The CEREC Crown Advantage Marietta, GA

The CEREC Crown Advantage

Let’s face it; most of us have an agenda or schedule that doesn’t allow much time for dental treatments. That’s why it is important to find a dentist who stays at the cutting-edge of dental technology, which can tremendously reduce your time in the dental chair. The CEREC technology for dental crowns is a perfect example. Dental crowns that used to be an arduous two to three week process can now be delivered in a single day!

Purpose Of A Crown

Your dentist will suggest a dental crown when your existing tooth structured has been significantly damaged (by disease, decay or injury). When the damage is beyond what a filling can repair, a crown is needed. A crown is a cap that covers all visible surfaces of your tooth. It is fabricated to fit securely and comfortably over the affected tooth for proper protection and strength. Therefore, accurate measurements of your teeth are needed before the porcelain crown can be made.

The Old Process

Before CEREC technology, getting a crown was a two-stage process. The first appointment involved taking an impression of your teeth so that it can be sent to a dental laboratory for custom fabrication. A temporary crown is given at this point until the permanent model is ready. Once the “real” crown arrives, a second dental visit is needed to have the crown placed.


With CEREC, patients don’t have to make multiple trips to the dental office and they don’t have to endure messy impressions. CEREC uses the same high quality porcelain materials to make a permanent crown in the very same day. CEREC uses advanced 3D imaging, which allows precise measurements to be taken with minimal disruption to the patient. CEREC typically produces a custom crown in about an hour and there is no need to wear a temporary crown (which brings perils of its own).

When it comes to restoring your smile, you can take the easy way out without having to sacrifice quality. CEREC crowns offer unrivaled convenience and they are top ranked in durability and comfort. To learn more about CEREC same day dental crowns in Marietta, contact Gilreath Family Dentistry.

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
