CEREC® Crowns versus Traditional Crowns - What's the difference?
Through out the course of your dental history, a traditional crown may be recommended. However, traditional crowns utilizing older techniques may take longer, require multiple appointments, and use temporaries. Traditional crowns require a manual impressions and must be fabricated at a dental lab, taking more time for processing and delivery.
The Modern technology of CEREC allows dentists to have the equipment and software needed to place a crown in a single visit. Impressions and temporaries are no longer needed, it's a wonderful relief of the mess and anxiety of impressions and materials. Instead, images of the tooth are taken using an innovative 3D camera and then the designing of the crown are done digitally and in-house. The crown is then fabricated in the office using a milling machine. When the crown is complete, it is placed into your mouth in one single visit.
