Same-day CEREC dental crowns are an innovative restoration treatment for teeth that are moderate to severely damaged. These crowns are planned to restore your smile to its best health and function. The main advantage of CEREC same-day dental crowns is that you can receive your customized, natural-looking restoration in just one dental visit.
What are CEREC Same-Day Crowns?
CEREC comprises several computer-assisted design (CAD) tools and a milling machine that helps design tailored restorative devices such as crowns, onlays, or veneers. It provides an immediate solution for your dental requirements. As in the traditional methods, the tooth has to be completely reshaped before it is secured with a crown. The CEREC system makes use of an intraoral camera and CEREC software to produce a digital impression from which the crown is fabricated. The digital design is combined with the Chairside milling unit to manufacture a crown with a precise and comfy fitting crown.
What is the procedure included for CEREC Same-Day Crowns?
The CEREC procedure starts with the preparation of the tooth. Before reshaping the enamel, a local anesthetic is applied to numb the tooth in order to reduce the pain. A dental tool is employed to extract a portion of the enamel, and the tooth is entirely reshaped to fit the crown's size and shape. Once the tooth is prepared, its new impressions are taken. The CEREC impression process includes an intraoral scanner that captures several images of your mouth in a matter of seconds. The CEREC software combines these images into single three-dimensional pictures of the teeth and gums.
The next stage includes the use of digital representation to make the new crown. Once the patient is content with the design, the fabrication process begins with the digital image transferred to the CEREC milling unit. At this milling unit, a precise and well-fitting crown matching the digital design dimensions is created. After the crown is prepared, it is polished and fixed into the patient's mouth. The crown is permanently bonded into place after carrying out the required adjustments.
What are the benefits of the CEREC Same-Day Crowns?
- Metal-free: Since the CEREC crowns are made of ceramic crowns, you don't have to worry about being allergic to metals.
- Save your time: As same-day crowns are done in a single sitting, there is no need for additional appointments with the dentist.
- Tooth friendly: Same-day crowns also keep your tooth healthy as they require less drilling and save more of your tooth's structure.
- Restores function instantly: Same-day crowns restore all the functions of your mouth on the same day.
- Prevent injury: In the case of conventional crowns, your dentist gives a temporary crown until the permanent crown is being prepared. But, sometimes, the temporary crowns do not fit well and may come loose or even fall out. Same-day crowns help eliminate such problems as they are fitted immediately.
- Prevent decay: Dislocated temporary crowns may make room for decay.
