Have you received traditional metal or porcelain crowns in the past that need replacement? Maybe you have new decay, a damaged tooth, or other dental issues that require treatment. Look no further than CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic) same-day dental crowns.
Gone are the days of the past when you’d have to schedule multiple appointments with your dentist to get restorations placed. With CEREC, you can get them in a single visit. Read on to learn more about the CEREC process and why Firefly Family Dentistry loves them so much.
What Is a CEREC Crown?
While the acronym is a little complex when you break it down, it simply means that we used advanced technology and computer-aided manufacturing to create your crown. CEREC eliminates the need for unreliable, messy putty molds that were once the standard for dental crowns. Digitally mapping your teeth and the space where we’ll put the crown removes nearly all errors, creating precise results.
The CEREC Procedure
To qualify for CEREC, we first ask all interested patients to come in for a complete dental exam with Dr. Matthew Sandberg and Dr. Thomas Sircher, so they can determine if the treatment is right for you. After we’ve decided this is the right next step, we’ll schedule your appointment.
After making sure you’re comfortable to begin the procedure, we take digital impressions of the affected area. CEREC utilizes multiple image angles to create a perfect 3D representation of the crown for your tooth. We send these images to our in-office milling machine that generates your crown.
Then, we check in with you to make sure you’re happy with how the results came out, permanently bonding the crown to your tooth once you’ve signed off on it. From there, you can leave our office with a renewed smile, stronger and more functional than before!
Benefits of CEREC Crowns
CEREC crowns have many unique advantages over traditional metal crowns, some of which include:
- Convenience: You can receive a complete custom-made restoration in just minutes without having to schedule multiple appointments.
- Personalization: Unlike metal counterparts, we can make these crowns fit seamlessly into your smile—so much so that no one will notice it’s not a natural tooth!
- Longevity: Getting CEREC crowns is an investment, as these crowns will last for years with proper care. Our dentists craft porcelain to be virtually stain-proof, making it just as easy to take care of the crown as your natural teeth.
- Affordability: CEREC crowns cost less than traditional crowns due in part to fewer appointments.
