What is CEREC?
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. It is a revolutionary new technology that lets dentists create high quality ceramic crowns right in the dental office, in just one appointment. You will not need to deal with messy dental impressions or wear an ill-fitting temporary crown. Here’s what to expect:
Chairside: It takes just 15 minutes to create a CEREC same-day crown. Your entire appointment, from removing all decay and preparing your tooth through placing your final crown, will only last one to two hours.
Economical: CEREC crowns cost less than traditional crowns that are made in a dental lab.
Restoration: A CEREC crown restores the function, strength, and appearance of your tooth.
Esthetic: We will color-match your new CEREC crown to your natural teeth for a beautiful yet natural look.
Ceramic: Your durable CEREC crown is made entirely of dental ceramic with no metal.
The CEREC process is simple. We simply take digital impressions and use them to build a 3D digital model of your smile. We then design your customized crown. When we are all happy with the design, we send it to our in-office milling machine, which creates your crown in just minutes.
Benefits of CEREC
Acrylic temporary dental crowns are uncomfortable and can be difficult to chew on. They are not well secured and can even fall out. You will not need to deal with this, since your CEREC crown will be created while you wait. In addition, since your permanent crown is delivered in just one visit, there is no need for a second appointment.
The metal frame of a porcelain-over-metal crown can show through as a dark line along your gums. CEREC crowns are entirely metal-free avoiding this aesthetic concern.
Like any dental procedure, CEREC same-day crowns are not right for everyone. We will carefully examine your teeth and gums, and help you select the right restoration based on your budget, needs, and treatment goals. For most people, though, a CEREC same-day crown is the best choice to restore a tooth that needs more than just a filling.
