Your busy schedule doesn’t let up for something like dental work — but you can’t go on living with a painful, damaged tooth, either. When you need a dental crown, you need it fast. Guess what? One-day dental crowns are possible with CEREC, or chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics.
What Is CEREC?
Maybe you’ve already heard something about CEREC. It’s a new technology that allows your dentist to plan for, create, and place your dental crown in just one appointment. Everything happens all under the same roof. In addition to being super efficient, the CAD/CAM technology used with CEREC improves the fit and design of your dental crown, for a better result overall.
How CEREC Works
With CEREC, the need for physical impressions is eliminated. After capturing a 3D image of your teeth and oral structures, your dentist puts together a treatment plan and enters all of this information into the CEREC milling machine. This machine creates your dental restoration from a single block of ceramic in about half an hour. Once the new restoration is ready, your dentist checks to make sure the crown fits, feels, and looks as planned. Then your new crown is bonded onto your teeth. In just one visit, you can resume life with your healthy, complete smile.
Benefits of CEREC One-Visit Crowns
The traditional method for applying a dental crown takes two visits to the dentist. It also requires the use of a temporary device in the period between appointments, while the permanent restoration is created in a separate dental lab. This temporary crown is frequently associated with discomfort and malfunction — some patients must make repeat visits to the dentist to have their temporary crown repaired.
When your dental crown is created and placed in the same visit, you don’t have to take any extra time off work. You don’t have to deal with a temporary restoration, either. Thanks to one-day dentistry, patients can come into Canatella Dental with aching, broken, or injured teeth, and leave the very same day with fully restored dental health.
Additional benefits of CEREC one-day crowns include:
- 3D images are more comfortable than traditional impressions. This is a considerable advantage for patients with sensitive gag reflexes
- Digital imaging is also more accurate to aid in the treatment planning process
- No risk of miscommunication between dental office and separate manufacturing lab
- Ceramic used for CEREC crowns looks, acts, and feels just like your natural tooth enamel
