In the past, it could take weeks or even months to complete the restorative dentistry procedure. You can get a completely new smile in just one day with CERECⓇ crowns. With this state-of-the-art technology, you can do what used to take weeks to accomplish in one appointment. Our dental experts and the dental team of Creekwood Dental Arts in Waco, Texas offer CEREC crowns in office and we want you to understand what you can expect from them.
Preparing the Tooth
The tooth is prepared before the crown is placed, just like with a traditional crown. The tooth will be filtered down, depending on how much decay is present, and a digital image of the tooth will be taken. The CERECⓇ unit also uses computer-aided modeling in our laboratory to create the restorative tool or crown.
Placing the Device
With typical restorative dentistry treatments, after the final crown has been created in the laboratory, you will have to come back after a few weeks. The crown is made by the CERECⓇ machine while you wait, and it is placed immediately afterward. On the same day as we clean the tooth, we position the permanent Crown. You get all the benefits with CERECⓇ crowns in one single visit.
The first and most obvious advantage of choosing CEREC crowns is perhaps the fact they require only one visit. Rather than just coming back and forth to the office, and then returning for the permanent crown, everything is done in one day. That saves you time and makes it more convenient for your lifestyle.
Also, you wouldn’t have to deal with a temporary crown and the unpleasantness and embarrassment that you might feel for several weeks when wearing it.
CEREC crowns are made of metal instead of ceramics and porcelain. This ensures the material matches your natural teeth as accurately as possible, in return, this gives you more of a natural look after the crown is placed.
