Benefits of CEREC versus traditional crown restoration
CEREC is more efficient
Traditional crown restorations require plaster impressions, temporary fillings, and several weeks of scheduled dentist’s appointments. Modern CEREC technology does the same job in half the time by eliminating the need for an outside lab to construct your dental crown. Everything is digital and done in-house, cutting the entire dental crown process to just 2 hours.
CEREC is more precise
CAD/CAM technology is highly accurate, which means that you get the perfect crown fit every time. Your dental crown is constructed on-screen and in-real time by trained dentists, custom-fit for your teeth.
CEREC is more durable
Regular crowns are usually made out of natural-but-fragile porcelain andmetal. CEREC crowns are made out of ceramic or zirconium, which combines the durability and resistance of metal with the natural look of porcelain. With the right care, CEREC ceramic crowns can last 10-15 years or even longer.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
