What to expect during the CEREC crown process
Our same-day restoration procedure utilises the CEREC machine, which leverages Computer-aided design software, allowing digitised 3D screening of the teeth and surrounding areas. This offsets the need for an impression to be made, saving a significant amount of time.
Once the software platform designs your dental crown from an optical impression, the model is processed from a ceramic block by an in-house CEREC milling unit into a crown. Following this, the manufactured crown is fitted to the patient by Dr Lijesen. The swift process compared to traditional crown placement means postoperative sensitivity will be minimal, allowing comfortable tooth & gum functionality straight after the procedure.
CEREC design, a quicker alternative to conventional restoration
In cases where a patient’s tooth is severely damaged or decayed, traditional crowns offer an adequate solution for protection. The overall process can take time however, with impressions needing to be made at the initial appointment, before being sent off to a dental lab for crown manufacturing. As a result, the traditional crown process typically requires a few appointments.
In comparison, CEREC crowns can be completed within an hour. Not only this, but the material used is as strong as normal teeth, natural in appearance and highly biocompatible.
