What are Cerec Crowns?
Same day crowns, also known as CEREC crowns, are a modern dental technology that enables a dentist to create a custom-made dental crown in just one appointment. This eliminates the need for multiple appointments and temporary crowns, making the process more convenient and efficient for patients.
With same day crowns, the process of getting a crown is much simpler and faster. The dentist uses a special camera to take a digital impression of the tooth. This impression is then uploaded to a computer, where the dentist uses specialized software to design the crown. The crown is created, fitted to the tooth, polished, and bonded in place all within one appointment. From start to finish, getting a new crown typically takes about two hours.
One of the biggest benefits of same day crowns is convenience. Patients no longer have to make multiple appointments and take time off work or school to get a dental crown. They also don’t have to deal with the hassle of temporary crowns, which can come loose or break and require additional appointments to fix.
