Are CEREC Crowns Better Than Traditional Crowns?

Dental crowns are used by your dentist to treat damaged teeth, restoring them as much as possible to their original shape and function. At Long Island Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry, we are proud to offer our patients– CEREC same-day dental crowns, which are faster and more expedient to apply than traditional crowns. In addition, they perform well and provide lasting results for the patient. In many ways, they offer clear advantages over traditional braces. If you are considering them– here are some facts:

CEREC crowns provide exceptional results

Patients consistently report being fully satisfied with their CEREC crowns. These high-quality, custom-made fabrications will effectively match the look, feel, and function of your natural teeth. The ceramic material used to create the crowns is very strong and should hold up well for many years. No metal is used in your crowns, so you don’t have to worry about allergic reactions.

CEREC crowns can be applied in a single visit

Most of the time, your CEREC crown treatment can be completed within a single visit to your dentist’s office. This is highly convenient, as it relieves you of the need to schedule more than one appointment. It also cuts down on the amount of time you will need to spend in your dentist’s chair. Traditional crowns, by contrast, usually require multiple appointments.

They do not require physical impressions

Instead of the physical impressions required for traditional crowns, your dentist will create your CEREC crowns by taking a detailed digital impression of your teeth. Not only is this more convenient–and less cumbersome– for the patient, but it also helps to ensure more accurate results. This, in turn, helps ensure that your crowns will provide you with the performance you deserve.

They can match your natural teeth

Understandably, patients want their dental crowns to blend in with the rest of their teeth rather than standing out. Traditional crowns can now be made to match the natural color of your teeth so that they will not be conspicuous.
