Same-Day Crowns with CEREC

Same-Day Crowns with CEREC

Posted by AMAYA DENTAL on Feb 22 2021, 08:27 AM

CEREC technology is making heads turn in the world of dentistry. Not only dentists but patients find CEREC quite impressive, too, thanks to its convenient and swift restoration fabrication technology. The fabrication of dental crowns, veneers, bridges, and other dental restorations is quite convenient and less time-consuming with CEREC compared to the conventional methods.

Same-day dental crowns using CEREC technology

If you have ever got a dental crown to restore your damaged or severely decayed tooth, you would have a good idea about the hectic and time-taking procedure involved. The dentist would initially take a mold of your tooth using a gooey, putty-like substance, which will then be used as a reference for fabricating the crown. While the crown is being made in the dental laboratory, a temporary crown will be placed on the prepared tooth surface to protect it. It is usually ill-fitting and tends to fall off when you eat food or brush the teeth. Also, fabricating the crown could take up to two weeks in the conventional method.

As an alternative to traditional dental crowns, we would like to introduce same-day CEREC crowns to you. As the name suggests, CEREC crowns can be fabricated and bonded to the teeth on the same day of the initial consultation. This reduces the chair-time involved significantly and allows you to return to your personal or work life sooner. CEREC uses CAD/CAM technology, where the dental restorations are automatically milled out using computer-aided means. Here are some of the prominent advantages of CEREC crowns:

  • The teeth are digitally scanned and the images rendered are used to create a 3D impression. It will be used in a dental laboratory as a reference for fabricating the crown.
  • The patient would not have to bite into a gooey substance while the dentist takes an impression of your tooth. This is replaced by digital scanning.
  • The accuracy of the digital impression is excellent, which helps to fabricate a perfectly fitting crown. Once the crown is retrieved from the CEREC machine, the dentist would not have to make significant modifications to its contour or structure.
  • The dental-grade ceramic used to make these crowns offer excellent durability. This allows them to last for a long time with little or no repairs required.
  • Patients need not use a temporary crown in place of the permanent one, making it more convenient for them.
  • Most importantly, the entire procedure can be completed in a single visit to the dental practice.
