CEREC Crowns

When a tooth is damaged, it is often common that a dentist will recommend a dental crown. Crowns are small synthetic caps that can be placed over a tooth or a dental implant. They are designed to mimic the look and feel of a tooth and can be made out of many different materials. They are often used in restorative dentistry for broken, damaged, stained, or worn-down teeth. CEREC crowns are a popular choice in dental crowns.

Traditionally getting a dental crown could take weeks or in some cases months. Most dental crown procedures required 2 or more appointments. Often patients would even have a temporary crown while their permanent crown was designed and manufactured. CEREC crowns use digital technology to design and manufacture the crown in the office so that patients can have it installed on the same day.  

One of the core benefits of a CEREC crown is the aesthetic appearance. Your friends may not even notice that you have a dental crown because they so closely resemble natural teeth. Unlike resin, porcelain, or metal crowns, a CEREC crown mimics the look of your surrounding teeth.
