CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns
Dental crowns have several different uses. Many people find that they need one after a particularly large filling has become weak but too much of the tooth has been drilled away to replace the filling. Others will need a dental crown after they undergo root canal therapy. In some instances, people might get a dental crown to fix a misshapen or stained tooth.
Whatever the reason, if you have a damaged tooth and need a crown to preserve it, you now have the option of getting your completed crown in just a single appointment with CEREC technology.
What might you expect with CEREC technology other than convenience? You can expect a high-quality, natural-looking crown that blends in seamlessly with your other teeth. You can expect a restoration that enables you to chew comfortably. You can also expect to preserve your damaged tooth structure for many years to come.
What Does CEREC Mean?
CEREC is an acronym that stands for:
- Chairside—The crown is made while you wait in the dentist chair.
- Economical—The middleman (the fabrication lab) is left out of the picture.
- Restoration—The crown will give you back the form and function of your tooth.
- Esthetic—The natural-looking crown blends in beautifully with the rest of your teeth.
- Ceramic—No metal means no telltale dark ring at the base of your crown.
With CEREC technology, the old-fashioned, goopy impressions you remember are a thing of the past. Instead, we will take a digital scan of your tooth and send it to the CEREC machine. The process is easy and comfortable.
While you wait, a perfect-fitting crown is made that we can cement into place that same day.
Are Same-Day Crowns Good-Quality Crowns?
Absolutely! CEREC ceramic crowns are made to look just like your natural teeth. Only you and your dentist will know you have a crown.
If you have a crown from years ago, you might have noticed a thin line of metal that formed at the base of your crown. This is because of the metal used for making older crowns. With CEREC technology, these all-ceramic crowns will stay white and beautiful from top to bottom.
Why CEREC Technology?
We choose CEREC crowns in our office because of their high quality. We also want to provide convenience for our patients.
Not only can the entire process be completed in just one trip to the dentist, but you can skip the temporary crown altogether. Temporaries, which are made to last a couple of weeks while you wait for a traditional crown to be made, are prone to loosening and falling off entirely—often meaning yet another visit to the dentist.
