Nowadays, it’s easier than ever to repair a severely damaged or decayed tooth. Dental practices that utilize CEREC technology are able to instantly restore your smile using a high-quality restoration that can last decades. A CEREC crown is an excellent alternative to a traditional dental crown because it can be made in one day! Read on to learn more about this restoration and the timeframe of this advanced process.
What Is a CEREC Crown?
CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. It’s an advanced computer technology that’s designed to generate custom-made dental crowns in a short amount of time. If you have a damaged or weakened tooth, a CEREC crown can quickly repair it and get your smile back on the right track. The machine creates high-quality crowns that fit perfectly over the damaged tooth and blend naturally with your remaining teeth.
The CEREC Process
Believe it or not, the process of making a CEREC crown is fairly simple! Your dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any decayed dental tissue to ensure the crown will fit properly. Once that’s done, they’ll take a three-dimensional digital impression of your teeth and upload it into the CEREC machine.
Using computer-aided design and manufacturing, the machine will create the crown from a block of porcelain. Since the restoration will be made to match the exact specifications provided by the impressions, you can expect a natural-looking crown that’ll fit your smile perfectly! When it’s ready, your dentist will carefully place it over the damaged tooth, restoring its strength and appearance for years to come.
How Long Does It Take to Make a CEREC Crown?
It may surprise you to learn that it can take anywhere between four and 20 minutes to make a CEREC crown. That’s quite impressive compared to the two-to-three weeks that it takes for a traditional dental crown to be made! Of course, the entire process of getting a CEREC crown can take up to two hours. This method is extremely convenient for patients who have very busy lives or struggle to visit a dentist on a regular basis.
As you can see, getting a CEREC crown does not take long at all. You can repair your damaged teeth in as little as two hours! All it takes is a single visit to strengthen your teeth and have a beautiful smile.
