Fremont area patients ask, “What is the benefit of CEREC dental crowns?”
Dr. Munira Lokhandwala of StarBrite Dental invests in her patients by investing in state-of-the-art equipment for her practice. This includes the CEREC system. CEREC restorations, such as dental crowns, can provide Fremont area patients with same-day repairs that would otherwise take weeks at other dental practices in the community.
What is CEREC?
CEREC creates restorations such as crowns, inlays, onlays, bridges, and veneers. This method takes digitized impressions of the teeth and then sends them to CAD/CAM software, which sends the design to the milling machine, where the new restoration is milled from a block of ceramic. The time needed to create these restorations is about 20 minutes.
What is the benefit of CEREC dental crowns?
CEREC eliminates the lengthy process often needed for creating and placing restorations. At many dental offices, treatment with a dental crown can take several weeks. Patients undergo the preparation of the natural tooth and then have molds created. A temporary crown is bonded in place while the molds are sent to an outside laboratory sometimes states away for the fabrication of the new crown. Two or three weeks may pass before the crown is ready, and patients schedule another appointment for the removal of the temporary and placement of the permanent crown.
