CEREC® is top-of-the-line technology that can help you quickly restore your smile with a dental crown. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is made of a strong, reliable dental material, like ceramic or resin. It’s made perfectly for your smile and it fits neatly over your weak, discolored, severely decayed, and broken tooth.
When you restore your smile with a CEREC crown, the restoration is available during your appointment. This is different from an original dental crown. For an original crown, your dentist, Dr. John Theriot, would need to make impressions of your tooth, send those impressions to a dental lab, and wait for the dental lab technicians to create your new crown. This could take days or even weeks. With the help of CEREC, you could have your dental crown in one quick appointment.
CEREC is a high-tech computer and crown-making system that uses a picture of your tooth and surrounding teeth to create the new restoration. Your dentist uses a special software to design the dental crown perfectly for your smile. In fact, he even makes sure it’s the proper color to match your smile. The CEREC can also create a stronger dental crown compared to other types of crowns.
