Broken tooth? Damaged tooth? Lost crown? Problems such as these cause plenty of stress, especially when you assume the solution is not an immediate one. However, when you are a patient at a dental practice with a CEREC system, you can take advantage of their same day crown service and repair your smile almost immediately.

What Is CEREC?

CEREC is an acronym for “chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramic,” which most dentists simply refer to as same day crowns or same day dental restorations. Through computer assisted design (CAD) and computer assisted milling (CAM), the CEREC system produces sophisticated dental restorations while patients wait.

Each restoration is customized to your unique tooth – there is no one-size-fits-all. The point of CEREC is to deliver the same benefits you would get from a dental lab in the same day. When a dental office is equipped with a CEREC system, they are using one of the most advanced dental innovations possible to make same-day restorative dentistry a reality for patients who need it.

Benefits of the CEREC system

The CEREC system offers a boatload of benefits to anyone who uses it, including:

  • Immediate repair: It can sometimes take weeks to get a restoration created and sent back to your dental office from a dental lab. But CEREC can give you your smile back in one day, which is especially amazing when you have a dental emergency. Think about it – you break a tooth, it’s unsightly, you need it fixed stat. CEREC makes that happen.
  • Customized fit: Dental labs create restorations accurately, however, there is no substitute for the kind of accuracy your dentist can deliver when creating a crown on site. Fit and appearance are flawless and natural-looking so you have a repair that is right the first time and blends in with the rest of your smile.
  • Convenient solution: If you have a meeting, date, photo, or other important activity, you won’t have to worry that your appearance will be compromised by a damaged or broken tooth. CEREC saves you from having to fit in multiple dental visits by getting all the work done in one visit.

Problems Fixed by Same Day Crowns

Yes, a CEREC machine creates same day crowns most of the time, but it can fix multiple dental problems, including:

  • Broken crown
  • Decayed tooth
  • Fractured tooth
  • Infected tooth
  • Unsightly tooth
  • Weak tooth

A CEREC restoration can last for decades with the proper care and upkeep, including a good oral hygiene routine at home and regular visits to your dentist for exams and cleanings. Getting a customized mouthguard to guard against teeth grinding and clenching habits can help prevent problems from occurring that could lead to the need for a dental restoration.
