How Does CEREC Work?
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic), has revolutionized how dental crowns and bridges are fabricated. It simplifies the process by precisely mapping teeth using digital technology. The CEREC machine then uses the computerized impressions to create your new, custom restoration right here in our office.
What Are Same-Day Crowns?
Same-day crowns are similar to traditional crowns. They cover the entire structure of a severely damaged, decayed, or weak tooth. The difference is in how CEREC crowns are made. Our crowns are prepared at our office, instead of a separate lab. Same-day crowns protect teeth from further harm, just like their traditional counterparts.
Dr. Strickler designs these restorations to look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Using CEREC technology means we can produce quality dental crowns through an efficient and swift process. Often, you can receive your new restoration in as little as two hours.
Why Would I Need A Same-Day Crown?
CEREC crowns are versatile. This means our dentist can offer them as a single service or combine them with other treatments, like dental implants, to help restore your smile. We work with a trusted periodontist who can place your implants with precision and skill.
Dr. Strickler may place a same-day crown to:
- Treat a fractured tooth
- Strengthen a severely worn tooth
- Treat a large filling
- Protect a tooth after a root canal
- Support a dental bridge
- Complete a dental implant
- Replace a single missing tooth
Why Would I Need a Same-Day Bridge?
Bridges are ideal for replacing several teeth lost in a row, filling the gap between nearby remaining teeth and those missing. Our CEREC bridges are created using two or more crowns, providing you with reliable tooth replacement as quickly as possible. We also offer these restorations supported by two dental implants.
By filling the space left by missing teeth, bridges help renew beauty, function, and oral health. They also keep surrounding teeth in place and restore proper biting and chewing capabilities.
What is The Same-Day Crown Process?
Dr. Strickler prepares the tooth in need of treatment with a gentle reshaping. The tooth is scanned digitally after preparation to produce a computerized 3D model. Our CEREC milling machine crafts your crown from a block of porcelain or ceramic using these digital impressions.
Once complete, our dentist adjusts your restoration if needed and cements it in place over your natural tooth. You can leave our office with a fully functional and protected tooth that looks as good as it feels!
5 Benefits of Same-Day CEREC Crowns
Previously, crowns took two appointments, and you were waiting for up to two weeks to receive your restoration. Our same-day treatment offers many advantages, including:
- Mess-free impressions
- No temporary crown needed
- Durable & aesthetic materials
- Less time spent in the dental chair
- Highly precise
How Long Will My Same-Day Crown Last?
CEREC same-day crowns are designed to withstand normal wear and tear. With proper care and caution, they can often last ten years, sometimes even longer. Be sure to brush twice a day and floss daily. Swish with an approved mouthwash to help rid your smile of harmful bacteria.
How Much Do CEREC Crowns & Bridges Cost?
Several factors can determine what you will pay. These include whether you need a crown or bridge, how many teeth need treatment, and materials used. To get an exact quote, contact our Littlestown dentist and his team to schedule a consultation.
