Here’s What You Need to Know About CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns!

There are so many ways that a tooth can become damaged, from advanced tooth decay to physical injury. So, it should be no surprise that your local Paxton, Massachusetts, dentist offers a wide range of restorative dental treatments to preserve and restore a damaged tooth. One such option you are probably familiar with is a dental crown.

Dental crowns are a very effective way for dentists like Dr. Scott Siemen and the team at Paxton Dental Care to restore a damaged tooth. If the thought of a dental crown, requiring multiple visits and lots of preparation, already stresses you out, consider same-day CEREC crowns. One-visit porcelain crowns are very popular among patients who visit Dr. Siemen.

The CEREC Procedure

If you have ever needed a dental crown, you’ll likely remember it took multiple appointments, physical impressions, and a temporary crown. Many patients look upon crowns as an inconvenience due to having to wait weeks for their permanent crowns to arrive. With CEREC same-day crowns, you will walk into your dentist with a tooth requiring restoration and walk away with a fully restored tooth. 

CEREC same-day crowns are made possible by cutting-edge computer technology. The procedure will go something like this:

  1. Your dentist will start by taking digital images of the damaged tooth requiring the dental crown
  2. Following this, your dentist will utilize special CAD/CAM computer technology to generate a digital three-dimensional model of your tooth
  3. The digital impression created is then sent into the on-site milling machine, where your crown will be fabricated from a ceramic material. This part of the CEREC process takes about 15 minutes
  4. Once complete, the crown will receive a final polish and then be placed over your tooth and bonded in place

In the past, when you needed a dental crown, it would take a minimum of two appointments to your local dentist. Fitting in one appointment can be tough enough for those with busy lives. Fitting multiple appointments within the span of weeks can be nearly impossible! However, these appointments were necessary due to the steps that needed to be taken. 

First, your tooth must be filed down before a physical impression is taken and sent to a dental lab, where your crown will be crafted. In the meantime, a temporary crown would need to be placed until you returned to have your permanent crown placed.

With CEREC, none of these are necessary. A single appointment, requiring no physical impressions or temporary crowns, is all that is needed. Save time and effort, and choose CEREC.

Long Lasting Restoration

As long as you follow the care instructions provided by your dentist and practice good oral health care from home, your CEREC same-day crown can be expected to last up to 15 years or longer. Just make sure you continue to brush and floss as recommended by your dentist. This, in partnership with regular dental exams and cleanings, will help keep your CEREC crown in great shape for years to come.
