Same-Day Crowns with CEREC Technology
Dr. Siegel and Dr. Aviva Kramer are dentists who are very proud to have same-day crown technology at our office in Rockville, MD. Thanks to our state-of-the-art CEREC (chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics) machine, we are often able to manufacture a permanent crown out of high-end porcelain materials in less than an hour.
CEREC uses CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) technology. After we capture three-dimensional digital impressions of your bite with our cutting-edge CBCT digital scanner, we can upload those images to the CEREC machine. Then, Dr. Siegel uses the three-dimensional scan of your teeth to design a dental crown that will fit perfectly. Finally, with the push of a button, the CEREC machine fabricates the crown out of a block of porcelain.
Dr. Siegel is an expert in CAD/CAM dentistry. In fact, he has taught the method to residents in Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) programs. He has also brought CEREC technology to the Mid Maryland Mission of Mercy and Health Equity Festival, where he provided dental crowns to patients in need.
It's important to understand that this technology is no substitute for skill and experience. Although CEREC is in use in many dental practices, Dr. Siegel is an authority on achieving superior results using these tools. When you choose our practice, you can expect a same-day crown that looks just like a natural tooth and can last 15 years or more.

Before and After Dental Crowns
What Are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that dentists use to cover and protect damaged teeth. Crowns are used in both restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Nowadays, crowns are typically made of ceramic, porcelain, or other tooth-colored materials to look as much like natural teeth as possible.

Do You Need a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns can address a broad range of dental concerns. Our team may recommend a crown if you are struggling with issues such as:
- A severely decayed tooth
- A broken or weakened tooth
- A worn tooth
- Dental infection, requiring root canal therapy
- A misshapen or disproportionately small tooth
Relax with Sedation Dentistry
Many patients are hesitant to undergo restorative treatment because they have dental anxiety. If dental treatment makes you nervous, you can ask about our sedation services.
At our practice in Rockville, MD, we offer our patients oral conscious sedation. When you choose this option, one of our dentists will write you a prescription for sedative medication. You will take the pill before your appointment, and by the time we are treating your tooth, you will be in a calm, relaxed state.
Insurance and Financing
Many dental insurance plans will contribute to the cost of crowns. However, if you want a crown simply to improve the appearance of a tooth, that will be considered cosmetic dentistry and will not be covered. We can help you understand your insurance coverage before proceeding with any type of care.
For any costs not covered by insurance, or for patients who don't have insurance, we offer in-house financing plans. We also work with CareCredit®, a reputable lender offering a line of credit specifically for healthcare.
If you have any questions about paying for dental crowns, don't hesitate to give our office a call.
