Modern dental technology has changed the way patients received dental care. When it comes to getting a dental crown, the CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) system maximizes convenience and comfort at every step. In fact, patients can get a CEREC dental crown in just one office visit!
Not all dentists offer CEREC Same-Day Crowns, but finding one who does means gaining the following benefits:
#1 Superior Comfort
Past methods of getting a dental crown included biting on a tray of gooey pink putty to get an impression of a patient’s teeth. With CEREC, however, measurements and impressions are gathered digitally through sophisticated oral camera technology. Therefore, patients can avoid the discomfort and often gag-sensitive process of putty impressions.
#2 Highly Precise
Digital dental impressions of your teeth and gums are remarkably accurate, which translates to a better-fitting and more natural-looking crown in the end.
#3 Much Less Time in the Dental Chair
Tight on time? The highlighted advantage of CEREC technology is that you can get a permanent dental crown in one single appointment. The chairside CAD/CAM software will design your restoration before it is sent to an in-office milling machine for custom fabrication. Your crown is carefully carved out of ceramic or other tooth-colored material that is tailored to match the rest of your smile.
#4 No Temporary Crown
Before CEREC, dental impressions had to be sent off-site to a dental lab. In the meantime, patients would wear a temporary crown for a few weeks until the permanent one was read to be placed. Temporary crowns are unfortunately known for their discomfort and hassle. CEREC technology, however, produces your permanent, long-lasting crown from the start – no need to suffer through a temporary crown.
