CEREC same-day crowns are an exciting advancement in tooth restoration. CEREC technology makes it possible to restore a damaged tooth in one day rather than waiting several weeks for a crown to be made. Your custom crown can be fabricated right in the dental office while you wait so there is no need to return for a second appointment later. CEREC Same-Day Crowns are available at Eagle Rock Family Dentistry in Los Angeles, where Dr. R.K. Chetty, Dr. Chethan Chetty, or Dr. Gizelle Pera can restore your tooth in just one day.
The technology associated with CEREC is the reason why custom tooth restorations can be created and placed all in one day. Computer-aided design (CAD) is first used to generate a digital 3D model of the teeth, eliminating the need to go through the messy process of creating a physical mold. The digital model is then transferred to a milling machine that utilizes computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) technology to fabricate a custom crown in just minutes. Once the crown is ready, it can be immediately placed over the damaged tooth.
Same-Day Crowns vs. Traditional Crowns
Whether a damaged tooth is restored with a traditional dental crown or a CEREC same-day crown, the final results are similar. The tooth will be protected against further damage and will have a strong new, outer shell for resuming normal biting and chewing functions. The primary difference is the amount of time it takes to complete the restoration process.
Traditional crowns can take weeks while a separate dental lab creates a crown based on a physical mold of the teeth. Once ready, the crown still needs to be sent back to the dental office so it can be permanently bonded in place over the affected tooth. The entire process can take multiple appointments and several weeks to complete.
A major advantage of CEREC same-day crowns is that you can leave the dentist’s office with your tooth restored on the same day you walked in. There is no waiting with the CEREC. Your tooth will be fixed in one day. Another advantage of CEREC technology is that there is no need to create a physical mold of the teeth, which can be messy, as well as uncomfortable for patients with a sensitive gag reflex.
