So, if you’re ready to step into the future of dental care, stick around as we delve into the world of CEREC same-day crowns and how they’re revolutionizing the patient experience at Accent Smile Center.
What are CEREC Same-Day Crowns?
CEREC is an acronym. It stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. CEREC represents a revolutionary technology that allows us to create and place dental crowns in a single visit. Unlike traditional crowns, which require multiple appointments and a temporary crown while a dental lab fabricates your permanent restoration, CEREC crowns are designed, created, and placed all in one day. This means you can walk into Accent Smile Center with a damaged tooth and walk out with a fully restored smile. CEREC crowns are made from high-quality ceramic material, ensuring they are durable and blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. With CEREC same-day crowns, you can say goodbye to the inconvenience and discomfort of traditional crown procedures and hello to a quick, efficient restoration process.
How Do CEREC Same-Day Crowns Work?
The process of getting a CEREC same-day crown begins with a comprehensive evaluation by either Dr. Gatgens or Dr. Densmore to assess your oral health and determine the need for a crown. Once confirmed, we use a special camera to take precise digital impressions of your tooth, eliminating the need for uncomfortable traditional impression materials. These digital images are then used to design your custom crown right in our office. The design is sent to an in-office milling machine that carves your crown from a block of high-quality ceramic. Once the crown is ready, it is polished and color-matched to your surrounding teeth for a natural look. Finally, the crown is bonded to your tooth, all within a single appointment. This streamlined process allows us to restore your smile quickly and efficiently, saving you time and discomfort.
The Benefits of CEREC Same-Day Crowns
One of the most significant benefits of CEREC same-day crowns is the immediate restoration of your smile. Instead of waiting weeks for a dental lab to fabricate your crown, you can have your tooth restored in a single visit. This not only saves you time but also eliminates the need for a temporary crown, which can often be uncomfortable and less durable. Furthermore, CEREC crowns are made from high-quality ceramic that mimics the strength, function, and aesthetics of natural teeth, ensuring a seamless blend with your smile. Additionally, the precise digital impressions used in the CEREC process result in a highly accurate fit, reducing the risk of discomfort or adjustment issues later on. Lastly, the convenience and efficiency of the CEREC process can potentially lead to cost savings, as it reduces the need for multiple appointments and temporary restorations.
Caring for Your CEREC Same-Day Crown
Maintaining the health and longevity of your CEREC same-day crown is similar to caring for your natural teeth. It would be best if you remembered to keep brushing and flossing regularly. These habits are essential to keep your crown clean and free from plaque. Use non-abrasive toothpaste. Furthermore, a soft-bristled toothbrush will help you avoid scratching the ceramic material. Flossing around the crown is crucial to prevent gum disease and potential crown failure.
Avoid chewing hard foods or objects with your crown to prevent damage. If you grind your teeth at night, put on a nightguard to protect your crown and other teeth from excessive wear.
Regular dental check-ups are vital to ensure the ongoing health of your crown and surrounding teeth. During these visits, Dr. Gatgens or Dr. Densmore will inspect the condition of your crown and perform professional cleanings.
Remember, while your CEREC crown is resistant to decay, the tooth underneath and the surrounding gum tissue are still vulnerable to dental issues, so good oral hygiene is vital.
