CEREC® technology specializes in dental crowns and fillings. If you are looking to improve your oral health by covering and concealing your damaged teeth without the need to have them extracted and replaced, CEREC dental crowns can work to improve the role of your smile and its overall aesthetics. Listed below are some frequently asked questions in regard to CEREC same-day dental crown technology:

What is the primary use of a dental crown?
– A dental crown is a dental restoration treatment that applies a shell around a broken or damaged tooth for added support and protection.

What are the incentives of CEREC dental crowns?
– CEREC dental crowns can be customized for the look shape, and function your tooth requires, as CEREC crowns are milled directly at the dentist office and can be designed and fitted in a single day.

Can CEREC technology be customized for anything other than crowns?
– Yes, the materials used for CEREC dental crowns can also be used to create dental fillings, which can mimic the natural look of teeth and provide more durability than white composite fillings.

What is the durability of CEREC dental crowns?
– A single CEREC crown can last a decade or longer.
