CEREC Crowns – Material – What are they Made out of??


Firstly, what is a crown? Its a treatment for damaged and/or weakened teeth, many times due to deep cavities, where traditional filling material is not a long term solution, and it can also be a cosmetic treatment for badly stained, chipped or otherwise compromised teeth (ie Veneers). Crowns are very hard, sturdy and typically last for a very long time.

CEREC Crown Restoration is a high tech computer aided manufactured porcelain crown. Porcelain is far stonger than “white filling” material and by far more durable over the long term. Essentially creating a CEREC dental crown involves computer 3D modeling of prosthesis (new fabricated (fake) “tooth”) milled to astounding precision from a ceramic block. Often it is this method is used to make all-ceramic inlays, onlays, veneers and crowns in the anterior and posterior teeth. Ceramics enable us to attain excellence in dental aesthetics.

CEREC technology is a unique system that allows for a single visit dental procedure creating complete new dental crowns, while you wait. This means that you do not have to go to the dentist many times or wear a transient crown; thanks to this radical technology you may have a new tooth the very same day!

CEREC – Procedure step-by-step

After establishing your treatment plan, the dentist adjusts or drills if necessary the tooth being treated and scans it with a high tech CEREC camera. This indicates that you do not need to put up with the anxiety of sitting for an impression neither will you have to stress about a gag reflex. Immediately after, the CEREC unit and 3D CAD/CAM high tech software renders the tooth into 3D digital form. All you must do is just sit on the chair and watch the show. This facinating software is utilized for modeling the necessary restoration design, and then the data is sent to the CEREC “printer”‘s sanding blocks. Robotic arms etch the cube of ceramic into your new “tooth” (this now generates the ceramic dental crowns with similar structures as the tooth tissues). The dentist then places and adheres the CEREC dental crowns in your mouth. This crown functions as a full-fledged tooth and performs very well.

CEREC Crowns are an intelligent and effective single-step option!
