The CEREC Crown Procedure
During your CEREC crown procedure, your dentist will first remove any decay from your tooth before preparing your tooth for dental imaging. This digital picture of your tooth acts as an impression for your crown, rather than the traditional impression. Once your dentist has an ideal image of your tooth, the computer and CEREC 3D software will convert the digital picture into a three-dimensional virtual model of your prepped tooth.
The restoration of your tooth is designed in-office, using computer software. The design process usually takes about five minutes, and, once it is completed, your new crown will be milled right in front of your eyes. This means that you will no longer have to go through the process of needing traditional impressions or temporary fillings.
Some of the advantages that CEREC crowns offer include:
- Aesthetically pleasing and durable results
- Biocompatible dentistry
- Impression free dentistry
- Metal-free restorations
- No follow-up appointment
- No temporary restorations
