Have you seen the benefits of a CEREC® same-day dental crown yet? Although dental crowns are often designed for a patient with the crown being sent off for at a lab that can take weeks to deliver, CEREC dental crowns are milled directly at the dentist office and can even be placed the very same day.

CEREC same-day crowns can often be used to recover the look of your smile as well as its function. CEREC crowns also eliminate the need of temporary crowns, as they can be designed in a single visit. Not only are CEREC crowns customizable and quickly available, but they are also really durable, with many patients noting they last with heavy daily wear and tear for over a decade. If your CEREC crown should ever be knocked out, it can be without difficulty replaced or reset once more.

CEREC technology can also be employed for other dental procedures, including for dental fillings that may be needed if a cavity has formed in a tooth. Due to the materials used, CEREC fillings can closely match the appearance of your teeth for a natural aesthetic that avoids the metallic finish that dental amalgams will provide. In addition, CEREC fillings are said to be more durable than composite fillings.
