What are CEREC Crowns?
CEREC Crowns are dental crowns made using computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology. Unlike traditional crowns, CEREC restorations can be made in a single appointment. They are strong and durable ceramic restorations and can be color-matched to the surrounding teeth. These crowns offer a convenient solution for damaged or misshapen teeth.
Benefits of CEREC Crowns
There are many benefits of the CEREC system, including:
- Quick Turnaround: They can be made in a single appointment. This means that you will not have to wait weeks or months to get your new crown. You can walk into the dentist’s office with a damaged tooth and a brand-new, beautifully-crafted crown.
- Strong and Durable: They are made from high-quality materials that are strong and durable. They can withstand the wear and tear of everyday life and will last for many years with proper care.
- Natural-Looking: The crowns are made to match the color of your surrounding teeth, so they will look natural and blend in seamlessly.
The Dental Crown Procedure
Preparation and Digital Impressions
The first step in the dental crown procedure is to prepare the tooth. First, the dentist will numb the area around the tooth and then remove any decay or damage. Once the tooth is prepared, digital impressions will be taken of your natural teeth. These digital impressions will be used to create a 3D model of your tooth, used to make your crown.
CEREC Crown Fabrication
Once the digital impressions are taken, your crown will be fabricated using CAD/CAM technology. The CAD/CAM machine will take the 3D model of your prepared tooth and create a custom-made dental crown that is specifically designed to fit your tooth. The entire process takes about an hour, and you will be able to watch your CEREC crown being made right in front of you.
CEREC Crown Placement
Once your customized crown is fabricated, it will be placed on your tooth and checked for fit. The dentist will bond the crown in place if everything looks good. Once the crown is bonded, you will be able to leave the dentist’s office with a brand-new, beautiful tooth.
CEREC Crowns vs. Traditional Dental Crowns
CEREC crowns offer many benefits over traditional dental crowns, including:
No Temporary Crown
With the CEREC technology, there is no need for a temporary crown. This means you will not have to worry about your temporary restorations coming loose or falling out.
Shorter Appointment Time
The CEREC technology offers same-day crowns and can be made in a single appointment, typically about an hour long. Traditional dental crowns require two appointments, and the entire process can take several weeks.
No Need for Dental Impressions
With these same-day dental crowns, there is no need for dental impressions. Digital impressions are taken instead, and used to create a 3D model of your tooth.
