CEREC dental crowns are a quick and efficient way to mend your damaged teeth. They can also be used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of one’s smile. Our team at Lowery Smiles can use this technology to restore your teeth in just one appointment.
What Are CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns?
CEREC, or Chairside Economical Restoration using Esthetic Ceramic, is a modern technology that has revolutionized the process of restoring teeth. It allows our dental team to create customized dental restorations using ceramic in a single visit. The entire treatment process can be completed in just a few hours, and you can go home with your restored tooth that day.
What Are CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns Used For?
CEREC same-day crowns are widely used for cosmetic and restorative purposes:
- To cover teeth that have suffered damage due to decay, trauma, or periodontal diseases
- To restore teeth weakened by cavities or fractures
- To support weak teeth that are prone to cracks and fractures
- To hold cracked or chipped teeth together until a permanent restoration is prepared
- To cover metal, porcelain, ceramic, or composite restorations
- For cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of asymmetrical smiles and improve bite alignment
What Is the CEREC Same-Day Dental Crown Procedure?
Our dentists will conduct a thorough examination of your mouth to determine whether a dental crown is the right treatment for you. Once they conclude the need for a procedure, they will clean your tooth’s surface and take precise impressions of it. These are sent to our laboratory, where a CEREC machine will create the restoration in just a few minutes. You can view the 3D model on a computer screen before we finalize the design and shade. The restoration will then be prepared, polished, and cemented on your tooth using dental adhesives.
You may be asked to bite into different things during the treatment process to ensure that the crown fits you perfectly. This dental procedure has minimal discomfort and enables you to get back to your regular routine immediately after leaving our office.
How Long Do CEREC Same-Day Crowns Last?
CEREC same-day crowns are made out of high-grade ceramic material that gives them superior strength and durability. They can last for several years without any hassle if you maintain good oral hygiene habits. Schedule an appointment with our dentists to get your CEREC same-day crowns checked every six months to keep them in tiptop shape.
