When you have damaged teeth that need restoring, CEREC crowns are a great option. With advancements in the field of dental technology, we are now able to scan, design, and create a custom crown all in one appointment. Our Austin cosmetic dentist, Dr. Williams is pleased to offer patients this top-of-the-line technology.
What is CEREC?
CEREC® is a crown that is made in-office by means of a CAD/CAM system that uses three-dimensional imaging. The crown is made up of a high-grade ceramic that is compatible with the mouth’s natural tissue, creating beautiful, stronger teeth. Restoration with CEREC is designed to fit your tooth’s innate appearance and function, and is completed in a single office visit.
Benefits of Choosing CEREC
Choosing to use a CEREC crown over a traditional crown has many advantages. A few of the benefits are:
CEREC crowns are an alternative, time-efficient method to traditional crowns. Restoration with CEREC is completed in a single office visit, with no follow-up visit necessary, saving you time.
While some would think that a same day crown of high quality would cost more, it doesn’t. The cost is comparative to that of a traditional crown, but with the added convenience of a single visit.
- Comfort and Convenience
Since everything is done in the same day, there is no need for the potential discomfort or possible problems that may arise with a temporary crown.
The ceramic that is used in creating your CEREC crown is stronger than that of a traditional crown. Instead of the process of layering and pressing the ceramic, your crown will be made from a single, solid piece of material.
Although CEREC can be used as an option for a single tooth or multiple teeth, it is best suited for those patients who don’t require more than a few restorations. CEREC cannot be used in all cases. Since every case is different, you will need to have a consultation to make sure that CEREC is the best choice for your individual needs.
