CEREC Dental Crowns: A Same-Day Solution to Damaged Teeth
If you have damaged or decayed teeth, it’s important to address the issue as soon as possible. Fortunately, you can now undergo cosmetic and restorative dentistry in just one visit, thanks to CEREC dental technology. With CEREC, you can receive custom dental crowns, inlays, or onlays all in one visit, saving you time and hassle.
What are CEREC dental crowns?
CEREC stands for CEramic REConstruction, and the technology uses digital impressions and a milling unit to create a custom restoration for your damaged tooth. The ceramic material used is strong and durable, and it closely resembles the composition of your natural teeth.
At Dr. Shay Markovitch’s office Westchester Smile Design, our team uses CEREC technology to design, create, and place your dental crown all in one visit. First, we create a 3D digital model of your teeth, which is used to design the dental restoration. Then, the milling unit creates the actual dental crown from a block of ceramic material, which is bonded to your damaged tooth.
Final adjustments can be made as needed.
The benefits of CEREC technology are many. Not only does it save you time and hassle, but CEREC restorations are also approximately three times stronger than those created in a dental lab. Plus, they blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth, making them aesthetically appealing as well.
