A CEREC crown is a state of the art restorative and cosmetic dentistry treatment designed to be as efficient and effective as possible. CEREC stands for the chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramic. What that means for you is a completed crown in a single visit to our office — banishing the multiple visits it takes to get a traditional crown — including wearing an uncomfortable temporary crown while your permanent crown is sent offsite to be made — to a thing of the past.
In most cases, a CEREC crown can be used in the same way a traditional crown would be. Crowns are used to help protect teeth that may be weakened due to root canals, larger fillings, nighttime grinding, chips and cracks, and other situations. The upside to the CEREC crown is that there is much less of a time investment when it comes to this cutting edge treatment.
What is the Process of Getting a CEREC Crown Like?
Before anything, we will first help you determine if a CEREC crown is the best course of action for your oral health plan. If it makes sense for your health and your budget, your appointment will continue with us taking digital impressions of your teeth to determine the custom shape and color of your CEREC crown. Your CEREC crown will be designed to mimic your tooth and fit in seamlessly with the rest of your smile. This mess-free scan will send your impressions directly to our in-house fabrication machine, which will make your CEREC crown on the spot. Once completed, we will bond the CEREC crown to your natural tooth and make any final adjustments necessary for a perfect fit.
What are the Benefits of a CEREC Crown?
Though CEREC crowns may cost a bit more than traditional crowns up front, they come with numerous benefits, including:
Convenience: A CEREC crown treatment takes a single visit to our office, which saves on visit fees. From start to finish, it is more than likely that you could even get it done on your lunch break without having to take any time off from work. There is virtually no recovery time, so you can get back to your busy schedule as soon as you have your new CEREC crown.
Effectiveness: Though the process of getting a CEREC crown is much more streamlined than that of a traditional crown, CEREC crowns are just as effective. They are long-lasting permanent restoration solutions that protect your natural teeth.
A natural solution: The look and feel of your new CEREC crown will rival that of your natural teeth. Even loved ones who know you well might be hard-pressed to detect your CEREC crown among the rest of your teeth.
