CEREC® Q & A

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a permanent cover or cap that surrounds your tooth. Made from a variety of materials — including all-metal, ceramic-on-metal, or all-ceramic — a crown's location determines the best option for use. Ceramic-on-metal offers a natural look with durability, but highly visible areas appear most natural when all-ceramic.

Crowns can be used to save a decaying tooth, add protection to a damaged tooth, improve the alignment of your bite, or cover a dental implant.

 

What is CEREC® one-day dentistry?

Usually, dental restoration is a process that requires multiple appointments — possibly even weeks apart. Sometimes, these intervals of time are necessary for incisions, bones, or tissues to heal after a dental procedure. However, the processing time at a dental lab is usually the most significant cause of waiting.

Any prostheses must be sent out to the lab for the work to be done. Once this is complete, the appliances are sent back to the dentist for installation. Adirondack Dental Group uses CEREC®'s on-site milling lab to create precision crowns while you're in the office.

 

What are the benefits of a dental restoration?

Missing teeth impact your smile and can lead to structural changes within your mouth as your teeth shift into open spaces. Additional benefits of a quality dental restoration piece include:

  • Maintaining your face shape
  • Helping you chew food properly
  • Keeping your bite in place
  • Preserving your oral health

Furthermore, being proactive about your dental health, and choosing dental restorations like CEREC® one-day crowns, prevents your condition from worsening.

 

What can I expect during my CEREC® appointment?

When most dentists tell you that you need a crown, you make multiple appointments. But Adirondack Dental Group uses CEREC®, a technological innovation that enables complete tooth restoration in a single office visit.

During your appointment, your provider at Adirondack Dental Group uses the state-of-the-art technology offered by CEREC® to create an optical impression of your tooth. The information from this 3D impression is used to craft your dental restoration.

After your design is complete, the team uses CEREC®'s computer-automated milling machine to make your custom-made ceramic prosthetic. When your crown is finished, your doctor completes your restoration by bonding or cementing it into place.
