CEREC crowns are used for patients that have a cracked, broken, or injured tooth. They can also be used for dental implants. CEREC crowns are created the day of your appointment using in house computer aided technology. This allows our dentist to create the perfect fit, and provides quick and long lasting results in one appointment.
Typically crowns need more than one appointment, and temporary crowns are used while the patient waits for the permanent crown to be created and installed. CEREC crowns eliminate the need for multiple appointments, and can get patients their new crown that same day giving them the smile they have always wanted.
CEREC crowns are made out of durable ceramic or resin and are built to last for years. On average CEREC crowns last anywhere between 10-15 years or more if taken care of.
If you grind or clench your teeth we may recommend a mouthguard to prevent damage to the crown. Grinding or clenching your teeth can create damage, and cause the crown to deteriorate faster.
Good oral hygiene habits help to keep your crown looking and feeling healthy. Not only are CEREC crowns aesthetically pleasing, they are comfortable in the mouth.
