Advantages of Same Day CEREC Crowns

CEREC San Francisco, CA

Same Day CEREC® is a lifesaver for many busy individuals. Perhaps you have been given short notice to appear as a guest on a television show, or you need to look great for your next interview; thanks to advancements in dental technology, it only takes a visit to the dentist's clinic to restore your smile.

Understanding Same Day CEREC procedures

The most obvious advantages of same-day CEREC® are spending less time on dental treatments and the convenience of getting oral problems addressed with a single visit to the dentist. The benefits of CEREC do not stop there though. Here are five other advantages of Same Day CEREC:

1. Instantly restores the function of the tooth

The condition of a person's teeth affects the way they smile, talk, and eat. During regular dental treatments, patients are often fitted with a temporary crown while they wait for a laboratory to manufacture their customized prosthetic. The end result is a patient who has to be very careful when speaking or talking. Failing to do so could lead to the temporary crown being damaged.

With same-day prosthetics, the patient gets a permanent prosthetic that fits perfectly in their mouth.

2. Saves money

Scheduling multiple dental appointments and getting temporary devices costs money. There is the money the patient spends on the wasteful temporary prosthetic and extra dental appointments, then, there is the money lost by taking time off work or other sources of income.

3. Comfort

Temporary crowns are typically made out of a combination of materials and these rarely ever fit properly. That makes them somewhat uncomfortable. With CEREC, dental prosthetics are made out of a single block of raw material like ceramic or porcelain. That leads to a structurally uniform and stronger prosthetic.

CEREC-made products are not only more durable than temporary devices, they are also stronger and better customized than the products made in laboratories.

4. Prevents decay

Given the poor fit that is often associated with temporary prosthetics, the newly-repaired tooth remains susceptible to decay and further damage until the permanent device is installed. With CEREC, a tooth is protected immediately after being restored. That improves the odds of success of procedures like root canals. Getting fitted with a customized prosthetic that provides immediate dentinal sealing also reduces the tooth sensitivity that is often associated with such treatments.

5. Customized in-office matching

CEREC utilizes computer-aided manufacturing and computer-assisted design to create prosthetics while the patient waits in the dental chair. It uses digital imaging to create a 3D impression of the person's teeth.

CEREC technology also allows dentists to create detailed projections of what the patient's mouth will look like when the device is installed. This makes it easier for the dentist and patient to match the color of the crown with the color of the patient's natural teeth.

Wrapping up

If you are a very busy person, multiple visits to a dentist for a dental prosthetic are the last thing you want. Same day CEREC® crowns make the process of getting dental devices less complicated and a lot easier to fit into your busy routine. Less time spent on dental appointment equals more money in your pockets.
