Many things can contribute to a missing or damaged tooth. Carbonated drinks and eating sugary foods on a consistent basis can play a disturbing role. These can result in deterioration of your teeth over time or cavities. The lack of oral hygiene after eating these foods or overall can impact the strength and health of your teeth.

Accidents or dangerous falls resulting in chipped teeth can also affect your confidence you’re your smile. However, with an experienced dental team, employing the right procedures and techniques to better your smile is possible. Premier Dental in Lee’s Summit offers their patients dealing with damaged teeth, the opportunity to have their teeth fixed in one day with a CEREC crown.

What Is A CEREC Crown?

CEREC, known as Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, is a form of technology that is used to provide same-day dental restorations. Damaged teeth are repaired by using natural-looking ceramic restorations. In a single visit, your teeth are assessed and prepped for the procedure. An optical impression is made, and CEREC is employed to design and create an accurate crown using this unique technology. Once this is complete, the crown is permanently bonded to the tooth within that same visit. This form of technology eliminates discomfort as well as the need to book additional appointments and wait extensively for the crown to be manufactured.


How Comparable is a CEREC Crown to a Traditional Crown?

The use of a CEREC crown is far less time-consuming. Every step can be completed within one visit. This eliminates the need to wear a temporary crown, and the discomfort that comes from wearing them. Your permanent crowns are custom-made to match your natural tooth structure, which is a step that guarantees the right fit for your tooth.

Additional advantages of a CEREC crown are its resilience and strength. In comparison to traditional methods that can be implemented, a CEREC crown, which is made with milled ceramic, lasts much longer. The robust nature of this crown, as well as its natural color to match your tooth, works cohesively to improve the appearance and beauty of your teeth. Overall, this type of crown is more visually appealing.
