CEREC One Day Crowns are the Most Convenient Tooth Restoration

A dental crown is a restoration that acts like a cap, which is fitted onto your tooth. A crown encloses the tooth completely below the gum line and looks and functions just like a natural tooth.

So why might you need your tooth restored with a dental crown?

What is a CEREC One Day crown?

CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is a CAD/CAM technology which allows the Southview Dental Care team to create state-of-the-art dental crowns. This advanced equipment helps us to produce long-lasting tooth restorations much faster than with standard crowns, giving our patients healthier and better looking smiles in a single day.

What makes a CEREC crown better than a traditional dental crown?

With a traditional dental crown the process would involve two separate appointments over potentially a few weeks. You would first need to have an impression taken of your tooth, and this would be sent to a lab for the crown to be created. In the meantime, you would need to wear a temporary crown until the new crown is bonded to your tooth in the second visit. Instead, a CEREC One Day crown takes minutes to create in our practice, which makes it a much more convenient choice if you’re looking to have your tooth restored:

How CEREC crowns are fitted

We use the CEREC machine to create 3D digital images of your teeth. From the scans we can design an accurate and durable ceramic restoration. You can view the digital scans on-screen, so we can discuss the treatment with you in more detail.

Once created, your custom crown will be polished then immediately fitted. Generally having a CEREC crown fitted will take about an hour and a half, which makes it much more efficient than traditional dental crowns.

CEREC crowns are made from very strong materials, so there is no need to worry about eating certain foods or damaging your crown any more than you would with your natural teeth.
Depending on your case your CEREC crown can last for around 10 years, however it’s important to maintain a good level of care to get the most out of it.

Caring for your CEREC dental crown

It’s important to keep your restoration and the surrounding teeth strong and healthy, by keeping up a proper dental care routine. You may also benefit from a regular cleaning appointment to maintain your crown, where we can examine any early signs of trouble.
