cerec Single Visit Crowns in Winter Haven, FL

CEREC is a dental restoration system that allows dental professionals at Stefani J Allison DMD to restore damaged teeth in a single visit. The CEREC system eliminates the need for messy impressions as well as the need for a temporary crown. CEREC restorations also preserve more of the healthy tooth structure than traditional crowns. CEREC restorations include crowns, inlays, onlays, and dental veneers.

When Would I Need a CEREC Procedure?

A CEREC crown is a quick and painless solution if you need a dental crown. This crown may be used to restore a badly damaged tooth that still has enough of its natural structure to support a crown. Or you might need a crown after a root canal treatment has left your tooth in a weakened state. In any case, the CEREC crown procedure can be completed in as little as one visit and requires no uncomfortable impressions. CEREC crowns are durable and will restore your smile to its natural beauty.

The Procedure for CEREC 

Traditional crowns require at least two visits. During the first visit, the Dentist in Winter Haven, FL  will take an impression of your tooth, and a temporary crown will be put in place. During the second visit, the temporary crown is removed, and your tooth is prepared for the crown. The crown is cemented in place.

Not so with CEREC. CEREC crowns can be implanted in one appointment. First, the dentist will use CEREC’s CAD/CAM technology to take a digital impression of your tooth. A 3D virtual model is created of your tooth, allowing the dentist to plan your tooth restoration. After the restoration has been designed, the information is transferred to the milling unit, where the restoration is crafted out of ceramic material. All this is done while you wait. And when the restoration is ready, it will be placed in your mouth, adjusted as needed, and then cemented into place.

The Advantage of CEREC

CEREC makes getting dental work done easier and faster than ever before. Traditionally, dental work would require multiple visits to complete. The first visit would consist of an exam and any necessary X-rays. The second visit would consist of a prepping appointment, where the dentist would numb the area. Finally, the dentist would complete the procedure with a permanent restoration such as a crown, bridge, or veneers. With CEREC, all of these steps can be completed in a single appointment.

How Long Will a CEREC Crown Last?

A CEREC crown can last for five to ten years, depending on how well you take care of it. CEREC crowns are made from durable porcelain materials, and they can withstand chewing and biting forces. However, if you grind your teeth or clench your jaw, this can cause the crown to fracture or break. To reduce your risk of damaging your CEREC crown, you should wear a mouthguard at night and during any athletic activity.
