Your teeth are everything. A poor smile could be brought on by poor dental health, an active lifestyle or a chance occurrence. If your teeth get chipped, cracked or some other form of damage, chances are you will need a crown to restore your tooth back to normal. In the past, this included a long, drawn out process with results that may or may not be the ideal replacement for your natural teeth. Today there is CEREC® technology, a revolutionary process that not only streamlines the entire process, but also benefits everyone involved.
One of the biggest benefits of CEREC® Same Day Crowns is that you can have the entire crown process done in one visit. In fact, in some cases, just a few hours! Not only does it cut down on time in the dreaded dental chair, but it also saves using up your vacation time you’re missing work to go to multiple appointments.
So, how do they do it? Instead of having that goopy impression stuff in your mouth so a mold can be made of your teeth, CEREC® does it all digitally with a machine, making the discomfort of creating your crowns a thing of the past. Once a digital impression is made by the computer, your crown is milling your new tooth with high-quality ceramic. This ceramic is not only compatible with the body, but has the same characteristics your own teeth do. If adjustments are necessary, everything is on-site to do so.
One of the main flaws of the crowns of the past were the chances that your crown will look and feel different slotspie.com than your natural teeth. With the CEREC® crowns, you will have a much more natural look. With 17 shades available, the odds of you not matching your natural teeth color is almost impossible. No more metal, no more black lines around the gum line… just a smooth polished crown that is fitted to your bite perfectly. Not only will it look and feel like your natural tooth, but there is an added bonus for CEREC® Same Day Crowns: they are very strong replacements. If you have sensitive teeth, your crowns will make that no longer an issue. They are designed to expand and contract to hot and cold temperatures so eat and drink to your heart’s content…but stay in moderation. Or you’re coming back… Less prone to cracks and flaws, making them the best version of other types of restorations.
