What Are Same-Day CEREC Crowns?
Why wait several weeks for your permanent crowns when you can have them fitted on the same day? Thanks to the latest in dental technology, CEREC crowns can be created in your dental office. You can get same-day CEREC crowns from Dr. Michael Gigliotti and Dr. Jared Gittleman at Hudson Family Dental.
Frequently Asked Questions Same-Day CEREC Crowns
Here are some questions Hudson dental patients ask us about Cerec crowns.
What are CEREC crowns?
A crown is a prosthetic cap that completely covers an existing to down to the gum line. They restore the function and strength of a weakened or damaged tooth. What makes CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) crowns different is that you don’t need temporary crowns while you wait for your permanent crowns to be made in a lab. CEREC permanent crowns can be fitted on the same day.
What are CEREC crowns used to treat?
CEREC same-day crowns can be used to treat broken, injured, fractured or chipped teeth, as well as teeth that have been weakened by decay.
Will a CEREC crown look natural?
You can rest assured that your new CEREC crown will look perfectly natural because each crown is customized to match the contours, color, and size of your existing teeth.
What are the benefits of CEREC crowns over regular crowns?
The most obvious advantage is being to get your crowns fitted with only one dental office visit. But you will also not need to wear a temporary crown, so you get the best strength and function in your new crown straight away.
How long do CEREC same-day crowns last?
If you practice good oral hygiene at home and visit your dentist at least twice each year for check-ups, CEREC crowns can last for over ten years.
