A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. Here are some key points about dental crowns:

  1. Purpose: Crowns are used to protect a weak tooth (perhaps from decay), to restore an already broken or worn tooth, to hold a dental bridge in place, to cover misshaped or severely discolored teeth, to cover a dental implant, or to make a cosmetic modification.

  2. Materials: Dental crowns can be made from various materials, including stainless steel, other metals like gold or alloys, porcelain-fused-to-metal, all-resin, or all-ceramic. The choice of material can depend on the location of the tooth, patient’s preference, cost, and the advice of the dentist.

  3. Procedure: Getting a dental crown typically requires one visit to the dentist. During this visit, the dentist will examine and prepare the tooth, then take a scan. The CEREC machine then mills the crown and is then placed into a speedfire furnace. This process typically takes 40 minutes then the crown is ready for cementation!

  4. Lifespan: With proper oral hygiene and care, dental crowns can last between 5 to 15 years or even longer.

  5. Care: Even though a crowned tooth is protected, it’s essential to maintain good oral hygiene practices to prevent gum disease or further tooth decay around the crown.

  6. Cosmetic Benefit: Apart from the protective aspect, crowns are also used for cosmetic purposes. They can provide a natural tooth appearance, enhancing the smile by covering misshaped or discolored visit

CEREC - Same Day Crowns

CEREC, which stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, is an advanced dental technology for the rapid creation of dental restorations, such as crowns, in a single visit to the dentist. Here’s what you need to know about CEREC crowns:

  1. One-Visit Restoration: Traditional crowns usually require two visits—one for impressions and placing a temporary crown, and another for placing the permanent crown. CEREC technology, however, uses CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) to design and mill a custom crown in just one visit.

  2. No Impressions Required: CEREC uses a digital scan of the mouth, eliminating the need for uncomfortable impression materials that can be unpleasant for the patient.

  3. High-Quality Ceramic: CEREC crowns are made from a solid block of ceramic or resin materials, providing a durable and aesthetically pleasing result that can be color-matched to the natural teeth.

  4. Precision: The CAD/CAM system ensures that the crown fits precisely, reducing the risk of ill-fitting restorations.

  5. Durability: CEREC crowns are known for their strength and longevity, similar to traditional crowns.

  6. Cost: The cost of CEREC crowns can be higher than traditional crowns, but considering they can be done in one visit, saving time and additional appointments, many find the extra cost justifiable.

  7. Applications: Beyond crowns, CEREC technology can also be used for inlays, onlays, and veneers.

It’s essential to note that while CEREC offers numerous advantages, not every patient or situation is suitable for a CEREC crown. A discussion with a dentist equipped with CEREC technology is necessary to determine if it’s the right solution for a specific dental need.
