When you need a dental crown, the last thing you want to do is wait. Fortunately, thanks to advances in technology, you don’t have to. At Cambrian Dental Centre in Sault Ste. Marie, we offer same-day Cerec crowns. We will tell you everything you need to know about this procedure, including the benefits and what to expect.
A Cerec crown is a type of dental crown that is made using CAD/CAM technology. A Cerec machine takes an impression of your tooth and then uses that data to create a 3D model of your tooth. From there, the machine mills your tooth out of a block of ceramic material. The entire process takes about an hour, and when it’s finished, you’ll have a brand new tooth that looks and feels just like your natural teeth.
There are many benefits of choosing the same-day Cerec crown over a traditional dental crown. First, it’s more convenient because you don’t have to come back for a second appointment to get your permanent crown placed. Second, it’s more comfortable because the procedure is completed in one visit. Third, it’s more aesthetically pleasing because the color of the ceramic can be matched to your natural teeth. And fourth, it’s stronger because it’s made out of a solid block of ceramic material.
When you come in for your appointment, the first thing we’ll do is take some digital x-rays of your mouth so we can get a better look at your tooth. Next, we’ll use our Cerec machine to take an impression of your tooth. Once we have the impression, we’ll use the machine to mill your tooth out of a block of ceramic material. The entire process will take about an hour from start to finish.
