CEREC single day crown
CEREC or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics is an advanced dental technology which helps us create a crown in a matter few minutes. The equipment mills a porcelain block into desired shape such that it can perfectly cap the affected tooth. Do you have a tooth which is badly decayed or damaged? It is better to consult a dentist at the earliest to prevent further decay and damage. CEREC crowns or same day crowns, as they are commonly referred to, can help you restore the functions of damaged tooth in a single visit. Come speak to dental team at Keller, Texas to know more about how CEREC can recreate a healthy smile for you.
When is a Dental Crown Necessary?
- A tooth requires a dental crown when it is in a state where it cannot sustain on its own. When a tooth is severely decayed or damaged, it may need protection to prevent further damage. The protection is offered to ensure that the tooth remains in place. Following are some of the conditions where a dental crown may be recommended.
- Badly decayed tooth
- A tooth which is broken into two pieces
- A tooth with a large filling
- A tooth which has undergone root canal treatment
- Weak tooth
Among the different types of crowns, porcelain crowns are most widely recommended because they look very similar to natural teeth and have few wonderful physical properties. CEREC is a technology which can produce custom-fit crowns in a single day. The technology uses a camera that produces digital impressions. Our dental team creates a digital model of the crown with the help of digital impressions. The digital model is then fed to the machine that mill out the crown to precision.
How is CEREC Single Day Crown Produced?
Our dental team starts by taking digital impressions of the affected tooth with the surrounding teeth using CEREC Omnicam. A computer generates 3D digital impressions of the teeth. The bite too is considered when taking digital impressions. Our dentist prepares the tooth after this phase. This is done to create space for the crown to be placed. After the preparation of tooth, digital impressions are taken once again. Our dentist creates a 3D model of the artificial crown with the help of the digital impressions. The 3D model is fed to the equipment and a porcelain crown is milled. The crown is polished and we check the fit. On confirmation of fit, the CEREC single visit crown is bonded over the tooth.
