What Is CEREC Dentistry?

CEREC is an advanced system for designing and producing natural-looking restorations. We take digital impressions and send them directly to our CEREC machine. From those impressions, we design a precise model of your dental crown. Once we’ve finalized the design, we send the information to our on-site milling machine, which carves your restoration out of a block of tooth-colored ceramic. Then, we finish the procedure by placing and fitting your crown, making any necessary adjustments on the spot.

Benefits of CEREC Crowns

There are many benefits of getting a CEREC crown, most of which revolve around comfort and convenience. Digital impressions replace the traditional impression-taking process using that goopy material. Since the procedure is all completed in-house without needing to wait for an outside dental lab, it only takes hour or two rather than a couple of weeks to get your restoration. This shortened timeline also means you won’t have to wear a temporary crown—you’ll walk out with your permanent dental crown that same day.

Reasons to Get a Tooth Crown

The advantages of CEREC dentistry may sound all well and good, but you might be wondering when you would need a tooth crown in the first place. Here are some of the most common conditions that could call for a dental crown:

  • Tooth weakened by decay
  • Cracked tooth
  • Broken tooth
  • Severely worn down tooth
  • Tooth with a large filling
  • Post-root canal treatment
  • Dental bridge
  • Dental implant

If any of those apply to you or you’d like to learn more about CEREC dentistry, contact Grafton Dental Care today!
