Traditional restorations can be a time-consuming repair job. In the past, dental laboratories took several weeks to create a single restoration, leaving patients with temporary crowns or bridges and an additional dental appointment. However, CEREC same-day crowns can cut out the laboratory step, eliminate the second appointment, and save you time and money. Learn more about CEREC with Dr. Robert Lantzy in Newtown, PA.
What is CEREC?
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This state-of-the-art system uses CAD and 3D technology to cut the laboratory step out of creating a custom dental restoration. Rather than taking a physical mold of the mouth, sending it to a laboratory, and waiting for your dental restoration to be shipped to your dentist’s office, CEREC allows your dentist to prepare the tooth and design and create the crown right inside of their office.
The Benefits of CEREC Same-Day Crowns
Cutting out the laboratory step saves time, effort and money. Eliminating the need for a laboratory also eliminates the fees associated with it. The ability to create the crown in just minutes rather than waiting several weeks means that a second dental appointment is not required, cutting out an additional co-pay and saving a trip. CEREC uses only the most durable and quality materials, ensuring your restoration will blend into your smile and last for many years to come.
CEREC Crowns in Newtown, PA
CEREC technology can create any porcelain dental restoration. Your dentist prepares your tooth for the crown and takes a 3D model of the mouth. The model then transfers to a computer program, which your dentist uses to design the restoration. The computer sends the design to the CEREC machine, which then carves the crown out of a ceramic block. Your dentist puts the finishing touches on the crown and can then fit and adhere it to your tooth.
