Same Day Crowns with CEREC

The Dental Revolution: CEREC Crowns

CEREC technology's advent has truly revolutionized how we think about dental restorations. Gone are the days of multiple, lengthy dental appointments and the discomfort of temporary crowns. CEREC, an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, ushers in a new era where time-consuming dental procedures are streamlined into a single visit without sacrificing the quality of the dental work.

Why Crowns Have Become Essential

Dental crowns have become an essential element of modern dentistry, offering a solution for restoring and protecting damaged teeth. They act as a shield, covering the tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength, and they are especially necessary when a tooth is too damaged or decayed for fillings to be effective.

Situations Calling for a Crown

  • A tooth that has succumbed to significant decay and requires more than a filling.
  • Fractured teeth that need to be held together.
  • Teeth that are worn down from bruxism (teeth grinding) or other conditions.
  • A tooth that has undergone root canal therapy and needs reinforcement.
  • Dental implants that require a crown to complete the tooth replacement process.

The Distinctiveness of CEREC Crowns

CEREC crowns stand apart in their ability to be crafted on-site, directly in the dentist’s office. This is a stark contrast to traditional crowns, which are typically manufactured in a dental laboratory. CEREC employs 3D photography and CAD/CAM technology to assist the dentist in designing a virtual restoration without taking impressions. This digital map ensures that CEREC crowns fit with precision, blending seamlessly with the patient's natural teeth. Moreover, CEREC crowns are milled out of ceramic, a material known for its durability and aesthetic appeal, matching the color and translucency of natural teeth.

The Unparalleled Benefits of CEREC Technology

CEREC crowns are not only time-efficient but also superior in quality. The precise fit minimizes the risk of infection and decay under the crown because the digital mapping creates an almost exact replica of the natural tooth structure. Moreover, CEREC's use of ceramic material is biocompatible, less likely to cause allergic reactions, and compatible with the body's natural tissue. This makes CEREC crowns an excellent choice for those looking for a restoration that is both functional and natural-looking.

Durability Meets Aesthetics

Another remarkable advantage of CEREC crowns is their strength and aesthetic appeal. The ceramics used are known for their hardness and resistance to wear, making them a durable choice for long-term dental restoration. CEREC crowns are also less prone to fractures and can be more easily repaired than their metal counterparts. From an aesthetic standpoint, the color and texture of CEREC crowns can be matched to the surrounding teeth, creating a natural and harmonious appearance that is virtually indistinguishable from real teeth.

Detailed CEREC Crown Procedure

When you visit a dentist for a CEREC crown, the experience is thorough yet streamlined:

  • A detailed dental exam ensures a CEREC crown is the best option.
  • The tooth is reshaped to prepare for the crown, and a digital image is captured.
  • The digital image is used to create a 3D model of the tooth, which the dentist uses to design the crown right in front of you.
  • The design is then sent to the milling machine, where your crown is carved from a single ceramic block.
  • After milling, the crown is dry-fitted, adjusted if necessary, and then bonded to the tooth.
  • The dentist then checks your bite to ensure comfort and proper function.

Life with Your CEREC Crown

After receiving a CEREC crown, patients are often surprised by the simplicity of the process and the instant improvement in their smile. There is no significant recovery time required. Patients can eat, drink, and speak normally almost immediately after the procedure. The only precaution is to avoid chewy or hard foods for a couple of days if the patient experiences any residual sensitivity.

Sedation Details for a Stress-Free Experience

Chamberlain General and Sedation Dentistry in Clearwater, FL, provides CEREC same-day crowns and takes pride in making the crown procedure as stress-free as possible by offering several different sedation options:

  • Nitrous Oxide is a popular choice for those with mild anxiety. The effects wear off within minutes, allowing for a quick return to daily activities.
  • Oral Sedation, taken in pill form, is stronger and lasts longer. Patients may feel groggy for a few hours post-procedure and will require assistance getting home.
  • IV Sedation is typically used for extensive dental work or for patients with severe anxiety. The effects are immediate and can be adjusted in real time for patient comfort. After the procedure, patients may feel drowsy for several hours and will need time to recover before resuming normal activities.

Your Story is our story!

“In my 20 years of being here never have I walked into a more comfortable dental office than this one. The whole team is amazingly friendly and compassionate. I don't remember ever going to a dentist and feeling this cared for and comfortable. They truly want to save your original teeth and are not just looking to bill high procedures when they're not necessary. They deserve 6 stars.”

Haris V.

“My entire family has been going to Chamberlain Dental for years. The staff is very friendly and always helpful. Lisa (who does our teeth cleaning) is super gentle and explains everything she is doing from start to finish. Her procedures are always quick and painless. Janice (front desk) went out of her way to show me the proper steps for my at-home teeth whitening after my first two attempts alone failed miserably. And this was on a Friday afternoon, right before closing time. These are just 2 examples of how the entire staff goes above and beyond to make every visit pleasant. I highly recommend Dr. Chamberlain and his staff for all of your General Dentistry needs.”
