The Benefits of Using CEREC for Tooth Restoration

The Benefits of Using CEREC for Tooth Restoration

A chipped, cracked, or damaged tooth can be easily fixed with a dental crown that works to support the remaining structure of the natural tooth. Today, crowns are an even more effective dental procedure with the use of the CEREC system, which reduces the crowning process to only one dental office visit. Here are some of the wonderful advantages you will experience when you opt for CEREC crowns:
No Need for Impressions
In order to match the shape and curve of your bite, traditional crowns require impressions of the teeth using messy elastic material. With CEREC, your mouth is mapped out digitally, which takes less time and poses no discomfort. The computer system then uses this information to sculpt a crown that fits perfectly with the rest of your teeth. CEREC crowns are the ideal solution for dental restorations in patients who may not have time for the office visits required for traditional crowns or dental implants.
No Temporary Crowns
The entire CEREC process is performed while you are in the office, so you will not need a temporary crown while a permanent one is made in the lab. This allows you the freedom of enjoying your favorite foods right after your crown is placed.
Attractive Results
The restorations produced by CEREC are tooth-colored overlays that are hard to distinguish from your natural teeth. Where traditional crowns might be made from metal or bulky porcelain, CEREC crowns are remarkably durable yet incredibly non-invasive to the remaining healthy tooth.
