CEREC® Same-Day Crowns
The team at McDonald Dental, is always happy to fix your teeth with CEREC® crowns. This is one of the greatest innovations in dental health care in recent times. In case you wish to take a break from traditional crowns, you could opt for this new advancement.
CEREC crowns, also referred to as single day crowns, take the shortest time to fix as compared to the other procedures. CEREC crowns are commonplace after the adoption of the CAD, or Computer Aided Designing Technology, and the CAM, or Computer Aided Manufacturing, for this dental procedure. With the two strategies incorporated into the CEREC Crown technique, the final results are usually functional and pleasing to the eye.
Benefits of CEREC Crowns
There are plenty of advantages associated with CEREC Crowns. The first is the fact that you only require a single visit to our office dentist. Secondly, the procedure is very cost-effective. Since it is done in a single appointment, you will save on transport costs and consultation fees. There is no need for a temporary crown, meaning you also save on this. CEREC crowns are very comfortable and are known to prevent tooth decay.
After it has been fitted, you should be able to use it immediately. All the functions of teeth, including speech, eating, and even smiling, need not be suspended. With the aesthetic nature of CEREC, its overall appeal is assured. Made from very sturdy material, the crowns are very strong. The resulting design of the crowns is very precise thanks to the CAD technology.
How CEREC Crowns are Fitted
During your appointment, our dentist creates a 3D impression of your mouth. This is meant to measure the area that the crown ought to be placed. A small camera does this. The dentist must be very accurate so that the result is exact.
After the 3D impression is taken, our dentist will review the resulting images on the computer before sending the data to the milling unit. Our office team paints and glazes every tooth according to specification. One of the things they consider is the tint of the rest of the teeth. The new CEREC Crown should resemble the rest so that it is not easily distinguishable. Bonding of the tooth takes place soon after.
Once the CEREC Crown has been fitted, you will not feel any change in your mouth. The aesthetic nature of the crowns should give you a nice feel. There should also be less sensitivity. If well taken care of, they last for between 10 and 15 years.
