What Are CEREC Crowns?
CEREC, short for CERamic REConstruction. CEREC is a 3D chairside design and milling technology that allows dental professionals to create dental crowns right in-office! CEREC crowns are made using computer-assisted technology, a sophisticated milling machine, and a solid block of porcelain. The CEREC software develops an accurate map of the teeth and the space they occupy and allows your dental provider to design dental caps that are metal-free, fit precisely, and feel like real teeth.
Benefits of CEREC Crowns
CEREC dental caps are made of porcelain, is a beautiful material that closely resembles the enamel on your teeth. Your new crowns will be created from a durable block of porcelain, leaving you with strong dental restorations that will last for years to come. Furthermore, your dental caps will be designed and milled right in our office within one just one visit.
CEREC dental restorations are a great long-term option because they're durable and generally last for a decade or more. To achieve this goal, however, you will need to maintain a high level of oral hygiene. Keep your smile healthy by cleaning your teeth regularly—especially around the dental caps. Using mouth rinses can also help. To prevent damage to your new CEREC dental caps, avoid chewing hard foods, ice, or hard candy. Remember to visit a dental practitioner regularly for dental checkups and professional teeth cleanings.
