When you need a dental crown, you want prompt, effective, and long-lasting treatment—you want a CEREC crown. CEREC technology has revolutionized the way that dentists place dental crowns, making this treatment easier and faster for both the patient and the dentist. Our Glendale dental office is proud to offer CEREC technology to our patients—read on to learn more about what CEREC can offer you.
CEREC crowns are milled from pure ceramic to ensure a natural looking, strong dental restoration. The exciting thing that sets CEREC crowns apart from conventional restorations is that CEREC crowns are crafted and placed in just one appointment. This means that a computer will create your CEREC crown during your dental appointment.
Traditional crowns require multiple appointments. In the first appointment your tooth is shaved down and an impression is taken. Then your crown is manufactured off-site, so it may be weeks before your dentist is able to place your permanent crown. With CEREC technology, you never have to wait to get the restoration you need, and you don’t even have to bother with wearing a temporary crown.
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) technology uses 3-D dental imaging to create a digital blueprint of your restoration. Then the CEREC CAD-CAM (Computer-assisted design-Computer-assisted manufacture) takes this information and mills your permanent restoration in-office, while you wait. CEREC restorations are as natural looking and functional as traditional crowns, but they’re vastly more convenient than conventional crowns.
Our Glendale dental office can help you determine whether CEREC crowns are right for you and your dental situation.
