CEREC Same-Day Crowns represent a significant advancement in dental technology, offering patients a quick, convenient, and effective solution for damaged teeth. Unlike traditional crowns which often require multiple visits, CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) crowns are made right in the dentist's office and are typically placed within a single visit. Using sophisticated digital imaging and milling equipment, Dr. Leaha Nels at Magnolia Family Dentistry can create custom-fit, durable, and aesthetic crowns that beautifully blend with your natural teeth.
Why should I get CEREC Same-Day Crowns?
Choosing CEREC Same-Day Crowns means choosing convenience, aesthetics, and efficiency. Traditional crowns require impressions, temporary crowns, and waiting times while the dental lab crafts the crown. CEREC, on the other hand, uses digital technology to design and produce the crown on the same day, eliminating the need for multiple appointments and the inconveniences associated with temporary crowns. Additionally, with precision technology, these crowns offer a fit and appearance that rivals traditionally made crowns, providing patients with high-quality results in a fraction of the time.
The Benefits of CEREC Same-Day Crowns
One of the major advantages of CEREC crowns is the time you save. Traditional crown processes can take weeks from start to finish. With CEREC, you're looking at a few hours in the dentist's chair, after which you walk out with a brand-new crown. No more multiple visits or waiting for labs – it’s instant gratification for your dental needs.
Precision and Comfort
Digital impressions taken for CEREC crowns are not only quicker than traditional molds but also far more accurate. This precision ensures that your crown fits perfectly, minimizing potential discomfort and reducing the chances of further adjustments or issues down the road.
Durability and Aesthetics
Made from high-quality ceramic, CEREC crowns are known for their durability. They're also tailored to match the color of your surrounding teeth, resulting in a natural-looking restoration that's both functional and cosmetically appealing.
The CEREC Same-Day Crowns Treatment Process
The process begins with taking a digital impression of your damaged tooth. This is done using a special camera, creating a 3D image of the tooth, which serves as the blueprint for your crown.
Crown Design and Milling
Using the CEREC software, Dr. Nels will design a custom crown that fits perfectly with your tooth's structure. Once the design is finalized, the information is sent to an in-office milling machine which carves out your new crown from a ceramic block.
Placement and Final Adjustments
After the crown is milled, it's placed onto the damaged tooth. Dr. Nels will make any necessary final adjustments to ensure a perfect fit and bite. The crown is then bonded securely in place, and you're ready to go with a restored smile.
