You know if something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. However, not when choosing same-day crowns. Here are 4 amazing things you should about CEREC technology.

1. Completely Metal-Free

When envisioning a dental crown, you might see a silver or gold cap covering a tooth. Although restorations have been made of metal for generations, modern crowns are all-ceramic. They are completely metal-free, making them the ideal option for patients with metal sensitivities. Your crown will look just like a real tooth while avoiding common complaints of metal restorations, like darkening of the gum tissue or allergic reactions.

2. Durable, Long-Term Solution

Although same-day crowns are made in about an hour, it doesn’t compromise their durability or lifespan. While they don’t contain any metals, they can withstand the pressure of biting and chewing. They are proven to last for about 10 years before needing to be replaced; however, it’s not unusual for a crown to thrive for decades. You can protect your investment by committing to your oral hygiene at home and visiting your dentist at least twice a year. It’s also best to avoid anything that may damage your crown, like eating hard or sticky foods.

3. No Temporary Restoration

You don’t have to wait on a dental lab to create your permanent crown when choosing CEREC crowns. After your tooth has been prepared, your dentist will take a digital impression of your mouth to get the specifications necessary to create your crown. The information is sent to an in-office milling machine where your crown is cut from a single block of all-ceramic material. In about 1 hour, your final restoration is ready to be bonded to your tooth. You can skip the hassle of a temporary crown and a second appointment.

4. Improved Accuracy

The traditional impression process isn’t always reliable. You don’t have to worry about any delays in your treatment plan. Same-day crowns are created using elite technology. The digital impression system works with CAD/CAM technology. Your dentist will design your crown using 3D software to ensure it meets your exact needs to remove any room for error. You’ll benefit from unmatched accuracy to enjoy a crown that looks and feels like a real tooth.
