CEREC® crowns have become increasingly popular because of the convenience and ease they offer patients who need dental restorations. Dental offices worldwide are beginning to implement CEREC crown technology as part of their services for patients who need quick dental restoration for decayed or damaged teeth. With the help of CEREC technology, dental crowns can be fitted efficiently and quickly within one office visit.
What Does CEREC Stand For?
CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. CEREC means that dental crowns can be developed at the dentist’s office and at an affordable price while helping patients attain their smile goals. This dental technology includes computer-aided design and digital scanners to help patients receive their dental crowns quickly, comfortably, and as conveniently as possible without sacrificing quality. With CEREC same-day crowns, you can resolve issues such as severely chipped or worn teeth within a single appointment.
What are Same-Day Crowns?
Same-day crowns are a type of dental crown that patients can get in a single dental visit. Traditional dental crowns usually need two appointments spread over a couple of weeks and the crown is milled in an outside laboratory. As a result, patients spend their first appointment preparing the tooth for the crown, having their teeth molds taken, and getting a temporary crown. You will have to visit your dentist’s office for a second appointment to have your new custom dental crown placed on the tooth.
CEREC same-day crowns eliminate the need for temporary crowns and allow dentists to prepare the tooth and fit the permanent crown in a single dental visit. CEREC’s advanced technology achieves this by giving dentists the tools to design and mill your new tooth in the dental office.
How Do CEREC Same-Day Crowns work?
CEREC dental crowns are developed in a single day. These dental crowns will work just like traditional ones, but they are custom-made the same day patients go in for their dental restoration. Unlike the customary dental crowns, CEREC crowns are developed by machines that use ceramic and imaging blocks to produce them. CEREC same-day crowns will restore a tooth that is weak or damaged and offer convenience because the patient will only need a single appointment to restore their smile.
Am I a Candidate for CEREC Same-Day Crowns?
A CEREC crown is a great way of achieving beautiful results as long as your original teeth can support the dental crown. Your dentist may recommend CEREC same-day crowns if you are experiencing the following issues:
- Misshapen teeth
- Uneven bite
- Severe stains
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Severely damaged or decayed teeth
Does a CEREC Same-Day Crown Look Natural?
When providing CEREC dental crowns, the dentist will customize your crowns to conform to the color and contours of your natural teeth. Therefore, this restoration will blend perfectly with your smile and look and feel natural.
How Long Will My CEREC Same-Day Crown Last?
With proper daily oral hygiene care, your new dental crown can last for ten to fifteen years or more.
What are the Advantages of CEREC Same-Day Crowns?
One advantage of CEREC same-day crowns is the convenience and speed of having this dental procedure done in one day, eliminating the need for multiple dental visits. In addition, this dental treatment eliminates the need for an ill-fitting temporary crown since your permanent crown will be fitted on the same day.
CEREC same-day crowns are also customized to preserve as much of your tooth enamel as possible and will blend perfectly with your smile. CEREC crowns are made from porcelain, which mimics the appearance and texture of natural teeth, making it ideal for an aesthetically pleasing smile.
CEREC crowns are more affordable than traditional dental crowns because they eliminate the need for multiple dental visits or temporary dental crowns, saving you both time and money.
Modern technology and great advancements in the dental field have made it possible to produce same-day crowns using CEREC technology. Today, most dental offices offer this solution for patients who need dental restoration for cracked, weak, or worn teeth.
