What are the Benefits of CEREC® Crowns?
The main advantage of CEREC® crowns versus traditional crowns made in a dental laboratory is convenience. With traditional crowns, you may need to wait about two weeks for your crown to be milled and shipped back to the dentist’s office. CEREC® dental crowns significantly simplify the process and allow Dr. Valeri Sacknoff and Dr. Robbi Wilson to prep your tooth, craft your custom crown, and complete your restoration in a single office visit.
With that in mind, there are a number of additional benefits CEREC® crowns can provide. Most patients can have their crowns made from digital impressions, a much less messy and cumbersome process when compared to putty impressions. For teeth that are weakened from damage or decay, a CEREC® porcelain crown can strengthen the natural tooth structure and provide added support. Teeth that are affected by tooth imperfections – including cracks, chips, and fractures – can attain a healthier, more attractive appearance. CEREC® crowns will also be color-matched to the surrounding teeth for a natural blend.
