Creating Functional Same-Day Crowns with CEREC® Technology
How Does CEREC Work?
CEREC is a computer-aided design and manufacturing unit that can scan, plan, and create dental crowns in a single appointment. By taking digital impressions of your smile and uploading them directly to the unit, Dr. Dovgan is able to digitally plan a custom crown that will keep your bite aligned and blend in seamlessly with your smile. The system is completely customizable, and Dr. Dovgan can work with you to modify your proposed treatment plan to suit your unique needs and expectations. The CEREC milling unit will then create your crown from a single block of high-quality porcelain.
Are You A Good Candidate?
Same-day crowns are a good option for any patient who needs a dental crown almost immediately. Crowns are a great restorative option because they can address both cosmetic and functional concerns such as:
- Misshapen teeth
- Disproportionate teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Teeth treated with a root canal procedure
CEREC crowns are generally a faster and more cost-effective alternative to traditional crowns because they eliminate the need for outside labs and temporaries.
Benefits Of Same-Day Crowns
There are several benefits for those who choose CEREC same-day restorations. CEREC crowns are generally a faster and more cost-effective alternative to traditional crowns because they eliminate the need for outside labs and temporaries. Rather than using digital impressions, CEREC uses digital scans to ensure accuracy and comfort. The porcelain used for same-day crowns is also highly durable.
