CEREC crowns have transformed the concept of what it means to get a crown, allowing patients to walk in and out of the practice in single day with their smile restored. This state-of-the-art method of crafting porcelain crowns is second to none. Lander are one of the only practices in the Truro area to be offering this technology to patients and we’re thrilled to have seen a huge number of smiles restored thanks to CEREC same-day crowns.
What makes CEREC so special?
Where do we start?! There are numerous benefits associated with getting a CEREC crown as opposed to a traditional crown including:
- They’re made with you in mind
CEREC crowns are custom-created in the image of your smile. We will take digital impressions of your teeth to ensure your new crown will be a perfect fit and match the shade with the shade of your existing teeth. Porcelain is a very close match for enamel, reflecting light in the same way a natural tooth does. No-one will be able to tell the difference between your crown and your existing teeth! CEREC crowns are the most aesthetic crown you can have and feel like a real tooth.
- No more messy impressions – it’s all about digital!
Gone are the days of messy and uncomfortable impression material here at Lander! The traditional way of taking impressions (or moulds) of your teeth involves a gloopy liquid that can often induce a gag reflex in patients. CEREC technology allows us to instead, do a simple digital scan of your teeth, which means improved patient comfort and less time in the dentist’s chair.
- Super speedy solution for restoring a tooth
One of CEREC’s stand-out advantages is the speed at which they can be created. You will only need to visit us once: during the CEREC software will create a 3D image that will provide the basis for the design of your crown. This design is then sent to an on-site machine (milling machine) which will create your crown while you wait in our comfortable waiting room. As they’re made in a single appointment, you won’t need to be fitted with a temporary crown.
