About Cerec® One-Visit Crowns
CEREC® is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic. Not only can it take quicker pictures (high-resolution 3-D imaging) of your teeth to identify exactly how a crown might fit, but it creates the impressions right there in the office. The crown is ready for placement in as little as 15 minutes. But the results can last years.
Speed. It used to take weeks to send plaster impressions to a manufacturer and then get them back for a fitting. With Cerec, the whole procedure is completed in about an hour and a half.
Precision and accuracy. Because the images taken of your teeth are done at the microscopic level, the impressions are incredibly precise. The data input by your dentist is done with the exact same level of precision. This enables the crown or filling to be milled as accurately as possible.
The ceramic material used to create your crown or filling expands and contracts as your natural teeth do. Furthermore, they are neither too hard nor too soft. There is no undue wear and you will not need to replace them time and again as you might with older crown or filling technology. They also look like your natural teeth.
One of the most important advances with using CEREC is the fact that ceramic crowns and fillings have replaced mercury and other toxic metals. By removing these metals from your mouth, the potential harm they cause has been eliminated. With all of these benefits CEREC offers, why would you consider going to a dentist who does not use it?
