Am I a Candidate for CEREC Crowns?

If you have ever been told in the past that you’re in need of a dental crown, then you would most likely be a good candidate for CEREC same-day crowns in Vienna. These restorations are ideal for patients with teeth that are broken or severely decayed to the point that not even a filling could heal it. CEREC crowns can also be used to correct cosmetic imperfections in your smile. The porcelain material from which they’re made perfectly mimics natural tooth enamel, allowing the crown to blend right in with the rest of your smile.

The CEREC Process

After your consultation with Dr. Barakat, your trusted dentist in Vienna, getting your CEREC crown takes just one appointment. First, we will prepare your tooth so that the crown fits snugly over it. Next, we’ll use a tiny digital camera to take detailed 3D impressions of your prepped tooth. The computer will then design the perfect model for your restoration. An attached milling machine will carve a perfect replica to construct a crown out of a single block of pressed ceramic. This process takes about an hour. Once it’s done, Dr. Barakat will firmly attach the crown to your tooth, and you should be good to go!

Benefits of CEREC Crowns

CEREC crowns offer a multitude of advantages over traditional crowns, such as:

  • Impressions are taken digitally without the need for that messy, putty-like substance.
  • The whole process only takes one hour-long visit to our office. You won’t have to take time out of your busy life to schedule two appointments.
  • CEREC’s milling machine is able to perfectly recreate the design of your tooth from the highly accurate images captured by the digital camera.
  • There is no longer any need for a temporary crown, which may be uncomfortable and can get easily damaged by hard or sticky foods.
  • If you take good care of your CEREC crown with daily brushing and flossing, it can last upwards of 10-15 years.
