Advancements in technology have revolutionized the way we approach various procedures. One remarkable innovation is the CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) system, offering patients the convenience of same-day dental crowns. Polished Dental Care is at the forefront of this cutting-edge technology, providing patients with efficient and effective solutions for restoring damaged teeth.
What Are CEREC Same Day Crowns?
CEREC same-day crowns refer to the use of advanced computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology to create and place dental crowns in a single dental visit. Unlike traditional crowns that require multiple appointments and the use of temporary restorations, CEREC same-day crowns are designed, fabricated, and placed on the same day, providing patients with an efficient and streamlined experience.
Benefits of CEREC Same Day Crowns
- Time-saving: The most significant advantage of CEREC same-day crowns is the time efficiency they offer. With this technology, you can have your damaged tooth restored in a single visit, eliminating the need for multiple appointments and temporary crowns.
- Enhanced convenience: By opting for CEREC same-day crowns at Polished Dental Care, you can save valuable time and minimize disruptions to your daily life. No more wearing temporary crowns or scheduling multiple dental visits.
- Superior aesthetics and functionality: CEREC crowns are precisely designed using digital impressions, ensuring an optimal fit and natural appearance. These restorations are also highly durable, providing long-lasting strength and functionality.
Candidacy for CEREC Same Day Crowns
CEREC same-day crowns are suitable for individuals who require dental crowns due to various reasons, such as tooth decay, cracks, chips, or significant fillings. However, the candidacy for this procedure is assessed on an individual basis during a consultation with our Grand Rapids, MI dentists. They will evaluate your oral health, the extent of tooth damage, and discuss your treatment goals to determine if CEREC same-day crowns are the right option for you.
CEREC Same Day Crown Process
- Digital impressions: To begin the process, Dr. White or Dr. Hylen will use a special intraoral scanner to create a digital impression of your tooth, eliminating the need for messy traditional impressions.
- CAD/CAM design: The digital impression is then used to create a virtual 3D model of your tooth, which is used as a blueprint for designing the crown.
- Chairside milling: Using the CEREC milling unit, the crown is fabricated from a block of high-quality dental ceramic, perfectly matching the color and shape of your natural teeth.
- Bonding and placement: Once the crown is ready, it is carefully bonded to your tooth using advanced adhesive techniques. The dentist ensures proper fit, function, and aesthetics, making any necessary adjustments before permanently securing the crown in place.
