and Function Like Natural Teeth: CEREC

The CEREC system is one of the most advanced in the industry, using 3D photography and CAD/CAM technology to create a metal-free restoration. The tooth restoration is created while you wait, without requiring a gooey impression that is then sent to a professional lab. The precision with which the impressions are crafted makes it possible to create a crown or inlay with a perfect color match, shape and size, while you wait. Crafted from biocompatible, metal-free ceramic materials, the tooth restoration is strong and stable. Once placed, it looks and functions exactly like a natural, healthy tooth. Contact us today and schedule a consultation for arguably the best CEREC Cincinnati has to offer.

Should I Get
a CEREC Crown?

If you are living with a cracked tooth, an old crown that needs to be retreated or damaged teeth, a CEREC restoration could be the right answer for you. Patients who currently have metal fillings often want to have these fillings removed, as they are unsightly, and some have concerns about mercury. Replacing older dental work with CEREC restorations makes it possible to restore a brilliant smile, free from the dark, unattractive appearance of metal fillings or the visible metal bases to our Cincinnati same-day crowns that show when you smile.

With CEREC technology, we can craft inlays placed within a tooth, or onlays, which function like a partial crown, as a more conservative treatment than full crowns. This allows for less natural tooth to be removed. Your dentist discusses all of the options available to you during your consultation at our state-of-the-art facility.

Watch the
Magic Happen

At Hardin Advanced Dentistry, we have garnered a reputation for our excellent dental work and our commitment to patient care and comfort. As a dental practice, we have chosen to make our office “patient-centric” in every way possible, so it feels like you are visiting a spa, rather than spending time at the dentist. With modern technological advances in dentistry and our dedication to using the most modern techniques, there is no reason to dread a dental appointment – we have done all we can to make every visit a pleasure.

If you need a dental restoration, we may advise you to take advantage of our one-day restorations and the high-tech advantages of CEREC, whether you need a crown, need to replace older dental work or need a partial crown. Every treatment is customized for the patient, as the dental arts are not a one-size-fits-all industry. Dr. Tara Hardin is in the top one percent of dental practitioners in education and training, and takes her art very seriously. You can expect top quality dental care and a crown, inlay or bridge that lasts for years into the future, with a perfect color match.

Will I have a temporary crown?

No! One of the many positives of same day dentistry is there are no temporary crowns. We will mill your restoration in the office and permanently cement it in place at the end of your appointment. Since we are combining two appointments into one, and there is some wait time for the designing and milling process, the appointment will be a little longer than normal. However, there won’t be any emergency phone calls about a loose or broken temporary!

Will my CEREC restoration look natural?

Yes! We have the ability to match the shade of your neighboring teeth before milling the restoration in the office. The restoration uses the same porcelain material that most labs make crowns out of anyway – CEREC same day dentistry just makes it more convenient for you! In most of the above cases, yes! Those who show too much gum when they smile are great candidates for laser gum treatment, also known as gum re-contouring, crown lengthening, or tooth elongation. If you show a lot of gum and your teeth appear stubby looking, you’ll be amazed at the results.

Are the restorations durable?

Yes they are very durable. The material has a much higher strength (about 4 times higher) than the old metal crowns with porcelain. The labs use the same material when fabricating the majority of their restorations.

How can using CEREC be healthier for me?

The greatest benefit in same day dentistry is the ability to be as conservative as possible while preparing your tooth. Removing only decay and old, faulty restorations allows us to preserve as much remaining tooth structure. This increases the bond strength of the final restoration and we can truly be minimally invasive.

Why should I get this treatment?

If you would rather take one day to get your work done, CEREC may be the option for you. The greatest benefits are the time factor and convenience.
