What are CEREC Same-Day Crowns?
Our Hobart dentist may recommend a dental crown to restore a tooth with significant injury or decay. What makes a CEREC crown different from one made by a lab is that we handle the entire process under our own roof. This means that you won’t have to return to our office for a second appointment.
Thefits like a cap over your tooth, restoring its full strength, function, and appearance.
How Does Getting a CEREC Crown Work?
To create adequate space for the CEREC dental crown, we’ll need to file down and shape the receiving tooth. Next, we’ll take digital impressions of your teeth and craft your dental crown using computer-aided design and manufacturing.
When our dentist is finished with the design, he’ll send it to the milling machine in our office. This sophisticated piece of technology will sculpt your new crown from a solid block of ceramic that is a perfect color-match to your smile.
Once the dentist is pleased with how the crown looks and fits, he’ll bond it onto your tooth and check your bite to ensure a comfortable fit. The result is a CEREC crown that looks and feels natural!
