CEREC® One-Day Crowns are a type of dental crown that can be made and placed in just one dental appointment, instead of the usual two appointments required for traditional dental crowns. CEREC® (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) technology allows dentists to use computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) to create a 3D image of the tooth.
The information is used to create a customized ceramic crown in the dental office. This eliminates the need for a temporary crown and a second appointment to place the permanent crown, saving patients time and inconvenience.
One-day crowns are an excellent option for individuals with a busy schedule and imperfect teeth or those in need of restoration. In addition to their time-saving convenience, same-day crowns offer numerous benefits compared to traditional crowns. Some of these advantages include:
While traditional crowns can also be made of ceramic, same-day dental crowns are created in just a few minutes using computer technology, whereas traditional methods may take weeks or even months.
One-day crowns can be an excellent option for a variety of individuals. Here are some characteristics that make someone an ideal candidate:
Once you've had your initial consultation, you can begin your CEREC treatment at your next appointment. This is a quick and easy process that involves just a few simple steps:
First, Dr. Ruehle will clean and prepare your tooth for the crown. Next, he’ll use an intra-oral camera to create detailed digital 3D images of your teeth, allowing for the precise fabrication of your custom crown.
Once Dr. Ruehle has made any necessary touch-ups, a milling machine will shape the crown using the digital impressions as a guide. Finally, the beautiful, porcelain crown will be directly attached to your tooth using a strong dental resin.
If you're looking for a fast, effective way to protect and strengthen a damaged tooth, a CEREC one-day crown could be the perfect solution. Contact Garden Oaks Family & Cosmetic Dentistry today to learn more and schedule your appointment.
Caring for your CEREC dental crown is as simple as taking care of your natural teeth. Good oral hygiene includes brushing your teeth at least twice a day, flossing regularly, and rinsing between meals. Dentists recommend using a soft-bristled brush and non-abrasive toothpaste to prevent scratching your new restoration. It’s also best to schedule a dental check-up and cleaning every six months, or twice a year.
If your dental crown has become damaged, it’s important not to worry and don’t attempt to repair it yourself. Contact your dentist’s office as soon as possible so they can assess the damage and determine the best course of action.
CEREC one-day crowns are a great solution for patients looking for a restoration that:
You can eat and drink immediately after getting a CEREC one-day crown. However, it’s recommended to wait a few hours until the dental resin used to bond the crown has fully hardened.
With your busy schedule, it’s often difficult to commit to dental procedures that take more than one appointment to complete. At our Denton practice, Dr. Ruehle can restore and protect your tooth with a CEREC one-day crown for maximum convenience.
