What Are CEREC Crowns?
With innovative CEREC® technology, our dentists and team can provide our patients with high-quality dental restorations in a single visit. CEREC allows us to provide customized dental crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays, and onlays in less time than traditional treatments. It also eliminates the discomfort of temporary restorations and the mess caused by traditional impression methods. Instead, CEREC uses advanced scanning technology to quickly and accurately create an impression of your mouth for your restoration.
How Does the Procedure Work?
First, our team will examine your smile and determine how best to treat your specific case. Once it is decided that a CEREC crown will work to fix your decayed or damaged tooth, we will take digital impressions of your tooth. After these images are taken, they are sent to a computer where specialized software allows our dentists to design and customize the crown to meet your desired specifications and needs. The finalized image is then sent to a milling unit where your restoration is created. The machine quickly shapes your crown using high-quality porcelain and matches it to the natural color of your teeth. The result is a durable restoration that will be beautiful for many years to come.
What Are the Benefits of CEREC Crowns Compared to Traditional Crowns?
You will find that when choosing same-day crowns in Dayton over traditional dental crowns, there is a multitude of benefits, some of which include:
- Your dental crown will be created during your visit, which means less time spent traveling back and forth to the dentist’s office to have your permanent crown placed. Whereas a traditional crown requires at least two dental visits, a CEREC crown only requires one.
- There is no need to place a temporary crown, as your finalized restoration is made in-house during your initial appointment. This cuts back on time and money spent visiting your dentist.
- The durability of a CEREC crown is the same as a traditional crown, giving you beautiful, stable, and functional results.
- There are no messy impressions involved with CEREC crowns. Instead, a scanner is used to capture images of your tooth, which are then transferred to a computer. Traditional crowns can require cold, dental putty that is messy and produces inadequate results.
