Amazing Results with CEREC Crowns

In cases where a tooth has been altered from its original shape and size, a dental crown may be in order. Crowns are bonded on top of a tooth’s surface with the dual purpose of restoring its functionality and protecting it from further damage. CEREC crowns are backed by well over 300 dental studies and continue to increase in popularity.

Many of our patients have busy lives and cannot lose weeks of time to traditional dental crowning methods. Opting for a CEREC crown bring the following benefits:

  • No temporary crowns
  • No messy impressions (digital impressions are used)
  • Precise digital imaging that acquires the exact shape & size of teeth
  • Perfect color blending
  • Quick procedures

Modern Digital Impressions

Whenever restoration is sought, an impression of the tooth (or teeth) is required. In times past, dentists would have patients bite down on a soft substance that would harden in the mouth. The result would be a physical impression that would sometimes have flaws if the biting tray shifted in any way.

The CEREC method fixes these issues because it utilizes 3D digital cameras to form exact optical impressions. The preparation for the impression only requires the application of a non-toxic, tasteless powder on the tooth or restoration area.

Computer Aided Design (CAD)

Digital impressions enable us to see every detail of our patient’s teeth. Consequently, when we arrive at the CAD phase of the tooth restoration, we can customize the shape of the restoration perfectly. CEREC CAD software raises the customization of dental fixtures to unprecedented levels, which significantly improve patient comfort.

Once the restoration is complete, we will bond the dental work to your tooth.
