CEREC Same Day Crowns
You don’t have to dread getting crowns, onlays, veneers, or tooth restorations any longer. CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is a modern CAD/CAM method that allows patients to get same day crowns, restorations, and more that are healthier and more resilient.
With the CEREC machine, the Treasured Smiles dentists can digitally create accurate restorations in just a single appointment. Not only is the entire tooth restoration process done in the Treasured Smiles Frankfort office, but CEREC restorations fit better, last longer, and even allow us to leave a healthy tooth structure underneath your new one.
The CEREC Procedure
With the skilled CEREC doctors at Treasured Smiles, the entire procedure is quick, simple, and so effective. First, the dentist prepares the tooth to be restored by using a special camera to take a digital impression of the tooth. The three-dimensional image with exact measurements is sent to the CAD/CAM computer.
The dentist chooses a specific shade of ceramic material to ensure that the restoration perfectly matches the patient’s existing teeth. Then, the restoration is completely digitally designed and entered into the CEREC milling machine. In a matter of minutes, the CEREC machine creates a flawless, customized restoration.
Next, the dentist tests out the fit and color of your CEREC crown, veneer, onlay, or restoration to ensure that it’s the best it can be. Any necessary adjustments are made, and then the new restoration is cemented and polished.
That’s it! With CEREC, there’s no drawn-out waiting period. You can get same day crowns and restorations in a single appointment—and that’s something to smile about.
Find out if getting a CEREC crown, restoration, veneer, or onlay is right for you by scheduling an appointment with the skilled dentists at Treasured Smiles Adult and Cosmetic Dentistry. Because the CEREC machine and procedure quickly creates incredibly durable and accurate restorations, you can feel confident about your smile in just one day.
