3 Ways CEREC Dental Crowns Make Life Easier! [BLOG]
January 18, 2018
Dental crowns are pretty common. That’s because they’re such a great solution for all sorts of dental problems. Crowns cover, protect, and in many cases, complete your smile and serve to keep it healthy.
But if you’ve gotten a dental crown at a practice that didn’t offer CEREC same-day crowns, chances are you know all about the hassle of making standard crowns. It’s usually a two-week waiting period, during which you’re left wearing a temporary, often poorly-fitting, dental crown until the permanent is complete.
Fortunately, none of this is an issue at Johnson Dental Care. You can find faster, higher quality, more efficient restorative treatment thanks to our CEREC same-day crown technology!
Today, we’re talking about just 3 ways CEREC dental crowns make life easier!
CEREC Crowns Are Ready Today!
It’s probably the most inconvenient part of dental treatment… wearing an uncomfortable temporary crown while you wait for your permanent dental crown to be made. This usually amounts to a two week waiting period.
Then you have to return for another appointment, which means more travel, more hassle, and more time off of work.
CEREC has taken all the hassle out of the restoration industry! While you sit in the dental chair, we use a computer to custom-craft your permanent dental crown with help of modern digital imaging. From there, it’s off to the milling machine, and off you go!
The time you save and the discomfort you avoid with CEREC technology makes it one of the most remarkable contributions to modern dentistry!
CEREC Crowns Are Permanent!
Although temporary dental crowns were a great solution long ago for tooth replacement during the lag time of waiting on a permanent crown’s fabrication, they’re just not that comfortable in many cases.
Temporary crowns aren’t made to be exactly like your permanent one. In fact, they’re often smaller than your permanent will be. This can make them very uncomfortable for patients, and two weeks of waiting for your dental crown can seem like an eternity!
But with CEREC, there is no waiting period. You can watch as we design your dental crown with digital images, and even witness the fast transformation when a gorgeous ceramic block is expertly fabricated in the milling machine to become your very own permanent, customized dental crown!
CEREC Crowns Are Comfortable!
If a dental crown doesn’t fit properly, you’ll suffer the consequences! You might experience painful chewing or biting. It could also irritate your gums.
No one wants to walk around in pain all the time simply because a dental crown wasn’t crafted well enough to fit comfortably.
But people do just that all the time. Usually, it’s because of the limitations of outdated methods for making dental impressions. Maybe you’ve experienced it before. The material is thick and gooey, and it can test your gag reflex because of how it spreads in order to mold every nook and cranny of your mouth.
Once the impression is made, a dental crown is designed to fit that mold. While this worked fine for many years, CEREC technology has changed the game for dental crown design.
Using advanced digital imaging, we can craft your crown more accurately than ever before. Once we design the crown, it’s placed inside of a milling machine that fabricates your permanent restoration right before your eyes!
Then we place your dental crown and shape it until it fits you perfectly and comfortably for a stronger, natural-looking tooth.
