What if there was an easier way to get a dental crown with less hassle and downtime? There is, and it’s called CEREC, which stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This method of crown manufacturing has several advantages over traditional crown techniques which make it an excellent option for many dental patients. Here are some reasons why you should choose CEREC crowns.
Only one Visit
CEREC crowns are produced right in the dentist’s office without the need of messy impressions or an outside dental lab. Your dentist is in control of your tooth repair and can usually create and place your new crown with only one appointment.
Record on File
After your digital impression is taken with the intraoral camera, the image is saved on the computer. If you damage or lose your CEREC crown
, your dentist may be able to create a new one from the existing record.
Love the Look
CEREC crowns are made of a ceramic substance that can replicate the color and shape of your teeth, giving you a smile that looks natural, better. The material is as sturdy as gold or other metal but is less sensitive to hot or cold temperatures.
