Dental crowns are one of the most versatile and popular dental restorations available today. Not only can they repair a broken tooth, but they can also conceal discoloured or misshapen teeth.
Traditional crowns are very reliable restorations, but they can take a couple of weeks to create and place. Fortunately, Dr Elie Alam at Painfree Dentistry offers CEREC same-day dental crowns in Parramatta, NSW!
What Is a CEREC Dental Crown?
A CEREC dental crown is just like a traditional dental crown, but only we can create it and place it in a single dental appointment. Like a traditional crown, a CEREC crown covers the tooth down to the gumline, restoring the tooth’s shape, function and appearance.
CEREC stands for “Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics”, and we use computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) to create this type of dental crown. In less than 15 minutes, your dentist can create your new dental crown and cement it in place.
How Does the Dentist Place a CEREC Crown?
- First, our team makes sure you are completely relaxed and comfortable before placing the crown. We strive to give each patient a pleasant experience in the dental chair, and we use a local anesthetic to numb the pain.
- We gently remove any decay and bacteria from the tooth to ensure it’s completely clean.
- We shape the tooth to prepare it to receive the crown.
- We take digital pictures using noninvasive 3-D imaging. Our computer’s advanced software creates a 3-D model of the tooth based on the photographs, creating a fully customised digital design.
- We send the digital design to our in-office CEREC machine to carve the crown.
- When the crown is complete, we place the crown and make sure the size, shape and fit are to the patient’s satisfaction.
A dental crown is a reliable restoration that can last for 10 to 15 years if it is well cared for and maintained with good oral hygiene and regular dental visits.
