Now, advancements in dentistry transform the entire dental experience to provide high-quality results and convenient care. Among one of the best technological advancements involves CEREC. This revolutionary new technology simplifies the process to receive restorations without compromising the final results. You can say good-bye to messing impressions, dark crowns, and temporary restorations with a same-day crown.
How is CEREC Different?
Although the traditional method to receiving a crown remains effective, it does come with certain disadvantages. You will require a temporary restoration and a second appointment to get the crown you need. This makes it challenging to accommodate your schedule. CEREC removes the barriers that may have otherwise prevented you from getting the crown that you need.
With CEREC crowns, your tooth is prepared similarly to that of the traditional method, but that is where the similarities end. Instead of using messy, foul-tasting impressions, 3D scans are used. This is a pain-free method to get high-quality images that provide greater detail. Not only does it allow your dentist to create your restoration with precision and accuracy, but it is also the perfect alternative for those with a strong gag reflex or severely damaged teeth.
After the impressions have been taken, the information is then sent to in-office CAD/CAM software—not a dental lab. Here, your dentist will set the specifics for your restoration down to the very last detail. It will be made to match your size, shape, and color preferences to look like a natural tooth. With it handled in-office, it reduces any room for error.
Once all the details have been set, the information is then sent to an in-office milling machine. It will create your crown from a single block of all-ceramic material in about an hour. By the end of your appointment, you will have a natural-looking restoration that has been bonded in place. There is no need for a temporary crown or a second appointment to save you time and money.
Experience the Difference with CEREC
CEREC is an excellent technology that can enhance your dental experience; however, not all dentists can offer it. To offer the service, they must complete additional training to become certified. If you are interested in experiencing the difference in CEREC, look for a qualified dentist in your area to create the restoration that you need in just one day.
