If you're interested in same-day crowns, contact Hansen Family Dental to find out if this cutting-edge procedure is correct for you.
What Are CEREC Same-Day Crowns?
Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC) is a new digital dentistry method that allows the dentist to construct a custom-designed ceramic crown to replace a decayed or broken tooth. The CEREC technology is used to shape and color the dental crown to fit the surrounding teeth. Your replacement crown will be placed by the dentist during the same session.
What Is the Purpose of a Dental Crown?
From a functional standpoint, dental crowns assist to protect a naturally defective tooth, such as one that has been chipped. Dental crowns are natural-looking and match the appearance of your other teeth, allowing you to have a beautiful smile.
Dental crowns are most typically required:
- A decayed tooth
- A broken tooth
- Severe discoloration of a tooth
- A chipped tooth
Procedures for Achieving a CEREC Same-Day Dental Crown
CEREC creates a 3D representation of your oral anatomy using digital imprints. The photos are acquired after our doctor has removed any decay and altered your tooth enamel in preparation for its crown. Digital impressions are significantly more comfortable than traditional impressions, which can be nearly unbearable for those with sensitive gag reflexes.
We'll transfer the digital blueprint to our in-office milling equipment once we've created a digital model of your tooth and its surrounding components. The dental crown is then made from a single block of porcelain.
The Advantages of CEREC Same-Day Crowns
- CEREC technology removes the need for several trips to the dentist's office to obtain your permanent dental crown.
- There is no need for a temporary crown because you will receive your permanent crown on your first appointment.
- CEREC dental crowns are made from a thick, robust block of porcelain that can endure wear and tear.
- The natural-looking crown that matches your other teeth
- Highly accurate digital images help the planning process, resulting in superior overall results.
