CEREC Advanced Dentistry

Published: May 17, 2018

Dental crowns are a great way to improve your smile and to have better oral health when you’re missing a tooth or several teeth. The traditional process of getting a crown can feel time-consuming which is why CEREC same-day dentistry might be the right treatment method for you. Through advanced imaging and on-site technology, your dentist in Tampa, FL can craft a custom-made porcelain crown that can be fitted on your tooth in the very same appointment.

Benefits of CEREC Dentistry  

In addition to convenience, CEREC same-day dentistry offers many benefits over traditional crowns:

  • Color-matched to the surrounding teeth giving you a natural look
  • Strengthen your natural tooth structure and provide support to maintain jaw health
  • Made from digital impressions, which is less messy and cumbersome than traditional crowns
  • Preserves more of your original tooth

Same-day crowns are just as strong as the traditional counterparts. The durable porcelain used in making your crown is the same quality in traditional crowns that have to be sent to a lab to be created. CEREC technology uses digital 3D software to make the impression of your tooth. The machine that creates the tooth uses this model to craft it to precise specifications.

When the crown is placed over your tooth, the dentist can make minor adjustments and bond the crown that day. It’s not a temporary crown that will need to be removed in a few weeks. Your crown shouldn’t require any extra oral care. Just brush and floss as directed by your dentist and get regular cleanings. The dentist will check the crown at your semiannual appointments.
