What Differentiates Traditional & CEREC Crowns?
Traditional and CEREC crowns are alike in that they are both dental restorations that fully cover the exposed areas of a damaged or decayed tooth. Your crown protects the tooth from further damage.
Traditional Crowns: If you receive a traditional crown, you must make two appointments. During your first visit, the dentist takes a quick dental impression. Your dental impression is forwarded to a dental lab, which then begins crafting your custom-fitted crown. On average, it takes two weeks to create your crown. While you await your custom restoration, a temporary crown is placed on the damaged tooth.
CEREC Same-Day Crowns: We can provide you with a custom-fitted porcelain crown in a single visit to our office. Using precise digital imaging, we can determine the exact size and shape your crown needs to be. Our CEREC milling machine carves your unique crown out of a solid block of porcelain, using a 3D model for guidance.
As soon as your crown is ready, our dentist carefully fits it into place and makes sure it's comfortable. Due to the CEREC process's precision, it's likely that your crown won't need significant adjustments. Your crown is created from high-quality porcelain and should last for many years.
What are Same-Day Crowns Used For?
Similar to traditional crowns, CEREC crowns can be used for cosmetic or restorative purposes. However, due to how quickly you can receive a same-day crown, they have a much larger role in emergency dentistry. Whether you chip a tooth and are looking for a quick fix or need to undergo an urgent root canal therapy treatment, you can swiftly receive a comfortable, fitted same-day crown at our Mankato office. Our patients require crowns to:
- Restore chipped or cracked teeth
- Support a dental bridge
- Protect a tooth after root canal therapy
- Improve discolored teeth
- Treat dental emergencies
Implant Crowns to Replace Missing Teeth
A unique type of CEREC crown, called an implant crown, can replace a missing tooth. Your implant crown attaches directly to a dental implant, an artificial tooth root crafted from titanium. The implant crown mimics the structure, size, and shape of a natural tooth. We work with your dental specialist to provide you with an implant crown after you've recovered from your implant procedure.
Benefits of Receiving a CEREC Same-Day Crown
Same-day crowns allow us to smoothly restore the aesthetics and functionality of your one-of-a-kind smile. When you elect to receive a CEREC crown from our Mankato practice, you benefit from:
In the space of a few hours, you'll have a crown that fits well and allows you to go back to your regular routine. You won't need to schedule additional appointments or miss time at work to receive your unique dental restoration.
Dental-grade porcelain is robust and durable. Your crown is designed to provide your tooth with the maximum amount of protection. If you maintain good oral hygiene and regularly visit our dentist for scheduled cleanings, your crown could last a decade or longer.
Porcelain restorations match the color of your healthy teeth as closely as possible. Your crown enhances your tooth by restoring its natural size, shape, and color so that it doesn't look out of place.
