CEREC Same Day Dental Crowns Syracuse, NY
It has never been easier to repair a damaged tooth. If you have a fractured or decayed tooth that needs immediate repair, we offer a quick and convenient solution, CEREC dental crowns in Syracuse, NY. We can instantly restore your tooth with a CEREC same day dental crown, one of the most technological advances in dentistry in the last several decades. This technology creates computer-designed, life-like porcelain dental crowns in one visit to our office. Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are placed over a damaged tooth to fully restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. These restorations completely envelope the entire visible portion of a damaged tooth.
Do You Need a Dental Crown?
You may need a dental crown to:
- Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
- Restore a broken or severely worn down tooth
- Cover and support a tooth with a large filling
- Hold a dental bridge in place
- Cover misshapen teeth
- Cover severely discolored teeth
- Cover a dental implant
- Make a cosmetic modification
Some damage or decay may not be large enough to require an entire crown. CEREC can also be used for inlays, onlays, partial and full crowns, and veneers. With this conservative technique, the unsightly old mercury/silver filling and fractured tooth structure is removed, preserving healthy tooth structure.
What Are CEREC Dental Crowns?
In 2002, Dr. Craybas and Dr. Crumb invested in the CEREC system for our office, which has provided great benefits for our patients who appreciate the natural beauty and comfort of enamel-like restorations made from metal-free, biocompatible porcelain. The CEREC process starts with a digital camera that takes images to create a 3D picture of your damaged tooth and adjacent teeth. We use the CEREC software to custom design your new crown.
Next, the design is sent wirelessly back to our lab to the computer-aided milling machine. CEREC creates an extremely precise restoration, also while you watch. Two diamond burs work simultaneously to mill the restoration out of a solid block of ceramic material. This porcelain has the same hardness as enamel and expands and contracts with hot and cold just like enamel does. After about fifteen minutes of milling, your restoration is brought back chair side, where it is fitted to your tooth. Finally, we bond the newly milled restoration to the tooth by using state-of-the-art adhesive dentistry. The result is a beautiful, durable restoration, which is the closest thing to putting enamel back on your tooth. With CEREC restorations, there is no need to take impressions to send to the lab, and since it is completed in one appointment, there are no temporaries to worry about! The CEREC precise fitting restoration allows us to preserve and strengthen healthy tooth structure economically without wasting your precious time.
