One of the wonderful things about the day and age we live in is the fact new things are being developed every day to make the lives of people easier. Luckily, the same goes for the field of dentistry. At Vacek Family Dentistry, we pride ourselves in keeping up to date with the latest technology in order to benefit our patients. That is why we offer CEREC same-day crowns, a revolutionary machine that will change how you feel about crowns forever.
What CEREC same-day crowns do is offer the ability for Dr. Craig Vacek to produce a custom made crown, made specifically for you, in a single office visit from start to finish. The procedure begins with preparing your natural tooth as the doctor normally would for a crown. Your prepared tooth and the surrounding area are then scanned, and that information is sent to a computer. When the computer analyzes the information, it displays a picture of the crown that will be needed. The computer then communicates with the milling machine in our office, the machine that makes your crown. Your custom made CEREC crown is then sculpted from a single block of porcelain. The machine takes about 10-20 minutes to make your crown, and uses porcelain that matches the color of your natural tooth perfectly. Once your crown is finished, it is cemented onto your prepared tooth. In the end, you’re left with nothing but a beautiful new smile you can feel confident about, and all of it was done in one convenient appointment.
One of the great benefits of CEREC one-day crowns is the fact the crown is metal and mercury free. That way, you are not left with a mouth full of metal, and your cosmetic change is as natural looking as possible. It is also healthier for your body, as no toxins will be in your system. Another benefit is that CEREC crowns offer a stronger protection than other crowns, making it ideal for teeth toward the back of the mouth.
