Same Day Crowns (CEREC)
Classic Smiles is offering CEREC crowns as part of teeth restoration procedures. The use of crowns as possible replacements for natural teeth is gaining momentum. Crowns are used to restore the strength, function, and look of severely decayed or damaged teeth. Even though traditional crowns are still very effective, technology in cosmetic dentistry keeps changing all the time. The goal is to always deliver a more effective solution that costs less and takes little time to deliver results. It seems like when it comes to crowns, we already have that solution.
CEREC crowns have been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years and it's not hard to see why. Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic (CEREC) Crowns offer a wide range of benefits. They are a new state of the art teeth restoration method designed to deliver results fast. CEREC uses computer-aided design or CAD to offer patients single-day crown restorations. A traditional crown, for instance, will require at least two visits to our dental office. CEREC, on the other hand, can be done within the first appointment. This makes it one of the more convenient and versatile teeth restoration options for many patients.
How Do CEREC Crowns Compare With Traditional Crowns?
As you can imagine, there are a lot of differences between CEREC crowns and traditional crowns. First of all, CEREC crowns can save you a lot of time. As we have already noted above, it takes only one single visit to our office for a CEREC crown to be fitted. Traditional crowns will need at least two appointments. If you don't have time to schedule more than one appointment, CEREC crowns are highly advised.
The crowns will also save you money. First, two dental appointments will cost more than one. Dental procedures that can be done within the first visit are often cost-effective and CEREC crowns offer you that chance. Besides, you won't need a temporary crown for CEREC procedures. This is another expense you will be avoiding. A lot of our patients also feel that CEREC crowns tend to be a little more comfortable compared to traditional crowns. Although you will eventually get used to traditional crowns, it actually takes less time for CEREC ones to feel comfortable.
Despite these incredible benefits, CEREC crowns also have a few downsides. For example, traditional crowns are stronger and more resistant to fractures compared to CEREC crowns. In addition to this, traditional crowns fit better if there is a fracture below the gumline. Before deciding on whether to choose CEREC Crowns over traditional crowns, it is advisable to have a discussion with our team so that we can recommend the most appropriate option for you.
