In this day and age of fast-paced lifestyles, the opportunity to save time is always a welcomed treat. We, at Belmont Dental Care, are very happy to offer our patients CEREC® one visit crowns, a dental restorative treatment considered to be an innovation in the dental industry. CEREC®, also known as Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, is a computer aided system that allows the dentist to design, fabricate, and bond your dental restoration within one day. You and I both save time. You don’t need to allot time for a separate appointment for the bonding of your dental restoration. We, on the other hand, can attend to more patients who need our services than when the traditional method was used. CEREC brings all of us convenience, allowing you to get the dental restorations necessary while minimizing your time spent on the dentist’s chair.
CEREC® One Visit Crowns vs. Traditional Crown Restoration
CEREC® uses CAD/CAM technology to design, fabricate, and then bond your dental crowns in the same day. First, the doctor takes a digital impression of your teeth and then sends this information to the computer. A dental crown design is created by the computer, based on the information given. The doctor studies and perfects the design. He then sends the design to a milling unit that creates your restoration right on the spot. It only takes a few minutes to get your crowns fabricated. Once this is done, the dentist bonds the dental crowns on your teeth. You get your teeth restored in the same day that the impressions were taken.
Traditional crown restoration involves 2 to 3 appointments to complete the entire restorative procedure. The dentist takes impressions of your teeth. These impressions are actual physical models that will be sent to a dental lab. The dental lab then fabricates your dental crowns, usually taking about a week or two, to get them done. You, therefore, need to schedule a separate appointment for the actual bonding of your dental crowns. During this time, you will be fitted with temporaries until your permanent crowns are bonded. What do you think of this old process? It’s not only time consuming, but also gives you inconvenience as you need to wear temporary crowns while your permanent crowns are being created.
CEREC® makes dental crown placement a quick restorative procedure because the designing, manufacturing, fitting, and dental crown bonding can all be done in 1 day.
How Long Does it Take to Have CEREC® One Visit Crowns?
Since CEREC® is computer aided, the process doesn’t take long, often taking between one to two hours. Your restorations are done quickly, while you get increased precision and accuracy.
CEREC is Not Just for Dental Crowns
Dentists also use CEREC® for other types of restorative procedures such as inlays, onlays, and dental veneers. This makes CEREC® a versatile system that allows the dentist to provide fast and efficient restorative procedures.
