When it comes to restoring damaged teeth, CEREC crowns have become a popular option. This superb technology offers several advantages over traditional crown placement methods. In today’s blog, your Cleveland, TX, dentist discusses some compelling reasons why they are an excellent choice for restoring damaged teeth.
Strong and Durable
CEREC crowns are renowned for their exceptional durability, making them an ideal choice for restoring posterior teeth. These crowns are crafted from high-quality ceramic materials that are known for their strength, resilience, and longevity. They are able to withstand the daily wear and tear of chewing and biting, ensuring that they remain intact and functional for years to come. Moreover, the precise fit of your crown, achieved through digital scanning and computer-guided milling, enhances its durability even more. Whether you need to restore a single tooth or multiple teeth, CEREC crowns provide a reliable solution.
No Messy Impressions
One of the most significant benefits of this technology is the elimination of messy dental impressions. Traditional methods require the use of a putty-like substance to create an impression of the damaged tooth. This process can be uncomfortable and even induce a gag reflex in some individuals. Furthermore, it takes time for the impressions to set and harden, potentially prolonging the overall crown placement process.
With CEREC technology, a digital scan is used to create a highly accurate 3D image of your damaged tooth. This eliminates the need for messy impressions altogether, making the process far more comfortable and efficient for both patients and dentists. Additionally, the digital scan captures precise measurements, resulting in crowns that fit better and provide a more natural-looking restoration.
No Temporary Crowns
Traditional crown placement procedures often require the use of temporary crowns, which can be both uncomfortable and aesthetically unpleasing. These temporary crowns are typically made from a relatively weak material, which means they may not adequately protect the underlying tooth from further damage during the waiting period. Additionally, they can be difficult to clean which can lead to bleeding gums and sensitivity.
These custom crowns eliminate the need for temporary crowns entirely. Using computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) technology, the dentist can create a custom ceramic crown that matches the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth. The permanent crown is then precisely milled from a solid block of ceramic material while you wait. This means that you can leave the same day with a durable and aesthetically pleasing permanent crown!
