What are CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns?
Like any type of dental crown, same-day ones are individually crafted from high-quality materials like porcelain and ceramic. They’re customized to fit over the biting surface of teeth that have previously been treated or are otherwise damaged or compromised. The primary difference between a CEREC and a traditional dental crown is that the entire process of creating a same-day crown is done under our roof instead of being sent off to a dental laboratory.
The CEREC Process
The first step of the CEREC same-day crown process is to prepare your tooth. This can occur after receiving a preliminary treatment like root canal therapy, depending on your situation. After removing a small portion of the enamel to accommodate the thickness of the crown, our team will capture a digital impression of the tooth that we’ll then use to craft a blueprint of your restoration.
The impression will be transferred to our in-house milling machine, which will be stocked with a solid block of dental porcelain. Facilitated by CAD/CAM software, the milling machine will begin sculpting the porcelain into a crown custom-designed for your prepared tooth. Once it has finished, your dentist in Alpharetta will clean it and ensure it’s the perfect fit and shade for your smile. Finally, we’ll complete the treatment by permanently cementing the restoration atop your tooth.
Benefits of CEREC Dental Crowns vs. Traditional Crowns
Many patients assume that the convenience factor of CEREC same-day crowns will make them more costly than traditional ones, but that’s simply not true. In many cases, they’re around the same price since everything is completed in-house by our staff. In addition to the process only taking around three hours versus several weeks, CEREC dental crowns are crafted from the same high-quality dental materials as traditional ones, meaning you’ll receive a restoration of the same caliber.
