If you have a tooth that has been damaged, is not aligned properly with the rest of your teeth or could be improved in its appearance, a crown may be the best solution for you. This is a preferred alternative when dental issues, such as cavities, have already been addressed, leaving a less-than-perfect tooth behind. A crown is a type of cap that will be placed over your tooth to make it look the way that it should. It will also make sure that your tooth functions properly. When it comes to choosing crowns, CEREC crowns can make a major difference for you.
What are CEREC Crowns?
These are crowns that use advanced technology from CEREC in order to design a ceramic crown for you on the day that you come in for your dental appointment. CEREC uses a computer and digital imagery in order to create your crown. Not only will your crown be created on site, but you will also be able to have it inserted and fitted that day. You won’t have to wait to have that attractive cap for your tooth. With CEREC, your wait time is reduced dramatically. You’ll leave our office that day with an enhanced smile.
Advantages Over Traditional Crowns
If you choose a traditional crown over a CEREC crown, it means you will have a longer wait. You will come in for your initial appointment. At that time, the dentist will either take a mold of your teeth or use digital imagery to get an accurate picture of the area of concern. The request for your crown will be sent off to a lab. You’ll come back on another day when your crown is ready. It’s a lengthy process that can get frustrating while you are waiting to have your tooth fixed.
Choose CEREC for Convenience
If you want an attractive crown that is ready as soon as possible, CEREC crowns are the way to go. When you get a crown from CEREC, you will be able to tell our dentist if you are satisfied as soon as the crown has been placed in your mouth. If you are not pleased, the CEREC technology is immediately available to make corrections.
