What is CEREC?
CEREC stands for CEramic REConstruction, and is a dental technology and methodology for quickly creating dental restorations such as crowns. If you need a crown, you’ll be pleased to know that by using CEREC, we can fabricate your crown in-house and place it on your first visit!
What is the process for creating a crown?
There are four steps involved in creating a same-day crown using CEREC: (1) scanning your teeth, (2) designing your crown, (3) fabricating your crown, and (4) placing your crown. We are able to handle each of these steps in about an hour, which means your crown is designed and placed in a single visit!
What are the advantages of using CEREC?
- We can create crowns that perfectly match the shape and color of your teeth.
- Crowns can be fabricated and placed the same day, which means there are no surprises or delays.
- The ceramic material is incredibly strong, much more so than some of the traditional methods of making crowns.
- CEREC can be used for other dental restorations as well, such as bridges.
What about cost?
You would think that these conveniences would make same-day crowns more expensive. But actually, since we can handle everything in-house, we can keep our prices very affordable!
