Crowns are restorations, generally made of ceramic, placed over an existing tooth to protect and restore it after tooth decay or injury causes significant damage. In the past, crowns were made (milled) in dental labs using impressions to craft the teeth. Impressions were taken using trays and a goopy, messy impression medium that was often messy and uncomfortable. Once your dentist took the impression of the lab, you would then have to wait several weeks for the lab to receive the impression and create your crown. Once the crowns were returned, the dentist would then be able to restore your tooth, but because the impression material isn’t always completely accurate, further tooth preparation may be needed in order to place the cap. It’s not difficult to imagine why dentists and our patients would want a more efficient crown restoration process. CEREC allows the skilled team at Cosmetic & Family Dentistry to fully restore your tooth with a custom, one visit crown.
CEREC stands for Ceramic Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. CEREC, combined with digital imaging technology in our Flushing dental office, allows us to mill a custom crown right in our office easily. Using 3D digital scanning technology, we are able to create a digital impression of your tooth and share it with the CEREC system. Your precise dental replacement is milled in about an hour, allowing us to place the crown in one visit. This makes a significant difference for our patients who no longer have to spend weeks with a damaged tooth or a temporary crown. Digital imaging is also far more accurate than previous methods. Single-visit crowns from Cosmetic & Family Dentistry mean you never skip a day of smiles.
