How Do CEREC Dental Crowns Benefit Patients?

What makes CEREC technology so beneficial to patients in need of restorative dental care? By relying on this technology, your dentist can provide you with a life-like, custom dental crown after just a single appointment. This means you will have the support you need for a vulnerable tooth without being forced to wait for a dental lab to create your restoration. CEREC technology makes it possible for your dentist to record necessary measurements of your tooth digitally, and use that information to design your crown in-house. A milling machine will then produce the ceramic crown, which can be placed on your tooth that day. 

Receiving Important Dental Care In Less Time

Receiving important dental care in less time means a faster recovery from an ongoing issue with your smile. Tooth decay and dental damage can make a tooth too sore or sensitive to use when you bite or chew. This can interfere with your ability to practice regular dental functions, and generally leave you feeling unpleasant.

Individuals who do not have a one-visit crown can be stuck depending on a temporary crown while they wait. While these crowns can help, they can be a poor fit, and may be lost, leaving your tooth vulnerable.

Your Dental Crown Can Offer Support That Will Last For Many Years

Your crown will provide you with lasting support, and should stay in great condition for many years. Practicing smart preventive dental care by brushing and flossing regularly will help preserve your restoration, as will breaking any habit of chewing on hard substances that could damage it. If you think you need to have an older crown replaced, you can talk to your dentist about receiving a new one.
