An improvement on a tried and tested method of placing dental crowns...
The CEREC system is a precise and efficient method for creating custom dental restorations without the wait. This is a giant leap forward for dental care. And the best part? It’s covered by most insurance plans.
Traditionally, Dr. Newman would have to take impressions with messy trays, send them away to a lab and wait for the finalized bridge or crown to be returned. This would mean multiple trips for the patient, and the possibility of wearing a temporary crown for weeks on end. It could also lead to ill-fitting restorations which cause more problems down the line.
The CEREC system changed all of this. A special blue powder is applied to your teeth and then a digital camera scans the structure of your teeth. A 3D model of your teeth and surrounding structures appear on the screen and Dr. Newman adjusts this to create the missing piece – a perfectly formed dental crown made just for you.
This design can then be milled, or manufactured, right in the dentist’s office. A special machine carves the dental restoration from a block of dental ceramic. This is a strong and durable material that is favoured around the world. In ideal circumstances, the restoration can be completed in one visit.
CEREC dental crowns are covered by most insurance plans.
If you’re worried that your insurance won’t cover this high-tech procedure, you might be surprised to learn that most providers cover this. The cost is comparable to a porcelain restoration and will last just as long with proper care.
Not just for dental crowns, CEREC technology is very versatile.
We use CEREC technology for a range of cosmetic dentistry procedures, including:
- Dental crowns
- Dental bridges
- Dental implants
- Inlays and Onlays
This cost-effective restoration method allows us to quickly and efficiently create a “cap” for any tooth. This can help to protect weakened or sensitive structures and help to maintain your natural teeth.
