CEREC Crowns Q & A
What is a CEREC crown?
A traditional crown is used to help correct a wide range of dental complications, and a CEREC crown is no different. In fact, CEREC crowns offer all the same benefits as regular crowns, but they’re much more efficient — cutting down the number of appointments you’d need to visit the dentist.
With a traditional crown, you typically have to have multiple office visits so that your dentist can take impressions of your teeth and send these away to a lab, where your crown is made. With the CEREC technology, Dr. Heiden can diagnose the problem, prepare the damaged tooth, and use the CEREC machine to design a crown that’s ready the same day.
What problems does a CEREC crown treat?
A CEREC crown can help address the same dental concerns that a traditional crown would treat. These problems usually have to do with the structure or function of your teeth. A CEREC crown can:
- Protect and anchor a dental bridge
- Save a weak or deteriorating tooth
- Replace a large filling
- Cover up a tooth that is oddly shaped or chipped
A CEREC crown might also be appropriate if you have an exposed tooth after a root canal procedure.
If you’re not sure if a CEREC crown is right for you, request a personalized consultation with Dr. Heiden today so he can sit down and discuss the right course of action for you.
What are the benefits of CEREC crowns?
The biggest benefit of a CEREC crown is that you can eliminate multiple dentist visits, and have your crown made and fitted in one quick appointment.
CEREC crowns look and feel just like your regular teeth. Since they’re not made of metal, they won’t show any dark lines, which are sometimes visible around the gum line with metal crowns.
They blend in beautifully with the rest of your teeth and don’t affect the function of your chewing or speaking.
To maintain your new crown, practice good oral hygiene habits and make sure to schedule regular dental visits.
With a CEREC crown, you can protect your smile and eliminate the headaches associated with multiple visits. To schedule a consultation about same-day CEREC crowns at Heiden Family Dental, call or book an appointment online today.
