What are the Benefits of CEREC Crowns?
The process of placing a dental crown can be lengthy. Many dentists have to schedule patients for multiple appointments during the process. The initial appointment requires that a patient come in to the office so that the dentist can prepare the tooth. A small portion of the enamel is removed to create a nice tight fit for the dental crown. Impressions are then taken, and the molds are sent to an outside laboratory for creation. A period of several weeks can pass before the new restoration is ready for the patient. When it arrives back to the dental office, the patient must come back for the placement of the dental crown.
At Starbrite Dental in San Jose, CEREC crowns can eliminate the time needed to create standard dental crowns. Dr. Munira offers CEREC crowns, which allows her the ability to provide same day restorations for her patients. This can eliminate multiple appointments and the time and energy needed for laboratory created crowns.
CEREC crowns are made in the office with a special computerized milling device. Digital impressions are taken of the patient’s mouth, and a dental crown is made from a block of porcelain by the dentist herself. Patients only have to wait approximately fifteen minutes to receive their restoration, and can have it bonded onto their teeth the same day as their initial appointment.
The primary benefit of CEREC crowns is the speed in which patients can enjoy their new restoration. Instead of several weeks, patients can have their crown in just several minutes, and eliminate another visit to the dental office for the placement of the crown. CEREC crowns are just as strong and beautiful as laboratory created crowns. The dental crown is bonded over the top of a tooth to protect it from damage, and is made to match existing teeth in order to give it a cosmetic, aesthetic appearance within the patient’s smile.
