What are CEREC crowns?
CEREC crowns are a technology for restoring damaged teeth. This restoration can be completed in a single visit to Dr. Chen’s office. It makes teeth stronger and more beautiful, all while keeping the teeth looking natural. The CEREC restoration is metal-free, and the high-grade ceramic material is compatible with the natural tissue found in the mouth.
These CEREC crowns eliminate patient’s discomfort of wearing a temporary crown and minimize the amount of time the tooth remains exposed. Normally, regular crowns are prepared and impressions are then sent to the lab for crown fabrication. The patient returns to the office for crown cementation typically one to two weeks later. During that time, the patient may endure tooth sensitivity and any problems associated with the temporary crown.
Why Choose CEREC crowns?
CEREC crowns use CAD/CAM technology to scan, design, and produce the crown to restore the damaged tooth. CEREC CAD/CAM technology is one of the first to be approved by the U.S. government. There are many advantages of using CEREC crowns over traditional crown technology:
Time – CEREC crowns are made in one visit, saving you considerable time away from your job and family.
Comfort – With CEREC crowns, there is no need for a temporary crown, eliminating significant potential discomfort.
Aesthetics – The strong, tooth-colored ceramic materials of CEREC restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and immediate function, and closely match the composition of your natural tooth structure.
Strength – Milled ceramic is stronger than the traditional method of layering and pressing, so your smile will stay beautiful for years!
Fillings – CEREC material and technology can also be used for fillings. Since these fillings are made out of porcelain, they are more durable than white composite fillings.
