At Knutson Family Dentistry, we strive to stay on top of the latest technologies to bring our patients the best dental care available at the most economical cost. Our newest, most exciting technology, CEREC CAD-CAM crowns, allow us to make your new crown in the office while you wait. This means no temporary crown and no second visit! Instead of taking a traditional impression, we scan your tooth using a blue-ray digital scanner. The image is saved in a computer and the crown is then designed right before your eyes. The crown design is then sent to a milling machine and a new crown is made out of a solid block of porcelain in 20-30 minutes. Once milled and polished, the crown is then bonded in place and you leave with your brand new crown! Depending on the particular situation, some crowns must still be sent to the lab, but most can be made right in our office.
