5 Advantages of CEREC Crowns vs. Traditional Dental Crowns
July 15, 2015

Dentistry has come a long way over the last few decades and with new technologies and procedures, going to the dentist doesn’t have to be an anxious experience. The development of CEREC dental crowns is one of the simplest procedures out there and our Kelowna dental clinic is one of the largest providers of this treatment in Western Canada. Dr. Mark Honce was an early adopter of same-day porcelain crown technology and with so many great advantages for our patients, it’s easy to see why we are passionate about this option for our patients.

Our Kelowna dental clinic has invested in the best technology, the CEREC MC XL, for your dental crowns.

Your time is valuable

One of the biggest reasons to opt for CEREC dental crowns over traditional is convenience. Everyone is busy and, even though we are very kind and funny, we understand that you don’t want to spend more time in our dental office than is necessary. With our CAD/CAM technology, we can create and insert your ceramic crown in one appointment, no temporaries necessary.

Fit like a glove

In order to craft a great crown for your smile, we use digital scanners to gather images of your jaw, tissue, and other teeth. This allows us to easily create a dental crown that fits your mouth comfortably.


The CEREC dental crowns deliver exceptional fit and comfort.

The right smile

When compared to traditional amalgam or gold crowns, ceramic is by far a better option; it is more biocompatible and mimics the physical and aesthetic qualities of natural teeth. Because we are creating a ceramic crown while you are right beside the dentist, we can ensure that we get the right colour to match your natural teeth. This ensures that you don’t need to make repeat visits to the office and you get the right smile the first time.

Strength for your pearly whites

CEREC crowns are crafted from a solid block of ceramic material, making them particularly strong and resilient. With few weak points created in the manufacturing process, you can be confident that your dental crown will last.

The test of time

When you opt for a skilled dentist who is experienced in CEREC crowns, combined with good homecare, your crown may last as long as 20 years!

Our dentists have invested in today’s modern dental technology and our Kelowna clinic is a leader in Western Canada for CEREC crowns, restorations and dental implants. Please let us know if you have any questions and we will be happy to help you get the right smile!
