What Makes a CEREC Crown Different?

Posted on 12/7/2020 by Front Desk
What Makes a CEREC Crown Different?Dental crowns are protective caps that fit over broken/damaged teeth, or onto a dental implant. They are essential to protecting and providing function to your teeth. CEREC crowns are a unique type of crown. CEREC stands for “chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics”; keep reading to discover what makes CEREC Crowns different.

Fast and Durable

In addition to broken/damaged teeth, crowns may also be used to: protect teeth from more tooth decay, make cosmetic adjustments, and to cover large fillings or severely discolored teeth. You can never be too careful when it comes to damaged teeth, and that is why it is important to get quality crowns as quickly as possible. This is where CEREC crowns come in.

The most popular types of dental crowns are ceramic and gold and base metal alloys; CEREC crowns are ceramic, which makes them durable and easy to match to your natural teeth color, but slightly less strong than metal alloy crowns. Have no fear though, what make CEREC crowns so appealing is that you can get quality crowns on the same day that you ask for them; CEREC utilizes a 3D image of your tooth that is uploaded into a CAD (computer aided design) program that creates a CAD file, this file guides an automated precise milling machine in carving you a new crown in a matter of minutes.

CEREC crowns are metal free, so your crowns will not show any signs of not being natural. Due to the fact that these crowns fit so closely around your tooth, they are bonded with optimum strength and feel very natural. We hope that you now have a better idea of what CEREC crowns are, and why they could be the ideal option for you. Please call us if you have additional questions, or would like to schedule an appointment.
