How long do CEREC crowns take to place?

One of the primary benefits of CEREC crowns is that they are time saving. Traditional crowns may require two+ appointments with a few weeks in between, which is quite a significant time commitment for some patients. CEREC crowns can be placed in one appointment. The entire process can take between one and a half to two hours. However, the appointment time includes 30 to 45 minutes of free time for the patient while the CEREC crown is milled and finished. Our patients are free to use personal electronics, read or relax in the chair watching our TV during this period.
