Did you know you can get a crown in a day? At Iliff Family Dental, our team is trained in the revolutionary technology of CEREC. This technology provides our team the ability to be in the chair and get a crown the same day.
Just like the typical process for dental crowns a CEREC same day crown is very similar. Once your tooth and the area around the tooth is numb the tooth is prepared for a crown. Once the tooth is prepped then the magic of CEREC takes over.
Due to the digital impression the patient doesn’t have to worry about the discomfort of conventional impression materials. Digital impressions with CEREC, is simple and easy and takes less time than conventional impressions. The precise 3D models can be seen on the monitor and will impress our patients.
Once the digital impression is loaded the CEREC software designs your crown right in front of your eyes. The Cerec software creates outstanding design proposals, based on their unique algorithm. It will automatically reconstruct genuine tooth restorations that are customized for each individual patient. This saves time since the initial proposal is so accurate that you can generate the final design of your restoration in no time at all. You benefit from the simple, clearly structured and intuitive user interface. Once the design portion is completed the crown is now fabricated.
The CEREC grinding and milling units and CEREC software are completely synchronized. The grinding or milling process for your designed restorations is extremely precise and creates smooth surfaces and margins, as well as ultrafine structures. The milling and grinding process can take as little as 12 minutes. The good thing about CEREC is that there are a large variety of materials to choose from because every patient and their teeth are different. Even the strongest material, zirconium oxide, can be processed and placed in a single session
There are two great advantages of CEREC’s same day crown process. The first, is that the patient doesn’t have to worry about those pesky temporary crowns. Temporary crowns are temporarily cemented but can either fall off or crack while you are waiting for your final crown. With CEREC you don’t have to worry about temporary crowns anymore. The second advantage is that with Cerec and getting a crown done in a day you don’t have to come back for a second appointment for cementing the crown. We all have busy schedules. Wouldn’t it be great just to get everything done at once so you don’t have to come back?
