Benefits of CEREC Crowns

Posted in Crowns

What is CEREC? CEREC is computerized technology that allows your dentist to create customized, permanent restorations like crowns, inlays, onlays and veneers. Just like lab-made crowns, CEREC crowns are cosmetically made to match your smile, but with a few additional benefits:

CEREC Crowns Make Same-Day Dentistry a Possibility

Traditional crowns have always required at least two appointments, typically 2 weeks apart from one another. Why? Because the crown is made in an off-site laboratory and must be shipped back and forth. If it doesn’t fit, it has to be re-made all over again. Not with CEREC! All CEREC crowns are made at the very same appointment, allowing you to complete your dental treatment all during one visit to your dentist. While your crown is being made, you can catch up on other dental work, have your teeth cleaned, or just sit back and relax until your crown is ready. 

They Fit More Accurately

CEREC crowns fit more accurately than any type of hand fabricated crown that is made in a lab. There is no room for human error, because all of the information and crafting is done through the computer. Your completed crown will fit better than any other crown available, with fewer (if any) adjustments needed. 

No More Goopy Impressions

All impressions for CEREC crowns are taken digitally, using a 3D scanning wand. The image of your prepared tooth is electronically transmitted through the sensor into the CEREC program. This data is then interpreted by the crown-milling machine. No more impressions, models, or mistakes! Everything is electronic.

CEREC crowns are permanent resin crowns that last for years. Call your dentist to see if CEREC is an option at their office.
