What is a crown?
A cap that fits over your existing tooth to restore shape, size, and appearance.
Why would I need a crown?
- To protect a weakened tooth after a root canal
- To restore a broken or worn down tooth
- To improve the appearance of misshapen or discolored teeth
- To support a tooth with a large filling
What is CEREC?
- Advanced technology for restoring damaged teeth
- A more natural-looking solution for tooth-restorations
- Can be used to create a crown, in-lay or on-lay
How does CEREC technology work?
- CEREC uses a special camera to take an image of your tooth – No need for your dentist to take an impression.
- The image is converted into a 3d computerized model – Your dentist manipulates the model until it is just right for you
- The design of the new tooth is sent to a special milling machine – The restoration is milled out of ceramic using diamond burs
- Your dentist will bond the restoration to your existing tooth – The whole process is efficient and can be completed in one visit
Why should you choose CEREC?
- Time – CEREC crowns are created and placed in just one appointment – No need for a temporary crown while you wait for your restoration to be made
- Appearance – Tooth-colored ceramic matches your natural teeth creating more pleasing aesthetics
- Strength – CEREC milled ceramic is stronger than layered ceramic so it lasts a long time
