Same Day Crowns with CEREC
There are numerous products emerging in the dental industry all the time and sometimes as a consumer, it can be hard to keep up with the latest developments. Your dentist should be on hand to talk you through any procedures you may have heard or read about and are interested in.
CEREC is one such emerging technique, which has been designed to make it easier to produce and fit made to measure crowns, and in fact, it’s so quick, the whole treatment can be done in one day!
In the past, fitting a crown could take numerous dental visits, with the crown being sent away to a laboratory for several weeks and a temporary crown being fitted. This often resulted in it being a fairly lengthy and costly procedure. However, with CEREC technology, your dentist can take a digital image of your tooth and produce a computerised 3D model within the dental practice.
The crown can then also be made on-site instead of being sent to the laboratory. It is designed and shaped by the highly advanced computer programme, which shapes the crown from ceramic. The ceramic comes in a wide range of shades, which makes it easy to match to the colour of the surrounding teeth. The whole design and production process can sometimes be completed within as little as 30 minutes.
There is no need for temporary crowns and you are left with a long lasting, natural looking, metal free tooth.
