You’ve carved time out of your busy life to go to the dentist because you know that it is important. When you’re told you need a dental crown, you immediately envision multiple lengthy visits and shutter at the thought of rearranging your schedule, again. Luckily, you won’t have to. Advances in dental technology now allow for high-quality, durable restorations in a single visit. CEREC Same Day Crowns is a state of the art dental system which allows the dentist to use digital impressions to design, mill and place a crown all in a single office visit.
What are CEREC Same Day Crowns
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic. It is a system which allows dental professionals to take precise dental impressions without the traditional, yukky goop. These digital impressions are wirelessly transferred to a machine which mills the crown out of a porcelain block right in the office. The new dental crown is then stained to match neighboring teeth and glazed before being used to repair the damaged tooth.
Benefits of CEREC Same Day Crowns
CEREC Same Day Crowns are designed and fitted all while you are in the chair, so no additional visits are necessary to complete the process. Patients love that there are no messy impressions and they don’t need to wear temporary crowns for any length of time. CEREC crowns typically match neighboring teeth more closely than traditional crowns. The design and fitting process is more exact because the patient is in the chair from start to finish.
With CEREC there are no black lines or metal. Since the crowns are milled from a single block of porcelain, they are also strong and durable. If you have been told you need a dental crown, or think you might, schedule an appointment with our office. Come see how simple and easy CEREC Same Day Crowns can be.
